  • Too much dialogue! For some reason, there just wasn't enough going on in this episode to make it exciting.

  • Quotes (8)

    • Sam: I miss Mom, but she would never let us have hamsters. David: Yeah. I miss Mom too, but I like just having us guys in the house. Sam: Me too. David: We get to have hamsters, and we don't have to go to school anymore. Sam: And we get to eat hot dogs all the time! David: And I haven't taken a bath in three days! Sam: Neither have I. But I brushed my teeth. David: Yeah. Teeth are important....the rest of the body just takes care of itself.

    • Eric: You can think of how you want to feel and act as if you actually feel that way, and you will feel that way. You can decide that your feelings are completely inappropriate and choose some other feelings. Ms. Margo: What if I don't want to choose? What if I want to feel what I feel? What if I want to follow my heart? Eric: What if you let your mind lead what you want your heart to follow? And what if you choose good things for yourself? What if you even love yourself? Ms. Margo: Hey, what if you love me? Eric: But I don't. I don't love you, Ms. Margo. I don't want to love you. Ms. Margo: Could you choose to love me? Eric: (long pause) I could...but I'm not going to. Why would I? I love my wife. I love my children. I love my grandchildren. I even love myself.

    • Eric: (after walking into the house and having Kevin standing behind him) Can't a man come home without being surprised by a Kinkirk? Kevin: I'm sorry. I brought the boys over to our house and told Lucy that you and I were having dinner together. We are having dinner together, Dad. Eric: Would you two please get off my back? I am not having an affair with the boys' teacher! Kevin: Okay....but we're still having dinner together. Eric: Let's see, how can I put this? Oh, I know....you're not the boss of me! Kevin: I didn't say I was. Eric: You seem to think you are. Kevin: We need to talk, Dad. Eric: We don't need to talk. If we needed to talk, we'd be talking. Now, please go get my sons and bring them back to my house. Kevin: What is wrong with you? Eric: Nothing is wrong with me! Are you going to get my sons, or do I need to go get them myself? Kevin: Hold on just a second. Eric: (getting angry) Get out of my way. Kevin: I'll go get them, I promise. I'm on my way to get them right now. I shouldn't have brought them to my house. I'm sorry, I'm really very sorry. That was the wrong thing to do. Eric: Yes, it was. Kevin: (pauses, looks defeated) I'll be right back.

    • Eric: She's a good daughter, that Lucy. And a good sister....and a good wife, and a good mother. Sam: That's because you're a good dad. David: The best! Eric: (starts crying) Thank you....I'm sorry. I just....that is so nice of you guys. Thank you! David: Can we get a pony?

    • Lucy: So what did you guys name your hamsters? David: I named mine Jesus. Lucy: Jesus? David: Yeah, because it's a miracle I got a hamster! Lucy: (perplexed, turns to Sam) And what's your hamster's name? Sam: Mom. Lucy: Awww. Because you miss Mom? Sam: No. I just like that name.
