    • Archie: (to Russell) Just remember what you got waitin' for you back at my place: a nice wife with fifteen pounds off her kiester.

    • Edith: (telling Archie why she envies Russell's treatment of Amelia) It's all the little things he does for her... Archie: Hey, nobody does littler things for you than me.
