  • Quotes (4)

    • Woody: What just happened? Cliff: You got smarter. Woody: So that's what it feels like.

    • Cliff: it's sad to say that kids unaccepted by their peers really never learn how to get along with people in the big grown up world. Norm: Why is that, Cliff? Cause they keep boring everyone an driving them crazy with long speeches filled with meaningless statistics. Cliff: Yep! 63% of them live lives of quiet desperation. Norm: How about those who sit next to them?

    • Frasier: Lud, that's Carla's son by Bennett Ludlow. He's a cute little tyke. Lilith: Carla, bore a son to Bennett Ludlow, the eminent psychiatrist and you're mentor?! Oh this is prime dish. I can't wait to tell the girls in the sleep disorder lab.

    • Cliff: You know any female that rides around with Sammy in the car ends up going straight to bed with him. Rebecca: I've ridden in that car. Norm: Right. Rebecca: Well I didn't go to bed with him. Norm: Right and they always deny it afterwards.

    Allusions (1)

    • Sam: So you still cramming that high-Q stuff in your head? Carla: Sammy I don't have any choice! Ever since Dr. Cyclops and Morticia started introducing Lud to all this culture crap it's like I don't have anything to talk to him about! Carla refers to Lilith as Morticia, the matriarch of the popular sitcom "The Addams Family." Bebe Neuwirth would later play Morticia Addams in a Broadway adaptation of "The Addams Family" starting in spring 2010.
