  • This is one of the episodes that sticks in my mind when I think of how the show dealt with social issues like drugs

    • Chet: Are you guys mad about something? Roy: He is, I'm not. Chet: Well, what's his problem? Roy: My wife's cousin. I fixed him up with her for dinner last night. Chet: And she turned out to be a dog, right? Never fails. Roy: As a matter of fact, she turned out to be a real doll. Chet: Well, then what is he mad about? Roy: He struck out as usual. Chet: Well, that's tough, but how come it's your fault? Roy: That's right. (Turning to Johnny) How did it turn out to be my fault that you struck out? Johnny: I never said it was your fault. Roy: Well, then why are you mad at me? Johnny: All right. You wanna know why I'm mad at you? I mean do you-- (pauses for a few moments) Roy: Well? Johnny: Don't rush me. I'm tryin' to figure it out. These quotes actually go to the previous episode, "Dinner Date."
