  • A pretty funny episode. I give it 9.5 and the ending with Ray, Robert and Marie was really funny.

    • Raymond: (to Marie about Frank) Why should I worry about his feelings? He doesn't care about anybody else's.
      Marie: You don't think he cares about you? He's your father. He just isn't good at uh...
      Raymond: Living among humans.
      Marie: You know, I think you're the only one who thinks you're funny.
      Robert: Amen to that.

    • Debra: (to Raymond)I know your father can be a real jerk sometimes.
      Marie: Right, no one is arguing that. He's a bully and he's obstinate and he doesn't bathe everyday. But I know that man and I know he needs one thing. He needs to be needed. Do with that what you will.(exits the house)
      Robert: (to Raymond after a long pause) He's your father.

    • Raymond: (to Robert about Debra) You hear this, okay? This is marriage. This is what you want? This is what you can't live without?
      Robert: Step aside.

    • Marie: Your father never retired from Pelk Accounting.
      Raymond: What are you talking about?
      Robert: If he's not retired, why does he buy his pants at the pharmacy?
      Marie: He told me he retired, but I found out the truth. They fired him.
      Raymond: What? Why?
      Marie: Why? I have to tell you? Why did you fire him? Your father believes that his way of doing things is the only way. And after 25 years, it starts to get on people's nerves.

    • Robert: There's a wasp nest near the down spout. Frank: Then knock it down. Robert: They're wasps, they don't like that.
