    • Lou: I'm old-fashioned, I admit it, but I still don't think that men an women belong in each other's locker rooms. I've got a lot of crazy ideas like that. I still think a man should open a door for a woman.
      Lois: Unless it's the door to a locker room, right?

    • Charlie: My convention is over and nobody was killed.
      Mrs. Pynchon: The hallmark of a good convention.
