  • Quotes (10)

    • Larry: To hold to one assumption, to exclude any and all contradictory data, that isn't science, that's politics.

    • Charlie: Let's all sit down at a ouija board and solve P vs NP once and for all.

    • (Don and Charlie are quarreling over the validity of the psychic's powers. A loud thud is heard in the background. The arguing stops.) Don: That's mom's picture. Charlie: Oh, don't start to say that meant something, okay? Don: Come on, that's spooky. Alan: You know your mother never liked it when you guys argued.

    • Larry: To misquote Shakespeare here, there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in all your mathematics. Charlie: Shakespeare also had people sprouting donkey ears and wood fairies running through his forest.

    • Samuel Kraft: I feel a bit like a prized show dog and you're asking me to go fetch a stick.
