    • (the power goes out) Ricky: Dad, what's going on here? Edward: Oh, Rick, the storm has knocked out the electricity. Just stand still, Son, and don't try to...(crashing) to move. Ricky: I'm okay. I just hit something. I don't know what it was, though. Grandfather: It was me!

    • Grandfather: Richard, if your father had taken my advice, he would've profited greatly, financially. Ricky: We have enough money, Grandfather. Grandfather: He has poisoned you.

    • Edward (to Grandfather Stratton) What--What are you talking about? Ricky: He's trying to fix you up, Dad. Is this lady good-looking? Is she a fox? Grandfather: I have no idea if she's a fox. I do know she has a pair of the biggest coal mines in the country.

    • Ricky: Dexter, would you like to come fishing with me sometime? Dexter: I'm afraid that's impossible. I'm allergic to recreation.

    • Grandfather: Edward, your always moaning and mewling about the fact that we don't have father and son chats. I thought this would be a perfect occasion to correct that. Edward: That's nice. I'd love to have warm, emotional father, son (turns to Dexter) and accountant chat. Ricky: That's an improvement over the normal father-son-referee chats.
