- Trivia & Quotes
Ted: (sees Jamie dribbling the basketball in the kitchen) Hold it! What did I just say about playing with that in here?
Jamie: Sorry, Dad. Bad habits are hard to break.
Ted: (in a strong warning voice) Well, if you don't break that bad habit before you break something in the house, I just liable to break something over your rear end.
Jamie: (looking nervous and saying nothing)
Vicki: His rear end gets the message.
Jamie: If I'm lying, may I be hit by lightning on this very spot! (looks up)
Ted: (to Joan) Stand back, Honey.(backs away)
Jamie: (nothing happens) See?
Ted: (to Joan) I'll say one thing for him, he's got guts.
Joan: (thinking Jamie broke the teapot)Jamie, I think we just solved the mystery of my lamp with the cross-eyed angel.
Vicki: And the pigeon toads.
Jamie: Now, one broken thing at a time.
Jamie: (to Vicki while glueing the teapot back together) Last month, I broke my mom's antique lamp and I never got caught. I was lucky.
Jamie: Yeah, cause after I glued the pieces back together, the angel on the lamp was pigeon toad and crossed-eyed.
Joan: Am I imagining things or is that teapot leaking?
Jamie: (nervous) You're imagining things!
Ted: It sure is leaking, Honey.
Vicki: It sure is leaking, Honey.
Joan: I can't understand it, I just bought it.(teapot suddenly falls apart) It's falling apart!
Ted: Well, no wonder. This thing was glued together.
Jamie: They sure don't make teapots like they used to.
Ted: (looks at Jamie suspiciously) I have a feeling this teapot became defective after it was sold.
