    • Mary: I have one son who's about to become my daughter, another son whom people are trying to kill, I have a lunatic stepson and a dummy living in my home and a husband who won't make love to me. That's not life, that's something by Tennessee Williams!

    • Barney: I'm thinking of having [sex change operation] next week. I heard that women live longer.

    • Barney: Incredible! Since I've been here, there has been a movie producer, a longshoreman, and a hockey player and none of them could get to first base with that cutie, but then, without even trying, a fagula gets to first base with that cutie!

    • Mary: (contemplating Jodie's homosexuality) Psychiatrists get rich from blaming mothers.

    • Narrator: (Opening Narration) In Last week's episode of Soap, Danny, unable to kill Burt, now has to run for his life so the Mob wont kill him. Since this news would kill his mother, Danny told her that he was going off to be a spy. So far he has been able to fool Mary, but not the Mob, because when Danny appeared in disguise at the Tate dinner party, the Mob tried to kill him. Fortunately, Danny got away. Unfortunately, Bob the dummy got hit. Confused? you wont be after this week's episode of Soap.
