    • Doug: Charlie Rose? You know this is PBS? Carrie: We never watch anything to broaden our minds. Maybe this will give us something to talk about. Doug: We watch TV so we don't have to talk.

    • Arthur: Shame on you, Carrie. I've pushed tons of people down the stairs, but damn it, I always own up to it.

    • Carrie: How was your physical therapy? Doug: Not so good. I had some deep tissue work done on my inner thigh while I went to my safe place.

    • Arthur: (to Doug) You play the part of the lumbering imbecile quite well.
