    • Ted: I'm not taking David to a shrink!
      Mary: Ted, come on, it's just a child psychologist.
      Ted: I don't care how old he is.

    • Psychologist: (about David) It appears he is in the genius category. He has an IQ of 160.
      Ted: 160? That's more than mine.
      Georgette: Yes, double.

    • Ted: I got to use your office, just for a few minutes.
      Lou: What do you want my office for?
      Ted: I've got to spank my kid.
      Lou: You don't want to spank David.
      Ted: Yes I do. Have you got a hairbrush handy?
      David: What would he be doing with a hairbrush?
      Lou: Go ahead, spank him!

    • David: Where are we going? Ted: To get spanked. David: C'mon Dad, that's old fashioned. Ted: So am I.
