    • Alan: So, in addition to my house, half my money, and my self-esteem, Judith got custody of all my friends.

    • Rose: Believe me, Alan. I understand how hurtful it is to be rejected by Charlie. And I've found that the only way to get through it, is to just love him more. That, and every so often, sneak into his bedroom and try on his underwear.

    • Charlie: (about Alan) Yes, but how is that relevant? Harry Dean Stanton: Let me tell you something about relevant. The root word is (pauses)...rel. Rel is also the root word in relative. Ergo, relative is relevant. ...(After a long pause) Rel is also the root word in relapse.
