  • Jake annoys everyone with the Smoke on the Water riff. Something's bothering him, & Alan and Judith think he is having trouble "processing his emotions." Charlie thinks Jake will open up to him, the 'cool' uncle, but no. Berta thinks he's constipated.

    • Evelyn: Granted, I have no idea what's it like to be an eleven-year-old boy, but I do know one thing, sweetheart. You have no idea what real unhappiness is. Real unhappiness is being totally ignored by the very people you gave birth to! Real unhappiness is when you're recovering from liposuction and your only grandson doesn't even send you a get-well card. And FYI, I only had that surgery so you wouldn't have a grandmommy with matronly upper arms. Alan: Well, if he didn't need a shrink before, he needs one now.

    • Berta: (trying to convince Alan that his son may be constipated) I'm telling you, my youngest once ate a whole can of Play-Doh—stopped her up for two weeks! Alan: All right, Berta. Berta: She finally pooped out a whole ashtray. Alan: Berta! Berta: That was the day I quit smoking.

    • Charlie: I'm telling you, you're spoiling the kid. I didn't have a shrink when I was Jake's age, and my childhood was twice as screwed up as his. I mean, you're a little cuckoo, Judith, but compared to our mother, you're like a fart in a hurricane.

    • Berta: I hope you don't mind, but I talked to him before he went to sleep last night. Charlie: What did you say? Berta: I said, uh, "drink this bottle of prune juice."

    • Berta: Did you check to see if he’s constipated? Alan: Berta, his mother and I are going thorough a divorce and there’s a lot of emotions he hasn’t processed. Berta: Maybe so, but there’s also a lot of sting cheese he hasn’t processed.
