    • Adam: Greg did all the hard work here today. I didn't do that much at all. Of course, that doesn't make it any cheaper.

    • Jimmy: Oh, so you're saying all our problems can be traced back to that summer? Adam: Yeah, pretty much. Jimmy: Hey, can you tell me why I'm afraid of penguins? Adam: Ever been taught by nuns? Jimmy: Yeah—whoa, this guy's good.

    • Greg: They took my magazines, they stole my radio, they ripped up my mail. I mean, those two made every day at that summer camp a living, breathing hell. I... guess I just never got over it. Kim: Greg, I'm so sorry. Adam: Wow! That took tremendous courage. What a breakthrough, huh?! Christine: Yeah, Doctor, I don't mean to bring the party down here, but, um, not exactly a scientific breakthrough to reveal that Greg, here, is a wuss.

    • Greg: Mary and William—they were like Bonnie and Clyde. They'd been thrown out of five fresh-air camps that summer. Mine was their last stop before juvenile hall.

    • Greg: So now I'm going to have to spend a fortune so you can dredge up pain from my childhood. Adam: Well, it may sound silly, but if you're willing to open up, maybe we can uncover some events that will explain your behavior today. Christine: Greg, we've all got shovels, but only you can tell us where to dig.

    Allusions (2)

    • Asked if he knows what "disaffected" means, Jimmy replies he, "saw some guy use it the other day on Oprah. She hugged him so hard he turned the color purple." This is a sly reference to Steven Spielberg's 1985 film The Color Purple, which starred Oprah Winfrey.

    • The whole therapy session ends up playing out like the movie The Usual Suspects, starring Kevin Spacey. Greg makes up the whole story from items in the therapy room, as Kevin Spacey's character makes his story up from items in the police officer's office. Greg even limps off like Kevin Spacey's character and then, with a smirk on his face, changes pace to a full stride.
