  • Quotes

    • George: You know Albert is a Binnaum.
      Matt: Yeah and he gets to go around popping newcomers wives so they can get pregnant.
      Albert: I'm just the catalyst. Their husbands …….. pop them.

    • Susan: (about Buck) He is twenty years old, George, and he's not even dating. All his friends are male, you know what I mean.
      George: There's nothing wrong with dating males. You're not failing into that human Hydrophobia thing, are you?
      Susan: Homophobia, George. No, that's not what I'm talking about.

    • Matt: Oh, George, I can't go back to that class again. All that touchy feely and personal stuff. They made me hold hands and hum.
      George: Matt, you can't always count on a cheap meal and intoxicating beverage to substitute for foreplay.

    • Matt: Look, Cathy, sex is something you do. It's not something you sit around and talk about in front of a bunch of strangers.
      Cathy: Sex is the most natural form of expression that there is, why are you so embarrassed by it?
      Matt: Look, let's just try it my way, just one more time. A little wine, a little sour milk, some music. We'll take it slow and easy. (Cathy looks at him) All right, a lot of wine, a lot of sour milk. But we don't need these other guys…
      Cathy: (interrupting) We need to understand each other's bodies, Matt, ignorance is not bliss.
