Meathead: You called me "Michael!" Isn't that nice?
Archie: Yeah, well, what the hell. It's Christmas.
Mike: (after Archie runs into the glass sliding door off the patio) I thought you were going to stay out there.
Archie: What am I, a bush?
Gloria: Michael, I want to thank you.
Michael: Gloria I hate to carry on this pretense. We have to tell them.
Gloria: Please, just go on a couple more days. I want them to enjoy Christmas.
Michael: Sooner or later they're going to find out that we're separated.
Edith: (about California) Maybe when you're retired we can come out here to live.
Archie: People don't come out here to live. They come out here to die.
Archie: (when Edith falls on him, reaching for the light) No, Edith, I'm too weak!
Edith: (singing) Si-i-i-lent Night…!
Archie: Let's keep it that way!
Michael: (to Gloria) You know something? Not only are you totally brainless, but since I moved out, you got fat! (Gloria slaps his face)
Gloria: Michael Stivic, you are an ass.
Mike: A what?
Gloria: You're an aaaaaaaaasuh.
Edith: (looking out at Mike & Gloria's neighbors) Are those people poor? They're all sharing the same cigarette.
