    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Although he does not actually eat the pig ribs, it is interesting that Ben would use the pig ribs as an example of over-eating, given the fact that he is Jewish and therefore forbidden from eating pork.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Laura: Have fun, and happy birthday.
        Ben: What's that supposed to mean? Is that some sort of sideways insult? Are you saying I'm fat?

      • (calling from his office)
        Dr. Katz: Hi, Ben.
        Ben: Dad, quiet down. Bird's sleeping. Wait a minute, you don't have to. I have to be quiet.

      • Laura: What I need for you to do is take the bird during the day – when I'm in the office -- and then, when the work day is over, I need you to bring it back to me so I can take it home. And I need you to do that for me all week.
        Ben: You know, it's an honor just to be asked.
        Laura: Ben, will you do it?
        Ben: Not so much an honor to actually do it.

      • Sam: (to Laura) You have a lot of problems, don't you? I can see it in your eyes: Sybil, Squeaky Fromme.

      • (on the phone)
        Ben: This morning, after I ate breakfast, I made an oath to myself after you left, that I would not eat any more cereal.
        Dr. Katz: Good for you, that's great! I'm proud of you.
        Ben: (with mouth full of food) I'm giving it up. I mean, I'm 25 years old, I can't sit here for the rest of my life in a house that's poorly decorated, and eat cereal.
        Dr. Katz: What are you eating there ... it sounds delicious.
        Ben: Cereal.
        Dr. Katz: What about your oath?
        Ben: Well [beep] the oath, who cares?

      • Dr. Katz: You know, some times, when a boy says he wants a dog, what he really wants is a hug ... or a dog.

      • (uncomfortable with the baby bird Laura is keeping)
        Dr. Katz: Aren't you afraid ...
        Laura: Afraid what?
        Dr. Katz: I don't know, it's wild, it's a bird.
        Laura: What's it gonna do?
        Dr. Katz: That's the part that scares me; we don't know this.
        Laura: Dr. Katz, I could crush it between my thumb and my forefinger.
        Dr. Katz: Okay, but just ... I don't wanna look.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Sam: "You have a lot of problems, don't you? I can see it in your eyes: Sybil, Squeaky Fromme."
        When insulting Laura, Sam likens her to Sybil and Squeaky Fromme. Sybil was an individual who supposedly had multiple personalities and was the subject of a novel and a movie. Squeaky Fromme was a follower of Charles Manson who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.
