    • QUOTES (9)

      • Dr. Katz: (about accepting Ben's dinner invitation) I have to tell you Laura, this would be, this would really pick up Ben's spirits, they've been really down, the past eight ... 12 years.

        'Yeah, I wanna say something to the sea pig. ... What you gotta do is get yourself an education and a job.'
        'I live in the ocean.'
        'You live in the ocean 'cause you aint got no job.'

        'You're fat, you gotta get Weight Watchers.'

      • (Dr. Katz's therapy notes as dictated)
        "Dreyfus session 418: Julia thought I was making a joke at her expense and, uh, I thought I was trying to let her off the hook. Uh, she was right."
        "Dreyfus session 418: Things aren't going well. Ten minutes in the bathroom to one minute on the phone. 10 to 1 ratio, not good."
        "Note to myself: I gotta redecorate this office... put a live fish in the fishbowl."
        "Note to myself: Appreciate the little things in life; take the time to smell the flowers... and get some flowers. I'm a very lonely man."
        "Note to myself: How are you? Who's your favorite professional therapist? You are, you bad, bad Dr. Katz."

      • Dr. Katz: Just remind me, you have an older sister ...
        Julia: And an older brother.
        Dr. Katz: And an older brother. So you are in fact the middle child.
        Julia: No, I'm the youngest.
        Dr. Katz: The youngest of three.
        Julia: See, I don't even think you're listening to you.

      • Dr. Katz: (during phone therapy session) You wanna tell me why you left your last therapist?
        Julia: Well, I had two therapists and you know, they were both nice guys, I guess, but I had this experience where each one of them fell asleep during a therapy session with me. So I find the idea of therapy a little bit humiliating.
        Dr. Katz: Well were you going on and on about something?

      • Dr. Katz: Ben, are you spending your bar mitzvah money on scratch tickets?
        Ben: Well, you gotta do something with those Israeli bonds.
        Dr. Katz: You know the bonds, unlike yourself, matured 10 years ago.
