Episode Summary

EDIT
The Author
AIRED:
Ray's dreams of authoring a sports book get squashed when the publishing company takes a pass on it, just as Robert receives the good news that he is being promoted to lieutenant. The Barone family doesn't quite know how to react to this most bizarre of situations in which Ray has failed at something while Robert has succeeded. But worst of all, Ray doesn't know how (or if) he's ever going to get past this.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Nitpick: When Robert was having a box of Bugles, he didn't touch it to his chin. After offering Raymond a Bugle, he touched another one to his chin.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Ray: (about needing time alone to write his book) I'm sacrificing the most precious time of all—time with my children. You don't see two cats and a cradle playing up here?
      Debra: I see two monkeys and a yo-yo playing up there.

    • Ray: You just don't want me to write a book, because then comes the tours, and the groupies.
      Debra: (laughs) Oh, now there's a sorry bunch of women.

    • Debra: I want you to go apologize to Robert so when you look at yourself, you see a man.
      Ray: At least I don't see what Robert sees. A big oaf who has a sweater that looks like yarn vomit. (Pause) I can't even write my own talk.

    • Robert: You ripped my sweater.
      Ray: Good. By the way, the itchy part is from me.

    • Frank: What did you use for toilet paper?
      Debra: Toilet paper.
      Frank: Then it wasn't really camping. You know, I could tell you a story—
      Debra: Okay, that's all right, Frank!

    • Marie: This is why we can't have nice things!

    • Ray: (about Robert) And then you go showering him with fancy gifts!
      Debra: It was a sweater, and it's from both of us.
      Ray: Yeah? Well, I hope it's itchy because that's the part from me.

    • Ray: You just don't understand.
      Debra: No, I understand. You want to write a book, and you will. You can dedicate it to your ex-wife who couldn't take your crap any longer.

    • Debra: Okay, look honey, I know you're disappointed about your book not coming out, but you have a great job and a family who loves you.
      Ray: That's what you always say.

    • Debra: You're going straight to bed? You're not gonna read or watch TV or anything?
      Ray: I can't write, so why should I read? I mean, what is the point, really? What is the point?
      Debra: Are you finished?
      Ray: If you're referring to my writing career!

    • Robert: You know, Raymond, the way I see it is that a lot of books get published that suck. So for your book not to get published... it must have been off-the-charts suck!

    • Ray: How am I supposed to focus when the house is crawling with doody heads? (talking about the kids)
      Debra: (sarcastically) Oh, were they noisy? Gosh, when I'm alone with them, they just sit in the corner and read The Bible!

    • Ray: I need help. I'm under the gun to finish up this book. So I was just wondering if maybe you could, ah, pick up the slack here for the next couple of days.
      Debra: My whole LIFE is picking up the slack!

    • Raymond: That was my publisher. They, uh, read the first two chapters of my book. They didn't want me to write any more.
      Debra: Oh, my God, Ray.
      Marie: But why? Were there spelling errors?
