      • Robert: C'mon dad, can you help us get mom in her own bed?
        Frank: You know, it might be easier if we just switch houses.
        Marie: Frank... just give me a hand.
        Frank: (sarcastic) Coming sunshine.

      • Marie: Someone left the kids in the middle of the room, and I tripped, and I broke my leg.
        Debra: Oh, my God, Marie. What can we do?
        Frank: Do you have a lawyer?
        Ray: Are suing us, dad?
        Frank: Not you... the insurance company... we'll split it!

      • Debra: I don't think I'm gonna have Lisa babysit anymore.
        Ray: What? No! Listen, I never think of her, ever.

      • Debra: (about Lisa) Isn't she fantastic?
        Ray: She seems great.
        Debra: Oh, my God, I love her, Ray! She used to babysit for the McCormicks down the street, but they put Katie in daycare, so I knew I had to move fast because the Parkers were eyeing her.
        Ray: Screw the Parkers!
        Debra: Yeah, exactly.
        Ray: She's ours!

      • Ally: We want Lisa to stay.
        Debra: Yeah, but I'm gonna make you dinner.
        Ally: We're not hungry!
        Debra: But I'm going to make you fishsticks, and then we're going to take a bath and I'm going to read you a story.
        Ally: We don't want you. We want Lisa!
        Debra: (long pause) I've got cookies!

      • Debra: (as the babysitter is feeding the kids) Michael, are you eating carrots???
        Ally: Not carrots. Power sticks!

      • Ray: Every time I do something manipulative like this you always say 'how could you do that?' But what you really mean is 'how DO you do that?'

      • (about the breadsticks Robert gave her)
        Marie: These seem old.
        Frank: You are what you eat.
        Marie: Robbie, give your father his order of miserable bastard.

    • NOTES (1)

      • David Hunt, who plays Bill Parker in this and other episodes, is the real-life husband of Patricia Heaton. Also, he is British, and he covers his accent with varying degrees of success.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Ray screams Lisa's name in a manner imitative of the "Stelllaaaa!!!!" scene from A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams.
