    • Helen:: (at the cemetary) I'm Helen Mallory, Charles was my husband. I should apologize for listening to you.
      Carl:: No, that's all right.
      Helen:: Listen, sit a moment. (they sit on a bench) Can I ask you something?
      Carl:: Oh sure.
      Helen:: Do you ever ask yourself, why you had to be the policeman who got there first?
      Carl:: Mrs. Mallory, I ask myself that question a million times a day. But I guess you ask yourself, why your husband had to be the one to be there that night.
      Helen:: No I don't. He was there, because I asked him to go. We were home watching television, and I mentioned that I wanted some ice cream, so Charles said he'd dash to the store. So he got up, cussed the dog for chewing on his hat, and . . . left my life forever. For a long long time, I found it difficult to live with the fact that, if I hadn't asked Charles to go to that store, he would still be with me.
      Carl:: Oh, but Mrs. Mallory, there was no possible way you could've known what would happen. It wasn't your fault.
      Helen:: I know, but it took me a long time to realize that. And now you must realize, that it wasn't your fault either. OK? (Carl nods, and Helen puts flowers on Charles' grave and they hug)

    • Steve: Congratulations, Winslows! …I'm here.

    • Steve: I bought two tickets to a concert that Laura wants to go to and offered to take her as my, get this, date!
      Estelle: Ooh, that's nice!
      Steve: Well, no, it's not nice!
      Estelle: It's not?
      Steve: Well, Laura doesn't want a date with me.
      Estelle: Are you sure?
      Steve: Positive. When I suggested it, her lovely eyes were momentarily clouded with nausea.

    • Carl: Typical. It is always tomorrow with that boy. 'Clean up your room, Edward.' 'Tomorrow, Dad!' 'Take out the trash, Edward.' 'Tomorrow, Dad!' 'Pass the salt, Edward.' 'Tomorrow, Dad!' (goes to the refrigerator) No root beer? When are you going to the store?
      Harriette: Tomorrow, Dear.
