  • Quotes

    • Hank: It seems a shame Eb and Darlene can't get married just because Mr. Wheeler can't stand Eb. Of course, my parents had the same problem. Yeah, my mother's father couldn't stand my father. No, it was my mother who couldn't stand my father. No. It was my father who couldn't stand. My mother always had to hold him up.

    • Hank: (remembering why he dropped by) Oh, I just came over to see the eight dollar engagement ring.

    • Eb: Did you get a ring when you got engaged?
      Lisa: Every time!
