  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jason: Carol, what did you do for your third-grade science project?
      Carol: Well, I constructed a compound of monodichlorides and polydichlorides that were capable of withstanding excessive heat and mechanical stress.
      Jason: Mike?
      Mike: I, uh, ran tests to see how high a Super Ball would bounce.

    • Maggie: (on phone) No, no, Mrs. Curwick, you see, we suspect that Easttown is giving you and your neighbors a lot of false information about what's been dumped in that reservoir. Right. Uh huh. Uh huh. See, that's just what I mean. You see, there's no such thing as "chunky style" water.

    • Jason: I thought I heard a car door slam.
      Mike: No, you know, Dad, no matter how many times I ask the neighbors to please climb out through their windows, they insist on using those doors.

    • Ben: Dad, did they have science projects when you were in third grade?
      Mike: Ben, when Dad was in the third grade, they didn't have science. In fact, when Dad was in the third grade, they didn't have the third grade.

    • Jason: Ah, Mike, they say the sense of humor is the final stage of child development. You ought to feel it coming on any time now.

    • Maggie: It's only 15 minutes.
      Jason: "It's only 15 minutes." Maggie, a lot can happen in 15 minutes. The Titanic sunk in 15 minutes. Charlton Heston picked up ten commandments in 15 minutes. Our first child was conceived in 15 minutes—tops.

    • Maggie: You actually thought there was something going on between me and Fred?
      Jason: I can't even dignify that with a response. You like him better than me, don't ya?
