      • Mr. Lepepke: All I'm saying, that if my wife—the woman that I cherish—thinks getting a job is more important than our marriage, let her die.
        Jason: Mr. Lepepke, think for just a moment. Isn't this woman the same person you married ten years ago?
        Mr. Lepepke: No. She's fat.

      • Carol: Ben, my pancakes are cold.
        Ben: So sit on 'em.
        Mike: Ben, what are these little black things in my pancakes?
        Ben: The ones without legs are Raisinets.

      • Jason: You know, everything I need is right here at home. I don't have to commute and I don't have any interruptions.
        Ben: You get to watch Oprah. (Jason glares) Everybody knows, Dad.

      • Jason: So, uh, what's your area of expertise?
        Kevin: Typing, filing, steno.
        Jason: Oh, you treat secretaries?
        Kevin: I am a secretary. In fact, I'm yours.
        Jason: Ah, a male secretary. Heh heh, that's kind of strange... (realizes potential insult) ...gely fascinating.

      • Jason: A male secretary?
        Dr. Ramirez: Come on! Where have you been, Jace?
        Jason: Well, it's just that I've never had a secretary with legs hairier than mine. Once, maybe. But that's another story.

      • Maggie: He has got to be kidding! Thelma, have you seen this assignment sheet?
        Thelma: Nope.
        Maggie: Thelma, you typed it.
        Thelma: Well, yeah, but I didn't read it. That way, I don't get involved.

      • Maggie: I'm supposed to do a feature entitled "Winterizing Your Dog." So rather than writing an insightful, respectable journalistic piece for Esquire magazine, I'll be showing people how to put snow tires on their Shih Tzus!

      • Maggie: Mr. Sidlevitch, I am a darn good reporter and I have worked very hard to show you that! But it's not easy when the biggest story I've done in months is "Gingivitis: Are Your Gums Trying to Tell You Something?"
        Sid: I have failed to make use of your journalistic palette. I accept full responsibility. As of today, I'm out of here.
        Maggie: Oh, uh, wha... I didn't mean you had to quit!
        Sid Sidlevitch: I didn't quit. I'm fired.
        Maggie: You're kidding!
        Sid Sidlevitch: No, I'm fired. If I were kidding, I would not be packing all my worldly possessions into this pathetically small box.

      • Maggie: Oh, what if we're all gone?
        Sid: I don't think you have to worry, Maggie. I said some very nice things about you. Of course, I said some very nice things about me, too, and look what happened.

      • Mike: Mom, you've had a hard day at work, huh? Hey, listen, you know, you should really ease up. I mean, you're getting some major frown lines.
        Maggie: If you value your life, Mike, back off.

      • Dr. Ramirez: Besides, you're the man of the house. I mean, what you say goes, right?
        Jason: Well, that's a very sexist thing to say! Agreeable, but sexist.
