Ralph: I really dig intellectual girls, especially that one. I love the way her mind fills her sweater.
Marion: No one on my side of the family ever went to a psychiatrist.
Howard: Well, my side of the family is perfectly normal, Marion. I mean, they don't even have to read Dear Abby.
Marion: What about your Aunt Louise who lives in a bomb shelter?
Howard: When the big one drops, who'll be crazy then?
Ralph: What are you doing in the closet?
Richie: Reading a book.
Ralph: In the closet? Must be Kiss Me Deadly.
Kiss Me Deadly was the sixth novel by Mickey Spillane, published in 1952. Spillane's violent mystery stories were deemed rather scandalous in the conservative 1950s.
