    • QUOTES (6)

      • Marcy: This is a disgrace. Don't you understand, you are robbing your children of one of life's great experiences. I love to go to the dentist. A man in white hovering over me while I'm trapped helpless in a chair. He cleans me, he flosses me, his instruments alive in my mouth. And just when I think I can't take anymore he says 'Good girl Marcy. You can spit now'.
        Peggy: Al, I want to go to the dentist.
        Marcy: You should! Everyone should see their dentist at least twice a month (Steve looks at her) I mean year.

      • Dr. Plierson: Women. They're the lowest forms of life. You married, Bundy?
        Al: Look in these eyes.

      • Kelly: Hi Mom, hi dad.
        Al: Kids, I'm glad you're home because I'm taking a poll.
        Kelly: Where're we gonna put a pole?
        Bud: Well, we can put it in your head so we have a place to hang the sign that says 'Duh'.
        Kelly: Oh thanks. You wouldn't let me get a nose-earring but you put a pole in my head?
        Al: (to Peggy) Peg, are you sure you didn't have a one night stand with Abbot and Costello?

      • Al: Ah, home sweet hell.

      • Neighbor: (off-screen) Hey, Bundy! I'm having steak tonight. What are you having? Ha, ha, ha!
        Al: If I was the mailman, I'd be having your wife!

      • Bud: Dad, dad, I had a girl here last night.
        Al: Bud, I got no time for your jokes now, my teeth are killing me.
