    • QUOTES (4)

      • (The doorbell rings, Avery starts crying)
        Murphy: Oh no, no no no, it's okay. That-that wasn't the doorbell, that was just an angel, singing a little ding-dong song. (The doorbell rings again and Murphy looks angrily towards the door) And now, mommy is going to kill that angel!

      • Frank: Where's the baby?
        Corky: Oh, my god, Murphy, you didn't leave him on the hood of your car as you always do with your coffee mug, did you?

      • Murphy: I had to hire a lactating nurse to show me how to breastfeed. Can you believe it? I finally have a chest and the only man in my life doesn't know what to do with it.

      • On the season 1 DVD retrospective, Joe Regalbuto mentions the controversy.

        Joe: We were put in a situation that was a political situation and all we were was a comedy show, that dealt with the issues that people in our arena would deal with.
