    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Pete: I hardly knew your mother, Ed. I wish I could tell you where she is.

      • (explaining her "curse" to Mike)
        Maggie: I'm a scientific phenomenon!

      • Joel: (still not believing One-Who-Waits exists) If your friend tells you to climb up on the roof and take a leap, I hope you will discuss it with me first.

      • Shelly: Ed, who are you talking to?
        Ed: One-Who-Waits, my invisible friend.
        Shelly: Oh. Well where is he, about here? (points to the air)
        Ed: No, he's more like (moves her hand) here.
        Shelly: Ok. (to the air) What would you like?

      • Piano tuner: (After hearing Shelly talk) That's how I like 'em: blond and stacked.

      • Ed: Why would someone wrap up their baby in a coat, put him in a basket, and stick him in the reeds by the river?
        Ruth-Anne: There was a very good reason for that, Ed. Pharaoh's soldiers would have killed that little baby Moses.
        Ed: I wasn't talking about Charlton Heston, Ruth-Anne, I was talking more like in real life.

      • Ruth-Anne: (talking about a couple that got pregnant after winning a dance contest) They would have been better off celebrating with a couple of chocolate fudge sundaes at Carvel's.

      • Ed: Pete…I think you should know that I'm…I'm…I'm…I'm…I'm…
        Pete: You're what, Ed?
        Ed: Uh, kind of thirsty.
