  • Quotes

    • Ron: Recently I made a chair. When I was finished, I thought it was a good chair. I submitted it to the Indiana Fine Woodworking Association, who felt that it merited consideration for an award... it's been a real whirlwind.

    • Ron: Leslie is a wonderful, loyal friend who is very important in my life, but I would sooner visit *Europe* than have something romantic happen between us. Although, if you'd like to visit Europe, I like you so much I'd be willing to risk it.
      Diane: But not France, right?
      Ron: God, no.

    • Ron: You're pro-government, you never stop talking and you have blonde hair. You're my worst nightmare!
      Leslie: Excuse me, one man's worst nightmare is every other man's total package.
