  • Quotes

    • Dan: (sitting with baby Andy on the couch) Are you doing what I think you're doing? (wrinkles up his nose and inhales) Oh yes, you ARE!...Here. Here's a little something to read (hands him a magazine).

    • Dan: Aw, Fred, look, a couple's spending time apart is critical for marriage. If Roseanne didn't go on these periodic trips (pauses) I'd only have death to look forward to.

    • Jackie: (about Fred who's just sulked out to the car) He hates it when we fight before dinner.
      Dan: Around here, we call that grace.

    • David: (leaving Mark and following Dan into the kitchen) Mr. Conner, do you still want to talk anymore about your friend's problem?
      Dan: No, thanks.
      David: It's okay, Mark won't come in-- he just heard a firetruck.

    • Dan: Marriage is not a game, Fred. A game is something that's fun and you can win. Marriage is a blood sport.

    • Mark: (watching TV) Ya know, I don't get why the weather man puts up a sun with a big smiley face on it... I mean, just because it's sunny doesn't mean you're going to be happy.

    • Dan: (finding out that Jackie is with a man other than Fred) You gotta tell Fred about this or he'll pick it up on the streets.
      Jackie: How's that going to happen?
      Dan: I will stand in the street and yell it at your house.

    • Dan: I'm always complementing that Fred at work, but does he ever give me a hug? N-O.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Jackie: (When Stacy wants her to go to a night club with her) Did Lee Iacocca go gallivanting around with his mechanics? I DON'T THINK SO!!!

      Jackie is making an allusion to American industrialist and former chairman of Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca.

    • Dan: (after seeing Jackie being friendly with another guy at the Lobo) You swear to me that there's nothing going on between you and this guy?
      Jackie: Cross my legs and hope to die!

      Jackie is making an allusion to the old, childhood adage, "Cross my heart and hope to die".
