  • Quotes

    • Dan: You still don't know anything about pills.
      Dick: Well, I may not, but I have a friend who does.
      Dan: Who?
      Dick: Kermit. Why, he takes pep pills to get up in the morning. He takes, uh, tranquilizers to go to sleep at night. Every day of his life it's just pills, pills, pills.
      Dan: Have they helped him?
      Dick: No, he's pregnant.

    • Judy: In my opinion, the Soviet Union is just a Communist front.
