    • QUOTES (7)

      • Narrator: (Opening Narration) In Last week's episode of Soap, Jessica convinced herself that Chester's infidelity and all the bad things that had befallen the Tates and the Campbells are the result of a curse. But even though they're cursed, she's still not to thrilled with Chester. The Godfather came looking for Danny, but Danny was dressed up as a Rabbi, and instead of getting killed, Danny got a contribution. Burt, who came away from Doctor Medlow thinking he could, couldn't, because Mary, upset over the day's events, wouldn't. Dennis told Jodie there was no need for a sex change operation, because he's decided to marry a girl. On hearing the news, Jodie swallowed the contents of the pill cart for the entire west wing of University Hospital. Confused? you wont be after this week's episode of Soap.

      • Narrator: (Closing Narration) Now that Burt can, will he and Mary ever find the time? Will Corrine really kill Peter if she catches him fooling around? Will Peter continue to fool around? Will Corrine catch him? Now that Danny has been both an Arab and a Jew, will he declare war on himself? Will Jessica really walk out on Chester? Or will she call a cab? These questions and many others will be answered on next week's episode of Soap.

      • Chester: You had an affair? You mean you slept with another man?
        Jessica: Well I mean Chester, that's usually what an affair is.

      • Barney: I don't know. I don't know what the world is coming to anymore. When a gay man who was thinking of becoming a woman then decides on suicide turns out to be the most normal member of the family.

      • Jodie: I've also decided not to have the sex change operation.
        Bob: Wonderful. You lose a daughter. You gain a suicidal sissy.

      • Barney: (talking about Jodie) He's gonna be fine. Really.
        Burt: Fine, fine. How fine can he be? He came here a guy who wanted to be a girl and decided he'd rather be a corpse.

      • Bob: (to Jodie, after his suicide attempt) Well, if at first you don't succeed . . .
