      • Corinne: (after catching Jessica in Peter's apartment)
        This is really the limit, Mother. When I was eight, you took away my cap pistol. And when I was thirteen, you took away my eye shadow. But this!
        Peter: (chases after Corinne)
        Corinne, wait!
        Jessica: Oh, my God! Oh, God, now how could this happen? I always tried to be good. I mean, I took care of my family, served on committees, I read to the blind. And now? Now, I've had an affair with my step-nephew. Or is he my nephew by marriage? Now wait, let's see, he's my sister's second husband's son so that makes him my step-nephew by... by marriage... is that right? What does it matter, whoever he is, he's in love with my daughter and I mean, she really isn't my daughter, she's the illegitimate daughter of... Oh, my God!

      • Mrs. Fine: Now, let me see if I understood this. You said we can't see each other, right?
        Peter: Uh, that's right.
        Mrs. Fine: And we can't see each other anymore because someone is moving with you?
        Peter: That's right.
        Mrs. Fine: Someone is moving in, I love it. A man who has his mattress replaced every ten days is making a commitment.

      • Burt: Look at this place. Look at it. It's for lunatics.
        Mary: What are you talking, Burt? It's a perfectly nice, normal office.
        Burt: Perfectly normal? Look at this.
        (picks up book)
        "Sexual Perversion: Fact of Fiction?"
        (points to another book)
        "Sexuality in Infancy"
        Oh, oh. That's nice. I like that a lot.
        "The Frigid Woman"
        "The Impotent Male"
        That's it! I'm leaving.
        Mary: Come on, Burt. Dr. Medlow has a wonderful reputation. He's an M.D., for God's sake.
        Burt: M.D.?! In his case it means Mentally Deranged. Mary, look at this place. The man is sick.

      • Jodie: That was Congressman McCallum, wasn't it, huh?
        Eunice: Well, I'm covering his campaign and I was interviewing him.
        Jodie: You're going to tell me he holds hands with Woodward and Bernstein, too.

      • Mary: Burt, Dr. Medlow is a very busy man. This is the only appointment he could give us and we can't cancel.
        Burt: All right, all right, all right.
        Jodie: The Dr. Medlow?
        Burt: Knock it off. You don't know him.
        Jodie: Oh, not personally. I've never had the need to consult a sex psychiatrist.
        Burt: He happens to be a dermatologist.
        Jodie: Come on, Burt. I know what Dr. Medlow does.
        (talks in deep voice)
        And what you don't.

      • Jodie: Cooking breakfast, Burt?
        Burt: Yup.
        Jodie: Hmm. Well, I hope your cooking here is more successful than it is upstairs.
        Burt: What are you talking about?
        Jodie: Just a little something I found in your bathroom this morning. "The Cookbook of Sex."
        (Jodie and Danny start laughing)
        For second there, Burt, I thought that The Happy Hooker and The Galloping Gourmet had decided to collaborate.
        Burt: Give me the book!
        Jodie: I couldn't help but browse. You know how I love to cook. I figured I could find all sorts of wonderful things I could do with a duck. Quack. Quack.

      • Jessica: (Corrine walks in on her with Peter) Corinne, this is not what you think it is. What do you think it is?

      • Eunice: It's incredible we have something in common.
        Jodie: Yeah, we both date guys.

      • Eunice: You used to steal my clothes.
        Jodie: You had such nice things.
