    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jerry: You know, Carol, someday you're going to be sorry for the way you've been treating me, a respected member of the dental profession and all. Someday you're going to come crawling to me on your hands and your knees with a big cavity. And I'm just going to squirt cold air on it.

      • Howard: (on his ex-wife) Oh, she's still mad at me. She thinks the marriage didn't work out because of my flying all the time. How can it be my fault? I was never home.

      • Howard: (looking at a newspaper) Bob, do you think the circus is too violent for an 8-year-old?
        Bob: I don't think it matters, Howard. That's Sunday's paper. The circus closes today.
        Howard: Swell. What am I going to do with him, anyway?
        Bob: You and your son could watch them tear it down.
        Howard: Dismantling? That sounds constructive!

      • Bob: (on Lois and Howard's failed marriage) It must be rough being married to someone who's somewhere else.
        Lois: Well, it's not the ideal marriage when the wife is sleeping in Chicago and the husband is sleeping in Guam. Actually, we probably wouldn't have had Howie if not for the "great airline strike of 1963."

      • Bob: Emily, you deal with kids a lot. I mean, you get along with them, right?
        Emily: Well, I didn't do so well today. I gave a kid a D on his spelling test, and after school he wrote an obscene word in the dust on my car.
        Bob: How do you know it was the same kid?
        Emily: Because he misspelled it.
