  • Quotes

    • Howard: (as the "Fear of Flying" group is getting on the elevator after their session) You know, it's funny how everybody's afraid to go up in an airplane, but nobody's afraid to get in an elevator, which is held up by one, thin little cable. (the whole group leaves the elevator and runs for the stairs)

    • Bob: Remember when I asked you where you wanted to go on our honeymoon-Hawaii, Acapulco-did flying have anything to do with the fact that you chose Gary, Indiana?

    • Bob: Emily, what happened to all the bourbon?
      Emily: Oh, I put it in the chicken.
      Bob: Would you like a glass of chicken, Howard?

    • Bob: When you love somebody, it's all right to tell them they're being stupid.
