    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Bob has one last chance to tell his mother he loves her before she leaves)
        Emily: Ellenor, we loved having you. Don't you Bob?
        Bob: Yeah, yeah, Mom...love.
        Eleanor: So do I. (walks out the door)
        Bob: I think between the three of us I said it.

      • Bob: Emily, when I was nine years old I had a little dog. He had brown freckles all over his face, and I called him Freckles. And one day I was playing with him in the room, you know, and I looked down at his little face, and impulsively I just said, "I love you." And my mother was walking through the room at that time and she said, "I love you, too, Sonny." I mean, that was the last time I told my mother I loved her, and I was talking to a dog.

      • Jerry: So, the psycologist is having a little problem with his mother, huh?
        Bob: No, not at all. She's a wonderful woman, she means well, and I love her. It's just, uh, well, I've never been able to communicate with her. I mean, conversation in our family was listening to my mother talk. I guess that's why I became a psycologist. I had all those years of listening practice.

      • Eleanor Hartley: Oh, that reminds me. Who do you think I talked to on the phone today? Your Aunt Theresa!
        (Bob nods)
        Eleanor Hartley: Well, aren't you going to ask how she is?
        Bob: How's Aunt Theresa?
        Eleanor Hartley: Just fine.
        Bob: Mom, why did you have me ask how Aunt Theresa is when she's fine?
        Eleanor Hartley: Well, she wasn't fine last week. It's her knees, you know, it's the wind.
        Bob: Yeah, wind, wind will do that to knees.
