  • Quotes

    • Jerry: You ought to raise your rates every once in a while. Otherwise your patients won't think you're doing any good.
      Bob: Jerry, I just…I feel guilty about it.
      Jerry: Oh, you shouldn't feel guilty, Bob. You think your patients feel guilty about not paying their bill on time?
      Bob: My patients feel guilty about everything.

    • Mrs. Bakerman: Dr. Hartley, this is my gift. I didn't get a chance to wrap it because I only just finished knitting it this second.
      Bob: Oh, a…a wallet. How unusual. And practical. And yellow.
      Mrs. Bakerman: Yes, isn't it cheery? And there's a place for your credit cards, and a place for your change. I didn't have time to knit you a secret compartment, but I did put in a picture of Jane Wyman.

    • Mr. Carlin: All I can say is, I never thought I'd see the day.
      Bob: What…what do you mean by that, Mr. Carlin?
      Mr. Carlin: I remember the lean years, Dr. Hartley, just the two of us. I was your first patient. You didn't have a couch to lie on. We used to sit together in the same overstuffed chair.
