    • (Geoffrey enters the kitchen wearing a new uniform)

      (Will hangs up the phone)
      Will: Uncle Phil, that was for you. They said you left your wallet at the donut depot.

    • Carlton: The silverware wasn't in the basement. But I found Geoffrey's new uniform crammed behind the hot water heater.
      Geoffrey (sounding annoyed): The scoundrels must have ditched it in their haste to escape.

    • Geoffrey: Madam, I have some distressing news. Your heirloom silverware is missing and someone's stolen my new uniform.
      Vivian: What?
      Philip: It's probably just misplaced. Let's split up and search for it.
      Geoffrey: Don't trouble yourselves. I'll just go back to wearing my old uniform.

    • Philip (walks in after exercising): That diet and exercise regiment your mother put me on has really changed my life. Its nice having her home more. She wakes up cheerful every morning, leaves little love notes in my briefcase, calls me up at work just to chat...That women must be stopped.

    • Will (about Vivian being home all the time): Having her home all the time is great. She picks our clothes out for us, makes our lunches, cuts the crust off the ends of our bread...That women must be stopped!
