Frank Beardsley: You're not being ridiculous.
Colleen North: Well, do all the other girls, like Larry says? And am I just being old-fashioned?

Helen North: Not now!
Frank Beardsley: Yes, now.
[to Colleen]
Frank Beardsley: It's giving life that counts. Until you're ready for it, all the rest is just a big fraud. All the crazy haircuts in the world won't keep it turning. Life isn't a love in, it's the dishes and the orthodontist and the shoe repairman and... ground round instead of roast beef. And I'll tell you something else: it isn't going to a bed with a man that proves you're in love with him; it's getting up in the morning and facing the drab, miserable, wonderful everyday world with him that counts.

Helen North: Because you would have said, "Is that all?".

Frank Beardsley: I don't quite understand. Am I being stupid?
Helen North: No, you're being a man. Which is sometimes the same thing.

Frank Beardsley: [narrating why his ten kids resent him] Truthfully, I think they blamed me for neglecting their mother all those years. But there seemed to me that there was enough physical evidence I hadn't neglected her completely!

Helen North: That was a wonderful dinner, I enjoyed all *eight* courses.
Frank Beardsley: So did I.
Helen North: And speaking of children...
Frank Beardsley: We weren't speaking of children.
Helen North: We weren't? Oh thank goodness.

Frank Beardsley: This is the last time I'm going to bring it up but... you do like children, don't you?
Helen North: Yeah, within reason.
Frank Beardsley: In that case, the hell with it.
