Abner Kravitz: She's strange? You're strange?
Gladys Kravitz: So prove it!

Abner Kravitz: How?
Gladys Kravitz: Go over and ask them!
Abner Kravitz: I will. Tonight I'll go.
Gladys Kravitz: Why do you have to wait until tonight?
Abner Kravitz: Because if I have to look like an idiot, I'd rather do it in the dark!

Gladys Kravitz: [Abner is playing his flute] Shh... They'll hear you?
