Kitty Forman: Sure you do, Honey. You're number 1 with me!

Donna Pinciotti: [amused] Eric, it's not a date!
Eric Forman: It's not. I know. I know it's not a date. It's not a date. It's a... shrimp fest. It's a festival of shrimp, if you will.

Donna Pinciotti: [still amused] I'll see you tomorrow night.

Kitty Forman: How about when you joined the service? Another man issued your boots.
Reginald "Red" Forman: So he gave me a gun so I let it go.
Kitty Forman: Why can't you just accept the gift because Bob is your friend?
Reginald "Red" Forman: Kitty you don't understand how men work out. We dont give each other presents. We just basiclly ignore each other until we score a touchdown.
