Grace Sheffield: We're in group therapy.
Fran Fine: Ohhhhhh. Thank God, because, you know, I heard Ken and Barbie are on the skids.
Grace Sheffield: Really?
Fran Fine: I heard it directly from Chatty Cathy. It seems that Ken found out that Barbie had a fling with G.I. Joe right before Desert STorm.
Grace Sheffield: Poor Ken.
Fran Fine: Poor Barbie! One little indiscretion in 30 years, and it cost her the dream house.
Grace Sheffield: Barbie never said a word! She must be in denial.

Lexine: May I help you?
Fran Fine: What's that supposed to mean? I'm okay, you're okay.
[scoffs nervously and looks back to people waiting]
Fran Fine: Are THEY okay?
Lexine: You must be a new patient.
