Jack Butler: Honey if you call and I'm not home I'll be at the gym or the gun club.

Jack Butler: [Enters scene revving chainsaw] How ya doin'. You must be Ron Richardson. I'm Jack Butler, nice to meetcha.

Ron Richardson: Pleased to meet you.

Jack Butler: Huh?

Ron Richardson: I say I'm pleased...

[Jack Turns chainsaw off]

Ron Richardson: ...to meet you. I'm just waiting for Caroline.

Jack Butler: Well, uh, you know women.

Ron Richardson: Yeah, I'd like to think I do.

Jack Butler: Wanna beer?

Ron Richardson: It's 7 o'clock in the morning.

Jack Butler: Scotch?

Ron Richardson: Not during working hours. Ooooh, sorry pal.

Jack Butler: No problem. Come on over here Ron. Let me show you what I'm doing, taking advantage of some of the time off. To, uh, add a whole new wing on here. Gonna rip these walls out and, uh, of course re-wire it.

Ron Richardson: Yeah, you gonna make it all 220?

Jack Butler: Yeah, 220, 221. Whatever it takes.

[Trying to get Kenny to give up his security blanket]

Jack Butler: I understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great... and they are, they are terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt. And the next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads Ken. That's serious.

Jack Butler: My brain is like oatmeal. I yelled at Kenny today for coloring outside the lines! Megan and I are starting to watch the same TV shows, and I'm liking them! I'm losing it.

Caroline: Honey, I know what you're talking about. I've been there myself, alright?

Jack Butler: Well, if you're so unhappy, why don't you say something about it?

Caroline: Because I wasn't unhappy! Look, maybe I was a little confused, maybe I was a little frustrated, but I knew what I was doing was important, because it means something to raise human beings. What saw me through was pride.

[Jack takes the bedspread, pillow and a pizza slice before heading out]

Caroline: I've pride in this house, I've pride with my kids, and I've pride being Mrs. Jack Butler! Where are you going?

Jack Butler: [Eating pizza before going] I'm goin' downstairs to sleep on the fat couch if I can get through the door.

[Jack leaves the room]

Caroline: Well, you should take pride with some of that FAT, Porky!

[Caroline slams the door]

Jack Butler: My wife and I went to the movies the other day, we saw Rocky. While I'm watching it, I'm thinking 'This guy has taken some falls' you know.

Auto Worker 1: Which Rocky was it? 1 or 2, or 3?

Jack Butler: I don't know. Three I guess. But...

Auto Worker 2: Hey, did the guy have a mo-hawk like Mr. T?

Jack Butler: OK forget Rocky. The point is... when you're down, not not exactly out... I mean, I mean you gotta hang tough... I don't know.

Auto Worker 1: Well Hang tough baby! Do what Rocky would do!

[walks out]

Auto Worker 1: He didn't see Rocky
