Charles in Charge (1984–1990)
Charles: [Charles finds Douglas at work with a skateboard] ... Doug, do you need help tightening those wheels?
Douglas Pembroke: I'm not tightening them; I'm loosening them.
Charles: That's very dangerous!
Douglas Pembroke: I hope so; this is Jason's skateboard. He used my baseball glove to clean his fish tank! He's gotta be taught a lesson.
Charles: [confiscating the skateboard] That's not a crime punishable by death.
Douglas Pembroke: ...Jason's gone too far this time. He just took a shower and used my lucky towel.
Charles: What's lucky about it?
Douglas Pembroke: It always gets me dry!
Stan Pembroke: [to Lila, who - against his orders - went out on a date with a boy he detested] ... You're grounded for three months. No TV, no stereo, no allowance, no phone. Your life is school, homework, eating, sleeping, and chores - *lots* of chores. And if you have any free time, I suggest you spend it dwelling on why you were grounded.
Stan Pembroke: ...And *don't* bake her any cookies!
