Mickey: Last year, 9 million dollars were spent on pornography. I figure, women spent about 36 bucks of that. Now, that's a big divide between men and women.
Psychiatrist: You're saying that justifies you cheating on your wife?
Mickey: No. I'm a card-carrying pervert. But, of that 9 million, I only pitched in a hundred bucks or so. What I'm saying is, that monogamy is unnatural. It's a circus act. You see that monkey, in the circus, riding a unicycle and you know it's not natural. He had to be taught to get that way. He ...

Characters not believable?
14 November 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I simply cannot understand some of the criticisms of this show, specifically that the characters are unrealistic. I see these character types all the time, from the cheating alpha male (Jake) to the loyal but whipped Doug. Binder's own character is stuck in the middle like most of us, he wants to please his wife without defering to her on every issue. The constant struggles between love and boredom, power and submission, and monogomy and straying is played out in depth every week. The writing is witty, intelligent and focused, it often takes the unexpected turn. Hopefully it can maintain its quality.
