Do you think the house is going to miss us?
Sure, it'll miss us. The minute we get out of sight, it's going to break right down and start to cry out of all the faucets. The neighbors will sell tickets to see the crying house.
I'd like to think the house is going to miss us, Charley.
Look, are we going to California, or are we going to stand here waving bye-bye to a pile of lumber?
Charley's right, fellas. Let's all...let's all pile in.
Come on, let's go. Come on, move.

My Three Sons started out as a nice, enjoyable show, but ran way too long. It should have ended while it was still ahead. The beginning of the end came when the family moved from Bryant (or was it Briant) Park and went to California. It might have been all right if the family number had stayed at five. But then all these characters kept being added. Rob got married, and then had triplets. (Come on. Did Rob really need three kids? Wouldn't one have done just as nicely?) Then Chip got married. (If the show had lasted any longer, I'm sure Ernie would have gotten married, too.) I finally stopped watching the show when Steve got married to a woman with a daughter. All these characters for a half-hour sitcom? I was getting dizzy! Tim Considine had the right idea when he left when he did. But that's another thing that made me mad. His character was never mentioned again, like he never existed. They could have at least had an occasional letter from him, like Adam in Bonanza. A show that started off good was beaten into the ground. How very sad!
