Quotes

Tommy Solomon: [having a bad day as an adolescent] As the oldest member of this crew, I feel it's my duty to inform you all that this planet both wipes and sucks... in that order.
Dr. Dick Solomon: What is your problem?
Tommy Solomon: Something's wrong. My transfer's not holding. I'm growin' hair, and my armpits smell, and there's a constant circus in my pants.

According to this, you're a 300-pound, 75-year-old, Asian woman.

At last, Dick learns the subtle nuances of truth and lies.

Unfortunately, not before Mary flatters him into subbing for her at a meeting of the Rules Committee. Of course, she's filled Dick's mind with her all-too-honest opinions of the Committee, so is this really just ringing Dick's dinner bell? Watch and see!

(In the episode's B plot line, Harry and Sally go to the DMV to get driver's licenses.)

More great humor, more great character development, and the committee scene is absolutely wondrous.

"Oh, you have a mole! A big, ugly mole!"
