Quotes

Eddie Phillips: I was married to Tildy for 45 years, and the woman drove me absolutely crazy. She had these ugly little porcelain cats that she loved to line up on a windowsill. Every day for 45 years, I used to take those cats off the windowsill and put them in a cupboard. And every day for 45 years, she'd take the cats out of the cupboard and put them back on the windowsill.

"You don't have to understand a woman. All you have to do, is love her."
3 August 2010 | by keitharanSee all my reviews

"You don't have to understand a woman. All you have to do, is love her." - Eddie Phillips as played by Ernest Borgnine - actual dialog from script is below

That's the memorable quote from this episode "Birds of a Feather Flock to Taylor," #1.20. You might find it on the web as attributed to the Wilson character who's renown for his quotes, but this one is attributable to the Eddie Phillips character played by Ernest Borgnine - who to date - 8/3/10- is 93 years old and still active with 4 projects currently under production.

The other guest star on this episode is the great Jack Elam as Hick Peterson. One of the greatest character actors in American history, Elam passed away in 2003.

Jack Elam and Ernest Borgnine, that alone is worth a vote of 10.

From the show:

Eddie: -- after his wife died]-- I was married to Tildy for 45 years, and the woman drove me absolutely crazy. She had these ugly little porcelain cats that she loved to line up on a window sill. Every day for 45 years, I used to take those cats off the window sill and put them in a cupboard. And every day for 45 years, she'd take the cats out of the cupboard and put them back on the window sill.

Tim: Where are they now?

Eddie: On a window sill.

Tim: You didn't throw them out?

Eddie: What for? ...pause... You don't have to understand a woman. All you have to do, is love her.
