Mr. Mollett:
Say, uh, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?



Homer Parrish:
I know what it is. How did I get these hooks and how do they work? That's what everybody says when they start off, "Do you mind if I ask you a personal question?" Well, I'll tell ya. I got sick and tired of that old pair of hands I had. You know, an awful lot of trouble washing them and manicuring my nails. So I traded them in for a pair of these latest models. They work by radar. Look.

Wilma Cameron:
Tell me the truth, Homer. Do you want me to forget about you?



Homer Parrish:
I want you to be free, Wilma, to live your own life. I don't want you tied down forever just because you've got a kind heart.



Wilma Cameron:
Oh, Homer! Why can't you ever understand the way things really are, the way I really feel? I keep trying to tell you.



Homer Parrish:
But, but you don't know, Wilma. You don't know what it'd be like to have to live with me. To have to face this


[his hooks]



Homer Parrish:
every day, every night.



Wilma Cameron:
But I can only find out by trying. And if it turns out I haven't courage enough, we'll soon know it.

[after Peggy tells her parents that they never had any trouble in their relationship]



Milly Stephenson:
"We never had any trouble." How many times have I told you I hated you and believed it in my heart? How many times have you said you were sick and tired of me; that we were all washed up? How many times have we had to fall in love all over again?
