Episode Quotes
Al: I agree. What's wrong with a good, old fashioned one night stand?

Al: Sam, he hit you! That's great! That means he still loves her. Let him hit you again.

Sam: You've lost a son. Don't lose a daughter, too.

Joe: Were you eyeing her at my dinner table? Did it happen in my home?

Sam: For this or for Danny? I mean, that's what this is all about. You know that Irene and I are not having an affair. You've never forgiven Irene for letting Danny go to Europe.

Sam: You should've danced with her.
Joe: Is that advice from my brother or my rabbi? Because I don't need advice from either.

Sam: Oy vey, I'm the rabbi!
