Episode Quotes
Craig: I Love Lucy and this show are very different of course. One is made on a 1950's budget with cheap sets and old jokes...and a guy with a funny accent...and the other one is I Love Lucy.

Craig: I'm getting involved in thinking about senior citizens. I'm noticing more early bird specials when ever I walk around. I find myself watching reruns of Matlock all the time. I'm strangely attracted to Angela Lansbury.

Craig: Social security is the governments most popular program. A couple of years ago, remember, George Bush wanted to "privatize social security" and put all the money into the stock market. That would have worked out. That would be like letting Michael Vick watch your dog. That doesn't make any sense at all.

Craig: Now legally they're three stages of aging. At 50 you can join the AARP. At 65 you start getting the social security checks and at 75 you are legally allowed to slap the waitress on the ass and call her toots.

Craig: (talking about Bruce Springsteen turning 60) These days he doesn't know if he's dancing in the dark or if he just has cataracts.
