Episode Quotes
Narrator: Over the course of the average lifetime you meet a lot of people. Some of them stick with you through thick and thin. Some weave their way through your life and disappear forever. But once in a while someone comes along who earns a permanent place in your heart. Someone like -say- ...
Miss Hasenfuss: (in the dentist's waiting room) Hi Kevin!
Narrator/Adult: ... Miss Hasenfuss, my dental hygienist..
Kevin: Hi Miss Hasenfuss!
Narrator/Adult: Actually she was more than just my dental hygienist.
Miss Hasenfuss: So, have you been brushing?
Kevin: You bet. Every day.
Miss Hasenfuss: We will take a look.
Narrator/Adult: Our relationship went beyond lower insizers and upper bicuspids and dental floss. She was someone I can really talk to.
Kevin: (she works in his mouth) Urglww..
Miss Hasenfuss: Oh, busy. You? ...Open..
Narrator/Adult: She smelled like ivory soap and herbal shampoo and knew all the right thing to say to make a man feel like .. a man.
Miss Hasenfuss: Spit!
Narrator/Adult: Even though we met only twice a year we had something .. special.
Miss Hasenfuss: Spit!

Kevin: Wayne, you've gone to Doctor Tucker once, didn't you?
Wayne: None of your business.
Kevin: Ooh, what do you do? Well, you know, and .. when he fills a cavity? Does this hurt much?
Wayne: Nah, he gives you Novocaine.
Narrator/Adult: Of course, Novocaine.
Kevin: And that works?
Wayne: Sure, you don't feel a thing. Once you get passed that needle. Ooh.
Kevin: What needle?
Wayne: The big one. The size of a telephone pole. Well, he jams the thing right into your gums. Then all you hear is sounds: Crunch, crack, sssss! Then you will see tooth fragments flying everywhere. And then there is this unbelievable smell. God, be sure that you don't gagger something. But other than that, a piece of cake.
Narrator/Adult: That guy. What a kidder!
