Episode Quotes
Sally: Why do you keep on shaving?
Peter: Why does any man shave? To keep his face feeling clean.
Sally: It's a waste of time when it doesn't show.

Sally: Why don't you use a man?
Peter: Well, that would be taking too much of a risk. Besides, I can't imagine getting any volunteers.
Sally: I'd volunteer. I'd love to be invisible.
Peter: Not if I know it. One freak in the family is enough.

Constantine: All my life I've lived for beauty. Surrounded myself with lovely things. I've hated ugliness, tried to lock it out. But now I'm engulfed in an abyssal obscenity of ugliness from which I cannot day or night for one moment escape.
