Quotes from Robert Guillaume's Characters

    1. Dr. Bennett (Senior): Not very excitin', is it? And I suppose if I had to choose between the true version and an elaborate one involvin' a fish and a wedding ring, I might choose the fancy version. But that's just me.
    2. William Bloom: I kinda like your version.

    1. Dr. Bennett (Senior): Did your father ever tell you about the day you were born?
    2. William Bloom: A thousand times. He caught an uncatchable fish.
    3. Dr. Bennett (Senior): Not that one. The real story. Did he ever tell you that.
    4. William Bloom: No.
    5. Dr. Bennett (Senior): Your mother came in about three in the afternoon. Her neighbor drove her, on account of your father was on business in Wichita. You were born a week early, but there were no complication. It was a perfect delivery. Now, your father was sorry to miss it, but it wasn't the custom for the men to be in the room for deliveries then, so I can't see as it would have been much different had he been there. And that's the real story of how you were born.
