QUOTES FROM Martin Gabel CHARACTERS

Barbara Harmon says: 17 years since I dated - but believe me nothings changed, Doctor. After 10,000 packs of cigarettes men just breathe heavier, that's all. They still don't know which things hook and which things snap, thank heavens.

Dr. Zenwinn says: I'm not sure I understand about the "thank heavens". We expect men to be uh, stimulated by the women they take out. Don't we?

Dr. Zenwinn says: Why are you here, Mr. Harmon?

Richard Harmon says: I uh, I'm here to listen. Two years now she's been telling me to come to see you to, uh you know, SAVE OUR MARRIAGE. So here I am; save it.

Richard Harmon says: I uh, I'm here to listen. Two years now she's been telling me to come to see you to, uh you know, save our marriage. So here I am; save it.

Dr. Zenwinn says: Well that's a mighty tall order now Mr. Harmon, wouldn't you say?
