Frank Vecchio: So, what's the story, Richie? Frank Vecchio: So, what's the story Ritchie? Mike Vecchio: Look, get off his back, let him work out his own problems. Bea: You be quiet, we're not talking about marriage. Frank Vecchio: We're talking about divorce. Bea: If we were talking about marriage, you could talk. Frank Vecchio: Marriage is different from divorce. [repeated line] Hal Henderson: No gap! Bea: Frank, you want some veal? Frank Vecchio: No, I don't want no more veal. Bea: The butcher gave you good veal. Frank Vecchio: He's a good butcher. Bea: It's not veiny. Frank Vecchio: I hate veiny veal. Hal Henderson: Weddings aren't planned a few months ahead. Weddings are planned from the time the girl's about six. Richie Vecchio: Don't you understand, Joan and I are just not happy together. Frank Vecchio: You hear that, Beatrice? They're not happy together. Bea: I heard, Frank. Frank Vecchio: So who's happy? Bea: Who's happy? Frank Vecchio: What, do you see me running around dancing in the streets? Bea: Do you see your father running around dancing in the streets? Frank Vecchio: What are you, better than me? You think your mother and I are happy? Richie Vecchio: You mean you and mom aren't happy? Frank Vecchio: [together with Bea] No! Richie Vecchio: Then why did you stay together? Frank Vecchio: [pause] We're content. Bea: We're content. Frank Vecchio: These kids today, all they're looking for is happiness. Bea: Don't look for happiness, Richie. It will only make you miserable. Johnny: Out of all the women in the world, I had to go and marry an equal time orgasm fanatic. Hal Henderson:
Kathy, you can't help who you love and who you don't love. Now, I love you, and I want you to be happy, and I don't love Bernice, but I want her to be happy, and I do love my children, and I want them to be happy, but I don't want my wanting Bernice to be happy to take away from my love for you. But my wanting my children to be happy, while not taking away from my love for you, will make Bernice happy, and therefore make the children happy. I want everyone to be happy. Everyone. You know, that could be my biggest fault.
Jerry: Brenda, let me tell you something about pot. When you take it, your taste buds become so physically sensitive that a grapefruit tastes like caviar. Your whole ability to touch to love to see to understand to feel to know is magnified so you could split the universe open like a walnut and know its secrets. Brenda: Okay, let me have some. Jerry: I don't have any. Frank Vecchio: We're all strangers. But after a while you get used to it. You become deeper strangers. That's a sort of love. Frank Vecchio: So, what's the story Ritchie? Richie Vecchio: We're just not compatible. Frank Vecchio: You hear that Beatrice, they're not compatible. Bea: I heard, but I'm not listening, Frank. Frank Vecchio: They're married for six years, all of a sudden they're looking to be compatible. Bea: It's a phase they're going through. Frank Vecchio: You stupid kids today, they don't know what to do with themselves, they get a divorce, for kicks. Bea: That's what it is, Frank, kicks. Richie Vecchio: Look, it's 1970, it happens to a lot of couples, there's nothing you can do about it. Frank Vecchio: It's never happened in our family! Bea: We don't believe in it. Frank Vecchio: It happens to people who don't give a damn. Bea: You think the king and queen of England would get a divorce? Frank Vecchio: Of course not. Bea: They don't believe in it. Frank Vecchio: That's why they're together all these years. Bea: They know what would happen to England if they broke up. Frank Vecchio: Yeah, but our son believes in it. Bea: He doesn't care what happens to England, he doesn't care what happens to anybody, it's 1970, so he's getting a divorce. Bea: Your brother's getting married, how can you get a divorce? Bea: I can understand her wanting to leave. But I can't understand her leaving.
