Memorable Moments


  • Shirley: So help me, if you say "It's still your name on the door" I'll shoot you with one of your own guns!
  • Denny Crane: You know, the best part of my marriages has always been the first day.
Alan Shore: Just married. Grand thing. But for me there was nothing more devastatingly lonely than being married for a while.
Denny Crane: You never talk about your wife. What was she like?
Alan Shore: She had all the most delectable qualities one could hope for. Creativity, desire, zealotry, a gorgeous clavicle, healthy lack of inhibition.
Denny Crane: Sounds spectacular. What happened?
Alan Shore: She began to know me too well, and I began to hate her for it. Even when I was unpredictable, she'd predict it. For those of us who aspire to be original, that's the worst sort of banality. She died. I've missed that banality ever since.
