Bob's a special kind of friend. The kind that drives you crazy!


Bob: Have you ever hear of Tourette's syndrome? Involuntarily shouting profanity?
Dr. Marvin: It's exceptionally rare.
Bob: Shit-eating-son-of-a-bitch... bastard, douche-bag, twat, numb-nuts, dickhead, bitch!
Dr. Marvin: Why exactly are you doing this?
Bob: If I fake it then I don't have it. You know it's the same with the cardiac arrest.

Dr. Marvin: Are you married?
Bob: I'm divorced.
Dr. Marvin: Would you like to talk about that?
Bob: There are two types of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him.

Bob: Baby step on the bus, baby step on the bus...
Driver: Last bus to Lake Winapinasaukee, Bob!
Bob: I know Minh, just give me a moment. Baby step to the stairs.
Driver: Would you be able to board today? We have a "baby" schedule to keep.

Bob: [to himself] Baby step to 4:00, baby step to 4:00.
[a customer attempts to use the phone]
Bob: Sorry, could you wait? I am expecting a call from Dr. Marvin.
Mr. Guttman: Dr. Marvin? Dr. Leo Marvin?
Bob: You know him?
Mr. Guttman: Know him? He bought our dream house!
Mrs. Guttman: Son of a bitch!
Mr. Guttman: She never says that.
Mrs. Guttman: We scrimped and saved for years for a down payment. Then he comes in with a sack full of money and buys the house right under our noses! Stay away from that man.
Bob: No problem; he will not see me.
Mr. Guttman: Won't see you, eh? Well, we will show you where he lives.

Dr. Marvin: You've ruined my life! You've ruined my career! You've ruined my book! You turned a peaceful house into an insane asylum! Get out!
Anna: Daddy!
Fay: My god, Leo What's gotten into you?
Dr. Marvin: It was a disaster, Fay!
Fay: No, it wasn't. You were wonderful, sweetie.
Anna: You were fine, dad.
Siggy: Yeah. Why'd you need to kick Bob out of the House?
Dr. Marvin: You think he's gone? He's not gone! That's the whole point, He's never gone! [Opens the door]
Bob: Is this some radical new therapy?
Dr. Marvin: You see?!

Siggy: [the Marvins have told Bob to leave, and they are saying farewells] Goodbye, green-puking pissant!
Bob: Later, barf-breath douche-mouth!

Siggy: I mean, my dad just dropped me in the water. He let me go with no warning. I mean, I nearly drowned. My whole life passed before my eyes.
Bob: You're lucky you're only 12.
Siggy: It was still grim.

Dr. Marvin: I want some peace, and quiet.
Bob: I'll be quiet.
Siggy: I'll be peace.
