Felix Unger: [Felix is apologizing to Randy's mother for Uncle Oscar's earlier behavior as a Big Brother] We weren't too well organized last week. All I can do is apologize. Mr Madison has certain primeval characteristics. But I promise you, no more pool halls, and no more unbalanced meals.

Mrs. Grainger: That didn't worry me.

Felix Unger: It didn't?

Mrs. Grainger: Well, a little at first, when Randy mentioned spitting, but after all, that's why I entered him into this program... A boy who lives alone with his mother needs a man's influence, and after a day with Uncle Oscar, Randy was all boy. Of course, there were a few things which had to be adjusted, like calling his grandmother 'a sweet old broad', but I can handle that.

Randy Grainger: [sheepishly] She straightened me out.”
