320. Move Over

Aired March 1, 1999

Ray is uncomfortable with how Debra sleeps.

Quote from Robert

Robert: So a policeman's job is to protect and to serve and to make all of us feel safe. I want to thank you for having me in for show and tell. And, uh, are there any questions?
Boy: Are you a giant?
Robert: Not really. Any questions about being a police officer? Yes, you.
Girl: Could I climb on you?
Robert: Uh, not right now. I think I have time for one more question.
Boy: Are you going to eat us?

Quote from Ray

Debra: I'm sorry. I'll try to stay on my side from now on.
Ray: And not touch me.
Debra: Not touch you?
Ray: Okay, great.
Debra: Wait a minute! Wait a minute! What the hell are you talking about?
Ray: It's just hard for me to sleep with touching.
Debra: Me touching you? Oh my God, Ray! You know most husbands like cuddling with their wives.
Ray: No, they don't.
Debra: Yes, they do!
Ray: No! Nobody likes that! Nobody! The only time a guy likes cuddling is if he thinks it's gonna lead to... to lower cuddling.

Quote from Ray

Debra: I don't believe it. When did this start?
Ray: When we started sleeping together.
Debra: So you haven't said anything for nine years?
Ray: I wouldn't have said anything now.
Debra: Have you slept down here before?
Ray: Just a couple of times. Look, I don't have to do it anymore. I'm happy just to suffer through it, that's all.
Debra: Suffer through it?
Ray: All right. Suffer might have been the wrong word.
Ray: Look, the touching never use to bother me before! It's just, maybe it's 'cause I'm older. You know? Things change. Like now I can't handle anything hickory-smoked.

Quote from Ray

Ray: Father Hubley?
Father Hubley: What? Oh, Raymond.
Ray: Yeah, how you doing, Father? I was just in the neighborhood.
Father Hubley: Do you want something?
Ray: Yeah, um listen, I'm having this problem and all the real shrinks are booked up for six weeks.
Father Hubley: How flattering.

Quote from Frank

Ray: Hey, cranapple. Oh, you're here. What? I'm just trying to say hello to Debra. Hello. [kisses Debra]
Frank: So say hello. Don't make a meal out of it!
Marie: You know, you could kiss me hello, Frank.
Frank: How about a kiss goodbye?
Ray: Do you mind? I'd like to be alone with my wife.
Frank: Why?
Marie: He's just trying to make up for whatever it is he did wrong.
Frank: What did he do, kill somebody?

Quote from Ray

Debra: What's all this? Did you sleep down here?
Ray: No, no, no. I didn't want to keep you up while I was reading.
Debra: Really? What were you reading?
Ray: A book.
Debra: Yeah? Which one?
Ray: Yeah, the one, uh some people die and then there's a picnic.
Debra: Did you figure out how to unscramble the naked channel?
Ray: No! Did you?

Quote from Ray

Debra: Why are you down here? Are you okay?
Ray: Yeah, sure, sure. Whatever.
Debra: What?
Ray: What?
Debra: You said whatever weird.
Ray: I say a lot of things weird. What, you think you say it so perfect?

Quote from Ray

Debra: Ray.
Ray: All right, look. The reason I came down here is 'cause sometimes you're... You're too on me.
Debra: What?
Ray: In bed when we're sleeping, you don't stay on your side and then sometimes I can't sleep.
Debra: Oh, what are you saying? I hog the bed?
Ray: I know you're small, but that's in regular space, you know? In bed space, you're like one of those things in the scary movies with all the arms. And wherever you go on the spaceship you can't get away from it. Hey, where is he? He's not over here? Then, whoa! Aahhh! Aah!

Quote from Ray

Debra: Maybe you should get outta here, Ray? You never know when I'm gonna touch you in a non-sexual way.
Ray: Oh, come on. Don't be mad.
Debra: Don't be mad?
Ray: Look, you wanna know something? I'll tell you the truth. This whole thing is my grandmother's fault. Nonny Barone.
Debra: Yes, of course, Nonny Barone, the woman who brought dysfunction to America.
Ray: No, this is gonna sound dumb, but, every summer we had to visit her in Yonkers. She had this tiny apartment. Robert and I went to bed on the fold-out couch. All night long, he'd be up against me. I couldn't breathe. I was like, suffocating. I couldn't do anything. I couldn't say anything because he'd wake up and then he'd laugh and try to crush me. And if I screamed to stop him, Nonny Barone would come in and yell at me for the screaming. So, most nights I just lay there awake. That's it. I don't know. I've never gotten over that. I'm sorry. I never thought about it before, but that's gotta be it, you know? But listen, it's my problem, all right? You just-- you touch me all you want. I'll huddle, cuddle, hug, snug. Do it all because it'll be good for me.

Quote from Ray

Ray: Hey, jambalaya!
Debra: Mm-hm.
Ray: Coffee?
Debra: Nope, no coffee. I drank it all. I am very tired.
Ray: Really?
Debra: Mm.
Ray: Eh.
Debra: Where are you going?
Ray: Across the street to get some coffee.
Debra: Oh sure, have your mother think I'm so terrible I can't even give my husband his morning coffee.
Ray: Aw, come on. She thinks that already.

Quote from Robert

Robert: Hey, Deb, you okay?
Debra: No, I couldn't get comfortable sleeping last night. And you know what? It's all your fault. That's right. How come you had to torture Ray at Nonny Barone's?
Robert: What do you mean?
Debra: You know, when you were kids and you slept on the pull-out couch together.
Robert: We never slept on a pull-out couch together.
Debra: Yes, you did. At Nonny Barone's little apartment in Yonkers.
Robert: Apartment? She had a nice house. We each had our own room. Oh, those were happy times.

Quote from Ray

Ray: Okay! Got some coffee and bag of Mom's homemade jelly doughnuts.
Debra: Liar!
Ray: Really, they're from scratch.
Debra: You made up that whole story, didn't you, Ray?! Nonny Barone, the apartment, the pull-out sofa bed.
You never slept with Robert, did you, Ray?! It was all a lie! You liar!
Ray: It wasn't a lie!
Debra: Oh, Robert told me!
Ray: Okay, it was a lie!

Quote from Ray

Ray: This is what the wait a minute is about. I mean sleep as in asleep.
Father Hubley: Oh, you mean actually sleep.
Ray: Yes! Thank you, yeah. You know, like, she's over here. And then... Then she moves over here, you know? And I gotta move over here. And she touches me and then, then she hugs and then she holds. Oh, believe me, you're better off without it.

Quote from Ray

Father Hubley: Maybe it would help if we looked at this from Debra's perspective.
Ray: Why?
Father Hubley: Well, to, uh understand why she does what she does. Why do you think she needs to touch you at night when you're trying to sleep?
Ray: [long pause] I got nothing.
Father Hubley: Uh, Raymond, I want you to close your eyes.
Ray: Why?
Father Hubley: Close them. Close them! Now. Try to imagine that you are Debra.
Ray: "I need new shoes!"
Father Hubley: As Debra what is happening in your life that makes you want to cling to your husband in bed?
Ray: Hold on, when I tap myself on this side it sounds much more muffled than this side.
Father Hubley: Open your eyes, Raymond. Open them, open them!
Ray: Sorry, sorry. Hey, where's my wallet? Kidding!

Quote from Ray

Father Hubley: Raymond. Maybe Debra's missing a sense of intimacy. She may not feel close to you during the day, so she seeks out that closeness at night.
Ray: That makes sense. What do you mean?
Father Hubley: Do you touch her during the day? Do you kiss her? Stroke her hair? Hold her hand?
Ray: Okay. See, we're married.
Father Hubley: You need to show your loved ones how much you care. It doesn't end with the honeymoon, Raymond.
Ray: I know.
Father Hubley: You should express your love to Debra all day long. Go home and show her how much you love her. Now.
