Ray Quote #590

Quote from Ray in The Lone Barone

Ray: Okay, here's something. You know how when you're sleeping and you, you kind of stop breathing? When you're married, there's always someone there to nudge you alive. All right, I don't know what I'm talking about. Look, look, this is marriage. You wake up in the morning and she's there. You come home at night and she's there. You eat, she's there. You go to sleep, there. And I know that sounds like a bad thing. But it's not. It's not. Not if it's the right person. Then it's good. It's good. It's really, really good.
Frank: I would like a minute for rebuttal.
Marie: If I were you, I wouldn't stop breathing in my sleep.
Ray: Okay, bad example.

Quote from Robert

Robert: I don't need any more advice, okay? I have my own reasons for not wanting to get married just yet.
Marie: All right, what?
Robert: You really want to know, Ma? Part of it is I've lived with you for most of my life. I've never been on my own. And I finally get my own place and Amy is already bringing me plants. I love Amy, but I'm not ready for plants.
Marie: I think you're being selfish, Robby.
Robert: Good! It's about time. 'Cause this is my life. Not yours, not yours, not yours and not even Raymond's. Raymond had nothing to do with this decision. I made it. Me! And if you think I made a mistake, I don't care. That's right, because I'm in charge of me now. And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going home. To my home. The Crown view Apartments, unit 9-F. It still says Chung on the buzzer downstairs, but that's me.

Quote from Frank

Ray: I'm kidding. I'm just kidding. I was- I'm joking, that's- You know men do that. We joke around about stuff like, like marriage. Right, Dad?
Frank: I don't know what you're talking about.
Ray: Come on! Like how about when you joke about how you wish a tidal wave would come and sweep Mom out to sea.
Frank: I have never been more serious about anything in my entire life.

Quote from Ray

Ray: I haven't had a chance because I've been waiting all day for Debra's damn curtains!
Robert: Curtains? What is it with the curtains? Amy's got a thing with the curtains too. What's with the curtains?
Ray: Tell me about it. I'm sitting here in my own filth for three hours waiting for curtains while Debra is off at all kinds of parties.
Robert: Parties?
Ray: Yeah, yeah. This is my life now. I'm a hostage. Trapped inside these four, all the walls here in this area.
Robert: What do you mean, hostage?
Ray: I'm a hostage! Look at me. I'm trying to blink you a message.
Robert: Huh? Come on, what are you saying? You're not happy?
Ray: I'm happy. I'm as happy as she lets me be. I sleep when she lets me sleep. I eat what she lets me eat. The only reason she keeps me alive is to open jars and kill bugs.
