Ray Quote #839

Quote from Ray in Left Back

Debra: Something bad is coming. Am I right?
Sarah: No, no, not at all. Let's just, um... Well, here. This is a test where the child is asked to cut with scissors on the line. So here's Geoffrey.
Ray: That's pretty good there.
Sarah: And Michael. Michael just needs to work on this skill a little.
Ray: A little? What, did he chew the paper?
Sarah: Michael just doesn't know how to hold the scissors properly and he seems a little reluctant to try.
Debra: So why do you think that is?
Ray: Is he stupid? You should tell us.

Quote from Marie

Ray: You tell your brother this!
Robert: I couldn't.
Ray: Why?
Robert: Because.
Ray: Because why?
Robert: Because I felt sorry for you.
Ray: You felt sorry for me? You felt sorry for me?
Debra: Ray, it was just pre- [Ray groans]
Robert: I was just- [Ray groans]
Frank: Uh... [Ray groans and walks out]
Marie: Maybe I should have waited another year to tell him.

Quote from Frank

Marie: Raymond's upset. It's okay, dear. It's just preschool.
Debra: That's what I told him. And if he has to stay, Geoffrey will stay with him.
Marie: Oh, that's good.
Frank: No, no, no!
Debra: Why not, Frank?
Frank: Law of nature, you get left behind, you get eaten. You're too soft on the kids. You gotta push 'em, push 'em forward. Just keep pushing 'em!
Debra: Until when, Frank?
Frank: Until they cry. That's nature's way of letting you know you've pushed enough.
Robert: Here's a man they let have two children.

Quote from Frank

Frank: What, now you're mad? I don't get you two! I'm thinking of the kid. You know, we thought that leaving little Raymond back didn't hurt him any, but who the crap knows? You could have been a year ahead in your life right now. That car you're saving up for? You could be driving that today. You could have bought the house a year sooner, met Debra a year sooner, had the kids a year sooner which if you did, by the way, would put Michael right on track and we wouldn't have to have this conversation!
Debra: All right, just hold it, Frank. Do you wanna help the kids? Why don't you start by setting a decent moral example? None of this matters! Do you understand? They're four. We just want them to be healthy and happy!
Frank: Good luck on that one.
Debra: That's where you get it from.
Ray: That's great. I'm gonna be stupid and bald.
