    I really want to see what this family tree looks like.

    I can tell you: a long vertical line.

    You have to give the man credit for believing in the power of marriage…even if he kept getting divorced every 6 months. At least he’s not a commitmentphobe.

    I’m going to go ahead and diagnose seasonal affective disorder (SAD). JR is burdened by two seemingly diametrically-opposed feelings: (a) the desire to be taken care of over the cold winter months and (b) the vernal euphoria once the ground thaws (mating season). He’s a victim, not a player. Also: Martha J. Davis was a whore.

    From Dr. Katz:

    Ben: Dad, I think I have S.I.D.S.
    Dr. Katz: (puzzled) Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Ben?
    Ben: I mean S.A.D.S

    Admittedly, this was a whole lot funnier when I didn’t know there was really a SADS.

    I think it’s obvious that Brenda B. DeLane is the whore here, not Martha J. Davis.

    Actually . . . they’re all pretty un-whorish. I mean, they were all married! That’s the way God intended, right?
