->BETTER DROWNED THAN DUFFERS IF NOT DUFFERS WONT DROWN
-->--a telegram from the children's father, in ''SwallowsAndAmazons''

->'''Ned's Mother:''' [About a young Ned's destructive behaviour] You gotta help us, Doc. We've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas!
--> -- ''TheSimpsons'', "Hurricane Neddy"

->'''IndianaJones:''' It was just the two of us, dad. It was a lonely way to grow up, for you too. If you'd been an ordinary, average father like the other guys had, you'd have understood that.
->'''Henry Jones:''' Actually, I was a wonderful father.
->'''Indiana:''' When?
->'''Henry:''' Did I ever tell you to eat up, go to bed, wash your ears, do your homework? No, I respected your privacy, and I taught you self-reliance.
->'''Indiana:''' What you taught me was that I was less important to you than people who'd been dead for five hundred years in another country. And I learned it so well, we've hardly spoken for twenty years.
->'''Henry:''' You left just when you were becoming interesting.
