Harriette tells off her ex-boss in the second episode (''Two-Income Family"), when he isn't too keen on rehiring her (for a different job).
Mr. Seeger: Quite frankly, this job is way out of your league.
Harriette: Oh really Mr. Seeger? For your information I have management experience coming out of my ears.
Mr. Seeger: Heh, it's not on your resume.
Harriette: Yes it is. Right there, see? It says Mrs. Harriette Winslow. I worked here full time and I was a full-time mom. You want to talk management? I managed a home, a household budget, and a family. And Mr. Seeger, I'm talking about a job you can't call in sick for, you never get a raise or overtime, and you can't take vacation. Everyday I'm a leader, an organizer, and a mediator! Those are my qualifications. You want references?! Call Eddie, Laura, and Judy Winslow and ask them about my work. You know the number.
