Quotes / Unconfessed Unemployment

There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work
He's buying time
Brandon Heath, "Give me Your Eyes"

Peter: Look, I don't want your mom to worry, all right? When she worries, she says things like "I told you so" and "Stop doing that, I'm asleep." So, I'm just gonna tell a little lie. Now not a word to your mom about me getting canned.
Lois: What's that, Peter?
Peter: Nothing. Ooh, the lost-my-job smells great.
Lois: What?
Peter: Uh, Meg, honey, could you pass the fired-my-ass-for-negligence?
Lois: Peter, are you feeling okay?
Peter: I feel great! I haven't got a job in the world!
