Lucy: Well as they say on TV, the mere fact that you realize you need help proves you're not too far gone!

Homer: And Lisa, what have you learned?
Lisa: Nothing. Like many women I still have an unhealthy obsession with my weight.
Homer: But talking about the problem is the first step toward the solution, right?
Lisa: I guess... but there’s a long way to go.
Homer: C'mon, say something conclusive!
Lisa: I’m afraid this is a very open-ended problem.
Homer: Aughhh, open-ended?! Come on, Lisa, say everything’s fine!
The Simpsons, "Sleeping With The Enemy"

Dr. Foster: He said he hates his parents! Do you know what that means? [...] It means he's cured!
The Simpsons, "Hurricane Neddy"

Some kind of therapy, is all I need
Please believe me
Some instant remedy,
That can cure me completely

Jack: Wait a minute. You had your problem with Carol in Las Vegas.
Liz: So?
Jack: The Tom Jones poster. Tom Jones plays Vegas all the time. He has billboards everywhere.
Liz: No kidding, there was one right outside our... hotel room window. Oh my God!
Jack: Think back to your college boyfriend, was there any...
Liz: Yes! When this happened with Joel, "What's New Pussycat" was playing on the bus we were on, I mean the room we were in. And when it happened with Dennis, he had just gotten a perm!
Jack: Tom Jones is the trigger. He makes you remember your mother taking the people away!
Liz: Does this mean I'm fixed?
Jack: Oh God, no, you've got years of therapy ahead of you, probably electro-shock, but this is a breakthrough, Lemon. And a big one.
