she's gone to the dog show with her dog, chuck since when does she enter chuck in dog shows? she doesn't, dear. chuck likes to watch. leave it to vivian to have a wire-haired voyeur. that's where i should go. i'd rather watch a bunch of dogs sitting and heeling than listen to barry. idea, walter. maybe you'll learn how to roll over and play dead. i tell ya, i'd get a lot more sleep that way. d never have to go through another evening with that egotistical know-it-all. "know-it-all?" walter, the man has just written a best-selling novel. it's only a best seller in tuckahoe, and that's because you personally nagged half the town into buying his lousy book. walter, you are a small man, a very small man. you are an american bonsai. it just so happens that barry is a fascinating human being, and you would know that
instead of those dumb sports articles. they are not dumb! huh? "joe namath tells "how to make love with your helmet on." he got five commercials that way, maude. and two bad knees. you do all this research on a perfect car, then smash it into a tree. your insurance company raises your rates. maybe you should've done for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. and if you do have an accident, our claims centers are available to assist you 24/7. call for a free quote today. liberty stands with you?.
you want your glasses, walter, or does crossing your eyes turn you on? i can see it. i can see it! now what? all right, now, put two fingers of your left hand inside you mouth. now hold the needle with your right hand. now stick the needle in your right ear. carefully pass it down the ear canal. very funny, maude! you see, walter, i did that deliberately. now, that was far more vicious than anything barry's ever done, and you don't hate me. you love me. right, walter? ( gargling ) ( phone ringing ) hello? oh, hi, barry. ( gargling continues ) what? you're going to be a little late? no, that's all right. i--i--actually i invited dr. harmon over for cocktails.
, then i thought that just you, walter, and i would go out for dinner. ( gargling gets louder ) uh, look, barry, i'm sorry. what you hear is walter's famous imitation of jacques cousteau getting the bends. walter, please! i can't hear over that racket! yeah, hello again. ( coy ) oh, barry... ( laughing ) barry! ( loudly gargling ) god will get you for that, walter. ( coughing ) barr'? yeah, listen, don't worry. i promise you we'll just have a very quiet evening. okay, bye-bye. maude, we are not having dinner with that guy tonight. i told you i can't stand him. guy gets some special pleasure
like last time, in front of everybody, giving me that lecture on the difference between "infer" and "imply," as if i didn't know. come on, now, walter. he just gets impatient with ninnies who constantly misuse those words. are you inferring i'm a ninny? of course not, sweetheart. i'm implying you're a ninny. you were inferring. oh, another thing, walter, you don't have to worry about having dandruff on your tonsils. how you doing, dr. harmon? carol. what have you got there? oh, this is mr. witherspoon's novel. ( chuckles ) i see you're reading it to, carol. i wanna see if i can get him to sign my copy. i collect autographs, too. my prize is sigmund freud. you really met freud? met him? he was my analyst.
but i live by one rule in life-- never trust a doctor who has a couch in his office. okay, walter, go ahead. maude. go ahead, go ahead. leave me with a house full of people. you just go ahead. maude, i am, i am. i definitely am! i'm not going to spend another evening with barry witherspoon. that's it! for heaven's sake, walter, what cou be wrong with spending an evening with a famous author like barry witherspoon? you know, last week he had his picture in the women's wear daily. walter, that was a prejudiced remark. oh, what are you talking about? oh, come on, walter. didn't you hear yourself? the reason you dislike barry is because, subconsciously you resent the fact that he's ( whispering ) a homosexual. i don't resent anyone being a homosexual. neither do i. i adore gay people.
than bullfighters. what i do resent is your accusation. wait a minute, wait a minute. you mean this witherspoon is, uh... yes, but that has nothing to do with anything. once you get to know him, you'll love him. can't we just be friends? you see, walter, i can expect a remark like that from arthur, but you, i mean i-- i'm shocked to find out that you have a hang-up. what are you talking about? oh, come on, walter, you're ill, ill! outside you're mr. nice guy, and inside, super-jock. i resent that. what a terrible thing to say! what's all the fuss about? just because a man's homosexual? we think quite highly of them in england.
mrs. naugatuck, i just hate remarks like that. i'm beginning to realize i am the only person here who is not prejudiced. mother, you can't say that about me. i dated a guy that was gay. really? why? he was a marvelous dancer, and he did my hair for half price. carol! you said it anyway-- oh, carol, don't you understand you put homosexuals in a different category. well, at least i don't do that. it doesn't make any difference to me what a person is. although, i'm not surprised about this witherspoon. after all, he's a writer. oh, and all authors are homosexual, right arthur? i suppose eugene o'neill was gay. oh, that's different. he was irish. what has being irish got to do with it?! are you trying to tell me
i don't believe this. oh, that's because the notre dame football team is polish. you know--you see you all have problems. to me, barry witherspoon is just a sensitive, warm human being. and now, so far as i'm concerned, i would just like to drop the entire conversation. sure you would. the only reason you're so friendly with him is--is because barry is your personal homosexual. you're prejudiced in reverse! you're not serious, walter. of course, why didn't i think about it before? some people show off their new cars or their new house. you show off barry. walter, that's hilarious. oh, walter... stop laughing, maude. maude, you know i hate it when you laugh like that. oh, honey, i'm sorry. this is the first good laugh i've had
and you said, "thank god, now we'll get straight talk." maude, you know that i am right. about you and barry. he's your proof that you're the big liberal, completely unbiased. come on, walter. are you actually inferring that i'm that shallow? no. you're inferring. i'm implying. that's what is so petty about you, walter. you learn one dumb thing and then you laud it over everyone. i reserve the right to dislike any person, gay or not. when he's a rotten human being. i mean, just because carol, arthur, and mrs. naugatuck have a hang-up, that doesn't mean-- they have a hang-up?! ( shouting over each other ) what are you talking about?
shh... no, i'm gonna finish... ( muted bickering ) not another word about this. you hear me? not another word tonight, and i mean that, d especially omwalt barry, darling. mau. oh boy, what a day. i can't tell you how i've been looking forward to a nice, quite evening with friends. would you say no to a lot more money? [excited scream] you just won a million dollars! no thanks. nice balloons, though! or no to more vacation days? janet, i'm giving you an extra week's vacation! oh, ah... nooo. what? no way. who says no to more? time warner cable's all about giving you more. like the most free hd channels and virtually unlimited movies and shows on demand, so you can binge all day.

mrs. naugatuck, he invented the telephone. of course, so he could call me up and tell me how to use the camera. woo hoo hoo hoo... now, would everybody group in front of the bar there, altogether. that's it. no, that's not right. eh, mrs. findlay, would you mind changing over with, uh, carol, please. and doctor, yes? would you mind changing with mr. findlay? i wanted to stand-- no, that side. oh, arthur, that's all right. he'll autograph it. no, eh--eh, that's not right either. uh, would you all go back to your original positions? uhh... mrs. naugatuck: yes, that's it there. the tall one must be in the middle. eh, mrs. findlay, would you mind-- mrs. naugatuck, will you get on with it?! oh, all right. no need to get snippy. now, there-- now, wait a minute, 'ere.
and--and the gentlemens, would you squeeze in just a little bit more? oh, come on, walter. how's this? don't worry, walter. i never make passes at men with mustaches. ha ha ha ha, barry, ha ha ha... oh, you got the dorothy parker reference-- well, of course i did. heaven, i loved it. didn't you, walter? no, i didn't. uch a bad mood? oh, you hit a sore point with his mustache. it's molting. walter, what is the matter with you? barry was just making a little joke! i have made dozens of jokes about your mustache. you just don't like it coming from barry because of what he is. i have nothing against what he is, and you know it. please, walter, you cannot stay here in--in the kitchen. what will i tell barry? tell him i'm whipping up a batch of fudge. that is not-- not funny, walter.
oh, mrs. naugatuck, bug off! no respect for the photographer. a female frank sinatra, you are. now, look, walter, we both know what is bothering you. look, maude, if you tell me one more time what's-- walter-- listen, maude, i'm not going to go out there and get insulted again. look, i promise you, walter, everything will be all right. listen, i give you my solemn oath, he will not insult you again, my solemn oath, walter. ( sighs ) ( camera snaps ) good. thank you, very much. barry... barry, i'm... sorry i behaved so bad. badly, walter. should've remember that even in the school of hard knocks. that does it! i don't want a cheese doodle, maude! barry: don't talk with your mouth full. it's impolite. come on, put up your dukes! please, arthur. oh, this is gonna be a good one. please, no more pictures! i'm so sorry.
you'll be knocked out by a sissy. arthur, will you leave me alone?! arthur, leave. it's time for you to leave. if anybody wants a doctor, i'll be at the dog show. carol! yes, mother. upstairs! ( coughs ) will you come up later and tuck me in? up! listen to me, walter. you know what i think. no, what do you think?! oh, i think i'll go back into the kitchen walter, you've been trying to make a fool of yourself all night. you might as well finish the job. barry, i'm gonna throw you out of my house, but only because i don't like you as a person. i can understand that. you can? well, of course he understands, walter. you're so obvious. it's not that, maude. hey, wait a minute, calm down, you two. look, walter.
i tend to pick on you because you're so defensive, but it's part of my charm. ( maude laughs ) barry, you're such a rascal. maude has been helping me with my book. we're together so much. we like each other so much. this was bound to happen. wait a minute, barry. what was bound to happen? it's a classic case. the jealous husband. ( together ) "the jealous husband?" yes, i fill a need in her that you can't possibly fill. you're afraid that i'm-- for want of better words-- her intellectual lover. i have a little corner of your wife. of course, of course, that's it, walter. you're jealous. oh, i love you. maybe i am.
oh, honey, honey, you are jealous. but you silly billy, this is all so unnecessary. i mean, imagine being jealous of barry. what's so funny, maude? i mean, you and me, both-- i wish i was dead. were dead, maude. and as far as our relationship goes, that could be the ca. maude: oh, now, come on, barry. you know i didn't mean that. barry, you know me. i don't have a biased bone in my body. that's right. they're all in your head. oh, maude. you know, it's not walter. it's you. you're just another one of those guilt-ridden liberals that can't enjoy anything.
m getting angry now. you're getting angry-- yes, you're darn right i'm getting angry! you call yourself my friend. you've known me all these months. now you tell me that i have a hang-up about your homosexuality? well, let me tell you something, mary--uh, barry. maude, about the hang-up you don't have, let it bother the hell out of you. oh, oh, walter... oh, i am so humiliated. oh, walter, what have i done? walter, what have i done? just one thing, darling. you've learned that we all have biases,
and deal with them as good as we can. as well as we can, walter. underneath, i know i am a tolerant person. you are. you just have a little hang-up. but sweetheart, you have less hang-ups than anyone i know. oh, walter, i promise you i will die before i say anything derogatory about anybody again. aw, maude. look, maybe you'll feel better if we go out and have a good dinner. or a well dinner. oh, all right, honey, maybe so. good. whatta you feel like eating? french? italian? spanish? no, why don't we just go down to wong fu's
