Love Is Love
Joseph: "We haven't lost a person -- we've lost a dog."
Beth: "Love is love. Does it matter if it's a dog?"
Again, 'Darling Companion' isn't so much about a missing dog -- it's about the search for that missing dog, and the feelings that surface as each of the characters deals with the changes in their lives, Beth and Joseph included.

More About Your Patients
Beth: "You know more about your patients than you do your own family..."
Beth has a point: Dr. Joseph Winter does tend to spend more time focusing on the patients in his care, than on the problems and needs of his wife and daughter.

It's Not Menopause
Joseph: "This is a difficult time for you, for both of us. And, especially for a woman, there are physical changes that affect everything..."
Beth: "Oh, tell me about being a woman."
Joseph: "I think that the anger you're feeling is not actually about me, it's hormonal."
Beth: "No, it's not menopause. It actually is about you."
Uh oh, Dr. Joseph Winter is treading on extremely thin ice here. When confronted with an overly-emotional wife who's worried sick about her missing dog -- and her life -- blaming it on menopause is not a good idea.

Things That Bug Me
Joseph: "The things that bug me about you never meant anything compared to how much I love you."
Joseph loves his wife. He makes that quite clear in this quote. People who've been married for a long time learn to adjust to a partner's quirks, and the things that irritate them mean very little when you look at the big picture.

Grace: "These next few weeks may be...hard on mom."
Joseph: "Oh she'll be fine."
Grace: "Will you make an effort?"
Joseph: "Well, I always do."
Grace: "Will you try harder...promise?"
Joseph: "Of course I will."
Grace recognizes that her mother is having a difficult time with the idea of being an empty nester. Joseph is so wrapped up in his work that he fails to realize that's what's going on.
