The Do Better ListDebbie: "We're going to blink and be 90. We have to make a choice to do things different. I've made a list. It's the do better list. We're 40 years old, if we don't do something now, when are we going to do it? Your eyes are kind of glazing over."
Pete: "No, I'm just processing it all."
Debbie: "We have to exercise everyday. We have to get more involved in school. We have to have more patience with the kids. We're in it together, we're a team. We have to get happy!"
When Debbie realizes that she and Pete are getting older, she strives to make the next chapter of their lives happier. While Pete is tuning her our, she talks of getting healthier and, perhaps more importantly, happier.

When You Corner a RatCatherine: "Their daughter told my son that he looked like Tom Petty and in a negative way."
Pete: "Who's Tom Petty?"
Catherine: "You know who Tom Petty is!"
Ms. Laviati: "Catherine, control yourself"
Catherine: "This is what happens when you corner a rat! I'll chew through you!"
When kids act up, the mama grizzly bear side rears its ugly head and that's exactly what is happening when Pete and Debbie meet with fellow parent Catherine at school following an incident between their children.

I Do Want to Kill YouDebbie: "Why do we fight?"
Pete: "I don't know. It makes no sense at all."
Debbie: "It makes no sense."
Pete: "You get so mad at me. I feel like you want to kill me."
Debbie: "I do want to kill you."
Pete: "How would you do it?"
Debbie: "I don't know. I'd poison you. I'd poison your cupcakes that you pretend not to eat everyday and just put like enough in to just slowly weaken you."
Pete: "I love it"
Debbie: "I'd enjoy our last few months together."
Pete: "Me too"
Debbie: "Cause you'd be so weak and sweet and I could take care of you but while killing you."
Pete: "See, you know what I love about us? You can still surprise me. I figured for sure you'd knock me out with one fell swoop. You'd poison me. You'd extend it over a series of months."
Debbie: "Have you ever thought about killing me?"
Pete: "Oh yeah"
Debbie: "How would you do it?"
Pete: "A wood chipper"
Debbie: "A wood chipper?"
Debbie: "A wood chipper?"
Pete: "I know. Did you see Fargo?"
Despite subject matter including poison cupcakes and death via wood chipper this pillow talk between Pete and Debbie is actually kind of sweet.

38 and Not 40Sadie: "Why does it say 38 and not 40?"
Pete: "Cause your mom wants to be 38. Let's not mention it again."
Turning 40 is a big thing for anyone. Like most women, she's opting to reverse the years and instead turn 38… for the second time.

I Lie About My Age, OK?!Nurse: "On your form it said you were born in 1974 but your paper, it said 72."
Debbie: "It's 1974"
Gyno Nurse: "Oh wait, on your last form you said that you were born in 1975."
Debbie: "I lie about my age, OK?!"
Dr. Pellegrino: "OK"
Dr. Pellegrino: "OK"
Dr. Pellegrino: "I know know how old you are, by counting the rings."
What's more awkward than going to the gyno for your yearly exam? Being bombarded about questions as to why the dates of birth on your forms don't match. Thankfully the doctor was there for some comic relief.

You Touched My Nipple!Pete: "Your son said some offensive things about my daughter."
Catherine: "Oh really? You better get her meds right."
Pete: "Excuse me? Your kid is an animal. He insults my daughter again he'll be so sorry!"
Catherine: "You touched my nipple!"
Pete: "I got right below your shoulder!"
Catherine: "I have very high nipples."
When Pete points at Catherine to make a point, he was not by any means prepared for the response he'd get. Let's just say not everyone has nipples in the same spots.

Separated by Something BiggerPete: "This sounds horrible but do you ever wonder what it would be like if you and your wife were separated by something bigger, like her death?"
Barry: "I have given that a fair amount of thought."
Pete: "Not any painful way but just like a gentle floating off."
Barry: "It's gotta be peaceful, I mean, this is the mother of your children."
Pete: "Then the new wife would be great!"
Barry: "God, I can't wait to meet my second wife. I hope she likes me better than this one."
It shouldn't be surprising that men think about what their lives would be like if their wife was out of the picture but it is comforting to know that they are not planning some violent death scene to accomplish that.

No TechnologyDebbie: "Daddy and I are making some changes. We have decided to cut back on all the electronics we use."
Pete: "You're on the computer too much."
Debbie: "You don't spend enough time with the family."
Sadie: "You can't take away the wifi!!!"
Pete: "You're on the computer too much. You need to get outside more."
Debbie: "You can built a fort!"
Sadie: "And do what in a fort?!"
Debbie: "You need to develop your imagination! You don't need technology!"
Charlotte: "No technology!"
Debbie: "Charlotte, put that down."
Pete and Debbie don't mean to intentionally punish the girls by limiting the wifi, they just want to get the girls to enjoy childhood like they did, simply.
