Debra Barone Quotes

03x11 - The Apartment Season 3 / Episode 11: - The Apartment

Ray Barone: Listen, nothing was going on, nothing. Nothing happened. Nothing would happen...
Debra Barone: I know.
Ray Barone: You do?
Debra Barone: God, Ray, I mean, come on. I saw those women. Like you had a shot.
Ray Barone: Okay, you're hurt, you're lashing out now.
Debra Barone: Listen, all I want to know is why do you have to lie to me?
Ray Barone: I don't have to, it's... just my way.
Debra Barone: "Robert's touch and go, emotionally speaking." Why don't you just say, "I'm going over to Robert's to look at pretty girls"?
Ray Barone: I got to be honest with you, it never occurred to me to say that.
Debra Barone: Yeah, that's right, because I would have said no. And you would have to stop living vicariously through Robert.
Ray Barone: That's right, vicariously. Vicariously, just looking. Not thinking, not moving, just thanking God for the blessing that is my beautiful wife while I hang pictures. Vicariously.
