Steve Douglas Quotes
|Season 6 / Episode 1: - The First Marriage|
Mike Douglas: [the wedding party poses for a group photo] Smile, you guys!
Sally Ann Morrison: Yeah! [looks at Steve after the photo is taken] Just think, I don't have to call you Mr. Douglas anymore - Dad!
Steve Douglas: And this is the first time in my life I've ever used the word, "daughter."
Mike Douglas: Hey, that's right!
Robbie Douglas: Well, I look at it like this: I may be losing a brother, but I'm gaining a room. [Mike nods sheepishly]
Sally Ann Morrison: Oh honey, I just want to go thank Muriel.
Mike Douglas: OK. [gestures at Steve to join him a few feet away] Dad? [shakes hands with Steve] I just wanted to say thanks, Dad, for everything!
Steve Douglas: Oh Mike, there's nothing to thank me for. The bride's parents always pay for the wedding. All I did was stand around and nod!
Mike Douglas: No Dad, I mean for everything. For putting up with me, especially the last few years with the guitar lessons and hot rod cars - everything!
Steve Douglas: It all comes back double, Mike. Who'd have thought that my #1 son would turn out to be an assistant psychology instructor back East? I'm proud of you, Mike. For a lot of things. [they look at each other affectionately]
Ernie Douglas: Do you think the house is going to miss us?
Charley O'Casey: Sure, it'll miss us. The minute we get out of sight, it's going to break right down and start to cry out of all the faucets. The neighbors will sell tickets to see the crying house.
Steve Douglas: I'd like to think the house is going to miss us, Charley.
Charley O'Casey: Look, are we going to California, or are we going to stand here waving bye-bye to a pile of lumber?
Steve Douglas: Charley's right, fellas. Let's all...let's all pile in.
Charley O'Casey: Come on, let's go. Come on, move.
Chip Douglas: [They all climb into the car.]
Chip Douglas: Boy, Dad.
Steve Douglas: Now, Chip, when they transferred me to California, you fellas all thought it was a great idea, so... Well, there's no turning back now.
Chip Douglas: I know.
Chip Douglas: [to Ernie]
Chip Douglas: Hey, are you crying, Ernie?
Ernie Douglas: Heck, no. Tramp just breathed on my glasses and they steamed up.
