Charlie: So what else did we learn tonight?
Alan: Well, let-let's see. I learned that, that to overcome my fear of rejection ingrained in me by an emotionally distant mother, I need to completely disable my central nervous system with semi-lethal quantities of alcohol.
Charlie: Do you feel better?
Alan: No, I don't feel better.
Evelyn: Did I say it wrong?
Charlie: We all want the shining red apple, but sometimes we got to settle for what's on the lower branch, or in some cases we take what's lying on the ground.
