Marvin Monroe Icon.png "Apparently therapy is more like LSD than crack."
Marvin Monroe Icon.png "If only there were another way for an overeducated man to make money."
Professor Frink Icon.png "What about an NSF research grant? It's how I make ends meet."
Marvin Monroe Sad Icon.png "That would be a great idea, but psychology is not a real science."
Professor Frink Icon.png "Neither is what I do, with the whatzitmatrons and combulators and robots built to love that always leave me for other robots."
Marvin Monroe Icon.png "By God, you're right! If biologists can call themselves scientists, then so can I!"

Marvin Monroe Happy Icon.png "This study is going to get me published and rock the psychiatric world!"
Marvin Monroe Happy Icon.png "You're the most advanced ten-year-old I've ever worked with!"
Kearney Icon.png "That's because I'm in my twenties. Or forties. Oh, who knows -- sometimes I have grandkids."
Marvin Monroe Surprised Icon.png "So you're an adult?"
Marvin Monroe Sad Icon.png "Then you're not above average at all. Quite a bit below, in fact."
