[Homer has asked Wilma into his bedroom to see what happens as he prepares for bed. After removing his hooks and harness, he 'wiggles' into his pajama top]

Homer Parrish:
I'm lucky. I have my elbows. Some of the boys don't. But I can't button them up.
Wilma Cameron:
I'll do that, Homer.
Homer Parrish:
This is when I know I'm helpless. My hands are down there on the bed. I can't put them on again without calling to somebody for help. I can't smoke a cigarette or read a book. If that door should blow shut, I can't open it and get out of this room. I'm as dependent as a baby that doesn't know how to get anything except to cry for it. Well, now you know, Wilma. Now you have an idea of what it is. I guess you don't know what to say. It's all right. Go on home. Go away like your family said.
Wilma Cameron:
[She kneels in front of him]
I know what to say, Homer. I love you and I'm never going to leave you... never.
[She kisses him]

Transcript:
Can't you get those things out of your system? - Oh, sure. - Maybe that's what's holding you back. The war's over. You won't get any place till you stop thinking about it. Come on, snap out of it. Okay, honey, I'll do that. I didn't tell you, Fred, but I got a little money saved. Dinner's on me tonight. You'd better keep on saving it, babe. It might come in handy sometime. I appreciate the offer, but we're eating at home. Well, I'm hungry. I'm going out by myself. You're not going out. You're gonna stay here and eat what I cook and like it. Let go of me. When we were married, the justice of the peace said something about... ...for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse. Remember? - This is the worse. - When do we get going on the better? Whenever I get wise to myself, I guess. Whenever I wake up and realize I'm not an officer and a gentleman anymore. I'm just another soda jerk out of a job. Now, go on and sit down and read a magazine... ...or listen to the radio while I cook the soup. I'll fix you a nice meal, honey. Just like I used to do behind the fountain, before the war. The Perfume and Cosmetics Department is now our outstanding feature. It accounts for 34 percent of our gross intake... ...and a higher proportion of our profits. As you will surmise, our customers in this department are almost exclusively women. Yes, I'd surmised that. Familiarize yourself with the pronunciation of the perfumes. For instance, here's a popular number. - Réve Romantique. - Yeah, that means romantic dream. - You speak French? - Well, I'll tell you, Sticky... ...just enough to make my way around the Paris bars. Let's get one thing straight, Derry. The name Sticky is out. - Yes, Mr. Merkel. I understand. - This week, we're pushing... ...the new champagne bubble bath preparation. A dollar ninety-eight for the large jar. Down here are some special made-- Come here. Down here are some specially made-up toilet sets. They don't represent a very great... - Good morning, Mr. Brook. - Good morning.
