Quote of the episode:

JOHN: “I said that because I don’t think you can love or hate words. They’re just words.

GROUCHO: Ah … very poignant.

JOHN: There are lots of words out there and they only have meaning when you give them meaning. So words are tools. As good tools and bad tools. So ‘cheese’ can be as good a word as it is a bad a word.”
