CHARLES: Delia Deetz, welcome home.
CHARLES: It's okay, there's no damage. Look, see? It's okay. Good, sturdy, country craftsmanship. And look at that kitchen. You're finally gonna be able to cook a decent meal. Come and have a look.
DELIA: A little gasoline. Blowtorch. No problem […].
CHARLES: We're gonna have to rip out all that plumbing. Other than that, it's perfect. Just perfect. What do you think, honey?
LYDIA: Delia hates it. I could live here […].
CHARLES: Delia, let's get one thing straight. We're here to enjoy the country setting, not to trash the place!
DELIA: You're right.
OTHO: Charles, you're lucky the yuppies are buying condos so you can afford what I'm going to have to do to this place.
CHARLES: Otho, I'm here to relax and clip coupons, and, damn it, I mean to do it.
DELIA: Then go do it quietly, dear, and let Otho and I think.
OTHO: Is the rest of the house as bad as this?
After seeing how hard Adam and Barbara worked on their house, we get to watch Delia and Otho walk through and talk about gutting the place. At least Charles and Lydia like the country charm, but they're the two least powerful people in this family.
