When your wife is making tuna fish for sandwiches and you remark "Sometimes life is like tuna with not enough mayonnaise"

When you're watching fiddler on the roof and they come to "tradition" and you stand up and yell out "Yes! Sobriety is a Family Tradition!"

When your wife tells you the news that she is expecting you say 'Well, the reason that I'm acting as if I'm pregnant, is because I'm expecting too. I should be accepting.
