Everybody has their off days... (20.01)

Chuck: What is it? Why are you just in the neighborhood?

Wendy: Do you ever feel alone, a little scared sometimes?

Chuck: I do, but you don't. Luckily we have these antioxidants. Those ought to do the trick. Huh? This is more than just a wave of loneliness, isn't it, that you're not saying. I mean, when it comes to keeping in good mental health, you're Jack LaLanne.

Wendy: Everybody has their off days. I guess I just wanted a little company. Besides, we have therapy later.

Francois Henri Jack LaLanne (September 26, 1914 – January 23, 2011) was an American fitness, exercise, and nutrition expert and motivational speaker who is sometimes referred to as the "Godfather of Fitness" and the "First Fitness Superhero”. He described himself as being a "sugarholic" and a "junk food junkie" until he was age 15. He also had behavioural problems, but "turned his life around" after listening to a public lecture about the benefits of good nutrition by health food pioneer Paul Bragg. During his career, he came to believe that the country's overall health depended on the health of its population, and referred to physical culture and nutrition as "the salvation of America"
