9. You know, I always thought Freud was kidding around about Anal Retentives.

But, now I see! I see the light! It's so clear to me! IT'S ALL TRUE! THE MAN WAS A GENIUS!

Some background:

"In Freudian psychology, the anal stage is said to follow the oral stage of infant or early-childhood development. This is a time when an infant's attention moves from oral stimulation to anal stimulation (usually the bowels but occasionally the bladder), usually synchronous with learning to control his or her excretory functions, a time of toilet training. Freud theorized that children who experience conflicts during this period of time may develop "anal" personality traits, namely those associated with a child's efforts at excretory control: orderliness, stubbornness, a compulsion for control."
