Quoth Dr. Philbert...

When showing my apartment to my potential replacement tenant his accompanying cohort attempted to spread the gospel of Philbert. To place it in context, my bestfriend was chilling on the futon as I "sold" the room. Philbert first suggested that my friend and I live together to ease the cost of living in Boston. I responded 'long story'. Unbeknownst to Philbert, my bestfriend and I one mere month prior ended our five year romantic relationship, as well were each happily dating someone new. Having picked up on the most miniscule inkling of the split, Philbert offered this gem:

"I don't see why two people should not live together over a disagreement. Instead they should just. . . agree."

The evil part of me enjoyed pretending that Dr. Philbert had just given me the 'Advice of the Year' worthy of my most humbled nod, shrug and additionally defeated "true".
My friend struggled to keep a straight face whilst I thought, "Wow, all up in the Kool-Aid and don't know the flavor!'"
