    • Carla: Hey Cliff, when you were in the hospital did they give you a lobotomy? I mean it suits ya.

    • Woody: Sam's giving Dr. Sternin driving lessons. Cliff: Shouldn't he be giving her personality lessons. (gets shocked)

    • Frasier: Where is Mr. Clavin? Nurse: He was just discharged. Frasier: Oh great! Just my luck. (Cliff walks in behind him) I'm the one who gets to run all over town to find a stupid card for the idiot Clavin and he isn't even here. (Turns around and sees Cliff) Just a token of how much we care.

    • Norm: Yeah, why wasn't it the stupidest? Frasier: Well frankly it lacks meaningless statistics and inane historical trivia. Say where is Cliff anyway? Sam: Yeah is he still in hospital? Norm: I don't know. How's he doin'? Sam: I thought you were gonna go see him. Norm: Well I tried. I mean I got as far as the hospital lobby but you know that smell of alcohol makes me really queasy. (motions for a beer refill)

    • (Lilith asks Sam to teach her how to drive.) Lilith: How do you think I'll do? Sam: I've never had a woman in a car that didn't do great. Lilith: Wonderful. You teach me to drive and I'll help you with your sense of humor.
