    • Sam: Is there anything I can do? Diane: No. This problem is strictly between myself and Frasier Crane. Suffice to say, he insists on making mountains out of molehills. Carla: He wants you to wear a padded bra?

    • Carla: [Eddie's] got an extra ticket to the RV show for tonight Coach. How's that sound? Coach: Terrific Carla: Well go ahead. I'll cover for ya. Coach: Hot Dog! Carla: Some luck, huh Eddie? Eddie: Well I guess I'm not going to get a good night kiss. Carla: You might if you're nice to him.

    • Diane: I'm amazed we could pull that off. Sam: Pull what off? Diane: Fooling a man so versed in human behavior. There is a spark. Isn't there, Sam? Sam: Well uh gee. Diane: I don't think it would take much encouragement to turn it into an inferno.

    • Diane (to Frasier): Do you know that in his arrogance he thought that when I called out Sam I was referring to him? Sam: And you weren't? Diane: No! It was a different Sam entirely. It was Sam Goldwyn. His movies always gave me great pleasure.

    • Diane (to Sam): Don't be coy. It doesn't go with a sloping forehead.

    Notes (1)

    • Writers Peter Casey & David Lee earned a 1985 Emmy nomination for their work on this episode. Casey & Lee were producers of "The Jeffersons" at the time and were looking to make the move to "Cheers." Contractual obligations kept them at "The Jeffersons" for the 1984-85 season. However, after that show's cancellation in 1985, Casey & Lee were free to join "Cheers" as producers, bringing with them "Jeffersons" story editors Cheri Eichen & Bill Steinkellner. Casey, Lee, Eichen, and Steinkellner would be key players throughout the remainder of "Cheers'" lengthy run.
