    • Rebecca: I'd love to be a fly on the wall. Sam: I'd be a fly on the ceiling. Rebecca: What's the difference? Sam: Better view of [Jean-Marie's] cha-chas.

    • Frasier: Jean-Marie. The name just glides off the tongue. I hope it doesn't do that when I'm in the rack with Lilith.

    • Rebecca: Oh it's Robin Colcord and that little tramp he's been seeing. Carla: Oh there's a picture of you in the paper.

    • Woody: I don't think Kelly would mind. If I'm not sleeping with her why would I be sleeping with somebody else? Carla: Wait a minute. You've been going out with Kelly for over a year and you're not sleepin' with her? Woody: Of course not. That's the sort of this you wait to do after you're married. Right, Mr. Peterson? Norm: Well you keep believing that, Woody.

    • Woody: [Terri] sounds like the perfect roommate. But I don't know. The thought of having a girl for a roommate, well I've got a real problem with that. Norm: Your girlfriend wouldn't understand, huh? Woody: Now I've got two problem. Sam: I get it. Your mom would disapprove. Woody: Make that three problems. Frasier: What? Do you have religious scruples? Woody: Oh great four problems. Sam: What was your original problem? Woody: Well I like to sit on the couch and leave the top button of my pants undone after a good frozen meal.

(Frieght elevators had already existed for some time.) There are now over 1.5 million Otis Elevators in use throughout the world.
