    • Sam: Listen before you came to work at this bar I never thought that much about morality and integrity. You made me aware of all that stuff for the first time. Diane: Thank you, Sam. Sam: That's why I'm firing you. You can leave your apron right there on the counter.

    • Norm: Hey my face is new. Lana: Good you still have time to return it.

    • Sam (to Lana about Diane): I never mix in her personal life and she mixes in mine.

    • Diane: I've never been a big fan of the women you date. I will say that at least they were too stupid to be harmful. Sam: I know they'd grow on you.

    • Lana (about Sam): Who does he play with now? Carla: You give broads a good name.
