    • Earl: I'm not so sure this is all about the kid anymore, and Monica happens to agree with me. Fran: You and Monica were talking about me? Earl: A lot of people are talking about you, Fran, and not all of it's good. Fran: Just say what you came here to say. Earl: Allright, I think you're getting just a little too caught up in this thing called show business. Fran: Anything more? Earl: Yeah, I got more, plenty more, you say you're doing this for the Baby? Well let me ask you this, who gets a ride in the limo? Who gets the cappuchino? Who gets herself a brand new dress for the awards ceremony? Fran: You think that's all this is? Earl: It doesn't matter what I think, it's what you think, and you better think hard.

    • Earl: I wish we'd never gotten involved with that corrupt world of money and power. Of course if they hadn't fired me, I wouldn't be saying any of this. Monica: No Earl, you're right, this is no place for someone like Fran. Earl: Geeze, you and I actually agree on something, now I'm really depressed.

    • Fran: I'm only doing this for the baby's college fund. Assistant: (holding up two dresses) Mrs. Sinclair, for your awards dinner? Fran: That one. Earl: Frannie, he just fired me! Fran: I realize that, Earl, but it would be irresponsible for me to walk out on the baby's career. I'll need an evening bag to go with that! Assistant: Right. Earl: He's a kid, he doesn't need a career!

    • Fran: You want to know how I'm going to raise my baby? Well it is not going to be on some movie lot surrounded by a bunch of two faced manipulative cellular phonies. He's going to be raised right here by a family who loves him and knows what's best for him.

    • Baby: There's my limo, call my agent, I'll be on the coast, I'm a player, gotta love me.
