    • Bobby (to Connie): You're going to fail a test on purpose? You have never been more beautiful to me than you are right now.

    • Bobby: You've been a valuable part of the organization for two years now, and -- Connie: Are you firing me?

    • Bobby: I don't want to hurt her feelings, but I've never broken up with anybody before. Hank: Well, I've only been with your mother, and we never broke up. But I have had to fire people at Strickland Propane. You gotta be honest. Tell them that they didn't meet your expectations, and give them a good recommendation.

    • Bobby: My God, what happened to the Mrs. I.P. Daley I checked into the Jolly Roger with? Connie: She doesn't want to pick a medical school based on what clown college you get into!

    • Dale: Let's see... I told you about the sperm-count-lowering soft drinks... I told you about Supercuts cataloguing DNA... I'm running dry here, people... oh! Is there any concrete evidence that Hawaii actually exists? No, I covered that.
