      (Bud and Kelly nod in agreement)

    • Marcy: (to Steve while pointing to Al) You loaned this man 50.000 dollars? That's a thousand dollars an IQ point. And I can't blae Al. A man gives a gun to a chimp and the chimp shoots someone, you don't blame the chimp. Al: Hey. That was a hidden dig at me, wasn't it? Let me tell you something, the opera ain't over until the last heterosexual falls asleep. And this idea will work! Marcy: How many calls did you get tonight, Al? Al: Dr. Shoes files are confidential. Marcy: None, you got none! Al: None today. Tomorrow, twice as many.
