    • Corky: Murphy, I have to talk to you about something. Murphy: Look, Corky. Let's try not to be so depressed. Okay, our pride is hurt, but it's only one night. Corky: That's such a healthy attitude. Murphy: Let's not even watch the thing on TV. Let's go out, do something fun. Maybe go bowling, or… Corky: Murphy, I'm going to the ball. Murphy: What? Corky: Ken Dolan asked me--the White House caterer. I'll be spending a lot of the evening alone, but at least I'll get served first. I hope you're not mad at me, Murphy. Murphy: No, I'm glad you're going. It'll give me a chance to break into your apartment and set your clothes on fire. Corky: Oh, Murphy, you didn't mean that. Murphy: Yes, I did. I really did.
