    • Frank: I think the point, Murphy is trying to make is that at one time or another we've all been deeply embarassed. I mean who here hasn't dropped a tray in the caffeteria. Jim: Terrible. Frank: Or flooded a toilet at someone else's house. Corky: My biggest fear. Frank: Or lost the inflatable woman your friends got you for your 16th birthday only to find your little sister floating on it at the Flatbush Community Pool. Your turn Corky.

    • Miles: I can't believe I let you rope me into this. Here I am, a successful man in my 30's suddenly I'm back shopping with my Nana Silverberg. Oh, oh yeah, that was fun. She'd take me to Saks, have them bring out jacket after jacket until she found the perfect one and then when they weren't looking she'd write down the style number, fake heart palputations and we'd wind up on the lower east side buying the same suit, wholesale out of the trunk of a car. The routine became so well known, the first time she had a real heart attack she lied on the floor of Bloomingdales for an hour and a half before anyone realized she was serious.

    • Frank: I'll take you shopping. Murphy: Oh great you'll both come back looking like Italian peasants with your shirts buttoned up to here. Frank: GQ, babe, hot for spring. Murphy: What year, Frank? 1982.

    • Miles: Alright, alright, lets just pick this up after lunch. How 'bout two. No, better make it two-fifteen that'll give me enough time to run over to Brooks Brothers and get a new tie. Murphy: Oh, haven't you heard there all out. Big problem at the factory. Apparently the silkworms got so sick of churning out those stripped numbers that they spun little nooses and hung themselves.

    • (While joking about Murphy seeing Miles' penis)
      Miles: Yeah, it is funny. Hey, want to see a movie? I hear the Fly is being reopened. And there's also Free Willy. Hey, knock-knock...
      Others: Who's there?
      Miles: MY PENIS! THIS IS NOT FUNNY!
