    • (Stanley is eating bacon and eggs, while Geoff makes a wheatgrass shake) Stanley (to Geoff): Whipped lawn clippings for breakfast, why didn't I think of that? Oh, that's right, I'm not a rabbit!

    • Elaine: Yeah, Carlisle used to just be totally interested in what made people tick, you know. That's how we met; I was interesting, and he was interested.

    • Elaine: Sometimes when you choose an older partner... Geoff: Older lovers are from Mars, and younger lovers are from Venus. Elaine: Yeah, more like young lovers are from now, old lovers are from 'Not now, dear.'

    • (Stanley asks about Mr. and Mrs. Wainwright) Stanley: Did you uncover the secrets to their success? Geoff: Drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. Stanley: What do you mean? Geoff: Medicine cabinet. Stanley: You didn't! Geoff: It looks like Marilyn Monroe's stomach in there.

    • (looking at a glass of scotch) Carlisle: The whole world in a glass... so many subtleties. Geoff: A toast to subtleties. Elaine: It's been a long tim esince you paid attention to any of my subtleties. Carlisle: Waste of energy, paying attention to something that isn't there. That's one of my favourite things about you, dear; you're clear as crystal.
