    • Mike: Stuart, don't make me to bring up the Connie Chung restraining order.

    • James: I don't want to pull rank on you, but I almost went to film school. Carter: Really. You know, I almost give a--.

    • Stuart: Mike, that is classic denial. Mike: No it isn't.

    • Mike: All right, everybody huddle up, close your eyes, I want to paint you a mental picture. The Mayor is very vulnerable tonight, there are a lot of reporters here tonight, and also in attendance is a woman I will simply refer to as 'The Shark,' whereas The Mayor is like an older, slower-moving sea lion. Stuart (imitating Jacques Cousteau): I will stay aboard the Calypso, while my assistant, Mike, dives into the ocean to join in the life and death struggle between the shark and the noble sea lion.

    • Mike: I just came by to remind you this is a party, not a press conference. Please reserve any offensive, unfounded, potentially libelous questions until tomorrow when I will be happy to mislead, misdirect, and misinform you as per our usual arrangement.
