    • Mike: Well, man was his best friend. And as far as hobbies go, I'd have to say digging holes and licking himself.

    • Stuart: This isn't a wedding. We can't exactly say Bingo got cold feet. Nikki: Well, actually..

    • Mike: Now I don't care how you do it. You find me that dog or a damn fine replacement. I want everybody thinking about one thing and one thing only-- B-I-N-G-O! And the first person who says "...and Bingo was his name-o..." is fired!

    • (phone rings) Mike: Hello...Paul! This better be good news Paul...You better listen to me Paul. You better find me that damn dog or I'm gonna come over there, duct-tape a fur coat to your ass and shove you in a little box!

    • (Answering machine message) Carter: Mike it's Carter, here's the situation...Ow! Get off! Paul: Mike, Paul here. We seem to have run into a slight logistics problem with Bingo. Carter: Slight logistics problem? Mike, Paul lost the dog! Paul: I knew you were gonna blame me!
