    • Rob: Doggone, if only Buddy hadn't been so nasty. Sally: Oh, he couldn't have been nastier if he made a living at it. Rob: Make a living at it? Sally, that's it! Let's hire somebody nastier than Buddy. Sally: I thought Jack the Ripper was dead.

    • Sally: (to Buddy) It's just like my mother always said: The sun isn't always shining just because there are sparrows. Buddy: What's that supposed to mean? Sally: I don't know, but ain't it pretty?

    • Mel: My hand. Jackie Brewster: Really? Is that your hand? Why, it looks more like five fat worms! Mel: I beg your pardon! Jackie Brewster: Why? You can't help it if you have worm fingers.

    • Jackie Brewster: For the last couple of years, I've translated the works of Shakespeare into Pig Latin.

    • Mel Cooley: Well, who's he? Jackie Brewster: See, he knows me already.
