    • Wendy: Will you look at this. My very first Dippy Duck check. I feel like I joined the family business... Signed Sheree Winkler. Oh, are you the bookkeeper, too? Sheree: Oh, no, I'm not qualified to do anything like that. I just own the company.

    • Brooks: Bumps didn't come home last night. Sheree: Oh, dear. Brooks: I called the Ad Lib Club, and they said he started coughing in the middle of his act, left the stage to get a drink of water, and never came back. I've been up all night. Skip: You think maybe you should call the police? Brooks: Do you realize how foolish it sounds to call the police and tell them my 34-year-old son didn't come home all night? Skip: Doesn't sound foolish to me. Brooks: It did to the police.

    • Sheree: Hi, Bumps. Listen, you were so funny last night! I thought I was going to have a conniption when you drank from that dribble glass and got champagne all over your front! Bumps: Dribble glass? What's that?

    • Wally: When you were a kid, you had a lot of talent. Wendy: I got it all from my daddy. Wally: You got a lot of money from your daddy, too.

    • Skip: Wendy can do the job. You're a professional. All I'm asking is that you set aside your personal feelings and let her audition. Wally: I hope someday you get pregnant!
