    • Will: (after learning one guy drove off a cliff, another guy fought a fatal fight after being given a warning by his doctor, and a woman worked herself to death in her upper class job) Don't take this the wrong way or anything but y'all died for some pretty stupid reasons. Judith: That's where you're wrong. We may have paid the ultimate price, but at least we had everybody's respect. Will: Yes, their last respect.

    • Dead man: Ah, drinking contest are no good. You want to prove you are a real man you play Chicken. Two guys drive towards a cliff, the first one that stops looses. That's how I got here, I won! Will: I'm sorry let's review here. You went flying off a cliff, the guy who didn't is probably laying up under your woman right now. And you're stuck here playing eternal poker with no chips. Nice going buddy.

    • Will: You know Hank Farley is not your type. You strip away the shoulder pads, the muscles, and the dimples, and what you got? Jackie: You.

    • Carlton: (takes Will's keys) I'm going to drive Jackie home, you stay here. Will: Okay. (Carlton leaves) Hope you have fun driving my gym locker.

    • Carlton: Freeze! Will, what the heck do you think you're doing?! You can't drink! Will: Why not?! Carlton: Because you're underage! It's against the law mister! Will: Thank you McGruff the Crime Dog.
