    • Lou: (about Gordy and Ted) They complement one another perfectly. One's sharp, one's dull. One's black, one's gray.

    • Mary: Why is he so concerned about what he's going to wear? Murray: Well, when you're Ted Baxter, you gotta hope that your clothes at least look intelligent.

    • Mary: Ted, aren't you going to the meeting? Murray: Is the Pope Catholic? Ted: I'm sure he is. (thinks for a moment)I don't think the last one was, though.

    • Ted: (To Lou) Why are you giving a 50-dollar-a-week raise to someone who told me to shut up on the air? Lou: It's all I could afford, Ted.
