    • QUOTES (6)

      • Rona: Where the hell is the vodka?
        Diane: Rona?! It's seven A.M., how could you even say the word vodka? Let alone drink it.
        Rona: Like everything else in football, honey, it comes with training.

      • Diane: Roger, I really don't need a briefing on this interview.
        Roger: Diane, I've known Bill Buffet for years, back when he was nothing but a second rate ball player. Now he's a second rate host of a second rate T.V. show. Believe me, I know how second rate people think.
        Rona: You should.

      • Rona: Roger is of the opinion that you had no right to act like the owner of the team.
        Roger: Those five thousand tickets are reserved.
        Diane: For who?
        Roger: For our friends! Friends who are there whenever we need them. Friends who Paul made a deal with.
        Diane: Oh, in other words, your friends. The crooked Arcola family.

      • Brice: God is the Bulls number one booster, Bob. He loves football! Why, you know he told me that the Niners would win the Super Bowl last year... and they did. And he told me that the Bulls would have a new owner... and they did. And God told me that San Diego would win the World Series.
        Bob: Detroit won the World Series.
        Brice: Well, God doesn't know much about baseball, Bob.

      • (Trying to get Diane to start the second string quarterback.)
        Roger: I'm telling you, Brice Smith is the future.
        Diane: Good, because that's when Brice is going to play, in the future.

      • (Talking to her new quarterback.)
        Diane: Just don't disappoint me on Sunday.
        Bob: I've never disappointed a woman in my life.
        Diane: That's what I've heard.
