  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Ally: What if this had happened to your wife. Supposed she had had a former husband who was a vegetable. You... wouldn't be married! Did you ever think of that?
      Rabbi Stern: I'm not married.
      Ally: And you wonder why.

    • Karen: I was invited to leave the synagogue altogether.
      Ally: Excuse me?
      Karen: [Rabbi Stern] said it was one thing to stick a lawyer on him, yet another to send somebody who didn't like men, and still yet another to hire a Jew-hater, and to wrap all three of them up in one waify little package.
      Ally: He called me 'waify?'
      Karen: Oh, great! Make it about you.

    • Ally: That's the thing about me. I make all my clients forget about all their troubles by giving them bigger ones.

    • Ally: (to Rabbi Stern) I have a habit of saying the wrong thing when I'm upset. I mean, if you could fill this room with everybody I've offended, people would probably think you're a much better rabbi than you are.

    • Ally: I am so indifferent to every man I meet these days. It's rare that one comes along who I could so immediately dislike, so I figure there must be something behind that.
      Rabbi Stern: This is how you ask me out?

    • Richard: Helping people is never more rewarding than when it's in your own self-interest.

    • Ally: You are a vicious Rabbi and I am going to write a letter!
