    • Becker: You did the right thing.
      Reggie: Good for me, I get to curl up with my conscience tonight.

    • Becker: Don't bother me with logic, I'm working off of spite here. Wear something roomy.

    • Reggie: Oh, don't be such a hard-ass.
      Becker: I said no nicknames!

    • Reggie: If I have to beg, I will.
      Becker: Alright, let's see what you got.

    • Reggie: We really liked each other.
      Becker: Reg, he's married. Everyone looks good.

    • Reggie: I'm meeting Richard for lunch today.
      Jake: Reg, you know that after eating you'll want to stretch your legs, which leads to taking a walk which leads to your apartment which leads to sex.
      Reggie: Fine. Maybe I'll just meet him for dessert.
      Jake: Bad idea. You'll eat too much which leads to feeling fat, which leads to changing clothes which leads to sex.
      Reggie: Coffee?
      Jake: Coffee? Coffee breath, which leads to mint which leads to a motel, which leads to sex.
      Reggie: Can we meet for water?
      Jake: Water? Why don't you just do it in the street?

    • Reggie (to Becker): I almost had an affair and you paid three hundred dollars for dinner. It's a first in both of our lives.

    • Becker: Oh Paul, it just occured to me that I might need something to wash all this down.
      Paul: A hose perhaps?

    • Reggie: Why would you want to go out with them again?
      Becker: Last night she fed her two fat kids on my dime, but tonight I'm the fatty and she's buying.

    • Sara: Richard, the kids and I spent five glorious days in Bermuda. That's an island.
      Jake: Yes. Filled with white people longing to be brown.

    • Jake: So, you had lunch with Richard?
      Reggie: We talked.
      Jake: Did you talk about the fact that he's married?
      Reggie: Every relationship has obstacles.

    • Becker: Sixty bucks for a salad and ice tea? Oh God! I'm never going to get over this.

    • Margaret: You're late.
      Linda: You're early. And with what you pay me you should be happy I'm here at all.

    • Reggie: Look, Becker, I'm grasping at straws here. I'm dateless and I'm desperate.
