  • Quotes

    • Becker: We need to talk.
      Reggie: Talk?
      Becker: Yeah, I'm afraid so. Maybe we should sit down.
      Reggie: Talk and sit?

    • Mrs Recinos: Margaret, I'm here, right on time.
      Margaret: I guess third time's the charm.

    • Bob (singing): Hello, hello, hello...
      Becker: What are you doing?
      Bob: Nothing. Can't a guy say hello?

    • Becker (to patient): There's no such thing as a stupid question. (he walks away) Idiot!

    • Jake: Reg, you're funny, smart, and sweet, any guy would be lucky to have you.
      Reggie: You think so?
      Jake: (in a high tone) Sure I do.

    • (Bob and Margaret are laughing at Becker's college photo)
      Jake: Um, a little help here.

    • Jake: Reg, you don't look so well.
      Reggie: I was up all night.
      Jake: Oh! New boyfriend.

    • (Reggie has just searched through Dan's personal belongings)
      Dan: (hands her a glass of wine) I'm sorry about these plastic glasses. I haven't found my wine glasses yet.
      Reggie: Oh, they're right in...that's okay.

    • Linda: Hi Reggie.
      Reggie: Hey, Linda. Why are you wearing a bed spread?
      Linda: It's Margaret's and I hate it.
      Becker: Then take it off. (Linda reveals her see-through top) Put it back on.

    • Mrs. Recinos: Margaret, what time is my appointment?
      Margaret: Eleven a.m... tomorrow.
      Mrs. Recinos: Oh my! I forgot, where does my head go?
      Margaret: We all have our theories.

    • Becker (to Reggie): I don't set people up. They get married for fifty years and one of them dies, then suddenly it's your fault.

    • Reggie: So, who was that guy?
      Becker: He's a friend of mine from medical school. He's a cardiologist.
      Reggie: Oh, so he's not like you, he's a real doctor.

    • Reggie: I wonder who that guy is over there with Becker?
      Jake: Uh, oh, it's mating season again.
      Reggie: Good, because he's cute.
