  • Trivia

    • Goof: As Shirley steps up to confront Denny about the doll in her likeness, we see her from the back and left. At that cut, her lip movements don't match the words she says.

  • Quotes

    • Denny: (To Alan) What do you mean she's measuring you for trousers? Is that some kind of fetish? Would I like it?

    • Marlene: You missed your ten o'clock.
      Alan: Um, something came up.
      Marlene: Something was supposed to come up, at the closet, at ten o'clock.
      Alan: I've got a few minutes now if you'd like to go somewhere and... grab a bite.

    • (Referring to Jerry's legal problems and infatuation with a doll)
      Alan: I've got to get him help. My God, if you saw the way he hugged her.
      Denny: Is she cute?
      Alan: Denny, its a doll.
      Denny: Oh come on, don't tell me you've never gone to town with a doll?
      Alan: (Laughs) No, as a matter of fact. (pause) Have you?
      (Longer pause)
      Alan: Denny...
      Denny: Well, not just any doll. Well, I mean I'm not... ah, what's the word?
      Alan: Peculiar?
      Denny: But I suppose I've been with... a special doll.
      Alan: Would I like her?
      Denny: You want to meet her?

    • Marlene: Brad, did you hear? Denise is getting married.
      Brad: (to Denise) Really?
      Denise: I was going to tell you.
      Marlene: Sometimes it's easier to hear it from a third party.
      (Denise attempts to hit Marlene, but she ducks as Denise's arm flies past)
      Marlene: (emotionless) That could've hit me.

    • Marlene: Denise.
      Denise: Marlene.
      Marlene: I hear you're getting married.
      Denise: I am.
      Marlene: Congratulations. It must be a relief to have some financial security. Does Buzz know?
      Denise: Buzz?
      Marlene: Buzz Lightyear. Isn't that the nickname for the Ken-doll with benefits?
      Denise: Marlene, I'm finding it extremely difficult not to assault you right now.
      Marlene: (deadpan) Oh, I'm sorry. Am I being too familiar? I thought we were girlfriends. I was hoping the relationship wouldn't change when I made partner and you didn't but I guess it has. Oh well.

    • (After Melissa catches Marlene having sex with Alan)
      Marlene: If you like to watch... I'm okay with that.

    • (Melissa walks in on Alan and Marlene having sex in the photocopying room)
      Alan: We're developing pictures.
      Marlene: We're photography buffs.

    • Officer: (to Jerry) Mr Espenson, you were driving in the car pool lane. That lane's reserved for vehicles with two or more passengers. Sir, that is not a person in your passenger seat. (points to a plastic doll in the car)
