    • QUOTES (10)

      • Del: Florence Henderson had an eight by ten photo with her?
        Annie: No, I did. I was going to bring the poster, but I though that would be too pushy.

      • Del: (to Caroline after she turns on the TV for her cat) You're turning the TV on for the cat?
        Caroline: Well, you don't expect her to turn it on herself.
        Annie: Wow, it must be early, 'cause that actually made sense.

      • Caroline: Annie, you've been up at five AM before.
        Annie: No, I have stayed up 'til five AM, I've never gotten up at five AM.

      • Shelly: (to Richard) I know I'm not supposed to bother you while you're at work, but I just got the greatest news, and I was right down the street at my physical therapist's office. (holds up her left hand) He said my finger is perfectly healed.
        Caroline: Shelly, I thought you hurt your right hand.
        Shelly: I did. I hurt my right hand when I fell, but I hurt my left hand on the equipment at the physical therapist's office

      • Caroline: (after openning the door) Shelly! Richard, look who's here. It's Shelly.
        Shelly: Hi, boyfriend's boss. (she hugs Caroline) Happy almost-Thanksgiving.
        Annie: Del, cover me, 'cause I'm going to try to get out of here without getting hugged.

      • (About helping put the Caroline ballon up)
        Caroline: And hey, Richard, there's one more rope left.
        Richard: Only if it's long enough to go around my neck.
        Caroline: So that's a no, huh?
        Ricahrd: No, it's a sarcastic no.

      • Caroline: Annie, there's a couple more ropes. You want to come with us?
        Annie: Really? Okay, that sounds like fun. What time?
        Caroline: Five AM.
        Annie: Oh, I'd love to, but I've got that thing with sleeping.

      • (About the Caroline ballon)
        Caroline: Richard, this is important to me, and it's not just a big ego thing. In tenth grade, I was in the marching band. Second chair saxophone.
        Richard: Oh great, childhood story.
        Annie: Hey, I love Tales of the Midwest. Is there a cow in this one?

      • Annie: Do Fritos count as a side dish?

      • Annie: Thanksgiving sucks.
        Caroline: (holding up the turkey) Well, I believe there are about twenty million of his friends that might agree with you.
