      Jamie: Do you really think he isn't?

    • Lillian: Oh, wow, this is really exciting, it's like an old Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney movie.
      Buddy: Yeah, maybe we can rent a barn and put on a cow?
      Walter: Better yet Lembeck, why don't you rent a padded cell, and put on a straight jacket.

    • Jamie: You know I think maybe you could be Adam's lovely assistant tonight, I'll just work in the ticket booth.

    • Sarah: It's not the end of the world Adam?
      Buddy: The show will go on Adam, I'm gonna direct this show?
      Sarah: I lied? It is the end of the world.

    • Adam: Well, that's too bad Sarah, see I was going to let you be my lovely assistant and wear a beautiful costume.

      Adam: I don't know why don't you take off your mask and we'll find out.

    • Buddy: They're throwing a fund raising variety show and your invited?
