Diane: Carla, I don't think you should be engaging in strenuous activity when you're with child.
Carla: If I didn't do things with child I'd never leave the house. The only thing I ever did without child resulted in one.
[after beating the Playboy girls in the softball game, Sam is in the pool room]
Diane: Sam, you are an attractive man. You have many friends, you have a lot going for you; but, you have one miserable character flaw.
Sam: Gee, I wonder if I could coax you into telling me what that is.
[the men in the bar are ogling the Playboy girls]
Diane: Oh, this is disgusting. What kind of culture do I live in where they are the ideal woman?
Coach: Well, gee, Diane. You've gotta admit: they are beautiful.
Diane: Coach, take away all their make-up, all their expensive haircuts and those bodies... and what have you got?
[Norm enters the bar]
Coach: What'll it be, Normy?
Norm: Just the usual, Coach. I'll have a trough of beer and a snorkel.
Diane: Sam, you wanted to beat them more than you wanted to bed them.
Sam: [realizing] Oh my God. I AM sick!
