  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Woody: Looks like Sammy got his walking papers. I know how he feels.
      Norm: Yeah I think we've all been there before, Woody.
      Cliff: Well it's never happened to me, so I guess I'll just have to imagine it.
      Norm: Cliffie, you actually have to go with someone before you can get dumped.

    • Sam: I know what you're trying to do here, Diane. How dumb do you think I am?
      Diane: I believe we're supposed to ask the questions. Janet, how dumb do you think Sam is?

    • Diane: Has Sam ever talked to your about his feeling toward Ms. Eldridge?
      Woody: Well I heard him say that he kinda likes her. But in my opinion you and Sam make a much better couple.
      Diane: Really?
      Woody: Yeah. You're my two favorite people in the whole world. Except for my parents.

    • (Diane enters the bar after she said she would never come back.)
      Carla: Hey, didn't you see the sign outside? We have the right to service to skinny ex-waitresses with bad dye jobs.
      Woody: Oh, Carla, couldn't we make an exception just this once?

    • Woody: How you feeling today, Mr. Peterson?
      Norm: Pour.
      Woody: I'm so sorry to hear that.
      Norm: No, I meant pour.

    • (Diane walks in wearing a flowery, yellow spring dress.)
      Carla: Well, if it isn't Rebecca of Skinnybrook Farm!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Carla: Well, if it isn't Rebecca of Skinnybrook Farm!
      Carla's making a reference to the Kate Douglas Wiggin novel Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, later turned into a play and a movie starring Mary Pickford (which was remade twice.)

    • Winston Churchill: ... we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields...
      Somehow, Woody had taped Winston Churchill's speech before the Commons on June 4, 1940.
