    • (the gang watches Diane make a fool of herself on TV)
      Sam: What'd you think you were doin' up there?
      Diane: I didn't think it was a real show.
      Sam: Are you kidding me? I mean who would make up something that boring?
      Diane: Well, I thought you did. I thought it was a joke. I figured that you set it up to get back at me because of my psychology experiment.
      Sam: Wow, what a great joke. I wish we had thought of that.
      Woody: I can't think of it now.

    • (the gang continue to discuss the stranger in the bar)
      Sam: Aw, come on, man. Just 'cause he looks like a spy and acts like a spy doesn't mean he is a spy, does it?
      Norm: I think it pretty much does, Sam. You don't suppose this guy is with, like, the CIA or FBI or anything, do you?
      Cliff: Ah, could be.
      Sam: Alright, let's go over the four things we know about him: He's been here since we opened, he's not drinking, he's not waiting for a table upstairs... Actually, that's only three. Anybody else know anything?
      Diane: You're an idiot!
      Sam: That would be four, then.

    • (the gang is speculating about the stranger in the bar)
      Woody: Well, he's probably , uh, a writer or a poet or something.
      Diane: Oh, that's very good. What do you think he's writing, Woody?
      Woody: Well, I hope he's not writing about a boy and his dog who roam through the countryside doing good deeds and drinkin' beer.
      Diane: Why?
      Woody: 'Cause that's the story I'm writin'.

    • (Sam comes out of his office; Diane notices a strong smell)
      Diane: Good Lord, Sam. Have you been swimming laps in that cologne of yours?
      Sam: No. I just dropped the bottle all over the floor in there. Another two dollars and fifty cents down the drain.
      Diane: Ah, the big bottle.
