      • Diane: Oh Sam, it's never too early to start thinking of name for our children.
        Sam: It is if you're thinking about the name Emil.
        Diane: What's wrong with Emil?
        Sam: A meal is something you eat. It's not something you name your kid. Why don't you just name him Socrates after me?

      • Sam: I'm going to forbid somebody something. Norm, I forbid you to leave that stool.
        Norm: Sorry Sam, nature calls.
        Sam: You go and you're cut off.
        Norm: Whatever you say Pop.

      • Sam: The point is you've got to get to know each other better if you're going to take a big step like this. You gotta get past this early infatuation and get to the point where you're sick and tired of each other then you're ready for marriage.

      • Sam: Look at Diane and me, we waited five years to get married. If it were up to me we'd wait another five.

      • Sam: What kind of ice cream did you get?

      • Woody: Sam, the beer distributor is on the phone.
        Sam: tell him I'll call back.
        Norm: Sammy hey hey. Where are your priorities?

      • Sam: (about Joyce) Wow a Pantusso attending college. A Pantusso pronouncing college.

      • Cliff: Eh Doc, I didn't know you were a fellow linkster. So, some day when you feel you're good enough I'll take you down to my private Country Club for a little mono a mono. Heh Normy, remember I took you down?
        Norm: Had a great time, we got three holes in one and a birdie at the windmill.

        Carla: No he's a floon?.
        Joyce: Who is that?
        Cliff: Nobody knows.

      • Carla: I have dibs on cutting off her hair when she goes to sleep.
        Diane: Yeah, and if we can get our hands on a laser we'll try cutting Carla's!

      • Title: The Godfather Part III
        When this episode was written, there were only 2 Godfather films, so they called this episode The Godfather Part III. Of course in 1990 the film "The Godfather Part III" came out(which earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination.)
