    • [the gang took Frasier on a snipe hunt; he returns and wants them to go out again; Diane takes him into the office]
      Diane: There's no such thing as a snipe hunt. They played a childish prank on you.
      Frasier: I know that.
      Diane: What?
      Frasier: Good Lord, Diane. A man does not crouch in the woods for two hours without having a revelation or two.
      Diane: So this is part of a plan and I unwittingly helped you.
      Frasier: Yes.
      Diane: Frasier, how devious. But, why didn't you tell me?
      Frasier: Well, I couldn't trust you; you'd have thought it was too cruel.
      Diane: Oh, are you kidding? I would've helped. Frasier, this is so unlike you.
      Frasier: No, but it's what guys do, darling… we screw each other to the wall. Boy, it's great to be one of the gang, I'll tell you.

    • Sam: What's new, Normie?
