    • QUOTES (14)

      • Rebecca: I was taught to win, to strive, to achieve. I was taught to never ever settle.
        Sam: How do you explain working in this bar for the past three years?
        Rebecca: Has it been that long?

      • Rebecca: You didn't tell your stupid friends about this, did you?!
        Sam: Oh please, give me some credit, will ya?!
        Rebecca: You told them!

      • Sam: Oh good God. Woody sleeps with his eyes open.
        Carla: That is scary but it does explain a lot.

      • Cliff: You're not going to try to put [Rebecca] to sleep with a warm cup of milk, are ya?
        Sam: Excuse me Cliff, but have you slept with over 1,000 women?
        Cliff: Put a low flame under it, Woody. Stop just before it makes a skim.

      • Carla: Yeah Woody would you cover for me too?
        Woody: Where you going?
        Carla: Home. I just remembered I left something turned on.
        Woody: What?
        Carla: Me.

      • Norm: Shrinks get all the great scam, huh?
        Cliff: You ought to get an earful of a mailman's day, pal.
        Norm: Yeah I do, Cliff.

      • Carla: What's so funny?
        Sam: I'm sorry. I can't tell ya. It's not something a man can tell a woman. It's something that a man can only tell a whole crowd of people.

      • Lilith: Honey, you're the love of my life and even I don't have erotic dreams about you.

      • Rebecca: Oh Frasier, Lilith excuse me. I know you're probably on your way somewhere.
        Lilith: Yes, we are.
        Frasier: But when aren't we?
        Rebecca: It's just that I have this really bad problem. It's getting so bad that I can't even sleep at night.
        Frasier: Well I'm sorry Rebecca, we do have this important lunch.
        Rebecca: You see I've been having these erotic dreams.
        Frasier: Well lunch be damned! our friend is in need.

      • Lilith: Frasier, don't use your gold card. I exceeded the limit this morning buying biodegradable diapers. They're not cheap. They're not pretty but they'll disintegrate in 50 years.
        Frasier: She loves her earth.

      • Right after Rebecca's dream
        Sam: Good morning boss.
        Rebecca: You shut your fat face right now!

      • Sam: So this is your apartment?
        Rebecca: Yes Sam, you've been here before.
        Sam: Yeah but never after our first date.

      • Cliff: You know it's quite remarkable. To float something as heavy as a wedge of lime, beer must have quite a high buoyancy factor.
        Carla: So do your loafers.

      • Norm: Call me old-fashioned Cliff, but the only thing I like floating in my beer is my liver.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title refers to a song in Don Quixote, "The Impossible Dream", based on Miguel Cervante's famous novel about a goodhearted but foolish knight errant.
