    • Diane: In that case may I suggest you propose again. I assure you this time I will accept your proposal.
      Sam: Fine. I propose you step in front of a speeding bus. From now on I'm dedicating myself to life, liberty, and the pursuit of every woman in Boston except you.

    • Diane: Oh, Frasier, please tell me where Sam is. I have to talk with him.
      Frasier: Diane, in light of your disposal of him last night I think it's better he be left alone right now.
      Diane: That poor man. Can you imagine how he must feel?
      Frasier: Gee, I'll try.

    • Sam: I'm fine everybody. I just don't want to talk about that's all. (Whispers to Frasier) Can I talk to you just for a minute?

    • (Diane says no to Sam's proposal.)
      Sam: Seems to me you have two choices. One--I can throw you in, or two--you can jump in.

    • Norm: Woody, are you in pain, buddy?
      Woody: No, I was just thinkin'.
      Norm: Yeah, well, the first time's always the worst.

    • Cliff: Boy oh boy, I wouldn't mind being a barnacle on the rudder of Sam's sailboat. If you know what I mean?
      Carla: I'm sure you're be better lookin' but would you be happier?

    • Woody: Hi, Mr. Peterson. What's the story?
