    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Emma: I don't know why you insist on Alpha-getti. You won't even eat the E's.
        Oscar: Oh, everybody knows you don't eat the E's!
        Emma: Then why are they in there?
        Oscar: Because they're in the alphabet! You'd know this, if your memory wasn't going.
        Emma: I wish my memory was going. Then it would be like this conversation never happened.

      • Brent: I wanted to write "Lacey is a cow" but I couldn't find a w.
        Lacey: You don't have to do that. I took down the "Brent is an ass" sign.
        Wanda (disappointed): Ohh!
        Brent (to Lacey): I can't remember, were there any w's in there?

      • Wanda: Don't bother checking it; it's right. Another option would be, my thighs are hot for goat felons.
        Brent: My thighs are hot for goat felons? Geez, why are you working here? With your knowledge to instantly rearrange letters you could... no you're right, there is no practical application.

      • Wanda: I just saw Karen downtown, we were talking about Hank.
        Brent: Wait a minute, you were just downtown? Who was watching the store?
        Wanda: I dunno.
        Brent: Well, what if someone comes in?
        Wanda: So you leave money on the counter. It's not like anyone important's coming in.
        (in the gas station)
        Pamela Wallin: Hello? I'm Pamela Wallin. I'm the Consul General to New York. I used to be on TV. I have a platinum card. Is anyone here?

      • Karen: Do you have any fishing magazines? You know, pictures of guys... fishing?

      • Lacey: This place is deader than --
        Wanda: Quasimodo? Pavlov's dog? Chief bell tester down at the big bell factory -- after he died?

      • Oscar: Her memory's going.
        Emma: I remember. You want Alpha-getti.
        Oscar: If you remember, why did you bring home Dino-ghetti ?
        Emma: What difference does it make ?
        Oscar: You can't spell with dinosaurs!

      • Oscar: There's nothing wrong with my memory. You think I'm not on the ball, but I'm on the ball. I'll tell you when I get off the ball -- which is never.

      • Brent: Plus, I was careful to choose a slogan where the letters couldn't be rearranged to spell anything embarrassing.
        Wanda: What slogan ?
        Brent: Come for the oil change. Stay for the grease.
        Wanda: Choose Glenn Frey for a menage a trois.

      • Brent: Man, is it busy. I've been hearing more bells than ....
        Wanda: Quasimodo, Pavlov's dog, the chief bell-tester down at the big bell factory?
        Brent: What was the first one you said there -- Quomidoso? Let's go with that.

      • Emma: Don't fly off the handle.
        Oscar: I'm not off the handle. I'm still on the handle. I'll tell you when I come off the handle -- or the ball.

      • Emma: You've gone too far. You should apologize.
        Brent: Me? What about you?
        Emma: I have to live with the guy, now apologize. You're making him paranoid.
        Brent: Making him paranoid? This is the guy that thinks the GST was brought in as a personal attack against him.
