        Ray Vecchio: Not in a million years.

      • Wanda: We're on to you, Miss.
        Tiffany: Totally.
        Wanda: We see the way you're always opening doors for women.
        Tiffany: And the way you're like incredibly tall.
        Wanda: And polite.
        Tiffany: Totally. And we hear the way you talk.
        Wanda: For sure. You know you can't fool us. We should have known it right from the start.
        Tiffany: You're... a Canadian.
        Benton Fraser: Oh. Do you think we could keep this between us?

      • Vecchio: You know, Benny, you weren't a bad-looking woman.
        Fraser: Thank you, Ray.
        Vecchio: Course, you weren't exactly my type either.
        Fraser: Well, what exactly is your type, Ray?
        Vecchio: I like a woman who is kind and honest with a good sense of humor.
        Fraser: What? And I don't have those qualities?
        Vecchio: No, no, you do, I just like a woman who is, you know, a woman.
        Fraser: That's, that's picky Ray.

      • Benton Fraser: (Dressed as a woman and insisting Ray open doors for him.) Ray, manners.
        Ray Vecchio: You know, Benny, there's a limit.
        Benton Fraser: A limit? To good etiquette? I think not, Ray.
        Ray Vecchio: Just get in the car before I beat you with your purse.

      • Fraser: Let me tell you something, Ray, I think that the person who invented pantyhose should be brought up on charges of cruelty, sadism and reckless endangerment. They pinch in the most inappropriate places.
        Vecchio: Yeah, well most people who wear them don't have those places, Benny.

      • Benton Fraser: (To Melissa.) It takes seven fewer muscles to smile than it does to frown. Save your energy, you're going to need it in your child bearing years.

      • Ray Vecchio: Frank Nitti, Eliot Ness ... what is this, the garage sale of the Untouchables?

      • Benton Fraser: (To Melissa, in character as a woman.) Trust me, I have a profound insight to the workings of a young man's mind.

      • Ray Vecchio: So what you doing after work?
        Benton Fraser: Nothing with you.
        Ray Vecchio: (Laughs.) You're so sensitive.

      • Benton Fraser: (In character as a woman.) Whoa, you wouldn't hit a woman would you.

      • Benton Fraser: The girls aren't alone.
        Ray Vecchio: The Doppler effect?
        Benton Fraser: No, tracks size twelve running shoes.

      • Margaret Thatcher: (To Fraser.) I've seen you track a snowflake back to the cloud it came from, how hard can it be to find a bottle of whiskey!

      • Ray Vecchio: That's his nickname, the Whiskey King of the Windy City, ask anybody.
        Benton Fraser: Excuse me, what's the bartender's name?
        Bar Patron: Murph.

      • Ray Vecchio: What is this, the garage sale of the Untouchables?

        The Untouchables is a 1987 Brian De Palma film starring Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro and Sean Connery. Costner stars as Eliot Ness, the man who brought the mobster Al Capone to justice.

      • The title of this episode, Some Like it Red, is a play on the film Some like it Hot (1959) starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. The plot of the film sees the two male leads disguise themselves as women to hide themselves from the mob after they witness a hit.
