      • (Oliver's chair has disappeared from their table)
        Maitre d': Would you care to order dinner?
        Oliver
        : I'd like a chair!
        Maitre d': What, may I ask, did you do with the last one you had?
        Oliver
        : I didn't do anything with it! I just got up to dance!
        Maitre d'
        : With a chair?

      • Wanda: (to Oliver) Well, I never thought you'd get married. Why, you were the playboy of the Western world.
        Lisa: And now he's the hermit of Hootersville.

      • Judson: (to Oliver) Remember the speech you made the day that you quit the office? My dictating machine happened to be on. (plays recording)
        Oliver: I'm quitting! I'm getting away from the rat race. I wanna get out of the city. Away from the smog where the air is clear (fife begins playing "Yankee Doodle" and Oliver looks startled) A man can breathe. I wanna be a part of that great army of men: the American farmer! The backbone of our economy! Plant my seeds in the soil and watch them shoot up toward the sun and the sky. Grow wheat, corn...
        Judson
        : Heard enough?
        Oliver
        : Yeah. Uh, did I hear a fife playing there while--
        Judson
        : Oh, yes. I had a friend of mine orchestrate it. It seemed to call for a little musical background.

      • (Oliver tells Lisa about his offer to return to his old law firm) Lisa: I wouldn't live here for anything!
        Oliver
        :But you're the one who always wanted to move back here?
        Lisa
        : That was before I saw what New York does to you. It turns you from a Dr. Jerky into a Mr. Hive.
        Oliver: What are you talking--
        Lisa
        : Oliver, there are two yous: the New York you and the Hootersville you, and I prefer you when you're Dr. Jerky, which is the Hooterville you.

      • Judson: (with Lisa and Oliver at lunch) What shall we order?
        Lisa: (having heard enough about Oliver's past women) Well for starters, I'll have a sharp steak knife!
