  • Quotes

    • Steve: At the bank we have a little saying. If you wanna save money, save money.
      Al: Thank you Steve, you're so much wiser than all the other tellers I've met. All except the automated ones.

    • Steve: Hi, Al. Glad I caught you before you left for work. I need a ride home tonight.
      Al: Why can't Marcy take you? Saddle in the shop?
      Steve: Marcy needs the car tonight for her women's group meeting.
      Al: What do they do? All pile in and look for man to run over?
      Peggy: Room for one more?

    • Lisa: No! Look, you don't seem to understand me. I want something that goes with this dress.
      Al: A bubbling cauldron?
      Lisa: You've got a lot of nerve.
      Al: I need it to get this close to your feet.

    • Peggy: Oh, another fishing catalog. What am I looking at, Al? The apron that says, "He catches 'em, I cook 'em, he eats 'em, I love him"?
      Al: Nah, you'd wear it, but you wouldn't mean it. No, I was talking about the five and a half foot meteor-graphite bait casting rod, with the high-speed star drag level wind reel.
      Peggy: (with mock excitement) Yippee skip! And a mere 275 dollars. Oh Al, let's buy it. We can do without food and heat for a year.
      Al: (surprised) You wouldn't mind?
