    • Lynda: What the hell do you mean, no? What do you mean?
      Spike: We're bringing a good man down because of some stuff that's none of our business; and he's a friend.
      Lynda: It's not as simple as that.
      Spike: Actually, it is. He's a good headmaster. The very least we've done, is shoot him in the foot. Because of us, tomorrow, the world is a slightly less good place. And for this we get payed?
      Lynda: If I hold back a story because I think its not in the public interest, next thing we'll be inventing the news. It matters that doesn't happen. I did right.
      Spike: Did you do good?
      Lynda: Yes.
      Spike: No.

    • Lynda: Ugly day.
      Spike: Yeah.
      Lynda: Did I do the right thing?
      Spike: No.

    • Spike: When did you get it on my damned wrist?
      Lynda: You think that's clever? Check your underwear.
      Spike: Ooo.
      Lynda: I did right?
      Spike: Yeah, you did good.

    • Lynda: I have never sunk so low. Take me now, Lord; death would be a promotion.

    • Lynda: Meeting over, we're not touching this.
      Colin: I can't belive you said that.
      (Colin's Strokematic goes berserk)
      Strokematic: I bet Lynda really fancies you.
      Colin: Oh hell.
      Strokematic: I bet Julie's crazy about you. Wow, you're really popular.

    • Lynda: Maybe you guys could take this seriously?
      Frazz: Yeah, maybe we could. I mean, especially since the paper wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Winters.
      Julie: It was Sullivan and Kerr that set us up.
      Spike: Yeah, Winters too, you know that.
      Frazz: And some of us sitting around this table were heading exactly nowhere before the Junior Gazette. Spike, for instance.
      Spike: Yeah, Frazz for example.
      Frazz: Yeah those two.
      Spike: Scum!
      Frazz: Slime.
      Spike: Hey, have you met his wife?
      Frazz: My tongue was down to my knees!
      Julie: Oh, you are slime.
      Spike: I'm slime; he's scum.

    • Lynda: Can't you do anything without asking first?
      (Janet presses her Strokematic)
      Strokematic: Lynda's day will come.

    • Spike: You haven't got me a present?
      Lynda: It's the thought that counts.
      Spike: You didn't think!
      Lynda: I didn't get you a present. See? It counts.

    • Spike: You know, I woke up with a good feeling about today, boss.
      Lynda: That happens sometimes. It's just nature's cruel way of getting you out of bed.
      Spike: I woke up just knowing that you would remember my birthday.
      Lynda: Of course I do, but it was ages ago, wasn't it?
      Spike: Yes Lynda, quite a while.
      Lynda: Right.
      Spike: Almost exactly a while, in fact.
      Lynda: Today? Oh... well, how was I supposed to remember it was today? It's been a year!

    • Spike: Surprised to see me so happy?
      Lynda: Well, we're still dating.
      Spike: That's not why I'm happy.
      Lynda: That's why I'm surprised.
