      • Lynda: Spike, darling. You didn't tell me you were coming here tonight!
        Spike: What?
        Lynda: Are these all your friends? I've heard so much about you.
        Spike's friend: Well I ain't heard a thing about you, love.
        Lynda: He hasn't mentioned me? Oh, we go to the same dance class together, don't we darling.
        Spike's friend: Dance class?
        Lynda: He didn't mention that either? Oh, your so modest. You know, I think Spike's got a serious future in ballet.
        Spike: Ballet?!
        Lynda: But you're more interested in your poetry, aren't you, sweetheart.

      • Frazz: I've got it! All twelve star signs! What's yours, Lynda?
        Lynda: Hemoglobin.
        Frazz: Hemo... hemoglobin?
        Lynda: You got tarmac?
        Frazz: Tarmac?
        Sarah: How about zinc?
        Julie: Or helium?

        Spike: Miss Swanson? Hi. I'm your singing telegram.
        Miss Swanson: Singing telegram?
        Spike: Yep. Where can I park my axe?
        Miss Swanson: A singing telegram? From whom?
        Spike: Eh... Excuse me gentlemen, ladies (Closes the door) Miss Swanson, I'm lying. I'm not a singing telegram. I'm from the Junior Gazette, and I need an interview.
        Miss Swanson: What?
        Spike: I know you ought to have me thrown out of here but, well, I did go to all this trouble just to get past your people out there and well I think I deserve an award you know, for my effort. What do you say? Just a little interview? 10 minutes? Please?

      • Spike: What do we have, Frazz? We must have something.
        Frazz: Well, I've got a comb and I've got some chewing gum.
        Spike: Yeah, we could always try bribery.

      • (Seeing Spike and Frazz walking up)
        Lynda: That's all we need; 'The Three Stooges'.
        Sarah: There's only two of them.
        Lynda: You think they know that?

      • Spike: Can you believe this? We've been swept under the door by a bunch of total wimps, you know that? I mean, we're talking about guys who look like they're wearing glasses even with their glasses off.

      • Spike: You know it makes me so mad. She just thinks we're stupid. I mean, she just assumes we're stupid. How does she know we're stupid.
        Frazz: Maybe someone told her.
        Spike: You know what we're gonna do? We're gonna show her that neither of us is stupid. Well, except you. Come on.

      • Frazz: I think Lynda's gonna cut the horoscopes.
        Spike: Well you should've...
        Frazz: ...Seen it coming, yeah.

      • Guy: You must fancy her rotten.
        Spike: Who, Lynda? I'd drink her bathwater.

      • Lynda: Spike, I need you working. What's the sulk for?
        Spike: Who says I'm sulking?
        Lynda: If you're not sulking, then what's the problem?
        Spike: Who says there's a problem?
        Lynda: If there's not a problem, why don't you get out there and work?
        Spike: Who says I'm not going?
        Lynda: Then go!
        Spike: I'm gone.

      • Lynda: Who said I was going alone?
        Spike: What, you mean you're going with a girlfriend or something? Your brother? Sister? Mom? Dad? ... Dog?
        Julie: James Armstrong.
