    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Stanley is eating bacon and eggs, while Geoff makes a wheatgrass shake)
        Stanley (to Geoff): Whipped lawn clippings for breakfast, why didn't I think of that? Oh, that's right, I'm not a rabbit!

      • Elaine: Yeah, Carlisle used to just be totally interested in what made people tick, you know. That's how we met; I was interesting, and he was interested.

      • Elaine: Sometimes when you choose an older partner...
        Geoff: Older lovers are from Mars, and younger lovers are from Venus.
        Elaine: Yeah, more like young lovers are from now, old lovers are from 'Not now, dear.'

      • (Stanley asks about Mr. and Mrs. Wainwright)
        Stanley: Did you uncover the secrets to their success?
        Geoff: Drugs. Lots and lots of drugs.
        Stanley: What do you mean?
        Geoff: Medicine cabinet.
        Stanley: You didn't!
        Geoff: It looks like Marilyn Monroe's stomach in there.

      • (looking at a glass of scotch)
        Carlisle: The whole world in a glass... so many subtleties.
        Geoff: A toast to subtleties.
        Elaine: It's been a long tim esince you paid attention to any of my subtleties.
        Carlisle: Waste of energy, paying attention to something that isn't there. That's one of my favourite things about you, dear; you're clear as crystal.

      • Geoff: You fell in love, gave up your practice to be together.
        Carlisle: She was mad as a cat, one flat-out beautiful girl. Well, the College frowns on these things, and uh, with the pregnancy, uh... they decided to relieve me of my practice.
        Stanley: Pregnancy?
        Elaine: Oh, I lost it.
        Stanley: I'm sorry.
        Elaine (to Carlisle): No, no, we still have each other, don't we, Honey?
        Carlisle: The sensible thing would have been to relieve me of you, and let me keep my practice.

      • (Geoff is crying)
        Geoff: A part of me... of me! is going to be missing.
        Stanley: It's okay. I'm probably going to lose my teeth.
        Geoff: Yeah, but I might lose my hair.
        Stanley: Yeah, that's going to be tough. (pause) I'm probably going to lose control of my bladder.
        (they both start to laugh)
