    • Burt: So, what about you? You make up your mind yet?

      Burt: About what Burt? You're living with a girl and dating a boy, so which one's your girlfriend, the boy or the girl?

    • Danny: Yeah! No good? I have a very exciting idea that could revolutionize travel!
      Burt: Revolutionize travel?
      Danny: Yeah. I'm in this department store yesterday, right? And they take my money and put it in a tube. And then they put the tube in a chute and, THWOCK! Back it comes with my change.
      Burt: So?
      Danny: So? So, I'm thinking, what about a tube like that…but BIGGER…carrying passengers from New York to L.A.THWWWWOOOCK!....You're there in seconds!

    • Danny: I'm thinking of becoming a banker.
      Burt: A banker?
      Danny: Yeah.
      Burt: Come on, Danny, what are you talking about, you don't just go out and be a banker.
      Danny: 'Course you can. Ya' rent a place, you hire a few tellers, you put up a sign that says bank, and the people come by and drop off their dough.
      Burt: Danny, first of all the government controls the banks, and secondly, you need a lot of money…to open a bank.
      Danny: I could borrow some.

    • Chester: It's night time, for God's sake!
      Dutch: What do you want to do, escape in broad daylight, you moron?

    • Jodie: (after learning Carol is pregnant) The father-to-be is not your standard model here, considering he's in love with a man and, up until a few months ago, was wearing his mother's clothes. But, hey, that's OK.

    • Mary: Mrs. Kadish, poor soul. Her son got married and moved away. She hasn't taken a bath in two years. She's afraid he'll call, she'll be in the tub.

    • Elaine: (to Danny) You better move it. That rabbi says he's gotta leave in ten minutes. He's got a bar mitzvah, two funerals, a bris, and tickets to "Pippin."

    • Mary: I always thought the girl you married would be a little like me. But Elaine is . . . I don't know.
      Danny: She's a pig.
      Mary: She's the girl you're gonna marry. You can't call her a pig, even if she is one.
