  • Quotes

    • Aggie:, uh, what I'm asking is that you don't cancel the show until he's had a chance to show you some of his marvellous proposals... 48 hours? And they say networks are cold and heartless.

    • Brooks: How'd things go at the network, Aggie?
      Aggie: They thought with Buddy gone, they were gonna be able to walk all over me. Well, I went right in there, and I said, "Look, there's no way we're going to keep doing The Dippy Duck Show unless you give us more money. In fact, I'm going to demand that you let me take it elsewhere."
      Andrea: You got us cancelled, didn't you.

    • Sheree: ...and then he saw me in this topless ice show, and that was, like, it.
      Skip: Uh, topless. [gulp] I've, uh, I've played a little hockey, uh--
      Sheree: Oh, well to tell you the truth, I can just barely stand up on the ice. But you don't exactly have to be Peggy Fleming if you're willing to skate with your shirt off.

    • Sheree: What was your name again?
      Skip: Uh, Skip Tarkenton.
      Sheree: Oh. Right. Oh, of course. Buddy just thought the world of you.

    • Brooks: Anyway, I went to Buddy, and asked him if I could borrow $7000 for the triple bypass surgery. He sat there, thought about it, and said, "Frank" -- you know how he liked to kid us pretending he didn't know our names -- "Frank," he said, "I really would like to do it, but there's this speedboat I got my eye on, and I'm going to have to say no." Of course, I didn't have the operation, which was just great, because it turned out that they mixed up my angiogram with somebody else's. So I'm here to thank Buddy for the fact that I didn't go through any of that unnecessary surgery.
      Sheree: Thank you, Frank.

    • Aggie: The Widow Winkler forgot to get a minister.
      Roland: What are we supposed to do?
      Andrea: I went to a funeral once where everyone told nice stories about the guy who died.
      Marty: This is Buddy Winkler we're talking about. We don't have a nice story between us.
