    • QUOTES (6)

      • Wally: "Princess Liella, I have come to get you out of here."
        Ginger: "You mean run away?"
        Wally: "No, just retreat."
        Ginger: "What's the difference?"
        Wally: "Retreat sounds better."
        Ginger: "Retreat? Never! She stamps her foot defiantly." Oops. Oh, that was a stage direction, wasn't it?
        Wally: Oh, boy.
        Ginger: "Oh, boy?" Where does it say that?

      • Aggie: See this? It's been here three-and-a-half years. It'll cost us, oh, maybe $25, $30 to have an electrician come in and fix it.
        Skip: Uh-huh.
        Aggie: This hole in the wall -- it's been here five years. Ever since Buddy tried to throw a punch at a human organizer. You haven't been here when it's raining, but when it does, oh, let me tell you, you need an umbrella to get from here to there.
        Skip: What's your point, though?
        Aggie: My point is, we haven't had the money to fix these things, and... you just spent $300 ON A HOOKER, AND NOBODY EVEN HAD A GOOD TIME!

      • Sheree: Listen, this is really hard for me, and I hope you don't take this wrong, but she can't have the job. I'm sorry.
        Skip: But I just hired her. You want me to fire her?
        Sheree: I don't want you to fire someone! That's so cruel! She just can't have the job.

      • Brooks: I thought I heard my name. Was there a call for me?
        Ginger: There was a call, but I lost it. Some guy who sounded like Darth Vader.
        Brooks: That was my wife.

      • Skip: Actually, it's not funny at all. It's very serious and amazingly sensitive.
        Andrea: We're talking about Marty, right? Marty Fenneman.
        Skip: Okay! So maybe it's not the best script I've ever read. But it's surprisingly... not awful.
        Andrea: Oh, well, aren't you glad you read it? Now you can give Marty the good news. Hey, Marty, guess what? Your script didn't make me throw up.

      • Brooks: I know how Roland feels. Before I met Bebe, I dated a woman who used to stand up in front of a lot of men and take off her clothes to music.
        Andrea: You dated a stripper?
        Brooks: No.
