      • Cliff: In order to pay my way through medical school I've taken a job as a dancer at Wedgewood. And I hope it doesn't make a difference in our relationship.
        Blair: When were you going to tell me Cliff? When I introduced you to one of my mother's friends and she said "Why Doctor Love, I didn't recognize you with your clothes on".

      • Jo: Alright Blair, what's the catch? Cliff is, is smart, he's funny, he's nice... he's not your type at all.
        Blair: What's that supposed to mean?
        Jo: He's not rich. He doesn't even have a car.
        Blair: Isn't it cute?! He rides the bus.

      • Cliff: Bye Monkey.
        Jo: I can't believe it. A man just called Blair Warner a monkey?
        Natalie: Not bunny. Not kitten. Monkey.
        Tootie: Look! Blair's blushing!
        Natalie: Oh Tootie, you're hallucinating, Blair nev- no she's right, she's bright red, come look, Blair's blushing!

      • Natalie: Aha! So that's why we can't go.
        Tootie: Why not?
        Jo: Because you're underage.
        Tootie: So what?
        Natalie: Tootie, it's a male strip joint. We could see things there that could trigger hormones we never knew we had.

      • Tootie: Come on Jo, where are you guys taking Mrs. Garrett?
        Natalie: Give us a hint! Just a teeny-weeny hint.
        Jo: OK... it's a place.
        Natalie: Could you make it just a little less "weeny".
