Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Sandy: It's about you and Elyse?
      Oz: You know? I mean, not that there's anything to know. Nothing happened. It almost did, but I, I couldn't go through with it.
      Sandy: Why not?
      Oz: Because I would've rather been at The Leafs game with somebody else.
      Sandy: But I don't get it. She's beautiful, she's smart, she doesn't have to pretend to like hockey like I do. What could you possibly not like about her?
      Oz: Yeah, now that you mention it. But, she's not you.
      Sandy: Can we try this again?

    • Toby: Leafs game tonight at Freddies?
      Oz: Yeah, playing the Penguins?
      Toby: Two days.
      Oz: OK.
      Toby: Bruins tonight.
      Oz: Ugh, Bruins! I'll be crying into my beer by the second period.
      Toby: No crying. We own them tonight.

    • Dev Clark: All I know is that's motive and opportunity.
      Toby: All we need is evidence.
      Dev Clark: Exactly. You're getting good at this.

    • Alvin Klein: (discussing Thomas Vallance) Well, he hid the results of the Jannex trials, he was at war with Brandt, he was sleeping with the guy's wife. How much more do we need?
      Toby: Proof.
      Alvin Klein: (laughs) Who brought him in here?
      Michelle: You did.
