      • Lou: (to Bess, after he comes over to babysit for Mary) Do anything you want, kid. Just don't play with matches.

      • Phyllis: (telling Mary about the marriage conference she is planning to attend) Not that Lars and I have any problems. But if things could be better, why shouldn't he?

      • Phyllis: (disdainfully eying an unkempt Rhoda, who is standing in Mary's doorway in her robe) Yes, well...uh...I always said looks aren't important when you have good clothing sense.
        Rhoda: Phyllis, I'd like to tell you something.
        Phyllis: What?
        Rhoda: It is so hard for me to tell you this.
        Phyllis: What is it, Rhoda? You can tell me.
        Rhoda: (leans over and kisses Phyllis on the cheek) I'm extremely contagious.

      • Mary: You know, Rhoda, you could get yourself much sicker going out tonight.
        Rhoda: Yeah...
        Mary: Did you tell your date you have a temperature?
        Rhoda: I would have, Mare. However, I make it a rule never to discuss flu symptoms with a six-foot-one Yale grad with dark, curly hair.
        Mary: You could give him your cold.
        Rhoda: Uh-huh. (smiling) If I play my cards right!
