Mary: Why is he so concerned about what he's going to wear?
Murray: Well, when you're Ted Baxter, you gotta hope that your clothes at least look intelligent.
Mary: Ted, aren't you going to the meeting?
Murray: Is the Pope Catholic?
Ted: I'm sure he is. (thinks for a moment)I don't think the last one was, though.
Ted: (To Lou) Why are you giving a 50-dollar-a-week raise to someone who told me to shut up on the air?
Lou: It's all I could afford, Ted.
