  • Quotes

    • Lou: (about Mary's interview) It'll be fun. You get your name in the paper. Your folks will read it. They'll be proud. Sure, have a nice time.
      Mary: Okay, thanks.
      Lou: Just don't say anything.

    • Ted: Say, Murray, just between us guys, if Mary were a man, would she be better looking than I am?
      Murray: Ted, if Mary were a duck, she'd be better looking than you are.

    • Rhoda: (about Mary refusing Mark's advances) It's good what you did. I think he was testing you, to find out what kind of a girl you are. Now he knows, and he'll respect you for it. And he'll call you as soon as he can.
      Mary: Do you really think so?
      Rhoda: No, but my mother does.

    • Ted: (to reporter in crowded restaurant) I sleep in the raw.
