      • Pete: I'm not mad at you, I'm mad at me. Berg, I'm gonna be 25 and I don't even know where my life is. And the one good thing I had, I messed up. When my dad was my age, he had a house, he had a wife, he had me! I mean, what do I have?
        Berg: You have the ability to suck the life out of an evening!

        Bill: Tell him to shut up.

      • Berg: Hey, why don't you drop me off when you take Pete to class?
        Sharon: What? I'm taking Pete to class?
        Berg: That's perfect. Let us be off.

      • Sharon: Look, if I close this deal today, I'm the commissioner of 500 gallons of toxic cleaner I'm selling to some oil rig. So, I can enjoy a weekend at the Cape while killing off all sea life between here and Guam. Ohh, I hate myself!
        Pete: Yeah, but you love your Beamer.
        Sharon: Love it!

      • Berg: Who poured you a double mocha grumpy this morning?

      • Berg: I didn't want you blaming me for screwing up the rest of your life, so I went over there to get you two back together!
