  • Two separate dates become one and the beginnings of love for Tony

    Both Angela and Tony have separate dates for the night but when Angela's date seems to bail on her Tony stays to give her company while the already paid for caterer prepares his meal for them. By the end of it all the two end up having a great time together even laughing about past embarrassing moments in their lives. Then Angela's date finally arrives and Angela learns he's nowhere near as fun as Tony and Tony begins to wonder if he should attempt to date her by filling up a couple of glasses of wine after Angela's date has left. He thinks better of it though and pours the wine down the sink. You could tell right there that Tony was falling for Angela. The seeds of love are being sewed. :)moreless

    • Tony: (on the phone) Tonya, I'm out of here in 45 minutes, give or take an orange duck. Look, all I got to do is give the old lady a sponge bath and a Fig Newton and I'm yours. (Gets hung up on). Hello ? Hello ? (look at receiver). I wonder which part she didn't believe.

    • Angela: I felt like Scarlett O'Hara when I made my grand entrance, and there… at the top of this long staircase, and there was Greg, waiting for me down at the bottom, and then the heel of my shoe caught in the hem of my dress and I bounced all the way down the stairs.
      Tony: (laughing) You didn't.
      Angela: I did… I did, but my gown didn't make it. I landed at the… at the bottom in my slip and my wrist corsage.

      Angela: He was like Tom Selleck, but good-looking.

    • Angela: Have an hors d'oeuvre.

    • Angela: It's so quiet around here… without the kids.
      Tony: Yeah, like, a whole meal without the kids.

      Tony: I'm not dallying. You're dallying. Could you speed this up a little bit?

      Angela: Right.

      Mona: Great, then have a nice, little romantic dinner at home. A little candlelight, a little wine. Be a homebody.
      Angela: That sounds like old-fashioned sexist talk.
      Mona: Mm? And what is wrong with old-fashioned sex? If they come up with something better, will you let me know?

    • Mona: I've always wanted to camp out in the great outdoors, with the rustle of trees and the twinkling of stars and the babbling of brooks and the bats and the bears and the… creepy crawly things. Hey, maybe we could camp out at the Waldorf.
      Tony: I thought you were going to get away from it all.
      Mona: Listen, I'm going camping with an 11-year-old and a 7-year-old. You are getting away from it all. I'm taking it with me.
