      • Jennifer: (to Bailey) If you can't handle Herb, Les and the Big Guy, who in this world can you handle?

      • Dr. Monroe: My, uh, studies establish without a shadow of a doubt, that children are, by adult standards, insane. And more than a little immature!
        Johnny: And that's bad?
        Dr. Monroe: Well, sure.
        Johnny: Well, so what should we do about it?
        Dr. Monroe: Round the little guttersnipes up.

      • Bailey: Jennifer, if you don't mind, I think I'm gonna cry.
        Jennifer: Bailey, women who want to be broadcast producers do not cry in public.
