Quote from King of the Hill

Carla: Yes, I did! First time in an airplane. It was on my honeymoon with Nick. We're going to New York - short flight, no problem, right? Well, suddenly, the plane hits turbulence, right? Me and Nick were thrown all around that bathroom. I haven't flown since.

Carla: [screams] Oh, the dead!
Frasier: No, no, Carla, Carla, that's Lilith! Granted, she could use a little sun.
Quote from Crash of the Titans
John: Carla, it's the first of the month. Where's my rent check for the poolroom and the bathrooms?
Carla: Here you are. Buy yourself a melon in case you misplace your head.
John: Thank you. Tell me, Carla, clinically speaking, are you considered a dwarf or a midget?
Carla: Say, is that your head or is your neck blowing a bubble?
John: Somebody phone the authorities in Paris. A gargoyle has just fallen off Notre Dame and is now taking drink orders.
Carla: You know, two heads like that would make a perfectly good butt.
Carla: Bullet head.
Carla: Hatchet face.
John: Well, must be off. Till next month, then.
Carla: He's good people.
Quote from The Beer Is Always Greener
Norm: Hey, hey, hey, hey, Carla, let me get this straight. You're really not going back to Cheers?

Quote from Battle of the Exes
Carla: Look. You always claim you know the answers to everything. Well, I'm calling your bluff. I am going to give you a chance to handle my problem. I give you 30 seconds. If you blow it, I'm sending you back out there and your face stays here.
Diane: Fair enough.
Carla: My ex-husband is getting remarried tonight. Here's the invite.
Diane: How terrible for you. I understand completely. You've never really stopped loving him. I can see this invitation is soaked with your tears.
Carla: That's my spit. I don't love that rat and I never did. Sure, there were little things I loved about him, like the way he flexed his tattoo. The way the hair grew in his ears. The way he drooled in bed.
Quote from Norman's Conquest
Cliff: What a pathetic display. I'm ashamed God made me a man.
