Quote from An Old-Fashioned Wedding

Norm: I wonder how Lilith is doing out there.
Lilith: [o.s.] And this time, just the women yodel.


Quote from An Old-Fashioned Wedding

Lilith: Quick. I need a blindfold and three sharp cleavers.
Rebecca: Lilith, you don't need that. The wedding's about to begin.
Lilith: Like hell. Not before my big finish.

Quote from The Beer Is Always Greener

Kelly: Excuse me. I'm just not sure how this applies to us.
Lilith: Your religious differences are extremely inconsequential. One is reminded of Gulliver's Travels in which two countries warred over which side of an egg gets cracked: The narrow end or the rounded end.
Kelly: Well, that's ridiculous. Of course it's the rounded end.
Woody: Oh, Kelly, I don't even know who you are anymore!

Quote from The Girl in the Plastic Bubble

Frasier: Well, then where are you going to live? All right, let me guess. Don't tell me! You're going to move in with your boyfriend, Dr. Pascal!
Lilith: That's right, Frasier, I am.
Frasier: What's so great about this Pascal guy anyway, huh? I mean, the man is obviously a crackpot. All he's noted for is inventing this ridiculous bubble underground.
Lilith: It's called an Eco-pod, Frasier. A self-contained subterranean environment which will serve as a prototype for an eventual space station. Similar to the Biosphere, only on a much more ambitious scale.
Frasier: To be inhabited by moles and gophers, no doubt.
Lilith: Yes, it will house a variety of animal species. And, for the first year, two human subjects as well.
Frasier: Oh, really? And where in the world do you expect to find... Oh, no!
Lilith: Yes, Frasier, I'm off to live in the Eco-pod.
Frasier: Oh, no!
Lilith: It's a noble experiment. I'm a pioneer. The research we are going to do is going to aid all of humanity.
Frasier: This is the stupidest day I've ever had.

Quote from Rat Girl

Lilith: Frasier. Frasier, I owe you an apology. I haven't been myself the past couple of days.
Frasier: No, darling. l, I trivialized your grief. A husband should be supportive. But, please help me. Help me. Meet me halfway. Why were you carrying a moribund rodent in your evening bag?
Lilith: I wasn't going to take him on our date. But I knew if I left him at the lab, they'd have given him to the undergraduates to dissect. I couldn't let that happen to Whitey. I just wanted to give him a decent burial.
Frasier: I'm, I'm so sorry. How could I have been so insensitive?
Lilith: Of course, I overreacted. But I think I know why. I was confronted for the first time with the death of someone close to me.
Frasier: I understand, dear. It's what we call a crisis.
Lilith: I know what we call it, Frasier. The upshot is I've never been more acutely aware of how precious and fragile life is for each of us.

Quote from Dinner at Eight-ish

Frasier: What is that heavenly aroma coming from the kitchen?
Lilith: Dinner.
Frasier: Oh, yes, of course, dinner. Well, I'm sorry I'm late, by the way. I got...
Lilith: No explanation is necessary. I know you far too well to have expected you to be on time tonight.
Frasier: Oh, right. Why is that?
Lilith: Because I've learned that a certain self-centered insensitivity is a fundamental part of your psychological makeup. And it only endears you to me.
Frasier: I'm so glad you shared that with me.

Quote from The Gift of the Woodi

Lilith: You look wonderful, Rebecca.
Rebecca: Thank you.
Carla: Can you breathe in that thing?
Rebecca: I'm a little constricted.
Lilith: Perhaps it's the tight collar.
Rebecca: Or the ace bandage strapped around my breasts.
Lilith: Well, they interfered with the line of your jacket.
Rebecca: What do you think, Carla?
Carla: Well, turn around. [Rebecca turns around] Bind her butt, too.
