Quote from Rebecca

Rebecca: I think it's time for me to pack it in.
Sam: Uh, you know, I don't think you're in any condition to drive, Miss Howe. Let me give you a lift home, all right?
Rebecca: I don't know. I've never been alone in a car with such a hairy guy. Are you sure you weren't in The Planet of The Apes? Can anybody else please take me home?
Anthony: There's room in our car. You can sit on my lap.
Annie: Darling, you're married now. You don't have a lap. [Rebecca laughs]
Sam: Come on. You think I'm so ugly? I'll let you get a bag and put it over my head, all right?
Rebecca: Just a minute. Let me get my bag. And yours.
Sam: I'm not crazy about the way that girl flirts.

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: They cut me from the team. They're going with the youth movement. They tried to trade me, but nobody wanted me. I'm sorry, Carla. I guess all the superstitions finally caught up with us.
Carla: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I can blame a lot of things on superstition, but you aren't the greatest goalie in the world, honey.
Eddie LeBec: What are you saying to me, Carla?
Carla: Well, you know, the end of last year you were losing it, and now you're older, and your reflexes are shot.
Eddie LeBec: Oh, thanks a lot. I'm feeling a lot better already.
Carla: And if that wasn't because of superstition, then maybe the twins aren't bad luck either. I mean, could it be possible that I'm just having twins because the eggs split? Whoa, whoa! And maybe your mother hates me because she's stupid. And Anthony hates you because he takes after his no-good rat-faced father. And all those things that we thought were bad luck had nothing to do with superstition. It was just life. Unfortunately, it happens to be my life. What the heck? I'm married and in love with a great guy. So, I guess that evens things up. No, it doesn't. But it makes life worth living. No, it doesn't. But it's something. So let's get on with it. What do you say, hubby?
Eddie LeBec: I say let's get on with the honeymoon, eh?
Carla: See you at 2:00 A.M. Somebody's got to work in this family. Hi. I'm Mrs. Eddie LeBec. What'll you have?

Quote from Frasier

Bandleader: And now as the hour draws late, it's time for the bride to throw the bouquet.
Carla: Okay, come on, come on, everybody. You all ready? Okay, heads up, you old maids.
Woody: Dr. Crane, a girl's supposed to catch the bouquet.
Frasier: Well, then the girls should have been a little bit quicker. [to Rebecca] Here, knock yourself out.

Quote from Norm

Norm: Men, you are looking at one sharp bargainer. Not only did I get Carla and Eddie eight sterling-silver place settings, but I also got Bruce to throw in matching weenie tongs and lemon zester.
Sam: That's great, man, except the wedding's been called off.
Norm: Ah. So what happened? Eddie freaked out about being a father?
Sam: No. Eddie's mom met Carla.
Norm: Hate at first sight.
Sam: Yeah, how'd you know?
Norm: Well, that's the "law" part of "mother-in-law," see.

Quote from Cliff

Frasier: So Eddie's not going to marry Carla because his mother doesn't approve.
Cliff: I tell you, it's pathetic to see a grown man so tied to his ma's apron strings.
Woody: Well, that reminds me, Mr. Clavin, you mother called and said she couldn't make it for dinner tonight.
Cliff: Oh, great. What am I supposed to do with that casserole, just throw it away?

Quote from Cliff

Rebecca: Mr. Malone, remember that reception you talked me into? Well, it seems that the bride is in my office and she's having a little problem with the groom. She wants him to die with festering boils.
Sam: It's just the usual prenuptial jitters. It'll be all right.
Rebecca: It will not be all right. I invited my boss, and he's really excited about this. Now, if Mr. Drake shows up here expecting a reception and there isn't a reception, I'm gonna have egg all over my face.
Cliff: Actually, uh, you know, most complexion experts swear by the old egg facial. It tightens one's pores. [off Rebecca's look] Although yours look pretty tight to me.

Quote from Woody

Woody: Sam. Father Berry at Carla's church said we gotta hurry because he's got two weddings planned after Carla's, a bake sale, a slide show of the Knights of Columbus' trip to the Holy Land, and a CYO hootenanny.
Sam: Thank you, Woody.
Woody: Sam?
Sam: Mmm?
Woody: I'm, uh... I'm thinking of becoming Catholic.
Sam: We'll talk about it later.

Quote from Sam

Rebecca: How's it going?
Sam: Pretty good, pretty good.
Rebecca: It better be, or my butt's in a sling.
Sam: Is there room for two in there?

Quote from Carla

Carla: [snapping pencils] Eddie's arm. His neck.
Sam: How's it going?
Norm: Oh, not too bad. I don't think we've broken anything vital yet.
Carla: Eddie's foot.
Sam: Sweetheart.
Carla: Eddie's femur.
Sam: Sit down. Hey. Stop, stop. Would you give the guy a break, please?
Carla: He had to break a mirror, right? He had to spill the salt. He had to thumb his nose to the Fates, and look what happened. They turned him into a wuss.
Sam: The important thing is that the wuss came back.
Carla: Does he have a note from his mommy?

Quote from Norm

Sam: Eddie. Eddie, Eddie. Wait a minute, man. Whoa. Where you going?
Eddie LeBec: I can't face her right now. I mean, even if I did change my mind and decide to stand up to Mama, Carla would never forgive me for the way I ran out. I mean, if I went in there right now, she'd tear my head off.
Norm: Come on, Eddie. I think you're underestimating Carla just a bit here.
Eddie LeBec: What, you don't think she'll be mad?
Norm: No, I don't think she'll stop at your head.

Quote from Woody

Woody: [on the phone] Father Berry? Listen, Sam can't talk right now, but, uh while I got you on the phone, can I ask you a question? Do you have to pay any membership dues to be a Catholic?

Quote from Norm

Cliff: They don't look too happy to me.
Norm: No. They do look married, though.

Quote from Rebecca

Sam: What's that ugly-looking thing?
Rebecca: It's not an ugly thing. It's a Wabby.
Sam: What's a Wabby, Webecca?
Rebecca: It's a "Women of Boston Business" award. I'm very proud of it. It happens to be very prestigious. Thousands of women have won it.
Sam: What's it doing out here? You trying to impress your boss?
Rebecca: I'm glad you reminded me. I'm completely forgot he was coming.
Sam: Yeah, sure you did. Hey, you know, every time Evan Drake's name gets mentioned you get a little red around the gills. Do you have a crush on him or something?
Rebecca: I beg your pardon. He happens to be a married man. Although not happily.
Sam: Oh, you do have a crush on him. How cute! "Oh, Evan, Evan. [kissing sounds]"

Quote from Norm

Norm: Great stuffed mushrooms, Cliffie. Try the Swedish meatballs. They're out of this world. Yeah. Ooh, try 'em together! Together!
Rebecca: Excuse me, gentlemen. Do you plan on leaving any hors d'oeuvres for latecomers?
Cliff: Hey, you snooze, you lose.
Norm: Ooh-ooh! Rumaki! Come on.

Quote from Woody

Bandleader: And now it's time for the traditional first dance, and we all know who's going to start it.
Woody: Holy cow, it isn't me, is it?

Quote from Sam

Sam: How about a cup of coffee, huh?
Rebecca: Why would I do that?
Sam: Well, because I've seen a lot of ladies hit the champagne in my time. One minute they're doing just fine. The next minute it kind of sneaks up on them and they're doing all sorts of wild and crazy... Why am I giving you coffee?

Quote from Rebecca

Sam: What are you looking at, pretty lady?
Rebecca: I'm looking at you.
Sam: Well, I'm looking back at you.
Rebecca: I think I'm beginning to see you in a whole new light.
Sam: Why don't you tell me what you see?
Rebecca: You have a really weird face. Your eyebrows are growing together like a big old ugly caterpillar. Oh, look, they're cutting the cake.

Quote from Sam

Carla: Who are we trying to kid here? We're living in the shadow of the curse we brought on ourselves. I can't go on with this.
Eddie LeBec: Come on, Carla.
Carla: No, no, no. I think maybe we should get an annulment.
Sam: Oh, would you two stop it?! I can't believe... This should be the happiest day of your lives, and all you've done is moan and groan all day long. I mean, come on. It's one thing to play along with this superstition stuff for, you know, for some fun, but you're letting it interfere with your happiness here. You two are wonderful. You got everything in your life to look forward to. Please, please, come on. Trust me. Nothing bad is going to happen. [when the phone rings, Sam puts his hand on the receiver to stop Woody answering it] You got my personal word on that. I mean, superstition, it's for the birds. Just go on with your normal life. Woody, do you mind? All right, fine. Go ahead. Answer it. It's probably just somebody who wants to, uh, know what time the bar closes.
Woody: [on the phone] We close at 2:00. Eddie, it's for you. Some guy from the Bruins.
Sam: Maybe, maybe you oughta...
Eddie LeBec: Probably just want to congratulate me on my wedding.
Sam: Yeah, right. That's it. That's it.

Quote from Sam

Sam: I want to talk to you a minute. Miss Howe, I think I can get this wedding back on track.
Rebecca: Thank God.
Sam: Yeah, but I have one little condition.
Rebecca: You pull this off and you can have anything you want.
Sam: Really?
Rebecca: Except that.
Sam: Actually, all I want to do is get rid of these stupid uniforms.
Rebecca: Mr. Malone, ever since you have worked here, you have done nothing but whine about these uniforms. Now, I put a great deal of thought into them and I happen to think they make a statement.
Sam: Oh, yeah. They say I'm a lima bean. All right. Fine, fine. If you insist on keeping these uniforms, then there'll be no wedding, no wedding reception, and you and Mr. Drake can spend an intimate evening watching 40 quarts of guacamole turn black.
Rebecca: Fine, fine. Get rid of the uniforms.
