Diane: Maybe I can still catch him.
Sam: Fine. And while you're up there floating around, remember the day I said this: you are the nuttiest, the stupidest, the phoniest fruitcake I ever met.
Diane: You, Sam Malone, are the most arrogant, self-centered-
Sam: Shut up! Shut your fat mouth.
Diane: Make me.
Sam: Make you? My God, I'm gonna... I'm gonna bounce you off every wall in this office.
Diane: Try it, and you'll be walking funny tomorrow. Or should I say funnier?

Diane: You disgust me. I hate you.
Sam: Are you as turned on as I am?
Diane: More. [they kiss]

Quote from Norm

Norm: Diane, do you mind if I say something?
Diane: Of course not, Norman.
Norm: Sometimes a man and a woman are so afraid of being vulnerable to rejection that neither one of them will take the first step of admitting their true feelings.
Diane: Norman, that's beautiful.
Norm: I do have a romantic side, Diane. I know I make a lot of jokes about Vera, but the truth is if that woman ever packed her bags and left me, I don't know what I'd do... first.

Quote from Coach

Norm: What's wrong, Coach?
Coach: Oh, I didn't get the job in Venezuela. They hired another guy.
Cliff: Oh, jeez, what's the matter? They didn't like your Spanish?
Coach: No, no, the Spanish was fine. They didn't like my English.
Cliff: See, that's too bad, Coach. Sorry.
Coach: Well, que so what, so what.

 Sam Malone Quotes

Quote from I Will Gladly Pay You Tuesday

Diane: Sam, I know you to be a man of pride and principle, but strength is also to be found in the ability to bend. Witness the willow, nature's strongest tree.
Sam: No, I thought the oak was the strongest tree.
Diane: Only in furniture.
Sam: What about the saying "strong as the mighty oak"?
Diane: The oak can be felled by a single harsh wind under the right circumstances.
Sam: All right, but what about birch and mahogany? Now, those--
Diane: Would you shut up about the damn trees?
Sam: You brought them up.

Quote from The Proposal

Sam: You know, for the longest time, I kept pretending about you. I guess I was afraid to really admit my feelings. But from the very start, down deep inside, I have been crazy about you. Crazier about you than any other woman I've ever met. I mean, hell, I was crazy about you even when I hated you. [Diane laughs] What I'm trying to say is will you marry me?
Diane: No.
Sam: No?
Diane: No.
Sam: Are you serious?
Diane: I'm afraid I am.
Sam: Well... seems to me you have two choices. One, I can throw you in. Or two, you can jump in.
