Woody Quote #51
Diane: Let's start again. What I'm talking about is the meaning of money. What is it worth? It can't buy love, it can't buy friends, it can't buy happiness.
Woody: Well, you're right, and I already have all those things.
Diane: So, in fact, you have everything. And it wouldn't matter if you never got that money at all.
Woody: [laughs] Oh, you're serious. Oh, I'm sorry, Miss Chambers. You see, it's just that my family never had a lot of money and still my folks were always making sacrifices for us kids, especially my mom. I remember something she used to say to me, she'd say: "Woody, hold on to your dream. I lost mine, but I want yours to come true." It always made me sad to think of what Mom gave up for us.
Diane: What was your mom's dream?
Woody: To be a drummer in a power trio. Her big hero was Ginger Baker in Cream. Whenever we'd walk by the music store in town, she'd just stare and stare at the Ludwigs in the window. I knew even though she was standing in front of Keller's Music, that in her head she was up on some stage banging out the solo in "Toad."
Diane: It must have been tough to go back to breading cutlets.
Woody: Now she's gonna get those drums. And with heavy metal coming back, who knows what might happen.
Quote from Woody
Sam: Hey, Woody, you know, if you win this, that's gonna make three weeks straight you've been in the money.
Woody: Yeah, yeah, I guess I'm on a streak. You know, I've always been a lucky guy. Back home I won a haircut.
Norm: The heck kind of contest was that?
Woody: Well, it wasn't really a contest. It was just policy. See, if the barber nicks your ear, you get a free haircut.
Quote from Frasier
Diane: Frasier, I really don't think that would be a good idea at all.
Frasier: Of course. I understand. Oh, Diane. I've been putting off telling you something, but I feel I must now. You've been using the word "really" far too frequently. In fact, it's become really noticeable. It's really quite maddening, really.
Diane: Frasier, I know you're disappointed that I didn't accept your invitation, but I really-- I don't think that's any reason to get on my case.
Frasier: "Get on my case." What a charming bit of slang.
Diane: Frasier, nitpicking at my choice of the correct modern English does not make you any more attractive to me. If that's the purpose in your visits here, perhaps you should find another tavern in which to bore the life out of the clientele.
Frasier: Oh, I'm so sorry to disappoint you, Miss God's-Gift-to-Men. It just so happens that I come here to share the companionship of my male friends. So, men, what's on the agenda tonight?
Frasier: Oh, good Lord. I mean, "Rah."
Diane: Using a colloquialism to ingratiate yourself with the rabble? How very sad. How really very sad.
Quote from Bar Wars VI: This Time It's for Real
Sam: Come on. It's a golden opportunity. We can win this time. We can steal all of Gary's best ideas and use 'em against this new guy. And you remember how Gary's always going first? We can learn from that. We can move first ourselves.
Frasier: Very good, Sam. As that famous prankster Santayana once said, "Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it."
Woody: You got that right, Doctor Crane. Back in high school I was condemned to repeat History three times. By the way, the same goes for Mathematics.
