Rebecca Quote #246

Quote from Rebecca in The Improbable Dream (Part 1)

Rebecca: Don't you understand what I'm trying to say? I was taught to win, to strive, to achieve. I was taught to never ever settle.
Sam: Sweetheart, how do you explain working in this bar for the last three years?
Rebecca: Has it been that long? [sobs]
Sam: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. That was a low blow. I know settling stinks, but there are a lot of things that are worse, like never taking a chance, always waiting for something better to come along. What if something doesn't come?
Rebecca: It will.
Sam: Sweetheart, when was the last time you had a close relationship with a man?
Rebecca: What do you mean by close?
Sam: Close.
Rebecca: [scoffs] Oh, yeah, like, if you mean close, close, close, well, that would've been just right before I started working here.
Sam: Three years ago.
Rebecca: [sobs] Has it been that long?

Quote from Cliff

Sam: OK, one more thing here. What do you think is going to make her go to sleep faster, Brahms's "Lullaby" or "The Sounds of Spring Showers in a Rain Forest"?
Cliff: You know, Sammy, that question has plagued mankind since the beginning of time. How to lure to our bed the elusive Morpheus, son of Hypnos, known to the sand dwellers of Rome as Somnus. Now...
Norm: If you really want to put her to sleep, Sam, record him.

Quote from Norm

Frasier: Gents, mind my Corona with lime, will you? I've got to see a man about an equine.
Woody: There goes one elegant guy.
Norm: Yeah. Nothing says class like a chunk of fruit floating in your beer.
Cliff: Oh, come on, Norm. It's yuppie nouveau to have a little fruit floating in your beer.
Norm: Call me old fashioned, Cliff, the only thing I like floating in beer is my liver.

Quote from I'm Getting My Act Together and Sticking It in Your Face

Sam: [on the phone] What are you doing? Where are you going?
Rebecca: I'm- l'm going home to San Diego, Sam. I want to try and forget Boston. I want to erase the last three years of my life.
Sam: It's been five, Rebecca.

Quote from License to Hill

Rebecca: Sir, here is your Scotch and soda.
Carla: Rebecca.
Rebecca: It's all right. I have a plan, just watch this. Here you go. N- N- N- N- No. I don't need any money. I want you to take this and just think of it as a gift from me, Rebecca Howe, private citizen and in no way affiliated with this bar.
Man: Thanks.
Rebecca: You see that? That's all we have to do, that's the answer. All we have to do is give everybody free alcohol and not take any money for it, and this bar can stay in business forever!
