Quote from Cliff

Cliff: Hey, Norm, look at this. I just got myself a brand-new video camera.
Norm: Ooh, nice one. Looks kind of expensive.
Cliff: Oh, yeah, it is, it is, but it- it'll pay for itself in no time at all.
Norm: Yeah?
Cliff: Yeah. Yeah, I plan to stage some footage for those programs, you know, like America's Funniest Home Videos, Rescue 911, Nightline, stuff like that.
Norm: Cliff, I don't think Nightline is staged.
Cliff: You are so naive.

Quote from Norm

Cliff: Speaking of which, uh, I could use an assistant for my video endeavors. Uh, what do you say? I could start you off at 20, uh, 15 bucks.

Cliff: Uh, Christmas was a couple of weeks ago.
Norm: Oh, my.

Quote from Woody

[on answering machine:]
Woody: Hi, this is Cheers. Well, it isn't actually Cheers, it's Woody Boyd. Cheers is actually the bar, and as such, it couldn't be expected to talk.
Sam: Woody, start again.
Woody: Why? I'm doing fine. Anyway, uh, there's no one here to take your call right now. Well, actually, if you called right now, we could take your call, but if you call when you're...
Sam: Woody, would you cut it out? It's sounding stupid.
Woody: I am not. W-W-Why do you always treat me like I don't know what I'm doing?
Sam: It sounds stupid, Woody.
Woody: It does not. [machine beeps]
Woody: Hi, Sam, this is Woody. Uh, I guess you were right. It does sound stupid. I'll change it tomorrow.

Quote from Cliff

Cliff: Hey, whoa, whoa, hey. Whoa, whoa. Excuse me, there, buddy boy. l, uh, couldn't help overhearing that you're looking for a photographer?
Peter: That's right.
Cliff: Well, you are in luck. I'm Clifford Clavin, one of the best camcorder jockeys in all of Boston.
Peter: If you're in the video business, why are you dressed as a mail-man?
Cliff: Costume party down at the Directors Guild.

Quote from Carla

Sam: Are you crazy? Did I just hear you turn down a date with that girl? Come on, man, reel her in.
Frasier: Oh, Sam, you don't seem to understand. Look, I just came off a seven-year marriage. It's hard to think of replacing Lilith.
Carla: Just go to the morgue and open any drawer.
Sam: Listen, listen, listen, listen. I'm not, I'm not saying you got to replace the corpse- Replace Lilith. All I'm saying is, you know, ask- ask her out on a date.

Quote from Carla

Carla: I told you we're closed. It's a private party. Employees only.
Paul: Please. I'll tell them I own the place. I do it all the time.
Carla: For the last time, go home! [hits the door]
Paul: Ow!
Rebecca: Carla, will you stop being rude to the customers?
Carla: It was Paul.
Rebecca: Oh, I'm sorry, I couldn't see through the glass.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Okay, now, I brought some of his toys here. We've got his, uh, his choo-choo.
Sam: Hmm.
Frasier: And his blankey.
Sam: Mm-hmm.
Frasier: And his toy soldier. Here you go.
Sam: Ooh, cool.
Frasier: And, uh... Well, let's see... Bag full of educational crap that Lilith got him.

Quote from Carla

Frasier: And his, uh, favourite book The Runaway Bunny.
Carla: You keep that book away from me.
Woody: How come, Carla?
Carla: I have eight kids. I've read that book a thousand times, and every time I read it, I bawl like a baby.
Woody: Oh, no kidding. "Once there was a little bunny..."
Carla: Stop it. No, stop it.
Woody: "who wanted to run away..."
Carla: Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: All right, Sam, now listen, here's a list of numbers. Here's, uh, my beeper. This is, uh, Shauna's house. And this is Lilith at the eco-pod.
Sam: They got a telephone at the eco-pod?
Frasier: Well, no, it's just for emergencies, but, uh, listen, call her, yank her chain for me. I won't have a chance to do it tonight.
Sam: [laughs] I'll see if I can get to it.

Quote from Rebecca

Rebecca: There you are. Everything's all set. I took the liberty of making name tags for everybody. See? Hello, my name's Rebecca. And this one is for you, Peter. And your name is?
Woman: We're all family. We know each other's names.
Rebecca: Well, let me make one out for you anyway. B-l-T-C...

Quote from Sam

Sam: Okay, so this button's the "on-off" button. This, uh, this button here makes it louder or softer. And these two buttons right here make everything bluer or greener. Those two are my favorites. Have a ball there. [to Woody] Poor kid. Probably don't let him watch enough TV at home.
Woody: Yeah. It's a wonder why some people even have kids.

Quote from Cliff

Norm: What are you? What are you telling me? That this camera doesn't... That this camera is useless? These people paid us good money, Cliff. What are we going to do?!
Cliff: Relax, will you, Norm. We'll... We'll figure out some kind of a plan.
Norm: Well, you'd better come up with something.
Cliff: All right, here. Here's what we'll do.
Norm: All right.
Cliff: We'll just carry on and film as though nothing's wrong. We'll pretend the camera's working. Then in a couple of days when they call us for the film, we'll say, "We dropped it in the mail. It must have gotten lost." All right? We got the 50 bucks, nobody's the wiser.
Norm: Great, great, as long as you have a plan.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: So you're, uh, Shauna's family. You know, when Shauna invited me for dinner, she didn't mention that we'd be having dinner with her whole family. [chuckles] Interestingly enough, many young people today are choosing to move back in with their parents. We call it the, uh, "Full Nest Syndrome."
Father: It wasn't her choice.
Mother: Well, Shauna's made some bad decisions. She's not real good on responsibility.
Frasier: Well, I must say that she, uh, she handled herself quite well this week at my office.
Shauna: Thank you, Dr. Crane. See?!
Father: Oh, yeah, Doctor, I forgot I was getting a professional opinion. Where did you go to school?
Frasier: Harvard.
Father: Well, la-di-da. And is this what they taught you at Harvard? How to take advantage of my daughter?
Frasier: Sir, I am not taking advantage. I was merely invited for an innocent little dinner.
Father: Oh? Just "an innocent little dinner"? Mind if I check your wallet?
Frasier: There's no need for that!

Quote from Sam

Sam: So I guess, Freddy, uh, you know what they're saying is that wherever the baby bunny goes, the mommy bunny is... is there waiting for him to take care of him. I guess l, uh, must have touched my eye with some of that, uh, salt from the peanuts.
Woody: [crying] Me, too.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: So, what's new?
Sam: Got a message for you here, Fras. Yeah, here we go. Shauna called you. [patrons hoot]
Frasier: Now, settle down, class. Shauna is my secretary. [all hooting] My temporary secretary. She's all of 21 years old, for God's sake. [all hooting]
Sam: Come on, stop it, you guys. Have a little class, will you? So you going to try and bag her?
Frasier: No, I am not. Although it's not entirely out of the realm of reality. It does seem that the lass has a a thing, for Dr. Crane.
Sam: [chuckles] Good for you.
Frasier: Well, I mean, after all, it's not so hard to believe. I've been keeping myself in pretty good shape. You know, I've been Nordic Tracking it every night.
