Quote from Ray in Sweet Charity

Ray: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. "Debra suggested"? You sent him in there?
Debra: Ray, I just... come on!
Ray: Oh, oh, oh! Dirty laundry is coming home to roost!
Debra: What are you talking about?
Ray: You wanted him to take my place so I could stay home and you could pretty yourself up and go out on the town with your face paint and your gewgaws! Yeah. You don't care about the old or the sick! You don't care that their entertainment now is a large man with his hand up the behind of a small plastic man! You were spending all your time there.
Debra: You were never here.
Ray: I was doing charity, and because it wasn't convenient for you, you wanted me to stop.
Debra: Ray, all l-
Ray: Buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-ba! I don't think you should be talking to me. I think you should be talking to... [points to the heavens]

Ray: Bhup!

Quote from Robert

Robert: Now, Timmy, that's a little rude. These kind people didn't come here to get insulted. [as Timmy] "Then maybe they should close their robes!"
Ray: What are you doing?
Robert: Now, Timmy, it won't do to have you talk like that while you're on duty, so let me remove your badge. "Gentle. It's nailed on. I hope the doctors here have some wood glue!"
Ray: That doesn't make sense. It's not a wood puppet.
Woman: Shh!
Robert: "All right. Now I can loosen up. Hello, doll face. What's your name?"
Margaret: Margaret.
Robert: "Well, you're a real looker. Maybe if you break your hip, I can be your splint. Ha-cha-cha-cha!" Easy, Timmy! I'm sorry.
Ray: He's not wood. He's made of plastic.
Robert: "Hey, folks, what do you think this guy's doing in the hospital, huh? Probably dropped in for an emergency nose reduction. Ladies and gentlemen, my cousin Pinocchio!"

Quote from Ray

Claudia: Hey, are you Ray Barone, the sportswriter?
Ray: Ha ha! Yeah, yeah.
Jean: And you've never seen blood before?
Ray: Sure. Just not "to go." But I'm all right though, now.

Quote from Debra

Debra: You know what? Just forget it.
Ray: Wh- You see? This is what I don't like about charities. It's all about making people feel guilty.
Debra: What? What did I do? I'm not trying to make you feel guilty. I asked you to volunteer for something. You refused. Your guilt is your own.
Ray: You know how to work it.
Debra: Look, Ray, all I'm saying is that I just really love the charities that I'm involved with. And I feel like we have a lot and I really enjoy giving something back. I mean, that's what people do.
Ray: No, they don't!
Debra: All right, you know what? I'm not gonna argue with you. If you don't want to volunteer at the hospital, you don't have to. This is between you and Him.
Ray: Oh, you are shameless! Don't- Don't bring Him into it, okay? That's not gonna work with me. Take it back!
