Quote from Paris

Bill: When the editor in chief isn't here, the managing editor's in charge. That's standard operating procedure at every newspaper in the country.
Paris: Yes, but I've done this 1,000 times, and you've never done it, Bill. Experience.
Bill: Experience that led to a mutiny. It's not like anyone ever gave Captain Bligh another ship after the Bounty.

Emily: [laughs] That's what he gets for trying to fraternize after class with his students.
Richard: One of them even offered to burn a CD for me.

Quote from Emily

Emily: Of course, this time of year, so many people start playing that awful winter tennis with the chicken-wire cages and the heated courts.
Richard: Platform tennis can be very enjoyable, Emily.
Emily: Yes, but it looks ridiculous, like glorified ping-pong. If I wanted to play ping-pong, I would... Well, if I wanted to play ping-pong, I would kill myself.
