Chance Wayne: And at the same time I was... employing my other talent, lovemaking.
Alexandra Del Lago: That may be the only talent you were ever truly meant for.
Evie Jackson: They're after me, you know.
Harry Mork: [laughs] What for?
Evie Jackson: Oh, a fourth at bridge, getting tables in restaurants. There comes a time when women band together. Sometimes they don't even call each other by their first names. Because they're not even friends.
Miss Tait: We missed you at the awards banquet, Miss Jackson.
Evie Jackson: We ate Japanese.
Miss Tait: We had creamed chicken.
Harry Mork: You sorry you missed the banquet?
