The Pretender (1996–2000)
Patrick Bauchau: Sydney, Jacob
Sydney : Good morning, Miss Parker. Broots.
Broots : Sydney.
Miss Parker : You're looking... refreshed.
Sydney : New underpants will do that to you.
[Miss Parker and Broots look at each other silently]
Miss Parker : Sydney, you made a funny.
Sydney : Stole it, I'm afraid. Last night, I went on a date.
Broots : You had a date!
Miss Parker : [to Broots] That's when two people actually meet instead of typing to each other on a computer keyboard.
Miss Parker : So, if it was a date, how can you be sure that those are *your* underpants?
Sydney : You believe someone stole your mother's body?
Miss Parker : Except for this Scotch-induced earthquake rattling between my ears, I'm not sure exactly what to believe anymore.
Broots : Let's face it, Sydney. Catherine Parker's body being gone fits in with all the other bizarre happenings around here. The reappearance of Edna Raines, who, after 30 years, everyone thought was dead...
Miss Parker : And now who really is dead, thanks to the Bald Butcher she called hubby.
Sydney : You can't save them all, Jarod. You may be a Pretender, but you're human.
Sydney : Bernice and I went to this amusing little place, The Chocolat.
[Broots and Miss Parker burst out laughing]
Broots : You, uh, you, you, you went to a comedy club.
Sydney : New experiences keep my psychiatric skills finely tuned.
Miss Parker : Not to mention that slam-bang wit.
Sydney : Exactly! How many psychiatrists does it take to change one lightbulb?
