Bailey Quarters: [as Bailey and Les stare out the window in deep contemplation] Have you ever wondered what makes someone what they are?

Les Nessman: Have you ever wondered why Russian women look like men?

Bailey Quarters: I hadn't noticed.

Les Nessman: I think they kidnap men from all over the world, take them to Moscow and turn them into Russian women.

Bailey Quarters: [giggling under her breath] Do you?

Les Nessman: I think that's what happened to Jimmy Hoffa. By now, he's probably a grandmother in the Ukraine.

[Andy sneaks up behind Bailey and Les, who are startled when he speaks]

Andy Travis: Whadda you lookin' at?

Bailey Quarters: Ah, there's a man in the building over there on the sixteenth floor who's exercising in the nude again.

Andy Travis: [coughing] Seen Venus?

Bailey Quarters: Nude?

Andy Travis: No, just around.

Les Nessman: I think he's in the bullpen arguing with Herb.

Bailey Quarters: Or else he's in Russia being turned into a ballerina.

[Mr. Carlson, Herb and Jennifer are in the reception area when Andy enters]

Andy Travis: [to Mr. Carlson] Did you want to see me?

Arthur Carlson: Yes, as a matter of fact I did. I want you to impress upon Herb how important it is that he sign new clients.

Andy Travis: [turns to Herb in confusion, then turns back to Mr. Carlson] OK, why don't you tell him yourself?

Arthur Carlson: Well, I can do that now because Herb's here, but he wasn't here when I sent for you. I was going to tell you to tell him, then I left, and of course when I got back Herb was here, but I couldn't tell him because you said you sent for me, and then I answered you, so there you go.

Andy Travis: So now what?

Arthur Carlson: Well, I don't know.

[Venus enters the room]

Venus Flytrap: What's going on?

Andy Travis: Ah, Mr. Carlson was just explaining nuclear physics to us.
