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.
Andy Travis: I'll check the bullpen first.
Venus Flytrap: You know what bugs me about Herb?
Dr. Johnny Fever: [sarcastically] Ha ha, ha ha. Is this a test?
Venus Flytrap: Sometimes he says stuff that seems like it makes sense, and then I realize that it's Herb that's sayin' it.
[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.
[Venus has just met the reporter for the militant Black Life magazine, Rick Jesperson, who will be interviewing him and who happens to be white]
Rick Jesperson: I've really been looking forward to this.
Venus Flytrap: Me too.
Rick Jesperson: Thanks.
Venus Flytrap: I tell you, though, you kind of threw me there.
Rick Jesperson: I'm sorry.
Venus Flytrap: I didn't know you'd be white.
Rick Jesperson: I thought this was a black station.
Venus Flytrap: It's a white station.
Rick Jesperson: I'm white. My magazine's black.
Venus Flytrap: I'm black.
Rick Jesperson: We're an equal opportunity employer.
Venus Flytrap: Same here.
Rick Jesperson: We're pretty militant about it too.
Venus Flytrap: Me too.
Rick Jesperson: Well good. Let's talk.
Venus Flytrap: 'bout what?
Rick Jesperson: How about race?
Venus Flytrap: I don't think that much about it.
Rick Jesperson: Me neither.
Venus Flytrap: Have a seat.
Rick Jesperson: Thank you.
