Henry Sherman: Pagoda has something to say.
Pagoda: [points at Royal] He has a cancer.

Royal: How would you know?
Henry Sherman: My wife had it. Not only is there no Dr. McClure at Colby General, there is no Colby General. It closed in 1974.
Royal: [getting out of bed] Aw, shit, man.
Pagoda: Oh, shit, man.

Henry Sherman: I just wanted to apologize for the other day, when I proposed to you.

Henry Sherman: How do you do?
Royal: Not too well, I'm dying.

Ethel: [about Royal's fake terminal illness charade] Were you part of this, Pagoda?
Henry Sherman: Of course he was.
Royal: No... well, yeah, he was, but, I mean, he wasn't *that* involved.
