Joe Garrelli: Made something for you, dude.
Dave: What is it, a time machine?

Joe: Seven times. I flunked this test seven times, you know. I mean, I don't want to say 'conspiracy,' but...
Lisa: Well actually, I am starting to see a pattern here."
Joe: Ah. Uh huh. Uh huh.
Lisa: One of last year's questions was: 'In the following circuit, the potential is blank volts.' And you answered: 'I refuse to answer the question on the grounds that the design of this circuit is totally sucky.'

Joe: Is 800 the score or the number of times you brag about your score?

Joe Garrelli: That all federal judges are members of an obscure sect of the Freemasons.
Jimmy James: Wait a minute. You're telling me that our entire case is based on all judges being Masons?

[Catherine does]
Joe: Now take off your rings.
[Catherine does]
Joe: Now your blouse.
[Catherine hits Joe upside the head]
Joe: Now I'm hearing a clicking and ringing noise.

Catherine Duke: Joe, this clicking noise. Could it possibly be from a piece of plastic hitting another piece of plastic?

Catherine Duke: Like plastic clicking on, say, a cheap, slapped-together reel-to-reel?
Joe: Could be. Could be.
Catherine Duke: Like - oh, I don't know - a label that says Garreli 5000 on it?

Matthew Brock: What up?
Jimmy James: That's very impressive.
Joe Garrelli: Thank you.
Dave Nelson: No, Joe just told him to do that.
Joe Garrelli: Dave, with Matthew, telling him to do something is hypnotism.

Dave Nelson: Joe, Mr. James is a human being, not your personal plaything.
Joe Garrelli: We'll just keep that our little secret.

Matthew Brock: Look, Mr.James! Over there! It's Vietnam!
Jimmy James: Joe, Matthew is making me see Vietnam in the foyer!

Lisa: My sugar daddy?
Joe: Sweetpapa, whatever.

Dave: Listen, everyone: there, there's absolutely no favoritism at play here, alright?

Joe Garrelli: You know it.

Dave Nelson: Okay, I'm not fine. I'm not fine.

Catherine Duke: Pure evil?
Dave Nelson: Pure. Evil.
Joe Garrelli: [enters] Hey, Dave, can I borrow five bucks?
Dave Nelson: Sure, Joe, my wallet's in my desk.
[Joe leaves]
Dave Nelson: Where was I?
Catherine Duke: Um, pure evil.
Dave Nelson: Pure. Evil. And by embodying pure evil, as I now do, in one short week, I will have my old job rightfully rebestowed upon me.
Catherine Duke: You're gonna get Lisa fired?
Dave Nelson: Oh, lord no. No. I mean, that wouldn't be fair. It's not her fault. I mean, I shouldn't make her the target of my, uh, y'know, my, my...
Catherine Duke: Pure evilness?
Dave Nelson: Yeah. I'm still-still getting the hang of it.
Catherine Duke: Yeah, well, don't you worry about it, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

[Joe hits the plank; it doesn't break]
Dave Nelson: Wanna try it again?
Joe Garrelli: Nope, that's it.
Lisa Miller: It didn't break.
Joe Garrelli: It's not supposed to break. My talent is hitting things real hard and not hurt my hand.

Dave Nelson: Why is it that everyone's solution to everything around here is some sort of covert plan?

Bill: Joe, who's the black undercover dick who's a sex machine with all the chicks?
Joe: Why, I believe that would be Shaft, Bill.
Bill: Mmm-hmm. And who's the cat who won't cop out when there is danger all about?
Joe: Once again Bill, you are referring to Shaft. You know, they say that Shaft is one bad mutha...

Johnny Johnson: What's on your mind?
Joe: This is not about what's on my mind. It's what's on my iron fists.

Joe Garrelli: There, it's fixed.

Matthew: You mean he's Jewish?


"NewsRadio: Towers (#5.13)" (1999)
Joe Garrelli: Sir, the Sears Building is 110 stories. Is 200 even feasible?

Joe Garrelli: No problem, dude.
[after a pause, Dave bolts to the printer]

Dave Nelson: I know it's a crummy story but someone has to do a piece on the Williamsburg Bridge renovation.
Lisa Miller: Give it to me, Dave. I'll take it.
Joe Garrelli: That's not the first time Dave's heard Lisa say that.
Dave Nelson: Give it a rest.
Bill: I'll bet that's not the first time Lisa's heard Dave say that.
Lisa Miller: Look you really don't want to get into this.
Catherine Duke: I bet Dave's never heard that one before.
Dave Nelson: Seriously, this is a very sensitive area.
Beth: Oh that's what she said.

Beth: Why don't you just fix things a little?
Joe Garrelli: I can't, I took an oath.
Matthew Brock: Joe, I just wanted you to know the coffee maker's broken.

Joe Garrelli: Dude, there is only one way to deal with a woman like that.
Matthew Brock: What's that?
Joe Garrelli: You get down on your hands and knees and you beg her to have sex with you.

Joe: It was a theory.


"NewsRadio: Twins (#3.18)" (1997)

[all agree]

Beth: Did you call the police?
Bill: Yes, and I explained the whole story.

"NewsRadio: New Hampshire (#5.22)" (1999)

"NewsRadio: Xmas Story (#2.10)" (1995)
Joe: Dave, why don't you just ask Mr. James to buy him a car, too?

And on and on and on. I listened for a second, and then I started *running* towards the bright light. But then I heard music. Slow Ride, you know, from Foghat? And I decided, if only I could hear that one more time, and so I came back.

Dave Nelson: Bill, that's Lisa. This is my mom.
Bill McNeal: Oh. Now I don't feel so guilty trying to picture her naked.


"NewsRadio: Spooky Rapping Crypt (#5.10)" (1998)
Joe: [after listening to Matthew's story of being ritually abused by Lisa] It sounds like you went through quite an ordeal.
Matthew: Yeah...
Joe: It also sounds an awful lot like last year's office Halloween party!
Matthew: Nice try, we didn't have a Halloween party last year.
Joe: Yes we did. You had too much of Max's Spookadelic punch and you made out with that girl from accounting who smells like garbage.

"NewsRadio: Inappropriate (#1.2)" (1995)
Jimmy James: Boy, I love a good party. Do you love a good party, Joe?

Joe Garrelli: I'm an electrician.
Jimmy James: Well, things were different in my day.
