Jim Rockford: Oh hey, they'll come, they'll come, and, you know, you've always got me!
Beth Davenport: Thanks Jim. I was talking about paying clients though...

Susan Kenniston: [Beth, Susan, Lessing, and Harcourt are arguing over whether to continue the underwater project] I don't, because I think I know what's causing this obstructionism: the idea of *me* bringing you business, the idea that *I* have something of my own to bring. As that old saying goes,"It's not enough that I succeed; all of my old friends must fail."
Beth Davenport: I resent that very much, Susan.

I must have thrown it 50 times since then. But I gotta hand it to you, Jim, you're a tough catch. Sometime, I don't know, last year I guess, I sort of settled for friend and I started looking for someone with more long range possibilities. David looked like a good candidate.
Jim Rockford: Thanks, but I'm still jealous.

Evelyn 'Angel' Martin: [Scene changes to Angel being interrogated by Federal Agents]

[first lines]
Jim Rockford: [telephone answering machine] This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Beth Davenport: Jim, it's Beth. You have the vet's number, the flea collar, and extra litter. One thing I forgot. Keep him away from other cats. He's not very discriminating.

Larry 'King' Sturtevant: Ah, listen honey, try not to stare. I know it's difficult, but why don't you just relax and later the two of us will go get some coffee. I'll let you look at my scrapbook, hah?
Beth Davenport: That'd be lovely, only I gave up reading the funnies in the third grade.
