"Norm: The Norm Law (#3.4)" (2000)
Norm Henderson: Look, Shely, it's not all bad news, look! Look! The paper described you as thee 34 year-old Shelly Kilmartin.
Shelly Kilmartin: I am 34. How old did you think I was?
Norm Henderson: I... I thought you were, ah, very-pretty years old.

Danny Sanchez: Aren't you worried about what Mr. Denby is going to do to you?
Norm Henderson: Well, yeah, of course I am, but, but I'm more worried about Shelly, you know? I mean - I don't want to see her punished, you know? Unless she's getting spanked by another hot broad, you know.

Shelly Kilmartin: Laurie, I need to ask you and Danny something really important.
Norm Henderson: Ah, come on Shelly you don't do you high school games here, if you like me, then just tell me directly.
Shelly Kilmartin: [points at him] Who do I tell if I feel absolutely nothing?
Norm Henderson: [after five seconds of thinking] Well, I think you should probably tell a doctor.

Councilman Schmutznik: Okay! The next matter before the committee is the hearing in support of MC-218, the Norm Law.
Norm Henderson: The Norm Law?
[to Denby, whom has suggested that law earlier]
Norm Henderson: Sir, I cannot believe this. You are besmirching the name of many a famous Norm's. why, I believe the great Norm Crosby himself would find this law grossly erogenous
Max Denby: You're in big trouble, mister!
[going through files in a bunch of boxes on Norm he's brought to the hearing]
Max Denby: Big trouble! I was up all night working on my speech, all night; takes about two hours. Ah, I left a little time at the end for people to chant your name in anger!
[wheeling a some heavy boxes on a dolly to the podium]
Councilman Schmutznik: First of all, let me apologize for the long wait. All right now! We will now hear from a mister Denby, and then a Norm Henderson, then lastly we will question the Shelly Kilmartin about her alleged negligence. Unfortunately, because we are behind schedule we will have to limit everyone's testimony. Mister Denby, you have thirty seconds.
Max Denby: [sudden look of shock] Thir'? Wha-what, what? WHAT?
[looking at his watch and stuttering heavily]
Max Denby: I-I-I, thirty! Un-un-un-un, NO! Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, I got, I got these files!
[lifting the massive paper work]
Max Denby: These files! There's, there's so, so, so much! I-I-I-I-I-I
[looking at his watch again]
Max Denby: N-NOOOOO! AH! NORM!
[pointing like a madman for a few seconds with a throbbing forehead vein]
Max Denby: BAD!
[taking off his glasses and lowering his head in defeat]


"Norm: Norm vs. the Sacrifice (#3.1)" (2000)
Danny Sanchez: [talking to Taylor whom is watching a soap opera on TV] I don't know how you women watch these things; I mean, the story lines are so preposterous.

[reading off a piece of paper]
Norm Henderson: you're crack-addicted hermaphrodite client finally found her biological mother in a Spanish prison. She-she needs to reschedule.

Norm Henderson: All right, sir, well, ah... ah, let me think...
[scratches his head]
Norm Henderson: Ah, well, compared to Hitler, sir...
Max Denby: [cuts him off, waving his hands "no"] Ah! Ah!

Tony DiBenedetto: Ow! Hey! Look at this guy!
[picking up Wiener Dog]
Tony DiBenedetto: Hey, hey! How you doing there little fella? Huh? Hey
[to Denby]
Tony DiBenedetto: I hear you hired someone with no thumbs and three-inch legs. I'm glad we're finally hiring the disabled around here. So, ah, where is this courageous mess?
[kissing and hugging the dog]
Norm Henderson: Well, ah, right now you're sexually harrassing him, sir.
Tony DiBenedetto: The dog? You dumb huckleberry! Don't tell me you hired a god!
Max Denby: Well, I-I-I-I-I didn't know he was a dog at the time.
Tony DiBenedetto: Oh, that's funny! I picked up on it right away!
[sarcastically]

Max Denby: Norm! What is your dog doing at work?
Norm Henderson: Sir, remember when you, ah, told us to keep an eye out for Level I Clarical Assistant?
Max Denby: Do-do, don't tell me you hired Wiener Dog.
Norm Henderson: Well, you know, sir, technically you did when you signed this authorization form. Remember? You encouraged us to find somebody with a disability.
Max Denby: [reads the piece of paper] Applicant has no thumbs, three-inch legs, and speaks absolutely no English. This, this, this, this is atrocious; he's fired, he's fi - get rid of him! Get rid of him now!
Norm Henderson: Come on, sir, you can't fire Wiener Dog, there. He's a good man.
Max Denby: Why? Watch me.
Laurie Freeman: Well, sir, actually sir, as crazy as it sounds, you really can't fire him; if you terminate a worker with no notice, the union automatically files a grievance.
Max Denby: I-I-I, I can't fire a dog?
Danny Sanchez: This is great! If we hire a new drug counselor, can I get my hermit crab?
Taylor Clayton: I have a gold fish I've been trying to get in the government for years.
[Danny laughs]
Max Denby: STOP! STOP all of you!
Laurie Freeman: Well, I'm afraid it says right here, sir
[pointing to a place in a union handbook]
Laurie Freeman: before you fire anyone, you have to state the specific problem and then give them two weeks to improve their performance.
Max Denby: [faces Wiener Dog] Hello, Wiener Dog, I, ah, am sorry to say that I'm unhappy with your job performance; you got two weeks to improve your typing skills and learn to talk!


"Norm: Norm vs. Love (#2.1)" (1999)
Norm Henderson: [upon seeing Shelly arrive at the party with a date] Oh my, God - she brought a guy. Didn't you tell her not to bring a guy? Even I knew not to bring a guy!
Laurie Freeman: I'm sorry! I didn't know she was seeing anybody right now. Wow - he's old.
Shelly: Norm, Laurie, I'd like you to meet Avery. He's the Dean of the English department over at NYU.
Norm Henderson: Ho, ho, well, it's a very impressive position. I guess that's one of the rewards of out-living all your contemporaries, right?

Shelly: Okay, look, Norm, I know you're upset because I turned you down, but I hope you're not planning on spending the entire evening taking it out on my date.
Norm Henderson: Look, it's so obvious what you're doing, you know? Obviously you had some problems with young guys, so you went down to the VFW, and ah, you said, "Hey! You got anybody from World War I here!", I'd like to...
[trails off]

Norm Henderson: [standing in front of a faded-blue background talking to the viewers, with white square that says "TV 14 D" on it] Hi, I thought tonight would be a good time to show you exactly how these ratings work.
[another white box with "TV G" appears on screen]
Norm Henderson: For example, I can get this to change
[points at it]
Norm Henderson: if I say "Hell". Doesn't even change for Hell. What a world, huh, folks? I guess I have to say something rougher like "ass".
[the box changes to "TV PG"]
Norm Henderson: Then it becomes a TV PG. There's also ratings for violence...
[picks up a green glass bottle and breaks it over his head; the box changes again to "TV PG V"]
Norm Henderson: And suggestive dialogue. You know what I'm saying, folks? Sugestive?
[another change makes it "TV PG VD"]
Norm Henderson: Oh, hey, VD!
[it changes to "TV PG VDS"]
Norm Henderson: And that brings us to "S", for sexual situations. Thank you, enjoy the show.

Max Denby: Norm, I have to talk to you about a very delicate matter...
Norm Henderson: Oh! Sir, this isn't about your period again, is it, sir?
[stands up]
Norm Henderson: Because as I've explained, sir, that's not a curse, it's the full-flowering of your womanhood, you know that!
Max Denby: It's about Taylor, I-I-I I want you to watch her; I think she may be turning tricks again.
Norm Henderson: Oh! Oh! Say no more, sir...
[pulls out his wallet]
Norm Henderson: What do you need? Two, three-hundred bucks?
Max Denby: Norm, she's a mess! Norm, oh no, she's a mess! I-I she looks like she's been up all night. I think she may have fallen off the hookerwagon.
Norm Henderson: Mr. Denby, Mr. Denby, come on now. They haven't called it the hookerwagon in years. PIMPmobiles is what they call it now!


"Norm: Norm vs. the Evil Twin (#2.13)" (2000)
Norm Henderson: [trying to persuade Taylor on Danny] Oh, ah, hey, Taylor, listen, ah, let me tell you something: if I weren't straight, I'd like to get a piece of this.
[thumbing rapidly at Danny]

Norm Henderson: [Danny does cartwheels after Taylor agrees to a date, Norm walks by as he does so] Taylor said "Yes", huh?
Danny Sanchez: Yes! I can't believe it! She's so far out of my league!
Norm Henderson: Ah, listen, Danny, I'm getting tired of this talk; let me tell you something: Taylor is lucky to be going out with you!
Danny Sanchez: What?
[surprised]
Norm Henderson: I can't say that twice with a straight face, buddy.

Norm Henderson: Let me tell you something, man: for once I'd like to do something really bad and not get punished for it!

Norm Henderson: Laurie, you got to understand, if somebody asks if you had sex with their sister, you gotta say "No", you know? Especially if you've had sex with their sister.
Laurie Freeman: Well, great! So, Jamie did it to me again.
Norm Henderson: Yeah, well, listen Laurie, I'm really sorry.
Laurie Freeman: I don't know, I just don't get it. What is this thing she has? Why do men fall for it? Is it the skimpy outfits and the way that she just throws herself at guys, or is there some deeper reason that I just don't understand?
Norm Henderson: No, you understand perfectly; there's no deeper meaning.


"Norm: Norm vs. Deception (#3.20)" (2001)
Norm Henderson: Shelly is interested in me because I did something for you.
[leaning back in his chair realizing what's happened]
Norm Henderson: I knew if I did something unselfish, I would get something out of it!
[motioning to himself]

Shelly Kilmartin: Did you really think we could have a long-term relationship based on a lie?
Norm Henderson: Oh, you bet'cha.
[grinning]

Norm Henderson: No, no - I think I know a way to get this guy.
[referring to Lee, the guy Lurie's been trying to get]
Laurie Freeman: What do you mean?
Norm Henderson: Well, ah, let me explain something to you, Lurie, you know, ah: in the animal kingdom the male lion is always interested in the lioness that has another male lion, that way it knows that the lioness is fertile and free of disease
Laurie Freeman: Ohhhh!
[understanding his point]
Norm Henderson: Yeah. And you are, right?
Laurie Freeman: Yeah!
Lee: [having just walked over with some paper work] Hey, ah, Lurie, if you can give me that last total we can get the budget out today.
Norm Henderson: Ahhh! Lurie, I love ya!
[putting his hands on her shoulders]
Norm Henderson: Love ya! Every time I look at you I think: there is a girl, who is clean and can have a baby!

Laurie Freeman: Did you really think you could hide this from me?
Norm Henderson: Ah, yeah, kind of. I kind of did.
[thinking Laurise had caught him reporting to the tabloid]
Laurie Freeman: Um huh, well you can't. 'cause you're really great with kids and now everybody knows it.
Norm Henderson: Oh! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
[realizing he's not been caught]
Norm Henderson: Well, the way I look at it, you know, the way to treat kids is to treat them with respect. I think of them as tiny adults who are stupid.

Norm Henderson: Listen, Laurie, Hector has something to tell you. Ah, Hector, tell, tell, tell Laurie about your mother.
Hector: She's dead and I have cancer.
[lying to Laurie]
Laurie Freeman: What?
[shocked]
Norm Henderson: No, no, no, no, no - Hector, the truth.
Hector: My mother's alive in Cuba; I just wanted to see America. I did not think it would be so bad to lie.
Laurie Freeman: Hector, why would you do something like that?
Norm Henderson: Ah, come on now, he just needed a little vacation, you know, from thee, ah... Godless communists. You know?
Laurie Freeman: Well, I'm gonna have to call Mr. Denby right away. We have got to get you home.
[leaving the kitchen]
Hector: Norm, why did you do this?
Norm Henderson: Ah, listen, Hector, you know, ahhh, what I told you about lying, it wasn't right; kids should never lie, you know? You got to wait 'till you're an adult, so, so you can do it responsibly.

Laurie Freeman: So, Hector, are there any questions you've wanted to ask anybody since you've been in the country?
Hector: Well, there is one thing I've been wondering about...
Laurie Freeman: Hummm, what's that?
Hector: Where do babies come from?
Laurie Freeman: Well, Hector, that's a very good question. Ummm, when a man and a woman love each other, they...
Norm Henderson: BOOOOO!
[towards Laurie]
Norm Henderson: You got to be able to talk to kids in their own laguage there, Laurie.
[turns to face Hector after moving closer to him]
Norm Henderson: Ah, let me explain it to you this way, Hector: you see, ah, ah, a man has what's called a, ah, bunny rabbit. And, ah, a woman has a cabbage patch, now! In order to, ah, get a baby, thee bunny rabbit has to hop into thee cabbage patch. Now, sometimes, you know, through no fault of the bunny rabbit, maybe too much to drink, stress, whatever... who knows, you know, maybe thee, ah, maybe he's heard of a bigger bunny rabbit that was in the cabbage patch earlier, whatever it is. The point of it is this: often times the bunny rabbit has to look at explicit photographs before it can even go near the cabbage patch.
Laurie Freeman: Nor, Norm! I've had sex and you've confused me!


"Norm: Laurie Runs for Office (#2.6)" (1999)
Laurie Freeman: A horrible man.
Norm Henderson: Laurie, listen, if you want me to go after him, just tell me and I will.
Laurie Freeman: I don't know what to do, Norm, he's just a bad man! But see, then I'm a hypocrite if I let you attack him.
Norm Henderson: Well, you shouldn't have to decide, you know. Well, let's let God decide.
[he stands up]
Norm Henderson: Ah, bow your head there is prayer, Laurie. Dear God, ah, listen. Ah, there's this bad man that I want to destroy, but ah, if you want me to resist the temptation and stay on thee path of righteousness, then ah, just give me a sign, any sign.

Norm Henderson: No sign!

Norm Henderson: I don't need a reading lamp in my living room, I don't have a toilet in there.

Artie Henderson: Listen, man, the lamp is just the beginning. Next thing you know she's going to start brining all this girly stuff over to your apartment, you know, like doilies, curlers, and salad. then you wake up one morning and you got a cat. Is that what you want? A cat?
Norm Henderson: Nope, I don't want a cat.
Artie Henderson: Then comes the ultimatum.

[pointing down at one of Norm's feet]
Norm Henderson: Eh, don't take this the wrong way, Artie, but if I ever married, you know, I might ask somebody else to do the toast.

Now, ah, fellows, my, ah, friend here is thinking about getting married, and I was wondering if you could tell him if you think marriage is a smart idea.

Norm Henderson: Sir, may I say that, ah, now that you're out amongst us, it's not like you're the boss anymore, you know, you're just like one of us sir - except! Except that, of course, you ahve a huge prostate.

Danny Sanchez: I'm-I'm so nervous, I mean, what if she doesn't say "Yes"?

"Norm: Taylor Leaves (#3.3)" (2000)
Norm Henderson: You know what I do when a girl breaks up with me, is I pretend that, ah, I never loved her and that I was just using her for the sex. Either that or I pretend, ah, that I'm a superhero and I need to extract fuel from her to help me fly.

Shelly Kilmartin: How on Earth could Taylor have a crush on you?
Norm Henderson: What are you talking about? You dated me.
Shelly Kilmartin: [ponders for a second] How on Earth could I have dated you?
Norm Henderson: Hey, I'll tell you what,
[picks up a bowl of snacks]
Norm Henderson: why don't you have some, ah, snacks here instead of talkin', huh?

Danny Sanchez: Do you know how many things had to go exactly right for me to get Taylor? The same number of accidents that created life on Earth.

Shelly Kilmartin: [after putting on lip gloss to go see some firemen giving a safety demonstration] so, how do I look?

Norm Henderson: Wo-why not?
Max Denby: It's the seperation of church and state, Norm. There would be people who are offended because they don't belong to this particular religion.

Max Denby: It... it... it's the birth of Christ, Norm.
Norm Henderson: Really? Jesus Christ?

Danny Sanchez: Norm, you're doing community service, ah, she seemd to like you - you should have told her the truth.
Norm Henderson: Ah, Danny, Danny, Danny, Danny, sweet, innocent naive Danny. Don't you realize the truth is for children and people who don't wanna to have sex? There's only one problem: I got no place to take her 'cause I got no money.

[Norm yells at Laurie whom has just walked up behind him in the bar as he watches the football game]
Laurie Freeman: Praying?
Norm Henderson: Yes, and it's working, all right? I think God just tripped their leading scorer. Now, just quiet.
[puts his hands together to pray]

Norm Henderson: [Norm looks around confused, gets up and starts backing away, then sees a sign that reads: "ROOM 212 NECROPHILIACS ANONYMOUS"] Hey, wait a minute - this isn't gambler anonymous, that must be down the hall.
[opens the door to leave]

Shelly Kilmartin: Yes, it would; a big difference.
Norm Henderson: Really? So, you'd go out with me then?
Shelly Kilmartin: Well, if you were psychologically more healthy I would definitively consider it.

Laurie Freeman: Norm, what do you think? Do you agree with that? I mean, I want your honest opinion.
Norm Henderson: Well, ah, now, it's not about you, Laurie, but, ah, it's the law of nature; look: a, a young moneky would never hook up with an old monkey because she couldn't bare his seed.
