"Sports Night: Smoky (#1.12)" (1999)
Dana Whitaker: Jeremy.
Jeremy Goodwin: Yes?
Dana Whitaker: Tell me the story so far on UCLA/Arizona.
Jeremy Goodwin: The story, Dana, is shooting percentage. Shooting percentage and offensive glass. Last I checked, UCLA was 12-for-24 from the field, 1-for-6 at the stripe. Arizona's press forced 12 turnovers, which led to 15 points. The 'cats, needless to say, were dominant in the paint, and McDuffy's got four fouls. That is the story.

Jeremy Goodwin: Yes?
Dana Whitaker: What's the score?

"Sports Night: Shoe Money Tonight (#1.10)" (1998)
Jeremy Goodwin: Natalie, listen to me. You've lost a lot of money to me tonight. You're basically gonna be living the rest of your life on a charitable grant from the Jeremy Goodwin Foundation. Take the hundred bucks back and fold.
Natalie Hurley: Scared?
Jeremy Goodwin: I've got a straight, you've got three sevens.
Natalie Hurley: You don't have a straight.
Jeremy Goodwin: Look at me. I'm not lying to you. I have a straight.
Natalie Hurley: How do you know I don't have a big house?
Jeremy Goodwin: A FULL house. Dan already folded the six you needed, and I have the other one. You don't have a house of any sort, you don't have a pup tent. You've got trip sevens, and I have a straight. I want you to trust me right now. I want you to say to yourself, yeah, I've dated a string of jerks in my life, they were stupid, they were mean to me, but maybe this one's different. Maybe I should take a chance and not adopt the break-up-with-him-before-he-breaks-my-heart strategy. I want you to remember that when I started liking you, I didn't stop liking tennis. And I want you to know that I don't think there's a woman in the world that you need to be threatened by, no matter how glamorous you think she is. But mostly, I want you to trust me, just once, when I tell you that you have three sevens, and I have a straight.

Casey McCall: I double my ass down.
Natalie Hurley: Fellas, I've got some bad news.
Casey McCall: There's no bad news tonight, Natalie. When the show comes down Danny and I are hopping a limo, heading down the Garden State Parkway and getting off at the exit clearly marked, The Zone.
Natalie Hurley: That's great, Casey, but all those things you just said...
Casey McCall: Yeh.
Natalie Hurley: Not gonna happen.

Dan Rydell: Shock therapy.
Natalie Hurley: Leave this to me. I'm gonna knock the writer's block right outta you.
Dan Rydell: By throwing water in my face?
Natalie Hurley: By surprising you with the unexpected. That was step one. There's not gonna be anymore water.

Dana Whitaker: Casey, be nice to Dan.
Casey McCall: "The Sophomore sensation credits her agility and quick first step to her father who used to take her to a neighborhood park all covered with cheese". Dana, we've got all kinds of sentence construction here. I think he's going to have to explain that it's the park that's covered with cheese and not the father.
Dan Rydell: This is an unforgiving room.
Natalie Hurley: Plus, it's a little hard to figure how running through cheese helped the kid with her agility and quick first step.
Dan Rydell: Thankyou everyone.

Dan Rydell: I'm not distracted.

Dana Whitaker: No problem?
Dan Rydell: I can stretch it.

Natalie Hurley: Yeah.

Natalie Hurley: I know.
Casey McCall: For more on that, we take you to our ship's purser, Gopher Smith, who's standing by on the Lido deck. Gopher?

Jeremy Goodwin: Maybe he stopped off.
Dana Whitaker: Where?
Jeremy Goodwin: For a pretzel.
Dana Whitaker: I'm serious. He was supposed to be ...
