Quotes

Janelle Cooper: [after beating Stewart in Air Hockey] Stewart, here's the fax you've been waiting for. And a message from Roberta in payroll. Oh, and I almost forgot. I also have your pride, self-respect, and what's left of your manhood.
Carter: You should get that back. Might need that someday.

Great Ensemble/Great Writing
17 November 1998 | by (Aurora, IL) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest show on TV this year. The writing is clever and genuinely funny. All of the members of the cast are interesting characters in themselves, and there is also tremendous chemistry among them. The chemistry between Stuart and Carter is especially good (possible spin-off?) I'd recommend that everyone look in on this show.
