Maya Gallo: Quick, quick! Channel six, fast.
Jack Gallo: Why?
Maya Gallo: My blind date is on. I want to see what he looks like.
Charlton Heston: Hello, I'm Charlton Heston. Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my gun.
Jack Gallo: Maya, no!
Maya Gallo: No, no! Channel six.
Jack Gallo: You're reading too much into this, Maya. They're just puppets. Except the one with the monocle. He really burns my ass.
Nina Van Horn: You know how everyone says that to plan for the future you should make a sound financial investment? Well, I've taken the plunge.
Elliot DiMauro: Great. Is it that mutual fund I told you about?
Nina Van Horn: Better. A trendy new nightclub.
Dennis Finch: Shrewd plan. But for safety's sake, you should take some of that money and throw it off a plane.
[Jack and Elliot are watching Brian's Song]
Jack Gallo: This is without question the greatest guy movie ever made.
Dennis Finch: Ooh, Footloose.
Steven: By the way, I like your outfit.
Nina Van Horn: Oh, it's real giraffe. My friend Binnie accidentally ran it over at a party in Michael Jackson's ranch.
Jack Gallo: The wolf should get more camera time. He's like a young Pacino.
Dennis Finch: You couldn't pay me enough to do that job. Here, Jack. I finished shaving the lint off your floor mats.
Nina Van Horn: I have good news.
Dennis Finch: They delivered the bleachers for your bedroom?
Nina Van Horn: At least in my bedroom it's not a one-man show.
Jack Gallo: When you meet this guy, ask him why Mr. Mayor wears glasses and a monocle. It really bothers Hannah.
Steven: How did you wind up at Blush?
Maya Gallo: It's a really inspiring story. Studied hard, went to college, paid my dues... got job from daddy.
Maya Gallo: Why puppets?
Steven: I was obsessed with Sesame Street... in college.
Maya Gallo: Yeah?
Steven: Don't laugh. You'd be surprised how much sense Cookie Monster makes when you're stoned.
Maya Gallo: While Oscar the Grouch just makes you paranoid.
Steven: Yeah. And Big Bird, he looks delicious.
Elliot DiMauro: Hi. I'm Elliot DiMauro.
Steven: Nice to meet you. I've heard a lot about you.
Elliot DiMauro: All good, I hope.
Steven: Yes, except about the part about you wishing you were a woman.
Dennis Finch: [after a veiled reference to Maya on Steven's show] I can't wait to see the show after you two have sex.
Dennis Finch: Told you that club was a bad investment.
Nina Van Horn: You know what's a bad investment? Letting your money sit in a bank while your dreams go unfulfilled. Well, maybe it didn't turn out like I planned, but I got on that merry-go-round and reached for that brass ring, and for one brief, shining, fiery moment, I was dazzling!
Dennis Finch: No insurance?
Nina Van Horn: [crying] Not a dime!
Maya Gallo: Is he saying what I think he's saying?
Dennis Finch: Don't worry. He just wants to nail Nina.
Nina Van Horn: Oh, that is so sweet! I really needed that today.
Elliot DiMauro: So, does this obnoxious place have a name?
Nina Van Horn: No. No name, no sign, no one will be able to find it. So, intrigued?
Steven: [as Ms. Panda] I'm sorry I was late.
Steven: [as Mr. Mayor] That's okay, Ms. Panda. I bought a present for you anyway.
Steven: [as Ms. Panda] Ooh, a shiny gold watch!
Steven: [as Mr. Mayor] Yes, now you won't be late again. Because when you're late, you make people wait, and that is no way to start a date. There is nothing more than I hate, hate, hate!
