FBI Agent Pepper: The file room. A room with files. Say you took one of them out.
FBI Agent Budge: Took it where?
FBI Agent Pepper: Doesn't matter. Let's say you took one of the files out. Is it still the file room?
FBI Agent Budge: Pizza today right? In the cafeteria? Or is it meatloaf?
FBI Agent Budge: Now I'm saying that you and I both agree that the file room minus one file is still the file room. Now, let's say you took another one out, and then another. If the file room minus one file is still the file room, and you keep subtracting one at a time, you could end up with zero files. I'm saying logically. Or even negative files, and it would still...
FBI Agent Budge: How do you have negative files?
FBI Agent Pepper: No, I'm just, logically I'm saying.
FBI Agent Budge: Cept no one is taking files, they just bring more.
FBI Agent Pepper: What about a cemetery? I mean, remove one body from a cemetery, it's still a cemetery, but a cemetery with no bodies, what's that?
FBI Agent Budge: Condos.
Bill Oswalt: Look, you can't... that's just how it is, sometimes. Life. You know, you go to bed unsatisfied. They're calling the lottery numbers on the tv and you get the first few and already in your mind you're buying a jet or a fjord or whatever, but it's just not meant to be. It's just not meant to be.
Ida Thurman: Heard you got some flowers.
Molly Solverson: Some people do love to flap their lips.
Ida Thurman: More than once what I heard.
Molly Solverson: Well, there's a suitor is all I'm prepared to say.
Ida Thurman: Vern was so bad at courtship. One time, he gave me a bouquet of poison ivy. Picked it himself.
Molly Solverson: He's up in Duluth, my gentleman. Has a daughter.
Ida Thurman: What's his name?
Molly Solverson: I call him Sergio. He's a pirate I think.
Ida Thurman: Very funny, you.
Gus Grimly: So um, I saw in the paper this morning the Logging Festival is coming up, over in your neck of the uh... and Greta, she really likes going to that.
Molly Solverson: Yeah, me too.
Gus Grimly: Yeah? Good. Good. Well maybe uh, well, I mean, maybe we'll see you there.
Molly Solverson: Yeah, a certainty if we go together.
Gus Grimly: Yeah. Yeah, you're right about that. And when you're right, you're right.
Kitty Nygaard: I was Miss Hubbard County for Pete's sake. You don't cheat on Miss Hubbard County.
