Quotes

Sam Field: What do I have to do to get you to forgive me?
Zoey Russell: [nonchalantly, with an innocent wide-eyed but slightly crafty "I've got you over a barrel here, don't I?" smile] A **pony** would be nice...
Sam Field: [disbelievingly] A **PONY** - -?
Zoey Russell: [nods and shruggily raises her eyebrows in a casual "Well, you **asked**" manner]
Sam Field: [with a short mirthless chuckle] You're one heck of a negotiator.
[pauses to think about this]
Sam Field: I could use you with Del Campo...!
