Quotes

Charlie Hume: Look, if I rented a car downtown, I'd have to turn it in there, I'd have to take a bus home, I'd have to get Marion to drive me over to the garage, she's hardly ever home before they call. You see?
Lou Grant: Yeah, sure.
Charlie Hume: So, I really had no choice, Lou.
Lou Grant: You had lots of choices, Charlie. They're big and yellow and they're called cabs!
