  • J.C. Wiatt: Now look. There is nothing in the world to get uptight about. We are two summa cum laudes. We can handle one little baby for eight hours.

  • Stockboy: [pushing cart overflowing with toys to J.C.'s taxi; J.C. holds Elizabeth] Believe me, J.C., you made the right choice. You're going to be a partner, for Christ's sake - your career comes first. Look at it this way.

    J.C. Wiatt: Yeah.

    Stockboy: [stops cart next to taxi] You spend a few days with her, you got her all these toys, $1700 worth of clothes. Come on, that's not a bad haul, if you ask me.

  • Doctor Jeff Cooper: You and me are probably the only two people under 60 in Hadleyville County so we might as well make the best of it.

    J.C. Wiatt: I appreciate you taking time to chat, but I'm not in the mood for idle conversation. So if it should happen again, I think we should both try to ignore each other, 'cos I'm not one of your students who's gonna faint every time you say hello. I am a tough, cold career woman who has absolutely nothing in common with a veterinarian from Hadleyville. All I have on my mind, at this point in my life, is to get out of this moth-eaten town and nothing here, including you *Doctor Charm*, holds any interest for me whatsoever. So what do you think about that?
