* CC: Isn’t it a little sedate for you Nanny Fine? You don’t look like you’re trying to get a sailor to buy you a cocktail.
* Max: Well Miss Fine, it’s refreshing to have you on my side for a change.
* Sylvia: A mink is not an animal, it’s a rodent. If it was up in the attic, you’d be the first one to call Terminex.
* Fran: I’m a grown woman, you can’t use guilt on me anymore to get what you want.
* Max: You can have any opinion you like Maggie, just don’t have it in the park after dark.
