Cathy: Isn't it amazing how much post graduate work goes on in this town? Fred Williams: Stand up, Buster Howard: I am standing up. Fred Williams: If you had any guts you'd be taller! Fred Williams: [Slattery, the bartender, has just given Williams some good advice] You know something, Mr. Slattery? You know something, Mr. Slattery. Fred Williams: If there's one thing I hate it's guys who chippen out when the chicks are down. Fred Williams: I've had ti many martoonis.
