Episode Quotes
Harry Anderson: And as my first official act as a newly-married judge, I hereby declare the new page uniforms at NBC illegal!
Tracy: I added that. I went upstairs, and I told 'em if you don't bring back the old uniforms, I refuse to play the role of Mac in Universal's upcoming Night Court movie.
Charles Robinson: What's that now?

Jack: Lemon, I ran into your friend, Claire, on the elevator. She is very pretty.
Liz: No, no, no, no. She's nuts when it comes to guys. We had a name for her back in Chicago. It's, uh, too rude to say out loud.
(Liz writes on the back of a newspaper)
Jack: "Crazyputty?"

Kenneth: Thank you, Mr. Jordan! This is the greatest day of my life! First, I find that quarter this morning...
Charles Robinson: Um, I lost a quarter earlier.

Liz: No, listen to me. She's not fun, she's just crazy. Like, grab a cop's gun crazy.
Jack: Lemon, having known Claire for a very enjoyable 20 minutes and you for what feels like infinity. I'm going to go with Claire on this one.

Liz: Hey, I just got a call from security.
Jenna: That's ridiculous! Why would I steal a file from Personnel?
Liz: What?

Liz: Hey, did you see our shout-out in Variety? They called us a comedy show!

Harry Anderson: Markie, will you do me the honor of becoming my fake wife so we can get our money and get the hell out of here?

Markie Post: (to Harry Anderson) You know, you always thought that you were better than me because you were nominated for Emmys. Well, I would've been nominated, too, but I was just too hot to be taken seriously!

Harry Anderson was nominated for three Best Actor Emmy awards (1985, 1986 and 1987) for his work on Night Court. While supporting actresses Selma Diamond and Paula Kelly were nominated as well, Markie Post never received an Emmy nomination.
