Episode Quotes
Alan Shore: Twenty degrees starboard.
Denny Crane: Is that right or left?
Alan Shore: I mean port! No, port!
Denny Crane: Hey, I'm the Captain!
Alan Shore: Will you be quiet! It's right in front of us.

Denny Crane: Is that how you plan to try this case?
Alan Shore: Don't start with me, Denny. Alright? Do you have any idea how many people die every day from cigarettes?
Denny Crane: Oh, please, what else is new? Tobacco kills, big deal.
Alan Shore: Did you just say, "Big deal?"
Denny Crane: Well, it's old news.
Alan Shore: Well, first of all it's not just old news. It's absolutely current. The tobacco industry is more powerful today...
Denny Crane: It's boring!
Alan Shore: Well, have we all just been desensitized? Smoking kills. Whatever. We've all just gone numb.
