Episode Quotes
Sam: I’m ready to leap...now!
(He leaps)

Sam: I am a man, and I’ll prove it to you.

Buddy: You had a brother?
Sam: Does a brother tell a sister what he did looking at his first centerfold?

Al: You can lower it.
Sam: I'm a woman!
Al: And I'm in love!

Gloria: Oh, that time of the month huh?

Sam: Don't even start unless you want to eat your teeth for lunch.

Sam: I have to go...to the ladies' room.
