Aaron Altman: And in the middle of all this, I started to think about the one thing that makes me feel really good and makes immediate sense... and it's you.

Aaron Altman: I'm going to stop right now. Except that I would give anything if you were two people, so that I could call up the one who's my friend and tell her about the one that I like so much.

Aaron Altman: Sorry... sex, tears... this must be the news.

Jane Craig: No, no, no it wasn't just the speech, the same thing happened with this guy. I have passed some line, some place. I am beginning to repel people I'm trying to seduce.

Jane Craig: Why do you say that?
Aaron Altman: Because nobody invites a bad looking idiot up to their bedroom.
