Jerri Blank: I'm just having some cruel fun at your expense! Jeez, I thought you people had thicker skins than that. You know, fighting those tigers in the jungle and all.
Jerri Blank: Why doesn't anybody like me?

Roger Beekman: What's going on Geoffrey? I have work to do. Why aren't you doing it?

Jerri Blank: Are you the grief counselor?
Grief Counselor Peggy Callas: Oh, god, it never ends. Have a seat. I should tell you up front, each student gets ten minutes, that last student took fifteen, so you get five.
Jerri Blank: Well, that's not fair!
Grief Counselor Peggy Callas: Take it up with Les. He's the one that's frigid.
