Roy Biggins: ...And what if I can't?

Joe Montgomery Hackett: What, what are you doing, Faye? You got an idea?
Fay Evelyn Schlob Dumbly DeVay Cochran: [Mischievously] Maybe this body will do. People look very different when they pass on. Kingsbury was a recluse; no one's seen him in years! Now, let's see what we've got here. Pop the hood! [Brian opens the casket]... Well, this dame's not gonna cut it.
07x01 - Burnin' Down the House (1) Season 7 / Episode 1: - Burnin' Down the House (1)

Passenger: Excuse me, when do you think the next plane leaves for Boston? I'm on kind of a tight schedule.
Brian Michael Hackett: *You're* on a tight schedule? [snickers] *You're* on a tight schedule. I'm running this place single-handedly. I'm taking all the flights because Joe's on his honeymoon, I'm booking the reservations because Fay's on a seniors' cruise, I'm even doing all the pre-flight checks because Lowell's *also* on vacation. [shouting] But hell! You wanna take off now? We'll take off now! I've only been up for 28 hours straight! I was hoping to grab a cup of coffee, but hey! We got auto-pilot! [Calmer] Just do me a little favor: when you hear this sound [He blares like a horn]... wake me!
Passenger: [Frightened] No no no, please! Take your time, 'cause I can wait.
Brian Michael Hackett: That's more like it! [Calmer] And thank you for flying Sandpiper.

Brian Michael Hackett: Hey hey, so how was dinner last night, huh?
Antonio Scarpacci: Eh you know, Dominic, you know, he's changed a little.
Brian Michael Hackett: In what way?
Antonio Scarpacci: He's not exactly the humble sweet shoemaker he used to be. You know, he's uh... well he's...
Brian Michael Hackett: Euro-trash?
Antonio Scarpacci: Hey, it's my cousin your talking about. He's no Euro-trash. He's... it's just that he... he has no taste... he has no class... he has no socks.
06x24 - Et Tu, Antonio? Season 6 / Episode 24: - Et Tu, Antonio?

Brian Michael Hackett: Antonio, what's going on here, huh?
Antonio Scarpacci: What's going on is that I'm starting to have thoughts for Teresa that you should not have for your cousin's fiancee. Some of them you shouldn't have for your *own* fiancee.
06x24 - Et Tu, Antonio? Season 6 / Episode 24: - Et Tu, Antonio?

Antonio Scarpacci: What am I gonna do? I'm cooking dinner for her tonight in my apartment, we're gonna be all alone, I mean, who knows what could happen?
Brian Michael Hackett: Well, why do you think something would happen?
Antonio Scarpacci: Because, you know, I'm afraid I'm weak. I keep telling myself, "She's your cousin's fiancee, Antonio." But then I tell myself, "Shut up, Antonio! She's also the most beautiful woman you've ever seen."
06x24 - Et Tu, Antonio? Season 6 / Episode 24: - Et Tu, Antonio?

Brian Michael Hackett: Okay, let me just get this straight. You're worried because you're desperately attracted to this beautiful woman, and you think that she might want you too?
Antonio Scarpacci: Yes! Yes.
Brian Michael Hackett: Okay, okay. Well let me just put your mind at ease: when has this *ever* happened to you?
Antonio Scarpacci: Never.
Brian Michael Hackett: Exactly. See, you fall hopelessly in love with these women, they don't even know that you exist!
Antonio Scarpacci: [Hopeful] Wait a minute. I think you may be onto something here.
Brian Michael Hackett: You bet I am. I mean let's face it: when it comes to women, you're the strikeout king!
Antonio Scarpacci: I am!
Brian Michael Hackett: You have *zero* appeal!
Antonio Scarpacci: [Proudly] I really do.
Brian Michael Hackett: Who has a worse track record with women than you?
Antonio Scarpacci: Nobody!
Brian Michael Hackett: So what are the chances of her ever letting you *near* her?
Antonio Scarpacci: Bupkis!
Brian Michael Hackett: Exactly! So just relax, take a deep breath, and be yourself. Trust me: you'll have no problem keeping this woman away.
Antonio Scarpacci: You're right! You're right, I won't. I'm always selling myself short!
06x24 - Et Tu, Antonio? Season 6 / Episode 24: - Et Tu, Antonio?

Brian Michael Hackett: Good for you, Antonio. For the first time in your life, you know what you want and you're ready to go for it.
Antonio Scarpacci: You're right! I am. So what if she's my cousin's fiancee? [Despondently] Oh, my God, what am I saying? I can't do this. He's family! I would never be able to show my face in my village again.
Brian Michael Hackett: Yeah, you got a point there, you know? It wouldn't be worth it. Better off just forgetting about her and... you'll meet somebody else.
Antonio Scarpacci: [talking himself back into it] Who are you kidding? I'll never meet anyone like Teresa. I'm not exactly the kind of guy women dream of.
Brian Michael Hackett: You sure aren't.
Antonio Scarpacci: Got a dead end job.
Brian Michael Hackett: Yeah, you're going nowhere.
Antonio Scarpacci: When a woman like Teresa comes along, you've *got* to go for it! 'Cause ain't no way I'll meet anyone like her again.
Brian Michael Hackett: Not in *your* lifetime.
Antonio Scarpacci: Brian, you're a real friend. Thanks so much for not believing in me.
Brian Michael Hackett: Hey, don't thank *me* Antonio. They're *your* shortcomings.
06x24 - Et Tu, Antonio? Season 6 / Episode 24: - Et Tu, Antonio?

Teresa: Antonio, thank you.
Antonio Scarpacci: Is this what you want?
Teresa: Yes. And about last night...
Antonio Scarpacci: [Cutting her off] Last night, never happened.
Teresa: [Smiling] Yes it did. [She kisses his cheek. They part, smiling]

05x21 - Roy Crazy Season 5 / Episode 21: - Roy Crazy

Silvia, Roy's Ex-wife: I'm sorry, Roy. When I found out about him & his secretary, all I could think about was getting even by sleeping with the first guy I could find. I knew that would hurt him.

Silvia, Roy's Ex-wife: Cause I knew THAT would kill him!

Roy Biggins: Let me tell you something, Roy Biggins doesn't pay for it. The Roy Biggins corporation does.

Brian Michael Hackett: I needed pajamas. I wanted to see if they would fit. I can't very well walk around Alex's parents' house in my underwear, can I?
Joe Montgomery Hackett: [mockingly] No, that would look silly. Unlike a grown man with little kitties on his jammies.
Brian Michael Hackett: It's Christmas. The pickings were really slim. It was either these or, these with feet.

Helen Chapel: Brian...
Joe Montgomery Hackett: Yeah, c'mon - this is not funny! We gotta do something!
