Minister of Finance: Here is the Treasury Department's report, sir. I hope you'll find it clear.
Rufus T. Firefly: Clear? Huh. Why a four-year-old child could understand this report.

Rufus T. Firefly: Run out and find me a four-year-old child, I can't make head or tail of it.

Secretary of Labor: The Department of Labor wishes to note that the workers of Freedonia are demanding shorter hours.
Rufus T. Firefly: Very well, we'll give them shorter hours. We'll start by cutting their lunch hour to 20 minutes.

C.C. Baxter: Yeah... it's me.

C.C. Baxter

Just because I wear a uniform doesn't make me a girl scout.

Fran Kubelik

Premium-wise and billing-wise, we are eighteen percent ahead of last year, October-wise.

Kirkeby

Sylvia: You mean you bring other girls up here?
