Larry Kean: [meeting Rossi in a dark parking garage] I could lose my job if I were seen with you.
Joe Rossi: Who's gonna see you? I can barely see you, Larry.
Liz Harrison: No, eh, I guess I mean it's kinda hard to get past the cliche's. But... L.A. is the only city where you see men on the streets wearing more jewelry than the women, huh?
Billie Newman: With cuter behinds, too.
Lou Grant: [Rossi is packing his stuff] Rossi, you're not leaving...
Joe Rossi: I'm leaving.
Lou Grant: You love it here!
Joe Rossi: I'm miserable here.
Lou Grant: You wouldn't love it if you weren't miserable.
Joe Rossi: She told him. She tipped him off about what was gonna come out. She is helping him beat us to the punch.
Lou Grant: Why do you think something like that?
Joe Rossi: Because how else would he find out?
Lou Grant: He would find out from somebody he knew in the D.A.'s Office, in the County Department of Health, in the Mayor's Office, in the Attorney General's Office, I'm running out of fingers, Rossi!
Lou Grant: I need to know what's going on between you and Archer Corwin.
Liz Harrison: He's... running of a re-election, and I'm covering the campaign.
Lou Grant: And beyond that?
Liz Harrison: What do you mean, beyond that?
Lou Grant: What do you think I mean, that you both belong to the book of the month club?
