Isaac's Office
ISAAC: (on the phone)I understand. I understand. I want to be kept posted throughout the day and night. (hangs up) They're called Quo Vadimus.
DANA : Quo Vadimus?
ISAAC: Yeah.
DANA: Where did they come from?
ISAAC: They put in a stock offering this morning at 6AM.
DANA: From out of nowhere?
ISAAC: Yeah.
DANA: From out of the clear blue sky?
ISAAC: That's where things come from.
DANA: What about MDI?
ISAAC: They're still in it.
DANA: MDI was our hope, Isaac.
ISAAC: They're still in it.
DANA: We want MDI.
ISAAC: They're still in it.
DANA: But now these other guys come along -- Platypus.
ISAAC: Quo Vadimus.
DANA: What do we know about them?
ISAAC: We're getting information. In the meantime--
DANA: I won't say anything.
ISAAC: Dana.
DANA: I won't say anything.
ISAAC: You say that in here.
DANA: Isaac--
ISAAC: You say that in here, but then you go out there--
DANA: When have I done that?
ISAAC: Every day you've been here.
DANA: I can't believe you've been keeping track.
ISAAC: We'll know something by the end of the day. Don't start a brushfire.
DANA: People can change, Isaac. I have incredible capacity for growth.
ISAAC: Excellent.

Sports Night: Season 2: Episode 21: La Forza Del Destino

Studio/Control Room
CASEY: With a month of big-league baseball behind us, it's time for what, Dan?
DAN: Predictions.
CASEY: It's time for predictions. Last year, Dan predicted that the Yankees would finish third in the American League East. Where'd they finish, Dan?
DAN: They won the world series.
CASEY: They won the world series. What do you got for us this year?
DAN: The team of Lord Baltimore, Casey. The Orioles will beat the American League like an old Persian rug. Then they'll go on to teach Ken Griffey's Cincinnati Reds a little lesson in humility.
CASEY: Dan says the Orioles, I say the Yankees. Dan says the Reds, I say the Mets. But, kids, whether you're a Mets fan, a Yankee fan, a Dodger fan, or a Red Sox fan, the one thing we can all agree on is what, Danny?
DAN: John Rocker's a doofus.
CASEY: John Rocker's a big honkin' doofus. That's all for us. We'll be back tomorrow night with more scores and highlights. This is day six of the Continental Corp fire sale, so if you're got 14 or 15 billion dollars in your passbook account, you can own this network. You've been watching Sports Night on CSC, have a good night.
DAN: Goodnight, Mom.

Dan & Casey's Office
CATHERINE: It's gonna be a hot place.
DAN: It's in New Jersey.
CATHERINE: It's gonna be the hot new place.
DAN: New Jersey's gonna be the hot new place?
CATHERINE: The restaurant's gonna be the hot new place.
DAN: The restaurant's in New Jersey.
CATHERINE: Right across the river.
DAN: Yeah, but across the river.
CATHERINE: Just on the other side.
DAN: Which makes it New Jersey.
CATHERINE: Dan, you gotta trust me.
DAN: Are other people gonna be there?
CATHERINE: Of course other people are gonna be there.
DAN: I mean other people.
CATHERINE: Yeah.
DAN: Who?
CATHERINE: Jay McInerney, Ivana Drumpf. Interestingly, the other girl who used to be married to Donald Drumpf. Whose name I can't--
DAN: Right.
CATHERINE: She, I grant you, is not A-list.
DAN: Drumpf's ex-wife?
CATHERINE: The one after Ivana whose name I can't remember.
DAN: I like her. I can't remember her name either, although I can tell you she was very good in "Will Rogers Follies."
CATHERINE: What did she do?
DAN: She sang, she danced, I think she twirled a rope. All I know is I was finally happy to see her realize her dream of the stage.
KIM: Five minutes to air. First team in the studio, please.

Sports Night: Season 2: Episode 19: April Is The Cruelest Month

Isaac's Office
DANA: This is idiotic.
BERT: Dana.
DANA: This is idiotic and I'll tell you what else, this is no way to run a network.
BERT: Don't call me idiotic.
DANA: Bert, I--
BERT: No, I'm a full-grown adult lady, and I've heard about you at these meetings. I am not other people. I am the network CFO.
DANA: This is not slow-pitch softball, it's the Olympics. And whatever you might think of my decorum, what I'm doing right now is my job.
BERT: I understand, Dana, but unless you can point to the tree upon which money is growing--
DANA: This sucks--
BERT: A casual observer would never guess you were from a good family, Dana.
ISAAC: Hey, let's leave families out of--
DANA: This is happening every week, Isaac.
RAY: Not every week.
DANA: Every damn week we're looking for change under sofa cushions. Meanwhile, Luther Sachs has just cashed a $740 million bonus.

Season 2: Episode 18: The Fall of Ryan O'Brian

Studio
CASEY: A 6' 7", 325-pound tackle out of Oregon State, Anthony Papajohn goes to Tampa Bay with the 22nd pick in the first round. Dan, I'm told at the Scouting Combine last winter that Papajohn ran the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. That's pretty fast for somebody his size.
DAN: That's pretty fast for someone anyone's size, though I suppose any play designed for an offensive lineman to run 40 yards is probably ill-conceived. Let's get back to the Garden where Kelly Kirkpatrick is standing by live. Kelly?

Isaac's Office
JEREMY: Fire me.
ISAAC: What?
JEREMY: Fire me. Do it now.
ISAAC: Why?
JEREMY: I'm a bad worker.
ISAAC: No, you're not.
JEREMY: I come late, I leave early.
ISAAC: You come early and you stay late. You come in on your days off.
JEREMY: And isn't that a little weird?
ISAAC: Oh, yeah.
JEREMY: Well, then, enough's enough, Isaac. Fire me.
ISAAC: I'm not firing you.
JEREMY: I say things behind your back.
ISAAC: No, you don't.
JEREMY: It's behind your back, Isaac. There's no way you'd know.
ISAAC: It'd get back to me.
JEREMY: No, these things are too terrible and I can't live with the guilt. I'll save you the trouble of firing me and simply offer my resignation.
ISAAC: I won't accept it.
JEREMY: You have to accept it.
ISAAC: You have a contract.
JEREMY: Then fire me.
ISAAC: No.
JEREMY: I'm a racist.
ISAAC: Really?
JEREMY: Yeah, I'm a terrible racist, but I've been in the closet all these years, and I've decided I need to live an honest life. And I think all those people with the different skin colors and the funny accents should go back where they came from and leave America to the white people who killed the Indians in the first place -- which they deserved.
ISAAC: Jeremy--
JEREMY: The whole country's being taken over by the blacks and the Jews.
ISAAC: You're Jewish.
JEREMY: Well, I've got to be stopped, Isaac.
ISAAC: Jeremy, what is the matter with you?
JEREMY: I'm totally screwed!

Dan and Casey sit at the bar. Dana and Natalie sit a table apart from them.

NATALIE: The bandage?
DANA: Yes.
NATALIE: No.
DANA: Except you just noticed it.
NATALIE: I didn't notice it.
DANA: I asked you, "Did you notice it?" and you said, "What, the bandage?"
NATALIE: I guessed at it.
DANA: Really?
NATALIE: You used powers of suggestion.
DANA: Really?
NATALIE: You have a bandage the size of a sleeping bag on your face, Dana, of course it's noticeable.
DANA: Yes.
NATALIE: But you look fine.

DAN: (patting stomach) This is Yehudi Menuhin.
CASEY: What?
DAN: When I pat my stomach like this, this is Yehudi Menuhin.
CASEY: Right. And what is that?
DAN: It's a signal.
CASEY: We need a signal for Yehudi Menuhin?

DAN: And a brotherly thing.
CASEY: Hey, I won't let you down.
DAN: What's the signal?
CASEY: Patting your stomach.
DAN: What's the signal for?
CASEY: Hmm. Uh...
DAN: Yehudi Menuhin.
CASEY: Well, look, maybe if you made a little playbook or something like that--
DAN: I did make a playbook, ok, pal? I did.

Season 2: Episode 14: And The Crowd Goes Wild

Studio/Control Room:
DAN: Adding to Milwaukee's woes, Tayshaun Reed was just 2 for 16 and 0 for 6 at the line. Commenting on his sub-par performance after the game, Reed said, "my head just wasn't in the game." Anyone knowing the location of Reed's head should contact the proper authorities.
Dana laughs.
DAVE: Stand 40 and 40A.
WILL: 40A standing.
CHRIS: Stand by.
DANA: "Contact the proper authorities."
NATALIE: Hmm?
DANA: Didn't you think that was funny?
NATALIE: I did think it was funny.
DANA: You didn't laugh.
NATALIE: What do you want from me? (into mic) Judy, we're 40 seconds fat, so keep it close, ok?
