Olive: Can I ask you a question? If you loved me....
Alfredo: Yes?
Olive: And we could never, ever, ever touch. Wouldn't you eventually get over it and move on letting someone else have the slightest hope that you might move on to them?

Chuck: Mm-hmmm. Footloose and finger-free.

The expression “Like a rat in a candy store,” though slightly less popular, is equally true.

Narrator

It’s from the Pie Hole from across the street, as in “Shut your.” But one sweet whiff and people usually want to “Open their.”

Olive

The truth ain’t like puppies, a bunch of them running around, you pick your favorite. One truth… and it has come a knockin’.
