Quotes

Clair Huxtable: [as a fast-talking saleswoman to Theo and Cockroach] Gentlemen, welcome to Amanda's Furniture City. Where money talks and nobody walks, if you like it you touch it, if you break it you buy it, if you don't see it we don't have it but we will get it, now what can I do for you?
