-"Keith: "Yes...yes, indeed. Mother knows best. Like the saying goes, mother knows best...(LOOKS UP WITH A SMILE) Mama warned me about this, Laurie. Yes, she did. She told me never to see you again...not after that first night when you and your mother came to visit. That was a test night, you see...an experiment. To find out whether or not I was going to get away with it. Whether you or your mother was going to recognize me right off the bat. Well, you didn't. But mama said, you can never see Laurie Karr again! Because if you do...one of these days she's going to know who you are...she's going to remember your eyes, or the tone of your voice...or your laugh...(HE CHUCKLES AND SIPS HIS DRINK) And she was right, wasn't she?"
Laurie: "Oh, God...no" (SHE BACKS UP)
Keith: (WITH JONAH'S SOUTHERN ACCENT) "Come on, honey chile, don't look at me that way. You were crazy about 'ol Jonah once. Who knows. Maybe you'll like his buddy Keith Whitney, too."
