Oh yea!! We can be crazy together. I've always loved to memorize dialogue. There are some movies today, that if I watch them, I still can just sit there and say the dialogue right along with the characters. That's why people like us are involved in the film industry or somehow related. As Maddie would say:
"Addison, I don't know how your brain works." "Yeah, but ya gotta love the results."
I play the quote game too. Ha!!! We would start off with an actor or movie. Then you'd have to keep moving on to the next until you couldn't think of another one. Lots of fun to try and stump someone with that game. BTW, best of luck with the film academy!!

From Camille David: You took the words right out of my mouth. Maddie: Open up, I'll put 'em back.
From Knowing Her You sleep in a pen, Addison.
I find this kind of line so hilarious coming from Maddie. You expect this sort of thing from David so it is even funnier when she says them. And Cybill's delivery is impeccable. She definitely had great comedic timing which got overlooked because David got the lion's share of the one-liners.

Well, I think she probably would have decked him at that moment....but then right after she would have said, "Oh David, David, David...I'm sorry." And then they would just stare at each other, and then....
"Maybe it's not possible to know if you're ready for marriage. Maybe it's only possible to know if you're not."
--said just prior to Maddie returning to her own house in "I Am Curious."
After much soul-searching, Maddie prepares to make her fateful decision. I remember being quite choked up by that line in particular. Although we had all been waiting a long time for her to make that move--hooray, go for the right one!--we now see that this may not be as easy as it looks.
It had to be difficult for Maddie to give up the prospects of comfort and security. Sam wanted to settle down. Now, that must have provoked Maddie to wonder by contrast, especially knowing David's history, was David ever going to be that kind of man? Or, be that way again, I should say; he'd been burned before. Much later on, in "Father Knows Last," he does make his famous defense to her father, but at this earlier point you may see why Maddie would wonder.
She did care about Sam (and vice versa). They did have a history. Contrary to how Maddie was sometimes implied to be self-centered and not have feelings be important to her character, here she shows that's not what's going on under the surface at all. She does care, very much so, and she does not want to make the wrong decision. Yes, she is a serious person--but thisis something you have to take seriously!
Call her what you want for her skittishness about really becoming involved with David--how much worse would it have been for her to live a lie with Sam?
One of the reasons that the Walter storyline so riled the fans was that it completely erased every lesson Maddie learned here...but for the moment, freeze your thoughts at this earlier moment of the story, when the presentation of all the issues was done exactly right.
