Jack

Philip Glossman: In this case, I guess you could call me the Governor’s all-around... troubleshooter.
Connie Kendall: Troublemaker, you mean.
Jack Allen: Connie. Have you offered either of these gentlemen anything to drink?
Connie Kendall: No.
Eugene Meltsner: I could come up with something in my chemistry set—for Mr. Glossman, I mean.
Jack Allen: Now children, let's be on our best behavior.

#327: “Moving Targets”

Jason Whittaker: I'm Jason Whittaker. Who're you?
Howard J. Weizel: My card.
Jason Whittaker: Howard J. WEa-zle.
Jack Allen: Uh, WI-zle.
Howard J. Weizel: Wi-ZEL, It's French.
Jason Whittaker: Attorney at law?
Howard J. Weizel: Correct. Give me back the card.

#306: “A Victim of Circumstance”

Jason Whittaker: That's Dad—never satisfied with one idea. He has to keep working at it until he's explored every nook and cranny.
Jack Allen: Something you obviously inherited. It seems to me you spent weeks trying to build a rocket ship that would take you to... where did you want to go?
Jason Whittaker: Ah, the planet Gilbatron in the Beakner galaxy.

#293: “A Code of Honor”

Jack Allen: You sure?
John Whittaker: Right down t' my socks.

#297: “Blackbeard's Treasure”

Jason Whittaker: But I happen to think she was wrong in this case.
Jack Allen: Oh, and you're the one who's going to tell parents they're wrong in how they raise their own children?
Jason Whittaker: No, no, of course not. But she was going after the Imagination Station!
Jack Allen: She was going after what you did to the Imagination Station!
Jason Whittaker: Oh, I get it now. This is because you think she's right.
Jack Allen: She's right inasmuch as you don't know what you're dealing with! You don't know what this'll lead to!

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Jack Allen: Well, I think that went as well as could be expected.
Eugene Meltsner: Would a nervous breakdown be suitable at this time?

#335: “Love is in the Air, Part 1”

Jack Allen: You Whittakers! Is there anyone you don't know?
Jason Whittaker: Um... no! Not really.

#378: “The Painting”

Cody Carper: "Reverend James Klinger. Circuit rider Arizona territory. Saved by grace." What's a circuit rider? Sounds like something in a computer.
Jack Allen: I guess it does at that. But back in the Old West, a circuit wasn't anything electronic—it was a trail.

#402: “Arizona Sunrise”

John Whittaker: Jack? What's wrong?
Jack Allen: I'm sorry, did I wake you?
John Whittaker: No, I had to get up to answer the door anyway.

#465: “The Triangle, Part 2”

Jack Allen: Bart, we can't continue this debate unless you follow the rules.
Bart Rathbone: Rules, schmules! This is a free country. Anybody should be able to do what they want! That's the difference between me and Riley. I'm into freedom and he's a, whaddayacall, an intolerant hatemonger.
Tom Riley: What?
Bart Rathbone: Did I stutter?
Jack Allen: Gentlemen, please.
Bryan Dern: Nah, let em go! This is getting good!

#287: “Tom for Mayor, Part 2”

Jack Allen: You met your friend's father and it didn't go very well. It happens. You'll probably never see him again anyways, so just shrug and go on.
Eugene Meltsner: Just shrug and go on! You jest, Mr. Allen! How can I simply circulate my shoulders and return to everyday activities when the father of the woman I—
Jack Allen: Yes, you were about to say?
Eugene Meltsner: I was about to say "the woman I—" ...Mr. Allen.
Jack Allen: You love her.
Eugene Meltsner: Indeed.

#322: “The Turning Point”

Jack Allen: Those two comments were probably just a coincidence of some sort, phrases from bumper stickers if I remember right.

#325: “Angels Unaware”

Jack Allen: Would you like to lead us in prayer, Eugene?
Eugene Meltsner: Delighted. Dearest Elohim: We know that you were with the army of Jehoshaphat in 2nd Chronicles 20: 1 and following, and when he prepared his army to battle the Ammonites, which were of a great multitude, you told them not to fear; and though the Hebrew is slightly ambiguous in a few of the verses in this passage, we know you tell us the same. And we remember this today when we battle the Ammonites of anxiety, the Jebusites of injustice, the Perizzites of pride and yea, the Syrians of sinfulness. Glorious Yahweh, we see in Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians how he uses eschatological references as the basis for hope that determines the nature of daily life, and in a sense, we should do the same. And we ask these things in the name of our precious Redeemer and Savior, Jesu Christe, Emmanu-el, i.e. “God with us.” Amen.
Jack Allen: O-kayyyy... I guess that qualifies as a blessing.

#339: “Do, For a Change”

Jason Whittaker: What TA-418 does is attach itself to the virus's DNA and cause it to adapt to anything—air, dirt, water... that's what makes it so contagious.
Jack Allen: And deadly. It's hard to believe that's even possible!
Jason Whittaker: I know. But look around you! This whole scheme has been one concentrated effort to get that mineral. Blackgaard has to be stopped, or he'll be able to sell the virus to anyone. He could hold entire nations hostage, and do who knows what with the rest of the mineral!
Jack Allen: Yes...
Jason Whittaker: You're acting awfully calm about all this.
Jack Allen: Calm? I'm terrified. But that can't stop us from doing what we have to do.

#334: “The Final Conflict”

Jack Allen: Do you have any dinner plans?
Joanne Allen : Yes.
Jack Allen: Oh.
Joanne Allen : You're picking me up at seven.
Jack Allen: Really? Oh! Okay...

#367: “The Decision”

Jason Whittaker: Look, why does it seem like we keep coming back to this same argument? I want to take action, and you want to do a fact-finding tour.
Jack Allen: Because recklessly taking action leads to unforeseen problems!

#327: “Moving Targets”

Richard Maxwell: <about Regis Blackgaard> That's why I'm here—to stop him.
Tom Riley: Uh-huh. Don't you mean to help him?
Jack Allen: Tom...!
Richard Maxwell: No, sir. I mean stop him! It's the least I can do.

#328: “Hard Losses”

Jack Allen: Hello, Jimmy. That's a lovely dress you have on, Donna.
Donna Barclay: Thank you.

#285: “George Under Pressure”

Jack Allen: You used to play around with codes when you were young, didn't you?
Jason Whittaker: Well, a little. Actually, you could say I still do. As a hobby.

#293: “A Code of Honor”

Jason Whittaker: Wow! Look at all these kids.
Jack Allen: Yeah, there's been a line to play your video game all day long.
Jason Whittaker: Oh, that's great! You know, I'm thinking about bringing out some more. I could do the whole Old Testament in video games. Set it up in chronological order. You know, David and Goliath, Jonah...

#296: “Red Wagons and Pink Flamingos”

Jack Allen: I pledge 12... uh...
Connie Kendall: Hurry, we're running out of time!
Jack Allen: Mugs! Yes, I pledge 12 mugs and they all say "World's Greatest Grandpa!"

#302: “Share and Share Alike”

Jack Allen: You know, when we first started talking about it, I thought we were just having a philosophical debate. I didn't believe you were going to follow up on it.
Jason Whittaker: I get tired of discussing and debating. I like to take action. Why not try some of the things we talk about?
Jack Allen: Because things can't go terribly wrong if we talk.

#318: “A Touch of Healing, Part 1”

Jason Whittaker: Come on, Jack; give me some credit, will you? I reprogrammed those machines to include learning and you approved of them.
Jack Allen: Sure. I was for anything that would help the kids and turn down the volume. But we still don't know how much learning the kids are doing when they're dazzled by lights and noise! Don't you get my point? We don't know! And using the kids here as—as—as guinea pigs—
Jason Whittaker: Guinea pigs?!
Jack Allen: Yes, for what we don't know, it's dangerous! And that's why I'm against the arcade games and what you've done to the Imagination Station.
Jason Whittaker: Okay, okay. Your opinions are duly noted.
Jack Allen: Meaning you haven't heard a word I've said. Oh, Jason...

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

PJ Manning: Neato. This'll be like working where they hid the ark of the covenant.
Jack Allen: I doubt you'll find that in here.
Joanne Allen: Then again, you never know with this place. Think you can handle it, PJ?
PJ Manning: Are you kidding? From this point on PJ stands for "professional and judicious."

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Jason Whittaker: I could say I'm a kumquat, but that doesn't make me one.
Jack Allen: But it's obvious you're not a kumquat.

#407: “Malachi's Message, Part 2”

Jack Allen: You don't think they'd try to solve this mystery on their own do you?
Eugene Meltsner: Hmmm. Two boys, one with hyper imagination.
Jack Allen: Eugene we have to find those boys. If the man they're looking for is still alive and they find him, who knows what he'll do to them?

#414: “Buried Sin”

Jack Allen: Dwayne, are you sure about this? Bart's schemes have a way of backfiring.

#417: “Not-So-Trivial Pursuits”

Joanne Allen: So how have things been around here, Jason?
Jason Whittaker: You know Odyssey. Same old, same old.
Jack Allen: That's what I like about it.

#378: “The Painting”

Jack Allen: Odyssey Coyotes, meet your new coach.
Connie Kendall: Hi, everybody!

#358: “The Secret Weapon”

Jason Whittaker: I'm just admiring the new skylight we put in the roof.
Jack Allen: Jason, it's smoked glass. You can't really see anything.
Jason Whittaker: Ah, ah not true. You can see the glow of the moon as its incandescent rays bathe the office with an eerie somnambulance.
Jack Allen: Have you been talking to Eugene again?

#306: “A Victim of Circumstance”

Jason Whittaker: Jack! Where did you come from?
Jack Allen: I followed you up the stairs. You really oughta pay more attention to what's going on around you, Jason.

#367: “The Decision”

Cody Carper: Whoa! The Apaches killed Reverend Klinger's mother?
Jack Allen: That's what it says, Cody.
Cody Carper: And he still helped them?
Jack Allen: Apparently so. That's the power of God's love. It can change the heart of someone like Reese and compel a man to help the people who killed his family.
Cody Carper: Yeah.

#402: “Arizona Sunrise”

Jack Allen: I never knew Bart was such a good tap dancer!
Connie Kendall: You said it!

#312: “Rewards in Full”

Jack Allen: Whit, what's going on here? People are breaking and entering, and disappearing and dying. What is this all about?
John Whittaker: That's what I'm trying to find out. That package from Arthur Dent should have some answers.

#486: “Plan B, Part 3: Cross-fire”

Jack Allen: You just never know what's going to happen next around here.

#353: “A Question About Tasha”

Eugene Meltsner: I want you to know that there is absolutely nothing between Connie and myself... other than a basic, sometimes-adversarial friendship!
Connie Kendall: Yeah!
Eugene Meltsner: There can't be! I've been waiting for you and she has a crush on Jason! Honest! It was as innocent as... it... could be. Oops.
Jack Allen: <pats Eugene on the back> Nicely done, Eugene.
Connie Kendall: I never said I had a crush on Jason! I don't know where you get this stuff! The idea of a crush never even... I mean... THANKS A LOT, EUGENE!!

#335: “Love is in the Air, Part 1”

Jack Allen: Did you know Maxwell's Flower shop is for sale?
Bernard Walton: Now Jack, how do you get from Bobby's chocolate hand prints to Maxwell's Flower Shop?
Connie Kendall: Turn left on 8th street?

#372: “For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll, Part 1”

Jack Allen: So, you're... taking over the Israelites.
Jason Whittaker: Yeah.
Jack Allen: Well, I can't stop you... any more than I've been able to stop you from anything you've done over the past few months.
Jason Whittaker: Well, you always said I was stubborn like Dad.
Jack Allen: <chuckles sadly> Stubborn, yes... but not like your dad.

#327: “Moving Targets”

Jack Allen: Anything interesting in the newspaper this morning?
Connie Kendall: Charlie Brown told Snoopy that he's getting a new food dish, but other than that...
Jack Allen: I meant on the front page.

#293: “A Code of Honor”

PJ Manning: Can you say "wicked awesome cool," Mr. Allen?
Jack Allen: I'm afraid I might sprain something. But that's great, PJ.

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Jack Allen: Owning my own shop is something I've wanted to do for a long time. But not any shop. It has to be the right kind, something I can sink my teeth into.
Connie Kendall: Hey Biffy's Burger Joint's up for sale. You could really "sink your teeth" into that!
Bernard Walton: Only if you wanted food poisoning.

#372: “For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll, Part 1”

Jack Allen: What is all this Jason?
Jason Whittaker: Well, Dad called it a... uh... belated wedding-slash-congratulations-on-your-new-business-slash-welcome-home gift!

#378: “The Painting”

Jack Allen: Are you sure you're up to it?
Connie Kendall: Oh, you just wait. You'll see. We're going to put together one of the best seasons the Coyotes have ever had. We'll be scoring touchdowns left and right!
Jack Allen: Connie, that's um...
Connie Kendall: Football. I know. I was just seeing if you were listening.

#358: “The Secret Weapon”

Jack Allen: That's another reason for sharing: because Jesus asks us to.

#302: “Share and Share Alike”

Danny Schmidt: I just did something stupid at Jeff's and kind of learned the hard way that my parents were right.
Jack Allen: Well, at least you learned.

#303: “All the Difference in the World”

Jack Allen: Uh oh. I know that tone. It's the same tone you used when you caught me playing matador with your father's bull.
Emily Allen: You needed some straight talking then, and you need some straight talking now.

#465: “The Triangle, Part 2”

Jason Whittaker: Tasha and I are engaged! <crashing noise from kitchen>
Jason Whittaker: Oh boy, she's in the kitchen, isn't she?
Jack Allen: Yeah.
Eugene Meltsner: Yes.
Jason Whittaker: Oh, no.
Connie Kendall: Hi guys, I dropped some pots and pans. I'll... I'll pick them up after I go... do something else.
Jason Whittaker: Look, Connie
Eugene Meltsner: I believe I will go to the Kids Radio studio.
Jack Allen: Coward.

#336: “Love is in the Air, Part 2”

Connie Kendall: What do you think they're up to?
Eugene Meltsner: Ah, establishing a plausible and rational explanation to this mystery. I hope.
Jack Allen: If they can.
Connie Kendall: Jack, you're beginning to sound like you believe he's really an angel.

#407: “Malachi's Message, Part 2”

Jack Allen: Alright, Bart. What do you really want?
Bart Rathbone: I'll write it down.
Jack Allen: Probably your first born child.
Edwin Blackgaard: Oh, good. I'm a bachelor. Although I suppose he could take Shakespeare.

#359: “The Merchant of Odyssey”

Jack Allen: I said earlier that something drastic would have to happen to move your relationship with Katrina. I think the same is true for your relationship with Jesus.
Eugene Meltsner: When you say drastic, what specifically do you mean?
Jack Allen: I don't know. I'm just thinking out loud. But it could be anything.

#322: “The Turning Point”

Jason Whittaker: Why are you so afraid of this new technology? I mean, it's like a miracle of science!
Jack Allen: Because there are no such things as miracles of science.

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Jack Allen: They seem like a nice couple. I hope they get to the hospital—duh, the, the, the stable, quickly!

#294: “Unto Us a Child Is Born”

Eugene Meltsner: We were discussing the historical development of necrology, and its impact on Etruscan archaeology!
Jack Allen: Eugene, Eugene. A little sensitivity, hmm?

#320: “Where Is Thy Sting?”

Jack Allen: (reading letter to Whit from Clara) I'm glad you're still being brave, and remembering me, even as I remember you. You and Mr. Allen were right for giving me up to the Portlands...I couldn't be happier. So if you ever see Mr. Allen again and he still feels bad, you know what to tell him. (to Whit) What?
John Whittaker: (chuckles) Go away, bad dream. Boo.

#365: “Clara”

Jack Allen: By the way, how did PJ do with the cataloging today?
Joanne Allen: You didn't see any of his work yet?
Jack Allen: I'm afraid not. Though he did stop in to say that PJ now stood for Peanut Butter and Jelly or something like that.

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Jack Allen: Hang on, Rodney. Help's on the way. Boy, you've really done it this time.

#306: “A Victim of Circumstance”

Jack Allen: So do you think you might have a story for History Day now?
Cody Carper: Absolutely, Mr. Allen. This is a story that needs to be told.

#402: “Arizona Sunrise”

Robert Mitchell: Oh, you know what I mean. Doesn't she smell better than usual, Jack?
Jack Allen: Hm, yes, yes... Oh no, no! Well, it's hard to tell with all this, uh, ice cream!

#471: “Fifteen Minutes”

Jack Allen: Well, it's the oddest thing.
Joanne Allen : What is?
Jack Allen: I think I've seen him before.
Joanne Allen : You have? Where?
Jack Allen: In my dreams.
Connie Kendall: Whoa!

#407: “Malachi's Message, Part 2”

Jack Allen: I'm not here to save the world, Doctor. I'm not here to save Odyssey or even Whit's End. I'm here for you—for your soul. That's the only thing that matters right now—not money or power or computer programs or viruses or world terrorism... it all comes down to your soul. Why don't you put down the detonator and give yourself up so you'll have time to redeem your soul?
Regis Blackgaard: The flaw in your proposal is that you assume my soul is redeemable. It isn't. I auctioned it off years ago.
Jack Allen: Then you sold yourself cheap. Your soul is worth the life of Jesus Christ. To give it to anyone else is an incredible waste.

#334: “The Final Conflict”

Connie Kendall: Why do you keep calling him Uncle Jack?
Jason Whittaker: Because he's always been like an uncle to me, but he thinks I'm too old to call him "Uncle" now...maybe he's right. Are you right right, Uncle Jack?
Jack Allen: Huh?

#293: “A Code of Honor”

Jack Allen: So you have no idea what the research involves?
Millie Shanks: When I asked Armitage, all he would say was that it would change our society.
Joanne Allen: For better or for worse?
Millie Shanks: Time will tell, I suppose. But if Andromeda has anything to do with it, I would expect the worst.

#485: “Plan B, Part 2: Collision Course”

Jack Allen: So Whit, tonight's the night you are going to ask her?
John Whittaker: It is, Jack. I wrote a poem to Jenny and put it in a bottle.
Jack Allen: Ahh, and it'll wash up in her bathtub!
John Whittaker: Very funny.

#609: “Prequels of Love”

Jason Whittaker: I need to pick up Tasha's wedding present while she's distracted. I called it in before I went to the airport.
Jack Allen: Called it in? What is it — a pizza?

#353: “A Question About Tasha”

John Whittaker: The two of you should take a look at this.
Jack Allen: What is it?
John Whittaker: Our miracle!

#637: “The Forgotten Deed”

Jack Allen: You know she belongs in a two-parent home. She needs a daddy and a mommy--something you can't give her.
John Whittaker: I can give her the next best thing!
Jack Allen: Oh, listen to yourself. You're going against every principle you've ever taught! And why? Because of something you want! Is that what's best for Clara, Whit? Are you thinking about her...or just about yourself?

#365: “Clara”

Jack Allen: We need to talk about the work you've done with the antiques. I'm glad you've been enjoying what you're doing...
PJ Manning: Enjoying it? Are you kidding? PJ now stands for "pizza and joviality." I can hardly get to sleep at night I'm having so much fun.

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Joanne Allen: What? What's wrong?
Jack Allen: Well, according to this information, G. Winston Smith may be a thief.

#378: “The Painting”

Jack Allen: Hey, guys! Let's hear it for the Coyote's real secret weapons: Sam Johnson and Connie Kendall!

#358: “The Secret Weapon”

Regis Blackgaard: So I suggest you run for your life.
Jack Allen: You don't want to kill me.
Regis Blackgaard: Oh, you fool! Why wouldn't I?! Goodbye, Jack Allen!

#334: “The Final Conflict”

Jason Whittaker: Of course, I didn't expect us to get lost for an hour.
Jack Allen: It's these small back roads. You have the map; where are we going?
Jason Whittaker: I can't tell. This map only has the major roads. Watch out for that... oof! Pot hole.

#293: “A Code of Honor”

Jack Allen: Oh, what a tangled web we weave...
Edwin Blackgaard: When first we practice to deceive!

#359: “The Merchant of Odyssey”

Jack Allen: Listen to me, Zachary: you can do as your mother says and go out, or you can be carried out. It's your choice.

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Jack Allen: My name is Jack Allen, and by a sudden lapse of reason, I was the one both candidates agreed should moderate tonight’s debate.

#287: “Tom for Mayor, Part 2”

Jack Allen: You're fortunate you only swallowed a little of that paint—though what in the world made you paint your braces is beyond me!
Lawrence Hodges: Well, you said to use my imagination to make my braces fun!
Jack Allen: Well, but Lawrence, I didn't mean disconnecting your brain! How could you be so old and not know better?

#308: “Subject Yourself”

Jason Whittaker: So, aren't you gonna say it?
Jack Allen: Say what?
Jason Whittaker: I told you so.
Jack Allen: OK. I told you so.
Jason Whittaker: You didn't have to say it.

#333: “The Last Resort”

Joanne Allen: It's not fair. Are you thinking of eloping?
Jack Allen: It's not polite to stand there smiling like that. Eugene? Katrina?

#393: “Wrapped Around Your Finger”

Jack Allen: Oh no. They're following us!
Cab Driver: They're following us? Awesome! Do you want me to lose 'em?
Jack Allen: Yes, yes. Uh, put the pedal to the metal!
Cab Driver: I've been waiting my entire life for someone to say that!

#485: “Plan B, Part 2: Collision Course”

Bernard Walton: I just don't get why he would do all this—why anyone would!
Jack Allen: I know. It's hard to understand how a mind like Doctor Blackgaard's worked. I'd hoped to help him change it—one last chance. But a soul so corrupted, so saturated in evil, can only come to one end without Jesus. It's destined for the final conflict... and an eternity without God.

#334: “The Final Conflict”

Courtney Vincent: We have forty-seven different kinds of cookies.
Jack Allen: Forty-seven? Oh, boy...maybe I should just pull up a chair.

#313: “Top This!”

Jack Allen: The truth is, I think we have the question turned around. Maybe the better question is, all things considered, why don't things like this happen more often?
Connie Kendall: What do you mean?
Jack Allen: Well, it's a fallen world—a crazy world, in fact. We're subject to disease, death, handicaps, and accidents... it's a wonder things aren't worse than they are.

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Jack Allen: I was wondering if you ever heard of a group called the Israelites.
Emma Douglas: The who?
Jack Allen: The Israelites.
Emma Douglas: Course I have.
Jack Allen: Ah, good.
Emma Douglas: They're all through the Old Testament. Don't you ever read your Bible?

#293: “A Code of Honor”

Jack Allen: I thought I heard a sandwich calling my name.

#637: “The Forgotten Deed”

Jack Allen: Our society places a great deal of importance on "individual rights." It seems a day doesn’t go by that someone isn’t telling us they have the right to do something. And, it’s true. Rights are very important. But there’s a flip side to them that is hardly ever discussed these days. It’s called responsibility. As the old song says, you can’t have one without the other! But these days, people are trying to. And the sad thing is, they’re succeeding. They’ve created a whole new class for themselves called, 'victims." "It’s not my fault," they say, 'Don’t blame me, I’m a victim! It was the way I was raised! It was the neighborhood I grew up in. I’m not responsible." And so, we excuse. And even reward all sorts of bad behavior. And little by little, our society decays and crumbles. Don’t let that happen. You can stop it! You, me, we, the people. We make the laws. We can stop the decay. We just have to have the courage to do it.

#306: “A Victim of Circumstance”

Connie Kendall: Y'know, I've had faith when I've been praying for her to be healed. But it hasn't made a difference.
Jack Allen: Hasn't it? Are you so sure?
Connie Kendall: She's still dying.
Jack Allen: Oh, but for a Christian, isn't dying possibly another kind of healing? I mean, it's not like this world is the be-all and end-all of everything. Sometimes there's a greater healing than we expect. But that's God's business.
Connie Kendall: If it's His business, why do we bother to pray?
Jack Allen: Because He tells us to. If we don't pray, how can we become more in tune with the mind of God—to feel His comfort even if we don't get what we want? Praying is the only way I know how.

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Connie Kendall: Why were you hiding in that booth?
Eugene Meltsner: He wasn't!
Tom Riley: He wasn't.
Connie Kendall: He wasn't? Well, what—you weren't?
Jack Allen: No, I weren't. Uh, I wasn't!

#281: “...But Not Forgotten”

Jack Allen: If it's all right, I have to run some errands in Connersville.

#283: “A Book by Its Cover”

Jason Whittaker: Jack, why didn't you just tie me up and lock me in a closet??
Jack Allen: I didn't realize that was an option.

#333: “The Last Resort”

Connie Kendall: Jack?
Jack Allen: Yes, Connie?
Connie Kendall: I never really asked you before, but... can I have a hug?
Jack Allen: Oh, Connie... of course you can.

#319: “A Touch of Healing, Part 2”

Jack Allen: Considering how much effort we put into blocking God out with all our noise, it's no surprise that we have to work that much harder to be with him in silence.

#366: “Solitary Refinement”

Jack Allen: It's nice to meet you all. I'm Jack, Jack Allen.

#280: “Gone...”

Jack Allen: I also know that whenever we're tested, God is also there to give us strength. He never calls us to something He won't empower us to do.

#285: “George Under Pressure”



Joanne

Joanne Allen: We're glad you're so excited. We're happy to have you.
PJ Manning: Excited nothing. PJ now stands for "perfectly joyful."

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Jack Allen: Do you have any dinner plans?
Joanne Allen : Yes.
Jack Allen: Oh.
Joanne Allen : You're picking me up at seven.
Jack Allen: Really? Oh! Okay...

#367: “The Decision”

Connie Kendall: I can't believe you like this gift shop junk.
Joanne Allen: Not me, it's Jack. The tackier the better.

#530: “Silver Lining”

Joanne Allen: Rose?
Agnes Riley: It's you!
Tom Riley: It is? But that's...
John Whittaker: That's Joanne Allen?!

#512: “The Pact, Part 2”

Connie Kendall: I think I can understand why business is bad.
Joanne Allen: And where's the cook? Do you think she does it all herself?

#527: “Black Clouds”

PJ Manning: Neato. This'll be like working where they hid the ark of the covenant.
Jack Allen: I doubt you'll find that in here.
Joanne Allen: Then again, you never know with this place. Think you can handle it, PJ?
PJ Manning: Are you kidding? From this point on PJ stands for "professional and judicious."

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Joanne Allen: So how have things been around here, Jason?
Jason Whittaker: You know Odyssey. Same old, same old.
Jack Allen: That's what I like about it.

#378: “The Painting”

John Whittaker: I'm curious, Joanne. Rose hasn't met with you for forty years. Why did you come today?
Joanne Allen: Because I promised I would. I've been coming every ten years and each time I came I hoped she'd be here. And now she is. Rose, it means so much to see you again.
Agnes Riley: Yes, you too, Jo.

#512: “The Pact, Part 2”

Connie Kendall: Hey, how can you rearrange your shop at a time like this?
Joanne Allen: At a time like what?
Connie Kendall: Isn't it obvious? I'm losing Mitch!

#526: “Seeing Red”

Joanne Allen: So how was dinner last night? Did Mitch like the rhyming theme?
Connie Kendall: No, it was awful. I worked all day on the souffle, and then he burned his mouth on the flambe. So I said to drink the Monet display, but he said 'no, way.' <sigh> We never even got to the sorbet.
Joanne Allen: Hmm. Bad day.
Janelle Bourland: Okay!

#533: “Something Blue, Part 1”

Tom Riley: Agnes, no wonder you took such a shine to Mandy.
Joanne Allen: What do you mean?
John Whittaker: Joanne, you looked exactly like Mandy when you were ten!

Jack Allen: So you have no idea what the research involves?
Millie Shanks: When I asked Armitage, all he would say was that it would change our society.
Joanne Allen: For better or for worse?
Millie Shanks: Time will tell, I suppose. But if Andromeda has anything to do with it, I would expect the worst.

#485: “Plan B, Part 2: Collision Course”

Jack Allen: By the way, how did PJ do with the cataloging today?
Joanne Allen: You didn't see any of his work yet?
Jack Allen: I'm afraid not. Though he did stop in to say that PJ now stood for Peanut Butter and Jelly or something like that.

#556: “And That's the Truth”

Jack Allen: Well, it's the oddest thing.
Joanne Allen : What is?
Jack Allen: I think I've seen him before.
Joanne Allen : You have? Where?
Jack Allen: In my dreams.
Connie Kendall: Whoa!

#407: “Malachi's Message, Part 2”

Joanne Allen: What? What's wrong?
Jack Allen: Well, according to this information, G. Winston Smith may be a thief.

#378: “The Painting”

Joanne Allen: It's not fair. Are you thinking of eloping?
Jack Allen: It's not polite to stand there smiling like that. Eugene? Katrina?

#393: “Wrapped Around Your Finger”

PJ Manning: You could fit my whole family in that bathtub!
Joanne Allen: You have a big family?
PJ Manning: Nah. I'm an only child. But I have a split personality.

Emily

Jack Allen: Uh oh. I know that tone. It's the same tone you used when you caught me playing matador with your father's bull.
Emily Allen: You needed some straight talking then, and you need some straight talking now.
