Maxwell Gridley: [about Josie's boyfriend] So, who's the lucky guy?
Josie Mayfield: [catching the bottle of water Gridley throws to her] Ooh, thank you. Ah, he is an executive headhunter.
Maxwell Gridley: Ouch. And what do your folks think of this boyfriend?
Josie Mayfield: You know my Dad. He doesn't think anybody's good enough for me.
Maxwell Gridley: I know he didn't think I was good enough for you.
Josie Mayfield: Don't feel bad. Richard has everything that's on my father's checklist, and he still doesn't approve.
Maxwell Gridley: Ah, the Mayfield checklist: good job, good family, good manners... good-bye.
Josie Mayfield: Right.
Maxwell Gridley: Well, I'm just going to come out and say it - you know why your Dad's repulsed by this guy...
Josie Mayfield: I never said he was repulsed.
Maxwell Gridley: Look, it's his job. No father wants his daughter dating a cannibal in a suit.
Josie Mayfield: He's not a cannibal. He is a headhunter.
Maxwell Gridley: What's the difference?
Josie Mayfield: Richard places clients in employment positions, and a cannibal chops people up and eats them for dinner.
Maxwell Gridley: Tomayto/tomahto.
Claire Mayfield: [exasperated] What is this? We thought you were still seeing that Richard person.
Josie Mayfield: Well, you didn't approve of Richard, so I started seeing other people. He's on the back burner right now.
Joseph Mayfield: And Maxwell Gridley is on the front burner?
Josie Mayfield: [adamantly] Yes. I ran into him while I was out jogging, and we have a history together. He makes me laugh. He has a very contagious outlook on life.
Claire Mayfield: [somewhat under her breath] Let's hope that's all that's contagious.
