  • Liz: Maybe Donald is Tracy's son, because maybe Tracy is sixty. Pete: No, that's ridiculous. Liz: Think about it: he can't rap, he has diabetes, a lot of his friends are dead— Pete: He falls asleep in chairs, he doesn't know how to use a computer, he's always mad at the TV— Toofer: His favorite show is NCIS. Liz: He might be seventy!

  • Len: I guess in the divorce settlement, she got all our friends. I gave my gun to my pastor—you know, in case I get the old gloomies again.

  • Jack: Tracy, why did you never try to find your father? Tracy: Because he's dead. Jack: How do you know that? Tracy: Because I'm rich, and if that man were alive, he'd be living in my pool house and I'd be paying him $200,000 a year to mow my lawn.

  • Liz: Look, Jack, I don't have a lot of personal life experience, but if I have learned anything from my Sims family, when a child doesn't see his father enough he starts to jump up and down, and then his mood level will drop... until he pees himself.

  • Jack: (on finding his father) Why would I want more family? Liz: Because maybe he's awesome. Why don't you just ask your mother who it is? Jack: No, no, not Colleen. She had her reasons for keeping this from me for 50 years, and I don't want her to relive it. Also, I want something really juicy to whisper to her on her deathbed.
