  • Quotes (17)

    • Jack: Lemon, I'm impressed. You're beginning to think like like a businessman. Liz: A businesswoman. Jack: I don't think that's a word.

    • Liz: What's with the cookie jar? Jack: I collect them. Liz: Really? Is that some sort of unresolved childhood thing? Jack: Nice try. Uh, we never had any cookie jars in my home because my mother never baked us any cookies because she never felt we deserved any cookies. So obviously it has nothing to do with my childhood. Liz: But that cookie jar says "MOM" on it. Jack: Uh, I don't think so. I've always viewed it as an upside-down "WOW".

    • Kenneth: (feeding Jenna) Coming in for a landing. (makes airplane noises) Uh oh, there's turbulence. (makes sputtering motor sound) And now an Indian guy got up to use the bathroom, and an air marshal shot him. (makes plane nosediving noise)

    • Kenneth: This stuff will make you real fat, Miss Maroney. It made my dad's heart just up and give out. And that's what made my mom's friend Ron move in...

    • Angie: (to Liz) I trusted you. You wear glasses!
