    • Laird: Oh no, fancy carpoolers. Carpooler: There, get it. Dougie: It's mine. I got it this time. (Everyone cheers him on) Laird: They're not going to hit you twice. (Fancy carpoolers run over Dougie) Laird: They ran over him twice. Dougie: I'm okay. I'm alright.

    • Aubrey: Gentlemen, let's carpool.

    • Laird: Okay okay, who would you do ... Jessica Biel and get no money or one of the golden girls and get a million dollars? Aubrey: Which golden girl? Laird: The little one. Gracen: The funny one or the sleazy one? Laird: The funny one. Dougie: Is the million dollars before taxes? Laird: You only find out after the act. Dougie: Golden girl. They all agree Gracen: How about this? Who would you do? Would you do Dame Judi Dench or a bear? Laird: Describe the bear.

    • Gracen: I am done with Laird... I've had it. Marmaduke: I wouldn't act so rashly, father. We are men of very few friends, lest we forget. Gracen: Oh really... how many friends do you have? Marmaduke: 27,853. Obviously you haven't seen my MySpace page.

    • Parking Committee Member: (played by Bruce McCulloch, writer and exec. producer for the show's friend and co-member, Scott Thompson, aside to another committee member about the four carpoolers) I don't like them... I can't be more specific.

    • Gracen: So How's America? Marmaduke: Sarcasm noted, processed, amplified and refracted back to you.

    • Marmaduke: (12 hours after moving out of the house and in with Laird) Hello, Mother, do come in. Father, time has not been good to you.

    • (at Aubrey's house, Laird accusing Dougie)
      Laird: It's you fault.
      Dougie: What? How is, this, my fault?
      Laird: You pushed him into your wife's Green Queen cult.
      Dougie: No, it's not a cult. It's a group of people led by charismatic leader who tells them what to say and do.
