Huh? Brian: I screwed up. Luka: Let's see you hit me, huh?! (pushes him) Come on. Brian: I did'nt mean too... I lost my temper. Luka: Loose your temper with me! (pushes him into the wall) Brian: O.k.

    • Susan: Ok, I'm gonna go to Doc Magoo's, have some breakfast, find a toothbrush and change my underwear, then I'll help clear your board. Kerry: 15 minutes. Frank: If I stick with the underwear I've got on, can we at least keep the food out?
