    • Carol: Mike, Mom and Dad went to Boston College. They met there. They fell in love there. They did God knows what there.

    • Carol: Mike, I need your help. Mike: I know. But I don't do electrolysis.

    • Carol: Now, I figured the plan out, but you have got to help me. Mike: Why have I "got to help you?" Carol: Because. Because you're my brother and you love me. (Mike gives a bemused look) Carol: Because you're a scumbucket and I'll give you 20 bucks? Mike: Done deal.

    • Mike: Alright, what's your plan? Carol: Actually, you gave me the idea when you said I should blow the interview by belching and smelling bad. Mike: (sniffs Carol) Okay. But can you belch?

    • (Carol explained her plan) Mike: All right, Carol! You know, Carol, it saddens me when I think of what a sleazemeister you could have been if you'd only applied yourself when you were young.
