    • Gina: Okay lady, we need to talk. Bobbie: Excuse me? Gina: I have sat around long enough now, hearing about how you paw and threaten my boy, it ends now! Bobbie: You are way off base. First of all, I'm a respectable woman, and I would never be sexually aggressive with a young man. And second, which one's mother are you? Gina: Michael's. Bobbie: He's the best one. Gina: Look, I know you're a bigshot, and probably think I should be afraid of you, but if you ever bother him again, I can not be responsible for what happens to you. (Bobbie does a taunting imitation) Gina: I'm not kidding around! Bobbie: Listen - Gina: No, you listen! This is not open for debate! You got that, you crazy-eyed lunatic pervert witch? You bother him again and I'll send you back to whatever fairytale you escaped from! Bobbie: (Angrily) Noone talks to me like that! (pause) Would you like a job?

    • Alex: On Monday I have to give a coworker his pants back Joey: I’ll take that over what happened to me--my girlfriend left me without saying goodbye. Alex: I’m getting divorced. Joey: I’m never gonna have an adult relationship. Alex: I haven’t had sex in three months. Joey: (pause) I got nothing that'll top that.

    • (Bobbie's office) Bobbie: (on phone) Yeah, you were right. Yes, that intervention was a real eye-opener. Yeah, I'm calling from the rehab right now. Mm-hmm. Yeah, I'll see you in 28 days. (hangs up the phone) Sucka! (takes out flask and drinks)

    • Alex: Oh, good. I've got a big problem. I invited Peter over and now he's in my bathtub naked. Joey: Wow, that was fast. I could learn a thing or two from Office Joey. Alex: No, this is all my fault. I think I may have led him on a little bit. Joey: Alex, don't blame yourself. Alex: I told him to take off all his clothes, get into my bathtub, and wait for a long night of passionate lovemaking. Joey: You may share some of the blame.

    • Gina: (looking in cabinet) Jeez, there's no alcohol. What happened here? Joey: You had a Cinco de Mayo party for one. Gina: Ah, si.
