  • Quotes (14)

    • Bill: I know how dark it is for you right now, lying in your own emotional vomit. You're in hell now, Boomhauer and the only way out is through a long, dark tunnel. And you're afraid to go in because there's a train coming at you carrying a boxcar full of heartbreak. Well, let me tell you something: All you can do is let it hit you and then try to find your legs. I've taken that hit more times than I can remember. Look at me, Boomhauer. I'm fat, and I'm old and every day I'm just going to wake up fatter and older. But somehow I manage to drag this fat, old, bald bastard out into the alley every day. I'm out there digging holes, falling into them climbing out, trying again and tomorrow, I'm going to hang outside at a ladies' prison. And the first thing those lady cons are going to see after 20 me. Will I get one? Experience says no. Will I be out there next month? If I'm alive, you better believe it. You got to get right back up on that tanning bed, slip into a tight T-shirt, wash off some of that cologne and get yourself out of that tunnel and into some strange woman's bed!

    • Dale: The alley was balanced before: a cool single guy, and a cool married guy; a loser single guy, and a loser married guy. Now it's me and three losers!

    • Bill (as he and Boomhauer are arguing at Marlene's pool, and Bill gets pushed in): This is a digital watch! I could have been electrocuted!

    • Hank: Let's face it, we've been down the imaginary-friend road before. There were those guys you claimed you played soccer with, Larry and Wayne. Bill: You know, Larry and Wayne may have been imaginary, but they were a lot more supportive than you. Dale: You didn't hear what they were saying behind your back.

    • Hank: Remember when you fell in love with that speed-skater on the Wheaties box? Turns out she was real too, but that doesn't make her your girlfriend.
