  • Quotes (11)

    • Hank: How about I buy you an ornament?
      Cotton: (seeing the one Hank picked) "Peace"?!? You'd like that, you draft-dodger. Sure you can't find one with a flag burning on it?
      Hank: It's Jesus peace,not hippie peace.
      Cotton: Either way, we've always been a "Joy" family.
      Hank: But-
      Cotton: (interrupting)JOY!

    • Cotton: It's the first Christmas dinner in my new apartment, so you better bring a Christmas gift, a housewarming gift, and a chair if you want to sit.

    • Hank: Okay, I've put together a schedule which gives us four days to finish this house. The frame's a prefab, so we could build it in two but let's take four and really enjoy it.
      Bill: Since we're starting from scratch why don't we make it a dream house and put the toilet in the living room?

    • Bobby: (trying to get Hank a holiday gift) Why don't we just get him a gift certificate?
      Peggy: That's a great idea, Bobby. We will give your father, who worked so hard to conceive you, the same thing we give the paper boy. Who did nothing.

    • Didi: Cotton is easy to shop for. Either he likes what I get him, and he's happy, or he doesn't like what I get him, and he shoots it, and he's happy.
