    • Jamie: All right, you guys, what should we drink to? Joan: (to Debbie) To your family! Debbie: My family.. Dysfunctional, judgemental, intolerant, oppressive, petty and small. Paul: Yes, but we get everything when they die!

    • Debbie: So! Only 96 hours, 15 minutes and 12 seconds until Mom and Dad finally meet Joan. Jamie: Relax. I'm sure the big news is that you've a girlfriend. Paul: Now you've given them a face to attach to the sleepless nights spent crying... Debbie: Thank you Paul. See how nice I am when you come out of the closet. Paul: (uncertain, to Jamie) What does she mean by that?

    • Jamie: When your mom meets Joan, she'll be so mad, that she'll have to like me more. I'll move up from the bottom of the totem poll. (opens door to see Paul's mother and Joan laughing and holding hands) Paul: Bottom of the totem poll? Jamie: Yeah.
