    • Carl: What are you doing here? Earl: We moved back in, Mom said it was cool. Carl: No, no it's not cool. Kay? Earl: Her and Randy went to pick up a bucket of chicken. She said she was going to get all white meat to make me feel better about my situation. Carl: You can't just move back in, we don't have the room. Where are your kids gonna sleep? Earl: I don't have any kids. Carl: But where's you wife? Earl: Still at the hospital. Probably starting to figure out I left her cheating ass. That or she's banging an Asian doctor trying to get one of everything.

    • Randy: He back on the fence. Earl: (tugs on a rope and Dodge falls) Sorry buddy, we'll put a mattress there tomorrow. Joy: Don't worry, those huggies are padded.

    • Earl: What are you doing in bed? Joy: Waiting for you to get home to give me my Thanksgiving stuffing. Earl: Really? Alright, it's been a while.

    • Darnell: (to Joy) I don't like having sex in a walk-in freezer! It's cold in there and we still get sweaty. Last time, my balls got stuck to a keg of beer.

    • Darnell: What if the real daddy can't? What if things are complicated with the real daddy right now? What if Joy doesn't seem to love the real daddy anymore and the real daddy's fiscal instability, volatile living conditions and possible secret identity doesn't lend itself to creating an environment that is conducive to raising a child right now?# Randy Are all those words English...or are you making them up? because I made up a word last week, farnicerous. I don't know what it means yet.

    • Guess Who's Coming Out of Joy The title of this episode is a nod to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" a film in which a white couple (Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn) is surprised when their daughter introduces them to her fiancĂ©, a black man (Sidney Poitier).

    • The Accused Joy: Alright, fine. So we'll just wait until this place closes and you can do me on the pinball machine like in that porno Jodie Foster did. "The Accused" based on the real life March 6, 1983 gang-rape in Big Dan's Bar in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Jodie Foster won the Best Actress Oscar and Golden Globe for her role as the rape victim.
