  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (33)

    • Dani: Ray's contesting the divorce. He cut off the credit cards and closed the bank accounts.
      Angela: Well, there's just one thing you can do. Take him back.
      Dani: Ma, he cheated on me -- more than once!
      Angela: But less than Tiger Woods.

    • Ray: Jesus, Dani. I made a mistake, okay? I'm sorry.
      Dani: You banged half a dozen women, Ray. That's not a mistake. That is a way of life.

    • Dani: Why does such a smart girl refuse to take herself seriously?
      Lindsay: Because I had you as my role model.

    • Dani: You want my credentials?
      Coach Purnell: Oh, I got all that. Masters and doctorate in psychology, Hofstra University, blabbity bla.
      Dani: You googled me?
      Coach Purnell: Hell, yeah. I'm not gonna turn my multimillion-dollar investment over to just anyone without some due diligence. And nothing against Hofstra, but what are you gonna do when Harvard couldn't do diddly-squat?
      Dani: Here's what your Google search didn't tell you -- I'm a licensed therapist, hypnotherapist, and substance-abuse counselor. I was accepted both by NYU and Columbia into their doctorate programs, but declined because I had two small children to carpool and a husband who expected dinner on the table every night. My specialties include chicken parmesan, cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis, and kicking my patients' butts. Beyond that, if you would like a money-back guarantee, then you should go buy a washing machine.

    • Dani: How am I supposed to get in the back room of a strip club?
      Nico: Well...
      Dani: Don't answer that.

    • Dani: Officer, hey, hey, hey, I'm her mother. What's going on?
      Officer: Your daughter here took the speaker off a McDonald's drive-through box.
      Dani: With what, her bike?
      Officer: Her car.
      Dani: She doesn't have a car.
      Officer: Or a license.

    • Ray Jay: Now, ma, think twice before doing anything crazy. Judges frown on parents killing their kids.

    • Dani: You blabbing my business to everybody?
      Ray Jay: Well, teenagers feel a loss of support as a result of divorce and turn outwards to fill that gap.
      Dani: Please stop reading my psychology books, okay, because you definitely don't understand them!
