  • Quotes (15)

    • Cheryl: There's two rules this family has always lived by. One, we do not invade people's homes. At least, not when they're in them. Cal: Wha- She wasn't supposed to be there, obviously. Cheryl: And two, we never, ever, use violence! Cal: I didn't! She did! She should register her feet as, like, lethal weapons or something.

    • Cheryl: Let's go get Grandpa. Heather: Mom, no. No. Do not let him move in here! Remember last time, he thought my closet was the bathroom and peed on four pairs of my shoes? He's crazy. Cheryl: He's family. Family beats crazy.

    • (Lying in bed while kissing) Wolf: And get the money off Charlie for those phone cards, right? Cheryl: Been there, done that. Wolf: And you gotta get those cases of scotch to Falini. Cheryl: Mm-hmm. Just leave it in my very capable hands. Wolf: Hey! Don't forget to shred the tracking numbers. Cheryl: Wolf, shut up and get on top of me.

    • Cheryl: You won't be seeing us anymore, sergeant. The West family will no longer be bothering the Palm Spring Police Department. Sergeant Mack: You moving? Cheryl: No. We're turning over a new leaf. We're changing our business model. Sergeant Mack: (laughs) Oh. You crack me up, Cheryl. A leopard can't change his spots. Can't be done. Cheryl: I say it can. Just wait and see.

    • Cheryl: (answering her phone) Ugh, Heather, this is really not... Heather: (cutting her off) Mom, you have to come home right now. Grandpa's insane. He thinks I'm grandma. Cheryl: It's just the Alzheimers. Can't you just play along for a couple of hours? Heather: He thinks I'm pregnant with daddy. Grandpa West: Okay, Rita. Time to go now. Heather: Grandpa, go away! Grandpa West: Rita! Heather: Mom, he wants to go with me to the delivery room so he can cut the cord. If you don't come home right now, I am leaving. Cheryl: Okay, fine. I'll go get Hope from school. She can miss half a day. She knows how to talk to him. Heather: Yeah, she speaks fluent pervert.

    • Heather: You're the one who's always telling me to get off my butt and do something with my life. Wolf: (from the shower) Everything okay? Cheryl: Fabulous. When I told you to get off your butt, I did not mean put it on exhibit. Heather: These are modeling photos, mom. Cheryl: For what? An invisible line of clothing? Heather: Mom, Rene is a brilliant artist. See? Totally legitimate. He shot Gisele Bundchen when she was 14. You know what she made last year? Cheryl: Some dirty old men very happy? Heather: Over $30 million.

    • Sergeant Mack: (about Logan speaking to Cheryl) He's your big success story, isn't he? Pretty ironic, though, him being admitted to the bar the very same day his daddy's put behind 'em.

    • Cheryl: Heather, rise and shine. Cops. Heather: How am I supposed to shine if my skin cells can't get enough sleep? Cheryl: Hope, get up. We got company. Hope: Why don't they just move in and save on gas?
