Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions

Quotes (5)

  • A.J.: Rick, she called you-quite accurately I might add-an overgrown adolescent with no romance in his soul. Rick: What do I need a romantic soul for? The Power Wagon's got bench seats.

  • Rick: That's a good way to go broke, betting on the lifespan of a marriage. AJ: Yeah. Not like a brother. Unfortunately that lasts forever. Rick: You know, AJ, there's something that Mom made me promise that I would never tell you: you're adopted.

  • Rick: I checked out every biker club and weird cult hangout in town. No one's ever heard of a Terry Adamson. Did get invited to a human sacrifice, though. You wanna go? AJ: Why not? At least we can tell Mom we made it to the altar.

  • Cecilia: Ah well, boys, don't worry. You'll both find a wonderful girl who'll make you very happy. Rick: That sounds great, Mom. I'll take Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

  • Abby: My mother had a saying, 'Beware of geeks bearing gifts.'
