    • (Will and Tyriq are filling out a dating application) Will: You've gotta write the kind of things that appeal to the kind of woman you want. Tyriq: So what's you're occupation? Will: Well, I'm a biblical scholar, a nuclear physicist, and a doctor who saves the lives of orphan children. Tyriq: Wow man. What kind of woman are you looking for? Will: Someone with really, really big breasts.

    • (Philip is reading off the family's credit card bills) Philip: Carlton, ninty dollars for a pair of socks? That's ridiculous. Vivian: It certainly is. Oh Philip, that's nine dollars. Philip: Oh...Ashley. How could you manage to charge eighty dollars worth of trinkets on our account at the drug store? Vivian: That's eighty cents. Sweety, do you need to get your eyes checked? Philip: Don't be ridiculous Vivian. Vivian: This has been going on for months. If you move the tv any closer to the bed, I'll be sleeping with Jade Leno.

    • Will: Hilary, ever since you got this job, I've been working my butt off. Geoffrey: Miss Hilary, when you were a child, you begged your parents for months to buy you a violin. Then, five minutes into your first lesson, what happened? Hilary: I quit. I had to. It irritated my chin. Geoffrey: What about ballet? Hilary: I quit. I had to. I was starting to get feet like Fred Flintstone. Geoffrey: And cheerleading? Hilary: Okay, I quit that too. Heck, they wanted me to ride to away games on a bus.

    • Hilary: I'm making a new-years resolution to find a job...right after Easter.

    • Philip: Oh, great. You're all together. Vivian: Will, we've got something to say to you. Philip: We just want to congradulate you for setting such a fine example for the other kids. Will: Is this some kind of sick joke? Vivian: No baby, not at all. We are very proud of the way you've managed to balance your school work and your part-time job. Carlton: Is this some kind of sick joke? Philip: These bills are no joke. You kids could really learn a thing or two from Will. Hilary: Are we like in the The Twilight Zone When does everyone put on the pig masks?
