    • Brian: Excuse me, I'm sorry, but are you going to rent that electric car documentary? Christine: Well we were, but then we decided to rent Kangaroo Jack instead. Patrick: Wow, that's some leap. Christine: Yeah, well we start out lofty but then we remember who we are! Barb: Last week we went from Casablanca to Scooby Doo: Where's My Mummy..

    • Richard: New Christine and I are starting to plan the wedding, and luckily I only have on thing to do: pick out the chairs for the reception. And I want to do a good job, because when I'm good Christine gives me treats, if you know what I mean. Matthew: I do. Richard: Sexual treats. Matthew: I said I did!

    • Christine: Hey Barb, how great is this? I mean, this is the first time that you and I have been single together since college. Oh my God, do you remember how hot we were when we were eighteen? Barb: I was still wearing head gear and you had severe chin acne. We were not hot!
