    • Rocky: Oh Bryan I hauled my ass all the ay across town to bring you these damn eggs.
      Jane: Oh no, you are not growing one of her kind of eggs in my Granddaughter.
      Bryan: Oh no sweety these are poached.
      Rocky: What the hell do you mean my kind of eggs. The last time I checked this diamond speckled watch my gay boss bought me without his consent it was 2012. And why don't you take your Callista Gingrich hair do and your racist mind back to the past or the south where they belong.
      Shania: Guys you know this whole thing just went live streaming on Twitter.
      Goldie: Nana, I wanna help this family.
      Jane: I feel like I just ate a black and gay stew right before I fell asleep, this is a nightmare.
      Rocky: No, this ain't a nightmare, but I'm gonna pinch you real good to make sure.

    • Jane: (Aiming what appears to be a lighter in the shape of a gun) You, Hello Kitty out.
      Clay: Hey, that is a toy right?
      Jane: You know something Clay. I have put up with you for the past nine years. I put up with your ridiculous Fozzy Bear impersonations, with you're self diagnosed narcolepsy.
      Clay: No, that's real it's not just naps.
      Jane: I can't think of anything else to do except to kill you. Now unforunatley I couldn't live in prison without my lean cusine. So I am open to other options.
      Clay: (Revealing himself) I always found you to be really sexy Nana.
      Jane: Oh put that gherkin away.
      Clay: What's a gherkin.
      Jane: A tiny pickle.
      Clay: That's messed up.

    • Jane: (To Shania) So are you thinking about joining the Brownies this year? Did I ever tell you that I set my troops record for cookie sales? In spite of that Mindy Goldfarb trying to Jew down my customers.
      Shania: Nana you're a biggot. I'm unfriending you right now.
      Jane: I am extremely tollerant to all peoples. When they opened that Chipoltle here I was the first of my friends to go, and that is Spanish food.
      Shania: Still unfriended.

    • Jane: Would you look at that, just strutting down the middle of Buckeye road in broad daylight, proud as gay peacocks.
      Shania: Why shouldn't they be Nana?
      Jane: Don't call me that, I don't look old enough be a Grandmother.
      Shania: Great-Grandmother.
      Jane: I happen to love the gays, I could never get my hair to look this good without them.
      Goldie: Seems like they love each other that's all.
      Jane: And now with the P.D.A. Those ass campers have some nerve.
      Goldie: Nanna, those are lesbians.
      Jane: Those are ugly men.

    • Bryan: (Recording a video for his and David's unborn child) Hi, it's me, Byan Collins. But you won't know me as that, you will know me as dad. Maybe even daddy. Oh god I think I'd just die if you call me daddy. (chokes up) This video is to show you. How desperately you are wanted. And how much we love you. You're our baby. We ae just so excited to meet you.

    • Rocky: (Bryan pushes the buttons on his Mac but keeps getting an eror sound) (From off screen) Are you pushing it? Push it.
      Bryan: I have fingers it just goes bing.
      Rocky: Is it bin or bing?
      Bryan: Bing, bing, it's a bad bing. Makes it sound of terminal cancer or mymother pressing me for an intimate lunch.
      Rocky: (Rocky presses a button and the Mac automatically works) Got it.
      Bryan: Is this video thig gonna work now, because it's important.
      Rocky: Do you like these shoes you bought them for my birthday last week.
      Bryan: Great now you can eat the leaves at the top of the tree.
      Rocky: Half giraffe, half drag queen honey.

    • Bryan: Are you telling me that all of these display turkeys are going to be killed?
      Farmer: Son, what is it you think we do here?
      Bryan: I don’t know, I thought you had a freezer in the back with the ready-to-go kind! And all this bloody gory stuff happened at night, in some secret off-sight poultry Guantanamo while the townspeople slept in peaceful ignorance.

    • Mr. Sawyer: (to David) Like it or not kiddo, it's our flaws who have made you who you are. From what I can see, you've done pretty damn good.
