    • Charlie: I once handed a date my Visa so she could pump gas for me, and on my next statement, there were charges for a boob job and a PlayStation 3. And I never got to play with either one of them.

    • Jake: You know what's a good movie? Snakes on a Plane. Airplanes are already scary, plus there's snakes everywhere: in the overhead compartment, in the bathroom, open the barf bag... (imitates opening bag and jumping back startled) SNAKE! (turns to Charlie with arm extended) SNAKE!!

    • (watching a boxing movie) Jake: In ultimate fighting they kick, they elbow, they get a guy down and smash his head in the floor. These guys just dance around and barely hit each other. Charlie: Okay, okay, listen to me. Boxing is a science. Boxers don't just wail on each other: they strategize, feel each other out, wait for an opening. (Jakes glances at the TV, then back to Charlie) Jake: Gay.

    • Charlie: Tell you what—I'll be your wingman. I'll go over and engage the mom in conversation. Then, after I've greased the wheels, I'll give you a signal. You saunter over and work your magic. Jake: "Saunter?" Charlie: Walk. Jake: Well, then, just say "walk". You don't have to make up words.

    • Alan: I'm in trouble here, Charlie. How do I get out of a stagnant, joyless relationship? Charlie: If I knew how to do that, you wouldn't still be living here.
