    • Jack: You blow this for me and so help me God, you'll wake up with Rosario's head in your bed. Karen: Just don't put it all the way in. Jack: I'll have to adjust my whole character, but whatever.

    • (with Jack's tongue in her ear) Karen: Meats and cheeses, you are rocking my clock, Mary.

    • Grace: Objection! The familiar cutening of my name implies we like each other! Marv: Miss Adler, though it's clear you know a lot of legal terms...you've yet to use a single one of them properly. Grace: May I approach the bench? Marv: You'd have to build one first.

    • When Megan tells Sean not to "put it all the way in," he takes a brief pause, takes a breath and closes his eyes. But the very next shots shows his eyes wide open, about to take another breath. Bad edit.
