    • Jordy: The last time I saw Grandpa, we were in the backyard playing baseball. Well, actually, we played A League of Their Own. He was Tom Hanks. I was everybody else.

    • (Karen finishes writing up something on a note pad whilst sitting next to Tina) Karen: All right. This should be everything you need to know to have an affair with Stan. Directions to the manse, the security code, and of course, a diagram of his body. The part with the arrow next to it is where you'll want to focus. Tina: Oh, thank you. I never would have guessed to look there.

    • Marilyn: Thank you for being George's... companion during-- during those years in the middle when he... put on a little weight Tina: Oh, no problem. Truth is, I kind of like 'em a little fat (Marilyn walks away, as Karen scrambles on the sofa, jumps over the back of it and runs up to Tina) Karen: Excuse me, miss, how fat are you willing to go?

    • Ellen: This is so great. All of us together, sharing stories. Rob: I love you, honey. Ellen: Rob, why do you always have to ruin the moment?

    • Karen: (To Will) You know, honey, normally my motto is 'Drugs, Not Hugs'. But today I feel different. Come on. (She hugs Will)
