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?

  • Karen: You know, Marilyn, my husband may not be dead but my love for him is. So if you ever need a drinking buddy, I'll drink with you. Or if you ever need a shoulder to cry on, I'll drink with you. I guess what I'm trying to say is...I love to drink!

  • Grace: You and I fight all the time. There's almost a statistical impossibility that you and I are not gonna be in the fight when we die. Will: Don't say statistics to me. I took your statistics final for you! Grace: Yeah....and I still got a C.
