  • Quotes (16)

    • Greg: It's you, Kim. Here I am, wasting all this time thinking that I'm a lousy boss. I mean, it's starting to make sense. Because when Paula quit, I overheard her tell somebody she couldn't deal with Mrs. Warner anymore. I thought she was talking about me. Jimmy: Even though she said "Mrs. Warner?" Greg: There was an incident. I had trouble lifting a... water jug one time.

    • Greg: How often do you do this? Kim: I don't know. Maybe once or twice a week. Christine: A day! Once or twice a day! Yesterday, she told me to take my cellphone into the bathroom so that when nature called, she could, too.

    • Kim: You don't understand. She is shirking her other responsibilities. Greg: What other responsibilities? Christine: Responsibilities to Kim. She's been dumping projects on me all week. You know that school flyer she's been showing off? Greg: Yeah. Christine: All me! I made it! And you know that field trip that she's planning for next month? Greg: Yeah. Christine: Me! And you see that nice suit you're wearing? Jimmy: You made this?!

    • Kim: Um, unfortunately, the projects I ask you to do are a part of your job. Christine: Yeah, you keep saying that, but, um, I took a peek at the--the company handbook, and, um, taking your underwear back to The Gap because your thong is too "thongy?" Not part of the job description. Kim: This is--this is so typical. Christine: Excuse me? Kim: You're always looking for the easy way out. It goes all the way back to high school. You would steal my boyfriends because you refused to do the job of getting them yourself. Christine: Hey, I didn't steal them. They came to me because there were certain jobs you refused to do. Kim: I had braces with rubber bands.

    • Jimmy: That bad, huh? Christine: And it's only getting worse. I mean, today, I made thousands of photocopies, dozens of phone calls, then I spent my lunch hour at the fotomat picking up pictures of Sammy's soccer game. Jimmy: See, I told you working for Greg was a bad idea. I knew he'd be riding you. I knew he'd be always standing over and just cracking the whip. Christine: No, no, no, it's not Greg. It's Kim. She's riding me. She's standing over me cracking the whip. Jimmy: Wow... how hot is that?

    Allusions (1)

    • Christine: But if I don't get a job, I'm gonna feel like a failure. Especially if I'm stuck at home taping spoons to Jell-O boxes while Supermom Kim gives me the stink eye. I can't compete with her, Jimmy. She's like June Cleaver on... Red Bull and crystal meth.
      June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) was the perfect mom on the 1957-1963 show Leave It to Beaver. Red Bull is an energy drink that, according to the ads, "gives you wings."
