    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Rene reminds M.E. of the time she made slow gin fist punch and they got drunk and were sick for days, she said it was in Grandma Otis' basement. But in "Nope" when we see it happen, they're at Rene's house.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • M.E.: We'll just cut each sandwich up into four little sandwiches. That's what Jesus did when He had those 5,000 people to feed and only two loaves of bread.
        Kelly: It was five, and He served fish too.
        M.E.: Tuna salad. I read all about it in the book of Matthew. Psychologically it works because nobody is so uncouth to take four sandwiches at one time.

      • Rene: Kelly you know better!
        Kelly: 'You know better, Kelly!' 'Don't do that to your brother, Kelly!' 'Your father's got a bad back, Kelly!' 'The world can't stop for your inconvenience, Kelly!'

      • Rene: Nevis in handcuffs, and looking at that white sheet and knowing there was a 14 year old little boy under there, it was terrible, both mothers were there.
        M.E.: And they both lost a child.

      • Principal: When I was 12 years old, Lonny Anderson called me a sissy, I broke his nose, the principal called my father to congratulate him. Today I'd be arrested for assault and battery.
        Rene: We live in different times.
        Principal: If kids these days were smart they wouldn't get guns, they'd get law degrees.

      • Woman: Someone at school threatened my son.
        Rene: School matters are best reported to the principal.
        Woman: Nevis, that's my boy, saw a gun in the locker next to his.
        Odessa: Well then there's no question about it, report it to the police.
        Woman: NO! Larry Huber, that's the boy with the gun, said he'd empty it into Nevis' back if he told anyone, now he's afraid to go to school, and not that I would let him go...he's only 14.

      • M.E.: He just had his hand on my 15 year old daughter's breast!
        Rene: Come on, you were making out in the bushes when you were 11.
        M.E.: That's different!
        Rene: How?

      • M.E.: You certainly seem to know a lot about parenting, providing you've never been one.
        Rene: You are such a bitch!

      • M.E.: Do you believe that people can change?
        Kelly: Rene says you can't change other people, you can only change yourself.
        M.E.: She's probably right.

      • Rene: M.E., you were wild at 15.
        M.E.: This has nothing to do with me at 15.
        Rene: It's exactly about you at 15. You know where she's coming from, that's why you can't talk to her.
        M.E.: I talk to Kelly.
        Rene: You talk at her, there's a big difference.
        M.E.: I already lost one child.
        Rene: And you'll lose another one if you don't stop acting like an officer and start acting like a mother.

      • Rene: Are you okay?
        M.E.: My 15-year-old daughter just got picked up for drunk driving, and called my best friend to come and bail her out, and not me. No, I'm not okay.
        Rene: The night of your senior prom, you got so drunk you drove your car off the road and into an electrified fence.
        M.E.: Tell me you didn't tell her that.
        Rene: I told her we had some difficult times growing up.
