    • Michael: We're brothers. We shouldn't be fighting. We cannot afford to lose each other.
      Gob: I can't. I already lost a brother today.
      Michael: Franklin?
      Gob: Well, I didn't lose him. But he's all puckered and white.
      Michael: On the plus side, you can take him to lunch at the club now.
      Gob: That's the kind of joke he would have loved!

    • Gob: Oh, no.
      Gob: (as Franklin with English accent) You've ruined the act, Gob.

    • Gob: Great news! Dad wasn't crushed to death!
      Michael: Was there a risk of that?

    • Michael: Go ahead and tell Gob that I'll be telling the cops that it was him in the truck so he'll be joining me here. I've got a nice hard cot with his name on it.
      Lucille: You'd do that to your own brother?
      Michael: I said "cot".

    • Buster: (to Lucille) You lied to me! You said my father was my father, but my uncle is my father. My father is my uncle!

    • Gob: And guess what else ... Dad kissed me!
      Michael: How? He looked pretty unconscious in that picture.
      Gob: I didn't say he was totally into it!

    • Gob: Dad's gonna be crushed!
      George Michael: You don't have to tell him!

    • Oscar: (about his hair) Why won't it grow back!?

    • (Singing)
      Gob: It ain't easy being white.
      Franklin: It ain't easy being brown.
      Gob: All this pressure to be bright.
      Franklin: I got children all over town!
      Gob: Sometime ... (spoken) hey, where'd the guy go?

    • Marc Cherry: It's a satire!
