  • Quotes

    • Jeffrey: I suppose we better work this out.
      Brad: Does it have to be now?
      Jeffrey: Well, it is the season. Peace on for your fellow man....
      Brad: Wait. What was that?
      Jeffrey: "Love for your fellow man"?
      Brad: No, before that.
      Jeffrey: "Peace on Earth"?
      Brad: Liberal. I knew it!

    • Alan: I think we've just had our first three-way.
      Denny: It didn't look like Shirley enjoyed it as much as we did. You know, she tasted differently than I remember....
      Alan: (chuckles) That's because it was my slobber on her mouth, Denny. We've finally exchanged bodily fluids.
      Denny: (quickly downs his glass of wine) Blech!

    • White Supremacist Twins: (singing) Michael rowed the boat ashore...Hallelujah! Michael rowed the boat ashore....
      Alan: You do know that Michael was a homosexual Jew from Mexico, right?

    • Denise: (to Brad and Jeffrey, scoldingly) You're both partners! I'm not. So why am I the only one acting like an adult?

    • Denny: Objection. Your Honor, she's being...objectionable!
      Judge: Sustained.

    • Alan: What's my motivation?
      Shirley: Excuse me?
      Alan: My character's motivation. Surely you can't expect me to simply jump in and take this case!

    • Denny: Now, don't go knocking fat chicks! I love chubby-sex. (looks over at the female judge) I'm sure Your Honor does.

    • "Pro-Ana" Lawyer: I guess we'll see each other in court.
      Denny: (under his breath) Not if you turn sideways.

    • Shirley: (to Alan) This was one of Edwin Poole's cases. Somehow it managed to slip through my cracks, so I was sure you'd find it especially tasty.
