Mia: What happened to your eye?
Karen: Yeah what did happen to your eye, Hank?
Hank: Well, you should see the other guy.
Mia: I hope she doesn't press charges.
Hank: It was not a "she", it was a "he", the other guy.
Mia: Right, or whatever I'm off to bed, good night. It was nice to meet you, Hank.
Hank: Nice to meet you, too.
Mia: Hey, that was really cool what you did tonight, it's nice to see some good old fashion family values in this morally bankrupt city of ours.
Hank: That's me, I'm all about the family values.
Hank: Now you're giving me that look, right now, look like I fingerbanged your cat.
Becca: Can I ask you something?
Hank: Anything, my love.

Karen: Well, Bill and I never touched each other till we were dead and buried.
Hank: Ok, are you trying to make me throw up now?
Becca: Don't yell at him!
Karen: I'm not going to yell at him...much.
Becca: So, who won that round?
Hank: Oh, it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.
Becca: Looks like a fun game.
Hank: You think I made her laugh?
Becca: Sure. A little. On the inside.
Karen: You smell like pussy.

Hank: (To Karen) Oh, I know that look. That's the look that shrivels me testes.

Hank: Yellow Submarine?
Yellow Submarine is a 1968 animated movie based on The Beatles' music. The title track to the movie was their 1966 song, Yellow Submarine, and The Beatles released an album with the same name in 1969 as the soundtrack to the film.
"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" is a song performed by the English rock band Queen, written by singer Freddie Mercury. While it peaked at number two in the UK, it hit number one on the U.S. charts on February 23, 1980, remaining there for four consecutive weeks. It topped the charts in Australia for six weeks.
When Hank's daughter Becca says that she wants to see a pirate movie, she also says that Johnny Depp is hot, she is referring to one of the films of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, that Depp plays the main role, Captain Jack Sparrow.
The movie adaptation "A Crazy Little Thing Called Love" to Hank Moody's book stars Hollywood actors Tom and Katie, both supposed to be a couple, so this might be an allusion to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Californication is the title track on the 1999 album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. As of 2007, it is their most commercially successful album.
