    • QUOTES (17)

      • Jeff: (crying on Pierce's shoulder) We always used to watch the shows she wanted to watch. I hate Glee.
        Pierce: I'm not crazy about Glee, either.
        Jeff: I hate it. I don't understand the appeal at all.

      • Britta: You were right. Nana's a monster.
        Nana: What did you say?!
        Britta: I said you are a monster, ma'am!
        Nana: And you said Troy was right! (To Troy) Get me a switch!

      • Amber: You're leaving?
        Jeff: (stalling) pregnant.
        Amber: Pierce said you were gay.
        Jeff: He wh--! (calmly) Yep. As the sun rise.

      • Britta: I am Britta, and I have offended you, and I am sorry. Is there anything I can get you?
        Nana: Yes. You can get me a switch.
        Britta: A what now?
        Troy: She's not family, Nana. You can't make her get you a switch.
        Britta: She can make me get it! I just have to know what it is.
        Troy: A switch is a stick she can use to whoop you with.

      • Jeff: You're becoming dangerous, Annie. It's those doe-eyes. Disappointing you is like choking the Little Mermaid with a bike chain.

      • Senor Chang: (about Amber) Looks like Pierce broke the piggy bank at the escort service this time!

      • Senor Chang: Wow, I can't believe Star-burns ISN'T a virgin. But judging by the blue-tooth headset, his son is! Cha-CHANG!

      • Pierce: (about Amber) She's going to photography school.
        Jeff: Oh, that's very interesting.
        Pierce: Keep it in your pants, Winger. She may be hot, but she's my princess.

      • Pierce: Jeff, this is my step-daughter Amber.
        Jeff: Small world.
        Pierce: No, actually it's a very big world with 5 billion other women in it. Good luck.

      • Jeff: (Sees a girl who interests him) Guys, I'll be back. But with booty.

      • Shirley: Your heart's desensitized, Jeff. You're like a machine, it feels no love, just sex. You're like the Booty-nator. (Gets weird looks from everyone) You know the Booty-nator, like "I'll be back" but with booty?
        Troy: Why would the Booty-nator be back with booty? Wouldn't he just try and kill it?
        Abed: Well, maybe he kills it and brings it back as a trophy.
        Annie: Why would he want dead booty?

      • (Professor Slater just dumped Jeff)
        Shirley: I'll give Jeff a shoulder to cry on, (to Abed and Troy) and you boys go put a dead bird in that bitch's glove compartment.

      • (About Troy's Grandmother)
        Britta: You know she is not going to be around forever.
        Troy: I wanna believe you're right Britta, but you never quite are, are you?

      • Troy: I can't believe my grandma is rolling her old bones down here. I gotta pick a cabinet to hide in.

      • Abed: My dad's bringing my cousin Abrah. She's visiting from Gaza.
        Annie: Does she look like you, but with a wig and lipstick?
        Abed: No. That's Halle Berry.

      • Shirley: I'm so excited for everyone to meet my sons!
        Abed: I hope they're not twins. Twins freak me out. They always know what the other one is-
        Troy: Thinking.
        Abed: Yeah. And they're always finished each other's-
        Troy: Pie.
        Abed: It's creepy.

      • Professor Slater: Jeff, we need to talk.
        Jeff: (jokingly) What's wrong, are you breaking up with me?
        Professor Slater: Oh. (laughs) Maybe we don't need to talk.
