      Sam: Yes, I do it's the first time in 15 years that they've envied me.

      Sam: Those titles don't even generate the kind of envy you'd think.

      (After learning Sam doesn't want to spend Thanksgiving with the family)

      (After a failed attempt from Kyle trying to fill it up with cough syrup, the boys try to figure out how to kill a live turkey)

      Grandma Nana (To Bob about the gravy boat): If I'd given it to you, you would've lost it in one of your divorces or traded it for opium.

      Judy: It needs to be said. We can't all pretend it doesn't exist, like Eleanor.
      Jeff: For God's sake Judy. You promised you wouldn't bring up Eleanor today.
      Sam: Who's Eleanor?
      Angela: Sam, don't!
      Bob: Eleanor is Nana's "roommate".
      Grammy Nana: For the last time we are just sharing expenses.
      Judy: And a bed.

      Jeff: Enough! I am putting the gravy boat back in the hutch.
      Bob: Oh you mean the same hutch that was supposed to be my wedding gift?
      Grammy Nana: She was 16!
      Bob: It was Thailand, things are different there!

      (Jimmy and Nick coming home from work)
      Jimmy: Man, did you see that babe standing outside in her bra?
      Nick: Jimmy...her home burned down.
      Jimmy: I'm not saying it's not tragic, I'm just saying...wowewowow!

      T.J.: It's a toss up between armpit farts and regular farts.
      Nick: We'll come back to you. You know what I'm thankful for? That I have five sons who would do something as stupid as steal a turkey so that I could have a happy Thanksgiving. And girls. Pass the gravy.
      T.J.: Regular farts. Definitely regular farts.

    • Grandma Nana: I hate dogs, I was once mauled by a Collie.

      Of course this is a reference to the old show Lassie because June Lockheart (Grandma Nana) played the mother on Lassie.
