      • (at the front door)
        Jonathan: Mr. LeRoy?
        Oscar: Yes.
        Jonathan: I'm Jonathan Zinetta, the foster child from Kenya you sponsored. I was in Canada, and I thought I'd come visit the family who sponsored me so I could thank them.
        Oscar: You're welcome. (he shuts the door and turns to find Emma and Brent staring at him in disbelief)
        Oscar: What?

      • Jonathan: And thanks to your generosity, I was able to escape the squalor of my existence and become a doctor
        Emma: Oh!
        Oscar: I always knew he'd grow up to be a doctor!
        Emma: You didn't even understand the program.
        (cut to Oscar and Emma in the past)
        Emma: We should sponsor a foster child.
        Oscar: Why can't Ed Foster take care of his own kids?

      • Jonathan: How about you, Brent? What was your childhood like?
        Brent: I was able to escape the squalor of my existence to take over the gas station.

      • (seeing the broken cash register)
        Hank: Hey, something's broken, you didn't call me?
        Wanda: Figured it was already busted, so what could you do?
        Karen: The drawer was stuck.
        Hank: Try yanking on it as hard as possible?
        Karen: Yup.
        Hank: Well, that's all I got.

      • Brent: Hey, Lacey, I'd like you to meet my brother, Jonathan.
        Lacey (shaking his hand): Hi there, nice to meet you.
        Brent: That's it? I say I have a brother, you don't even bat an eye?
        Lacey: You say a lot of things; I'm done with batting my eyes.
        Hank: Wait, wait, wait! You got a brother and I just find out about it now? I thought we were friends! Man, this stinks!
        Brent (to Lacey): Was that so hard?

      • Hank: Man, that can't be easy... listening to your father going on about how proud he is of Jonathan.
        Lacey: Or listening to your father period.

      • Wanda: This witty banter is exactly why I don't want people to know I'm no good at math. You gotta help me.
        Karen: I'm busy.
        Wanda: I may not be great with numbers, but I figure it's going to cost about two hundred bucks to fix the cash register, which Brent does or doesn't need to know you broke.
        Karen: Busy helping you with math!

      • Hank: I'm just saying, when it comes to eating, Brent can pack it down more than anyone. He's like a hippopotamus.
        Brent: Thanks, Hank.

      • Hank: Hey, everyone, sorry to interrupt dinner, but I just wanted to show Jonathan, and remind his mom and dad, of this ball of string Brent collected in grade six.
        Emma: Jonathan's a doctor, not a kitten.
        Hank: Well, this was the second biggest in our class!
        Oscar: Brent saved string... Jonathan saved a village.
        Jonathan: Well, not a whole village.

      • Davis: Hey, Hank, try the 'classic goat cheese omelet'.
        Hank: Oh, goat and cheese in the same omelet? I'm in!

      • (laughing at a slightly witty comment Brent made)
        Hank: Oh, that's funny, you're funny!
        Lacey: What about what I said?
        Hank: Not so much, no. But Brent... he's funny, and a successful owner of a gas station. I mean, doctors around the world would be envious of your wit, and gas.

      • Glen: Hey, you're good at math! Maybe you can help me out. The roof is 15 feet by 44 feet...
        Wanda: Uh-huh. (pulling out her cell phone)
        Glen: And if each bundle of shingles covers 8 square feet..
        Wanda: Sorry, I'm just in the middle of a call.
        Glen: Then how many bundles of shingles do I need to cover the whole roof?

      • Davis: I got this clicking sound in my knee.
        Oscar: I'll get my son to look at it.
        Davis: I don't want Brent touching my knees.

      • Hank: Hey, Brent, could I borrow some money for a beer? (to Jonathan) One thing about my buddy Brent, is he's got a lot of money and he's always willing to be generous with it.
        Brent: Sorry, I'm a little short on cash right now.
        Hank: He also keeps me on a tight leash.

      • Lacey: Hey, Phil, I see you got the classic nachos there.
        Phil: Uh-huh... you want some?
        Lacey: Nope, but I know what you're up to.
        Phil: What?
        Lacey: You know what I'm saying. (she winks) They're classic.
        Phil (to the bar in general): Someone needs to drive Lacey home!

      • (looking at a 'family' photo of Emma, Oscar, Jonathan and Brent's elbow)
        Brent: You cut me out of the picture?
        Oscar: People around here know what you look like!
        Emma: Well, at least we got your good elbow.
        Brent: I have a bad elbow?

      • Lacey: Why are you listening to Oscar? I mean, it's Oscar. You know...Oscar... Oscar. I can't be any more clear than that.

      • Brent: Hank was right.
        Hank: Oh, if I had a nickel every time I heard that.

      • (as Jonathan is leaving, Brent hands him a sweater)
        Brent: Mom wants you to wear this sweater.
        Jonathan: I will... but only as far as the airport.
        Brent: Now you're learning!
