      • Lacey: Pretty slick, Emma.
        Emma: What are you talking about?
        Lacey: Oh, come on. You knew that if you could get these guys to do their act, they'd patch things up.
        Emma: That or they'd have duked it out. Either way, it would have been entertaining.

      • Oscar: Listen Wes, if you want to ruin a perfectly good business relationship, that's your business. My business is... your business is... my business is your business!

      • Wanda: Now I just need to finish the set design. I'm thinking something sparkly. Bright colors. Red, green, flashing lights.
        Brent: So, old Christmas decorations?
        Wanda: Yeah.
        Brent: Fine. You deck the halls, but I'm not donning any gay apparel.

      • Emma: I don't know how we all missed it, but Carl is kind of a... dink.
        Brent: Well, I've always had a very sensitive dink meter.
        Lacey: I wish I hadn't heard that.
        Brent: YOU wish?

      • Brent (about Oscar's homemade beer): Honest to God, Dad, it tastes like you beat a skunk to death with a salmon!

      • Carl: Look, you think we can have one pleasant meal with your mom without you getting all weird and defensive?
        Brent: I'm not weird and defensive.
        Carl: All right. See you at five.
        Brent: What's that supposed to mean?

      • Wanda: This show is brought to you by Chuck Dragner's pre-owned farm equipment. Stand up, Chuck. "If you can't trust the Chuck you're talking to, you're talking to the wrong guy named Chuck. " Geez Chuck, you gotta get a better slogan.

      • Mrs. Jensen: It's unjust, it's unfair, and I demand restitution!
        Brent: Mrs. Jensen, I can't be giving you your money back every time you rent a bad movie. Do you know how many bad movies there are out there?

      • Emma: I'm going out to get plant food, Oscar, do you need anything?
        Oscar: What are you getting plant food for?
        Emma: Because my tomatoes are pathetic and wrinkling, and when things are pathetic and wrinkly, they need food. Eat your sandwich.

      • Mrs. Jensen: When your father ran the place, the customer was always respected.
        Oscar (to Brent): Hey jackass, stop talking to this old wing nut and pump my gas!
        Brent: Well, he's a people person.
