    • QUOTES (8)

      • (about Claire kissing him)
        Dan: I don't know... maybe some of the old fire's still there.
        Jeff: Was she drunk?
        Dan: No, she... well, yeah, she was a little drunk.
        Jeff: Well, that might explain things better than your fire theory.

      • Fern: Hey, you said you'd be waving at cars; I didn't see you out there.
        Dan: Ah, I got forced off the good corner by a mattress guy.
        Fern: What do you mean, a mattress guy?
        Dan: Like, a guy in a mattress costume.
        Fern: You got pushed around by a mascot?
        Dan: He was bigger than me. I mean, part of that was foam, but still...

      • Claire: If we take things for granted, we could make one little slip, fall victim to one passing impulse, we could wreck this whole relationship.
        Mike: If this is about that trip to Japan, ...they're called hostesses, and I didn't want to offend my client!
        Claire: What?
        Mike: Nothing! I agree with what you're saying.

      • Dan: I was just wondering if you would like to, I don't know... go to a movie or something.
        Brianna: Oh.
        Anita: Why would she do that?
        Jeff: They went out the other night.
        Anita: What? Why would she do that?

      • (returning from golfing)
        Claire: You sure I didn't ruin it?
        Mike: Are you kidding? No! Honey, no!
        Claire: It seemed long... six hours to do seven holes.
        Mike: Yeah. You know, next time we do something together, let's do something you like.
        Claire: That's so sweet!
        Mike: So no more golfing, or anything I like to do alone; we'll do something you enjoy that I already can't stand.

      • Claire: So, I figured out what we could do on the togetherness front.
        Mike: Okay.
        Claire: We could get up an hour earlier.
        Mike: I don't get it.
        Claire: We get up an hour earlier, we could just be together.
        Mike: Yeah, but what would we do?
        Claire: Nothing! We just... be. Like old couples who don't have to talk, but just spend time together.
        Mike: Like we're old and we can't sleep.

      • Brianna: I like hanging out with you, Dan. Weird things happen.
        Dan: What weird things?

      • Mattress Guy: Here's how this is going to go down. You're not going to show up on the corner tomorrow.
        Alan: What? I don't understand... is it something I've done?
        Mattress Guy: I'm giving it to Dan.
        Alan: What? I've been a good customer, I've...
        Mattress Guy: Face it, you're on a 25-year warranty; you're not buying a mattress again for a while. These guys (nodding towards Dan and Jeff) are the future... they just bought a mattress that's a piece of crap. They're going to be back in two years.
        Dan: What?
