  • QUOTES (12)

    • Dan: Hey, Fern, you want to tell Charlie I'm her supervisor, and she should check her attitude?
      Fern: You're not her supervisor.
      Dan: I know, but could you tell her that?

    • Claire: This wedding is getting too big. Where do you want to do the invites?
      Mike: Swifty Copy!
      Claire: Swifty Copy? Not Swifty Copy.
      Mike: They have the best price, and they're swift. I mean, if they're not swift, it would be ballsy with that title.

    • Anita: We fix anything.
      Dan: Even Pac-Man? Well, Ms. Pac-Man; it's like Pac-Man, only she's a girl, so she's got a bow on her head. Well, it's not really her head, she's a circle.
      Anita: I know what Pac-Man is and she's not a circle; she's a pie.

    • Jeff: You and Mike are getting married? That's great, congratulations.
      Claire: Thanks.
      Jeff: Dan never told me.
      Claire: Probably because he got distracted, or because I didn't tell him.
      Jeff: You didn't tell him?
      Claire: I meant to, I'm going to, please don't tell him. I will.
      Jeff: I don't know; it's kind of hard to keep something like that from a guy.
      Claire: No, I've been doing it for a while; it's surprisingly easy.

    • Dan: I didn't think anybody was running against you.
      Mayor: Well, they aren't.
      Dan: So I don't have a choice.
      Mayor: Nope.
      Dan: So you're just walking around, knocking on people's doors for no reason?
      Mayor: I admit, it's not as productive as sitting around drinking beer and playing video games.
      Dan: Well, for your information, I'm out of beers and this video game's broken!
      Mayor: Touché!

    • Jeff: Did you just say you were running for mayor?
      Dan: Yeah, somehow, I thought it would be more dramatic, but it just seemed...
      Jeff: Stupid?

    • (looking at the newspaper with the headline: Entry Fee Weeds Out Joke Candidate)
      Dan: I said action shot! And this caption makes us look bad.
      Jeff: I hate it when they do accurate captions.
      Dan: I suppose all ink is good ink.
      Jeff: What about that stuff octopuses spray on your face?
      Dan: On land, all ink is good ink.

    • Dan: I'm not a joke candidate.
      Jeff: No, I know, because to be a joke candidate, you need a thousand dollars.

    • Claire: You guys are still the same, still playing the same arcade game...
      Jeff: Whoa, whoa, whoa, I wasn't playing.
      Claire: Surrounded by empties...
      Jeff: It's his place; I'm married!
      Claire: When are you two going to grow up?
      Jeff: I've got a kid; I've got digital cable! Okay, there's a bit of a drop-off between the first and second thing.

    • Jeff: Who's going to drop a grand on Ms. Pac-Man?
      Dan: I don't know... there's some sucker out there. You want to buy it?
      Jeff: You need to work on your pitch.

    • Jeff: You sure you want to do this?
      Dan: You know what? I picked the goal, I made the sacrifice, now nothing's going to stop me! (to the receptionist) There's no GST, is there? (she shakes her head) Then nothing's going to stop me!

    • Mike: I can't believe they spelled 'nuptials' wrong. That is the last time that we go to Swifty Copy for wedding invitations.
      Claire: Uh, hopefully.
