  • Quotes

    • Millie: Last night, in my dream, you killed a giraffe.
      Stan: Oh, interesting. Okay, well, what does this tell us? Uh, giraffes are orange, stripey... not stripey, polka-dotty, tall... Maybe you're concerned about your height.
      Millie: I'm more concerned with you strangling that defenceless creature with his own bow-tie!
      Stan: Bow-tie?
      Millie: We were on our way to a pot-luck. Thanks to you, the poor frogs never got their potato salad. Happy?

    • Uncle Dave: Hello. Is Joyce in?
      Crystal: Yup.
      Taylor: You need to be pretty specific with this one.

    • Stan: You want a ride home?
      Millie: No, no, I'll walk.
      Stan: You sure? It looks like rain.
      Millie: Oh, I like rain; it's like watching angels cry.

    • (watching Uncle Dave's play)
      Taylor: This is familiar but I can't quite place it.
      Joyce: It's Romeo And Juliet, except they're cowboys for some reason.
      Taylor: I was way off! I was going to say The Hobbit.
      Joyce: That'd be better. This is awful.

    • Taylor: (to Uncle Dave) Well, the good news is, you're going to have a lot more time to focus on your film career.
      Joyce: I suppose the bad news is he's fired?
      Taylor: There is no bad news. He is fired, but that's part of the good news.

    • (reading from the Dream Interpretation book)
      Stan: To see a giraffe in your dream suggests you should take a look at the overall picture.
      Millie: Is this going to be a regular thing? You showing up at my door to read books? (pause) Because that would be awesome!

    • Millie: Perspective, huh? Well, I guess it makes sense. This morning, I was upset because there wasn't any hot water in the shower. But, you're saying, "What does that matter? We're all going to die anyway," right?
      Stan: Um, not exactly.
      Millie: Yeah, but that's the gist of it. You don't kill giraffes and we're all going to die.
      Stan: (looking confused) Okay. So, we're good?
      Millie: Yup. All good. See you tomorrow.

    • Crystal: (on the phone) No, I don't know what rhymes with 'talent'; you've got the wrong number. (she hangs up)
      Taylor: Oh, yeah, "Rymes With Talent", it's the name of my new agency. Taylor Rymes... Rymes With Talent. Anyway, if someone calls here, just take a message.
      Crystal: Why would I do that? I don't even want to do the job I'm paid for.
      Taylor: 'Cause Joyce might like to know who's been filling in her crosswords with obscenities.
      Crystal: Fine.

    • (after seeing Uncle Dave's commercial on TV)
      Taylor: Well, of course he was good; he's the greatest! You could land a plane on that jaw line! But it was a diaper commercial!
      Joyce: So?
      Taylor: Nobody's going to cast "the old guy who pees his pants" in their next movie.
      Joyce: You got him the part. Didn't you read the script?
      Taylor: Of course I read the script. I just stopped when I saw "cruise ship". I'm going to have to let him go. He's unmarketable now.

    • Stan: Oh, man, this is the worst day ever! My wife is thinking of leaving me...
      Anna: What? You think I'm leaving you?
      Stan: My one and only client is on the verge of insanity...
      Millie: What? You think Anna's leaving you?

    • (end voice over)
      Millie: Little Missy Grumpaloo wasn't used to having a job, and it made her very, very tired. That night, she went to bed and had a wonderful dream that she was at the beach. The next day at work, Missy took as many naps as she could, but she couldn't dream her way back to the beach; so, she pretended to be sick to get out of work, and went to the beach for real, where she laid on the sand, and fell asleep... and dreamed that she was back at work.
