  • Quotes

    • (Al is heartbroken as Karen leaves with Dave)
      Tim: Another door slammed shut.
      (Al walks off)
      Tim: It was a joke, a joke.
      (Jill comes in, ecstatic)
      Jill: Isn't this great? What did I tell you? Everybody could feel the chemistry between Karen and Dave. I mean, I knew it. I knew that they would perfect...
      (Tim starts waving his hands and motioning to Al being heartbroken)
      Jill:...for each other. (After realizing) But I could be wrong!
      (Tim gestures to Jill being on the nose)

      (Tim hands Jill some dishes)
      Jill: I'm going to do the dishes now.

    • Wanda: Love hurts. And in Hank's case, it sweats too.

    • Karen: What's at the Cinemark Eighteen?
      Leslie: Eighteen movies with women thinner than me!

    • Karen: I'm fed up. I'm through with men.
      Tim: On behalf of all men, I'd just like to say thank you.

    • Karen: Then he said, "We should think about seeing other people," and we all know what that means.
      Jill: Yeah, it means he already is.

    • (Karen and Jill try to pick a movie)
      Karen: Nothing romantic! The way I'm feeling about men, I want to see something with "chainsaw" in the title.

    • Tim: Where's Al? We need him out here.
      Jill: We're using him as our love toy.

    • Tim: What are you doing with the hose?
      Brad: I thought I'd water the lawn.
      Tim: What did I tell you about water balloons?
      Brad: Fill them up real full so they bust on contact?
      Tim: That's right.

    • Al: I could bring jerky.
      Tim: They say you are what you eat, Al.

    • (After Tim charades "Jill Dead Meat)
      Jill: So I guess you're kind of annoyed that nobody's working on your engine.
      Tim: How would you feel about it? If you planned a wedding shower for three months, the night of the wedding shower, I brought these guys over to watch football?
      Jill: That happened, Tim.
      Tim: And you didn't like it, did ya?

    • Jill: Right now, the guys are telling Bob exactly what it feels like to be pregnant.
      Wanda: Yeah, right! The day one of those he-men goes to the john and shoots a nine-pound ham out his butt, then he can talk.

    • Wanda: When most people see a left turn signal, they assume you're going to turn left.
      Hank: A lane opened to my right, I had to make a decision.
      Wanda: The sidewalk was not the right decision.
