      • Jill: Brad, you're still young. You'll meet other girls.
        Brad: I know, but how will any of these other girls measure up to Angela?
        Jill: Honey, I know this sounds trite, but it does happen to everybody. You're gonna find your true love, just like I did.
        Tim: I'm back, and I've got crabs!
        Brad: If that's true love, I'm better off alone.

      • Jill: What is the deal with you wearing nothing but black clothes lately?
        Mark: I like black.
        Randy: He's trying to create an image for himself -- you know, bleak and desperate. It's working.

      • Randy: Yeah, I wish we were going up there tonight. Lauren and her family are already up at the lake.
        Jill: Did you talk to her?
        Randy: Yeah, she says the weather's perfect and nice. The only thing missing is moi. That's French for "me".
        Mark: What's French for "barf"?
