      • Tim: (about Beth) How did it go?
        Randy: Well, we're past the nod stage.
        Tim: What?
        Randy: She gave me a kiss.
        Jill: What!?
        Randy: Mom!
        Tim: (to Jill) What would you have done if I kissed you on the first date?
        Jill: I would have woken up.

      • Randy: I just made a jerk of myself in front of a girl.
        Wilson: Well, Randy Taylor, welcome to the tribe of men!
        Randy: I mean, I don't get it. I really like Beth but ever since she got here, I've been saying really dumb things.
        Wilson: Well Randy, probably that's because you're sailing in unfamiliar waters. I'm sure the first time Romeo met a girl, he probably said some pretty dumb things too.
        Randy: Did Romeo ask Juliet if she wanted a booger cookie?

      • Ashley: You know, Beth, Randy's a really funny guy.
        Beth: Really? I like funny people.
        Brad: Yeah, Randy. Say something funny.
        Randy: (long pause, doesn't know what to say) Okay, um...I've got a joke. What do you call bad lemonade?
        Beth: What?
        Randy: Lemon lemonade!
        Beth: I don't get it.
        Randy: Man, that's the last time I use one of Dad's jokes!

      • Randy: (about a girl he likes) What should I say to her?
        Jill: Well, you could say something like "hello."
        Randy: Yeah. "Hello." That's good. "Hello, Beth." No. Maybe...(turns around and turns his head back seductively) "Hi, Beth." Or maybe "Hi" and no "Beth." I mean, she knows who she is, right? Right?
        Jill: Right, right. Will you relax?

      • Jill: (about Randy's class picture) Let me see yours.
        Randy: I look like a total dork.
        Jill: Oh yeah, right. Come on. Let me see it. Where are you?
        Randy: Well...(Randy shows her the picture)
        Jill: Well, you look very cute for someone who's looking at the girl sitting next to him with his tongue hanging out.

      • Randy: What were the first words you said to a girl you liked?
        Wilson: I believe they were "Hidey-ho, good-looking"!

      • Randy: I can't believe Beth is coming here! What if I don't know what to say?
        Tim: Just talk about yourself the whole time. Women love that.
        Jill: I'm surprised you didn't tell him to burp for Beth.
        Tim: That doesn't come until the second date.

      • Jill: (when Randy is nervous about talking to a girl he likes) Pretend I'm Beth. Talk to me.
        Randy: I don't know what to say.
        Jill: Tell me I'm pretty.
        Randy: Are you Beth or Mom?
        Jill:(long pause) Does it matter?
        Randy: You're pretty, Beth. ( not sure what to say) And Mom.

      • Irma: (about her new baby granddaughter) I can't believe my sweet radish has a little cabbage of her own.
        Tim: Where did the cabbage get delivered, in a salad bar?

      • Car Alarm: (after Al sets off a car alarm) Back off Flannel Man! Back off Flannel Man!
