      • Al: Oh. Yeah, sorry, Peg. I'd take the kids off your hands but the manager here says that he won't allow pets or kids and Bud and Kelly fall in there somewhere.
        Peg: Oh, it's not that, it's just that uh... Well, you know, I'm worried about Bud. He's been getting into a lot of fights lately, and, and I thought you should know about that.
        Al: Well, I certainly should. I am still the boy's father, and if he's getting in fights then I should be there to congratulate him. I'll stop over tomorrow right after work.

      • Peg: You wish. Now look, I know that Bruce isn't perfect. He doesn't have your father's animal magnetism... or his animal scent... or his hairy knuckles... but what he does have is money. Enough to turn me into a lady of leisure.
        Kelly: Mom, if you were any more leisurely you'd be unconscious.
        Peg: Yes, but I'd be unconscious on a suede couch with a big screen TV. (turning around) And a maid serving me bonbons, right, Bruce?
        Bruce: (chuckling) Uno momento, por favor.
        Kelly: (to Bud) I get it now, he's just using Mom to get his green card!

      • Bud: Now, remember, he's gonna be trying to buy our affection, so to really rake it in, I suggest we play hard to get.
        Kelly: Play what?
        Bud: Hard to get. (Kelly shrugs, totally clueless) Ah, it's like when you have a date and you decide to wear a bra?
        Kelly: Ohhh, right. Okay, baby!
