  • Quotes

    • Al: Why am I early on what used to be my bowling night? Good question, thank you for asking. Well as I entered the bowling alley ready for an exciting night of bonding, brewskies and barfing. What did I see? Women. Bowling. Overhand. So naturally I went up to one of these donut depositories and said in my nicest voice "Wedge it out the door beefload, it's my night to bowl." But instead of coming back at me verbally like I did to them. They took their doughy fists and they pounded on my until a mutual agreement was reached that I leave. Anyway, when I regained consciousness in a burning trash can, I realized that a) Thursday nights is now ladies night and b) you don't want to know how a bum puts out a trash can fire.

    • Al: Listen Jerry, bowling is a man's sport. If God had wanted women to bowl, he would have put their breasts on their backs so we would have something to watch while waiting our turn.
      Jerry Springer: And where are you calling from sir, 1952?
      Al: I wish. That was a great year for America. Ike was in the White House, women were in the kitchen, and guys like you were in the closet.
      Jerry Springer: And, you forgot to mention where you were. I suspect in a zoo someplace throwing your feces at a passing tourist.
      Al: Once again, I wish.

    • Al: Where a buck's enough to see their stuff.
      Guys: At the nudie bar!
      Jefferson: Where the breasts may be fake, but man do they shake.
      Guys: At the nudie bar!
      Bob Rooney: Where you swear like a sailor and wish you could nail 'er.
      Guys: At the nudie bar!
      Al: Where there's a cop at the door and a Kennedy on the floor.
      Guys: At the nudie bar!

    • Officer Dan: Aren't you Jerry Springer, The Masculine Feminist?
      Jerry: Yes, I am.
      Officer Dan: Tie him back up!

    • Al: Doesn't the Constitution guarantee us Life, Nudity, and the persuit of Happiness?
      Bob Rooney: Are you sure that's Nudity?

  • Notes

    • Notice the scene in which Peggy searches the phone book for a fake name to adopt, while Al is holding the tv show hostage. She suggests "Berkowitz" and "Borden", both of which Kelly rejects because she cannot spell them. This is actually a very clever inside joke, as David Berkowitz (aka The Son Of Sam) and Lizzy Borden were both notorious was Ted BUNDY.

    • NO MA'AM stands for National Organization of Men Against Amazonian Masterhood.
