  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Jeremy: I had an affair with Toni by mistake, and Nancy found out because I told her.

    • Mark: It probably looks like I was ready to punch him, when actually I was going to use the Buddhist as a human shield.

    • Mark: John or Paul, who is the best? I mean, Paul, obviously, but for the sake of argument...

    • Toni: Affairs are great! They're simple and no one gets hurt.

    • Mark: Brilliant. The woman you love has only been single for a few minutes and already you've found her a nice, new boyfriend.

    • Mark: I'm a natural! Maybe I should try it on someone better looking...

    • Mark: It's your day, and even if I have to die of anxiety making an off-the-cuff speech, we're going to keep it special.

    • Super Hans: I've got to think about this; I don't know if you can be trusted in a combat situation.

    • Super Hans: I was in charge of the buttons, Mark. I drew a line; you crossed that line.

    • Mark: You're getting married? Why?
      Jeremy: Because we love each other! Also, partially, for Visa reasons.

    • Nancy: Honey, you understand that this would just be an administrative procedure?
      Jeremy: Exactly. The happiest administrative procedure of our lives!

    • Jeremy: Do you think maybe, if I plead and plead and plead, she'll forget all about it and things will go back to like before?
      Mark: Honestly?
      Jeremy: Quite honestly. Not brutally honestly.
      Mark: Then... yeah, absolutely.

    • Mark: (As Jeremy walks up the aisle) I tried. I failed. Got to let him make his own mistakes. Just like Dad with me and the strimmer.
