    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Barney: Shame on you for making me use my rape whistle in a non-rape situation.

      • Jimmy: (after seeing Sabrina's commercial) That's not fair. You used my daughter without my permission. Would you make your own baby?

      • Virginia: Burt, why are you infusiating yourself in other people's lives?
        Burt: I like this guy. He reminds me of me. We both have brown hair and hate museums.

      • Frank: (in his commercial) Come by if you want. Or don't, whatever, I don't care, I don't own the place. If I did, it'd be called Frank's. But it's not.

      • Frank: Barney, it shouldn't say "panic," it should say "wide spread panic" because nothing sells groceries like fear of an impending disaster.
        Jimmy: Frank, it seems wrong to scare people for no reason.
        Frank: How many more dead birds gotta fall from the sky before you people wake up?
