    Having just watched the first season episodes and growing to really like the characters in Raising Hope, I particularly love Virginia's little habit of dropping terms like oldtimers (disease) and procrasterbating into her speech. Does anybody else like these little head shakers?

    -Quit your procrasterbating and go talk to him.

    -How's your philostrophical journey through the meaning of life going?

    -Raising a baby will dramastically change your life.

    - that evilness has to be hermeditary

    -They never found the Limberger baby, you know.

    -I bet you that Jeffery Dahmer was locked in a crib. And the BLT Killer! And Tyra Banks!

    -It's a hypodermic situation... It's hypothetical, by the way. What'd I say? Hypodermic.

    -Burt, why are you infusiating yourself in other people's lives?

    -the lady with the weird body noises. We call her Georgia O'Queef. (Zoe - not Virginia]

    There's been about one of these gems per episode for a while now. Which other ones have you caught?

    Her vision has been fine since she had that latex surgery.

    Someone at my work was giving a presentation, and twice during the presentation he said "dramastically" and then corrected himself to "dramatically." Hehe.

    Yeah, I like it.

    -He may not be a Michael,. but he could be a Tito, or a Reggie. (Burt - copying Joe Jackson's child rearing skills)

    -The-Saurus, it's like The-Dictionary's cousin. (Jimmy)

    -you had ambrosia. (Burt) Anemia. (Virginia) Anemia! (...to Jimmy about his amnesia.)
