    • QUOTES (5)

      • Maw Maw: (to Jimmy) Truth is, you did me a favor. Oh, Heaven's great. But it's awfully hot there, there are a lot of fires everywhere, and last night, at karaoke, Idi Amin and Hitler did a great version of "Ebony and Ivory."

      • Jimmy: Oh, this is just like that movie Inception. I have absolutely no idea what is going on.

      • Jimmy: Oh, mom, you're huge! Are you having an allergic reaction or something?
        Virginia: Yeah, I'm allergic to fast food. If I eat more than 350 chicken nuggets a day, I blow up like a balloon.

      • Virginia: If the whole world sees this, we're gonna be famous in the bad way, like that no-name actor from Lost who married that sixteen-year-old girl!

      • Virginia: Trailers are the best part. I enjoy Jack Black, thirty seconds at a time.
