    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jimmy: Dad, you remember that TV show you made me watch about the tough guy with the silver hair?
        Burt: Maude?

      • Burt: I don't want Hope thinking I'm the dumbest one in the house.
        Jimmy: Fine. We'll both get out GED diplomas, and mom can be the dumb one. Is that okay with you, mom?
        Virginia: Hell no, that's not okay with me! If you guys get your GED, it'll be like Three Blind Mice, only two of them got their eyes fixed with that latex surgery.

      • Virginia: What is your game, mister?
        Burt: I don't want Jimmy to get smarter than me.
        Virginia: Well, if you get smart then I'll be the dumbest one, and I am not going from the Moe to the Curly in this trio, so put down the book and go watch TV. And nothing smart: no PBS and no NBC sitcoms.

      • Virginia: No offense, but we always knew you'd be dumb, 'cuz we're both dumb and that's how it works. Your problem is you made a baby with someone much smarter than you.
        Jimmy: You really think Lucy was that much smarter than me?
        Virginia: She was a college graduate who avoided the police for years while she went on a murder spree. You're a high school dropout who's been arrested five times for peeing in public.

      • Sabrina: (to Jimmy, about Hope) It's good you're proud of her and not threatened like my dad was. Every time I'd answer more Jeopardy questions than him, he'd accuse me of sleeping with Alex Trebek. It's a tough thing for a 12-year-old.
