  • Another episode about character development. (Spoilers)

    9.0
    This episode seemed to be mainly about Tommy and Janet getting back together. Unfortunately, as the end of the episode reveals, that isn't going to happen just yet. Every time Tommy takes a step closer to repairing his life, something happens that takes him two steps back. I hope that soon enough something good happens to Tommy. Franco is still a great character, and he's definitely one of my favorite characters in this series. Although, the whole crew is great and very well acted. I'm looking forward to seeing the next episode, and overall I give this episode, Butterfly, a 9 out of 10.moreless

    • (Janet is drunk and kisses Tommy)
      Tommy: And what are we doing?
      Janet: We're gonna go upstairs.
      Tommy: Oh, we are?
      Janet: Mmhmm.
      Tommy: Okay. Now, not that I don't wanna go upstairs, but okay, where are we going with this?
      Janet: What, you don't want me?
      Tommy: No, that's not what I said. I did not say that. What --
      Janet: Tommy, we were always at our best (kisses him) when we were in bed. A million problems everywhere else, but in bed... (kisses him) Come on.
      Tommy: Alright.

    • Tommy: What're you ladies talking about?
      Franco: The firefighter calender, I'm doing it again this year.
      Sean: Yeah, he gets to choose his own month.
      Tommy: Great.
      Mike: So what month are you going for?
      Sean: I'd try for February. Work that whole Valentine's Day thing.
      Franco: Nah, common mistake. Shortest month of the year.
      Mike: So, what's a good month?
      Franco: Well, you definitly don't wanna be December. Nobody pays attention to you until the last 30 days of the year. You wanna be in the first four or five months to maximize booty potential. I'm thinkin' April, May, in there, you know? It's spring. Winter clothes are comin' off. Chicks are thinkin' about gettin' laid.
      Mike: Yeah? Interesting.
      Franco: Yeah, it's a science, and I'm the mad scientist. (Mike laughs)

    • Lou: Two grand for a porch?
      Franco: Last one we did, we got what, 600 bucks?
      Chief: Who is this guy? The king of chumps?
      Tommy: Nah, some shrink, you know? I figure we get Charlie Walsh's cousin to give us the lumber for what, 300 bones? And we'll divide the rest up. You in?
      Lou: Yeah, for that kind of money, I might show up in a tux.
      Tommy: Franco?
      Franco: In.
      Mike: I'll do it.
      Tommy: Let me tell you something kid: First time doing a porch job, you work for free.
      Lou: Let me clarify further. Not only do you not get paid, you generally do all the work while we sit around drinking beer and shooting the shit.
      Tommy: And you gotta buy the beer.
      Franco: Yeah, a couple of those suitcase things. MGD is good.
      Mike: Guys, I just remembered... I'm busy.
      Tommy: Yeah, you're busy helping us queer-bait.

    • Mike: So you're doin' oral on a chick---
      Lou: Is that required?
      Mike: Yeah.
      Lou: Alright, I'm out. But keep going. (Tommy laughs)

    • (The day after they had sex)
      Tommy: I didn't come over to you last night, you came lookin' for-- and now you're going to tell me that it shouldn't have happened?
      Janet: I was drunk, I was frustrated. I'm tired of being alone.
      Tommy: You're not alone, okay? I live across the street. Which you gladly took advantage of last night.
      Janet: But you don't understand. I need something more-- something that I can't get from you. (Tommy makes a face) Yes, the sex was great. But the sex is always great with us, Tommy. We've never had a problem connecting on a physical level, but an emotional level--
      Tommy: Oh, Jesus Christ. I knew that was what you were going to say!
      Janet: Hey, I can't do this anymore, I'm tired of being this lonely.
      Tommy: You know what? You're nuts, you should see a shrink because you are--
      Janet: I am sorry.
      Tommy: You're sorry? Bullshit. You come over my house. You lure me into bed, you bang me, you get my hopes up and now you're sorry?
      Janet: I wanted to see if it still worked.
      Tommy: If what worked? My dick?

    • Lou: Hey, I went with Dwight the other night to the city, we caught a show and afterwards I look into this bar and who do I see? Our very own little probie making out with some broad to beat the band.
      Tommy: So...?
      Lou: So... this chick is old enough to be his mother.
      Franco: Oh god, I just caught a chill.
      Tommy: How old?
      Lou: I don't know, I didn't have time to cut her in half and count the rings but she's pretty old, I mean for him. I'm guessin' late 40's.
      Sean: Wow, really?
      Lou: Yeah. (Mike walks up) Hey, speak of the devil. Hey, kid, your ears burning?
      Mike: Huh?
      Tommy: Hey, are you bangin' some old broad?
      Lou: And if you are a word of caution: A broken hip takes a very long time to heal.
      Mike: Hey, she's not that old. She's only 46.
      Sean: Well, that's nothin' in dog years.
      Franco: Yeah, which probably applies to her.

    • Franco: Where are you going?
      Lou: I'm going inside to take a leak, unless you want to me to do it in your beer.
      Franco: No, once is enough, thanks.
