    • Mickey (on the phone): So, I saw the baby fire in the news.
      Tommy: Jesus Christ. The baby fire? They're still callin' it the baby fire, I guess. You know, why don't they call it the '16 appliances plugged into one wall socket fire', how about that, huh?
      Mickey: Yeah, I know, Tom. I'm just sayin' what they're sayin.
      Tommy: Or how about 'God doesn't really give a shit about poor black kid's fire', how about that name, huh? It's unbelievible to me, it really is. What was God thinkin' here, Mick? What do you think? What did he have in mind?
      Mickey: We don't know. Maybe he was showin' his mercy, maybe he was savin' these kids from a fate far worse down the line somewhere. Either way, it's out of our hands.
      Tommy: Well, lemme tell 'ya somethin', okay? We carried those goddamn kids out in our goddamn hands because their moron parents plugged in faulty space heaters because they were tryin' to keep warm, 'cause their shit-ass landlords were too cheap to keep the goddamn heat on. God had nothin' to do with it, okay? God doesn't even venture into the equation, okay? But according to your theory, I guess God had Connor run over by a drunk driver, why? So he can spare him the fate, of maybe having cancer of the ass when he was 42 years old? Is that what's goin' on, Mick?
      Mickey: Or maybe because of his DNA he becomes a raging alcoholic and gets behind the wheel with a load on and runs over somebody else's innocent kid 15 years from now. Maybe that's what's happenin'. Did you ever think of that, huh? Tom? ... Tom?
      Tommy: Yeah. Nobody knows nothin', Mick. Not until it happens.
      Mickey: You're wrong. Everything happens for a reason.

    • Tommy (answering the phone): Yeah.
      Colleen: Hey, Dad.
      Tommy: Hey. What's wrong?
      Colleen: Nothing.
      Tommy (clears his throat): Need some money?
      Colleen: I can't believe that you would think that I would be callin' you...
      Tommy: Okay, you know what, sweetheart? I've raised from when you were a zygote. You got my DNA, okay? I can read you like a book. I know you're callin' me about money, and I know you're not callin' me about a little money, it must be the rent money, right? Because no one calls about a goddamn blender at this time of the night.
      Colleen: Yes.
      Tommy: Is your ring nosed, loser boyfriend kinda sittin' there coachin' you through this call?
      Colleen: No. (camera pans, so you can see her boyfriend sitting there)
      Tommy: Yeah, uh huh. ... I'll tell 'ya what, I'll drop the money by later tonight. And tell your boyfriend he can stop.
      Colleen (to her boyfriend): Stop. (into phone) Thanks, Dad.

    • Sean: So, listen, bro. I got kind of a confession to make. I know why you're gay.
      Mike: I'm not gay, dude.
      Sean: Yes, you are, come on. And here's why: your parents are gay.
      Mike: What?
      Sean: Your parents were gay, Mike. They're homos, come on.
      Mike: How do you know about that?
      Sean: That's the other part of the confession I was just getting to. You know the fire the other day at your mom's, that burn the whole house down? I broke in that night and I rooted around in the closets and I found all the pictures.
      Mike: Well, nevermind the pictures, are you sayin' that you burned my mom's house down?
      Sean: I'm sorry, dude. I'm really sorry. You can hit me if you want. (Mike slaps him, and the Sean slaps Mike right back)
      Mike: Ow. Asshole. You said I could hit you.
      Sean: I'm sorry, it was a reflex. Jesus. I feel terrible about your mom's house, I really do. It was an accident, Mike. I swear to God.
      Mike: So, that's why the guys are callin' you 'Zippo'.
      Sean: Yeah. So, how pissed are you?
      Mike: I don't know... About the slap?
      Sean: No, about the fire, asshole.
      Mike: Oh, uh... I--I I'm not really that pissed I guess, you know? I mean, to be honest, I... that place was kinda like... it had a lot of bad memories, you know? And-- And I'm kinda happy to be rid of it, I guess.
      Sean: Wow.
      Mike: Yeah. ... You know what, you're wrong about a few things. I'm not gay, and havin' gay parents, doesn't make you gay.
      Sean: Well, it's gotta increase the chances a little bit, don't 'ya think?
      Mike: I don't know. Maybe. Bro, can you just do me a favor?
      Sean: Of course, dude, anything. You name it.
      Mike: Promise?
      Sean: I promise.
      Mike: Can you not tell the guys about my parents?
      Sean: Okay, okay. I.. I wouldn't. I would never... I mean, I kinda already did.
      Mike: You dick! (Sean slaps him) Ow! What are you doing?
      Sean: Sorry. I was anticipating, I can't believe I... are you alright? (puts his hand on Mike's shoulder)
      Mike: Don't touch me, asshole.

    • Alicia (about Keela): She wants you in her life. She needs you. ... We need you. So, I was thinking, maybe we should give it another go.
      Franco: Uh... I... uh, Alicia, I uh, I kinda met someone. A girl.
      Alicia: You met a girl? No, you're kidding. Not you.
      Fracno: It's a... It's serious.
      Alicia: What does that mean, like a week or something?
      Franco: I gave her a ring.
      Alicia: So this is love?
      Franco: I guess so. I mean, yeah, totally. It's love.

    • Mike: I still feel so bad. Her cheating on you... with me... that bitch.
      Kenny: Well, you know, it's not the first time she cheated on anyone.
      Mike: So, she's done it before?
      Kenny: She was a nun when I met her so technically, you know, she was married to Jesus.
      Mike: I guess that makes you the other man. (laughs) That's a mighty impressive takeaway on your part.
      Kenny: Yeah, well, I'm real proud about that. Even if it means I'm takin' the express train to hell.
      Mike: But look, it was worth it, right?
      Kenny: No, not really. ... You know, I mean, you're family, Mike. That's what's important, you know, family, that... that unbreakable bond. And I'm willing to forgive and forget.
      Mike: Bros before hoes, right?
      Kenny: Bros before hoes.
      Mike: Now, let's get shitfaced and make it offical.

    • Tersea: Oh, wait. There's just one more thing. I'm gonna need to get my handcuffs, and my whip and my leather lingerie back. Also, the box of editible panties would be great.
      Kenny: I um... I ate all the editible panties.
      Tersea: You ate the panties... Great. (walks off)
      Franco: Chocolate flavored?
      Kenny: Yeah, and vanilla and strawberry. I had a neopolatan thing goin'.

    • Kenny (during a timeout, to the basketball team): 'Kay, guys let's huddle up. Yeah, I got nothin' to say, 'cause you guys are playing like the goddamn Celtics out there, it's just amazing. I mean, the Larry Bird, 1980's championship Celtics, okay? I mean, I got no notes, you know. So, what I think we should do, just to make things look better, I'm gonna draw a giant vagina on this little board here. While I'm doing that, you guys all make it look like I'm drawin' some sort of stratgy, okay? Instead of the giant kind of, vagina that I'm drawing, y'know, which really is the point of all this. I mean, really the reason why you play sports is to meet girls. So, what I want you to is, look at this giant black and white vagina that I'm drawing here, and then I want you to go out and I want you to score another 55 points, so we can all get laid and we can all make more money.

    • Tommy (on the phone): So, Katy's in a bad mood?
      Janet: Yeah.
      Tommy: She's not near the baby, is she?
      Janet: Oh, Jesus, no.

    • Needles (after they come back from the fire that killed 7 kids): You know, a lot of us, me included, you know, we say that the heros are the guys who don't make it back to the house. But tonight, you're my goddamn heros. That was a ball buster, and everyone of 'ya did what you were supposed to do. Includin' the new guy. I'm goddamn proud to be workin' with a crew like this. Any minute that alarm is gonna go and we will have to make run because some fat broad got her big ass stuck in a tub or some asshole went off the rails on some west side highway. He's all banged up, but he's still alive because he's as high as a goddamn kite. We are gonna answer those calls the same way we answered this one tonight. We lost the war, gentlemen. If anybody needs me, I'm gonna be in my office... I'm gonna call my wife and kids and have a nice big mug of Jack Daniels.
