    i was completely let down by this premiere, it comes across as goofy instead of funny. its about a family that is apparently rebelious and bad of the bad, but they look like pathetic losers that arent criminal masterminds at all. the dad got five years in prison after expecting 4 months, how could someone be that dumb to miscalculate by that much. it has a cliche little sister who loves to make life miserable for her older sister. and the older sister who is the ditzy one but doesnt have that comic appeal to make you laugh at her dimwittedness. lackluster bad guys named the hongs tells the mother to give them a airlume back that her son stole in a house robbery which ends up in a quite boring storyline. it could get better but chances are not good. the characters are pretty hard to love especcially the two daughters who just come off as annoying and has know comedic appeal at all. the only good character that is watchable is the robber/son who had a couple of funny one liners. bottomline is so far it is incredibly mediocre and such a dissapointment.moreless

    • Cheryl: There's two rules this family has always lived by. One, we do not invade people's homes. At least, not when they're in them.
      Cal: Wha- She wasn't supposed to be there, obviously.
      Cheryl: And two, we never, ever, use violence!
      Cal: I didn't! She did! She should register her feet as, like, lethal weapons or something.

    • Cheryl: Let's go get Grandpa.
      Heather: Mom, no. No. Do not let him move in here! Remember last time, he thought my closet was the bathroom and peed on four pairs of my shoes? He's crazy.
      Cheryl: He's family. Family beats crazy.

    • (Lying in bed while kissing)
      Wolf: And get the money off Charlie for those phone cards, right?
      Cheryl: Been there, done that.
      Wolf: And you gotta get those cases of scotch to Falini.
      Cheryl: Mm-hmm. Just leave it in my very capable hands.
      Wolf: Hey! Don't forget to shred the tracking numbers.
      Cheryl: Wolf, shut up and get on top of me.

    • Cheryl: You won't be seeing us anymore, sergeant. The West family will no longer be bothering the Palm Spring Police Department.
      Sergeant Mack: You moving?
      Cheryl: No. We're turning over a new leaf. We're changing our business model.
      Sergeant Mack: (laughs) Oh. You crack me up, Cheryl. A leopard can't change his spots. Can't be done.
      Cheryl: I say it can. Just wait and see.

    • Cheryl: (answering her phone) Ugh, Heather, this is really not...
      Heather: (cutting her off) Mom, you have to come home right now. Grandpa's insane. He thinks I'm grandma.
      Cheryl: It's just the Alzheimers. Can't you just play along for a couple of hours?
      Heather: He thinks I'm pregnant with daddy.
      Grandpa West: Okay, Rita. Time to go now.
      Heather: Grandpa, go away!
      Grandpa West: Rita!
      Heather: Mom, he wants to go with me to the delivery room so he can cut the cord. If you don't come home right now, I am leaving.
      Cheryl: Okay, fine. I'll go get Hope from school. She can miss half a day. She knows how to talk to him.
      Heather: Yeah, she speaks fluent pervert.

    • Heather: You're the one who's always telling me to get off my butt and do something with my life.
      Wolf: (from the shower) Everything okay?
      Cheryl: Fabulous. When I told you to get off your butt, I did not mean put it on exhibit.
      Heather: These are modeling photos, mom.
      Cheryl: For what? An invisible line of clothing?
      Heather: Mom, Rene is a brilliant artist. See? Totally legitimate. He shot Gisele Bundchen when she was 14. You know what she made last year?
      Cheryl: Some dirty old men very happy?
      Heather: Over $30 million.

    • Sergeant Mack: (about Logan speaking to Cheryl) He's your big success story, isn't he? Pretty ironic, though, him being admitted to the bar the very same day his daddy's put behind 'em.

    • Cheryl: Heather, rise and shine. Cops.
      Heather: How am I supposed to shine if my skin cells can't get enough sleep?
      Cheryl: Hope, get up. We got company.
      Hope: Why don't they just move in and save on gas?
