    • QUOTES (5)

      • Ben: (to Melissa) It's always what Dad wants to do, or what Dad wants me to do – baseball, football, whatever. He wants me to be reasonable and cooperative, a-and that's exactly what he won't be with me. (long pause) Mom, all that time he wasn't around– he wasn't here… a-and now he's here, and in my face all the time. I didn't get to do what I wanted to do when I was a kid and he was sick. Now I gotta do what he wants?

      • Lula: (about a scheduled phone call) I've got a seven o'clock. Tiffany's gonna quiz me on my spelling, and I'm gonna give her advice with her boyfriend.
        William: Tiffany's got a boyfriend?
        Lula: It's mostly just her imagination, so don't worry. Nobody's having sex. (she leaves the room)
        William: (under his breath) Tell me about it.

      • (The smoke alarm is beeping while Ben studies beside the stove.)
        Melissa: Ben, I asked you to watch the eggs!
        Ben: I did. I watched them burn.

      • Arnie: (about Akani's appearance) Wow. Who knew she cleaned up so nice.
        Akani: I do "ladies who lunch" in my sleep.
        Arnie: Yeah, I have done a couple ladies at lunch myself.
        Akani: High school cafeteria ladies don't count.
        Arnie: Oh, they all count.

      • Melissa: The water heater is broken. Again.
        William: I guess you better get used to taking a cold shower. (she gives him a pointed look and crosses her arms) Hey, some of us around here have been taking 'em for a while.
        Melissa: Hilarious.
