  • QUOTES (14)

    • Hillary: Thanks a lot for being so freakin' happy!

    • Jack: I'd better lie down.
      Betty: Oh, Larry, Mike, help me get him to the couch. Don't worry. I won't let him steal the change from behind the cushions.
      Vicky: Well, he'd better not. Apparently, that's our savings account.

    • Dave: (to Hillary) So maybe now you'll understand why I get upset when I hear you say things like, "I can't wait to have a baby." I just don't want you to wind up miserable like me.

    • Dave: But if you think about it, isn't it hard, you know, having to pay for everything?
      Betty: I don't mind.
      Dave: I know you don't. But instead of throwing that money away on Jack, you know, you could be using it on your grandkids.
      Betty: Ha! Those kids are your headache. I'm spending it on me.

    • Dave: So that Jack, he's a real catch, huh?
      Betty: Oh, tell me about it.
      Dave: Yeah. I was thinking, Betty, you know, you were with somebody for 40 years, huh? Don't you want to get out there and, you know, play the field?
      Betty: Dave, I'm 67. How many players do you think are on the field?

    • Vicky: Starting tomorrow, I am managing this family's finances.
      Dave: All right, knock yourself out. You know, there's really not that much to manage.

    • Mike: Jack seems nice, Grandma, but he just reminds me of how much I miss Grandpa.
      Betty: Oh, yeah. Well, I miss him, too, Mike.
      Mike: Every time he saw me, you know, he'd give me a little gift -- $5, $10... $20... you know?
      Betty: Yeah. Well... he's dead.

    • Dave: (about Larry) Kid's got baseball fever.
      Jack: When I was his age, I had scarlet fever.

    • Dave: Hey, I don't know about you, but I really like that Jack guy.
      Vicky: Yeah? What's to like about him?
      Dave: He's nice. He's funny. And best of all, he's loaded.
      Vicky: He's a drinker?
      Dave: No, he's rich, but if he was a drinker, that would explain what he's doing with your mother.

    • Dave: (to Vicky) You invited Keith? Keith the baby daddy? The kid with the kid who's dating our kid? Are you kidding me?

    • Dave: (to Vicky) Sweetie, why'd you have to invite your mother over for dinner? Didn't we just see her, like, a month ago?

    • Dave: Wow, this really takes me back. Look at this one. This one's probably the most valuable one in the collection. Reggie Jackson, Mr. October.
      Larry: He was a centerfold?
      Dave: No, the playoffs are in October.

    • Larry: Hey, Dad, uh, you busy?
      Dave: No.
      Larry: Can I ask you something?
      Dave: No.

    • Mike: Hey, Hillary, you were an accident!
      Dave: Shut up, so were you!
