    This episode was so amazing. I have not watched this show since I believe 2006 and I was amazed by this episode. Michael Rappaport gives off an amazing performance in this episode, and in all the others for that matter. I loved when the other two decided to quit after Dave already did. I loved when everyone kept singing that song around Hillary. It was funny when she said she was a loser and the man gave her an army application, and her friend said that she was a loser, too. This episode was definitely a series classic to an already perfect series.moreless

      Dave: Heh... It's like you and I in college, except we had an excuse, we were baked.
      Vicky: Didn't you guys hear us honking?
      Hillary: Yeah, we heard you.
      Vicky: Well, we needed your help with the bags! Why didn't you come?
      Mike: That question sort of answers itself, doesn't it?
      Larry: (points and giggles) Heehehehe.

    • (Joe asking about Dave's new business)
      Joe: One question, will there be bagels?
      Dave: Absolutely not, that would be a frivolous expense.
      Joe: Douchebag.
      Dave: (smiles) Thanks, Joe!

    • (Vicky on the fact that Dave needs to first invest money into the business)
      Vicky: Honey, don't be ridiculous, I support you 100%. I'm just seeing a whole new future for us.
      (cut to scene where Dave and Vicky are homeless in rags)
      Vicky: Hey, Dave, my turn to steer [the shopping cart].
      Dave: Heh...

    • (Joe tells Dave that he can't be a part of the new company, either)
      Joe: I'm sorry, but I'm out, too. I spoke to my wife.
      Dave: What? What? Did she say it's a pipe dream and it's never going to work, is that what she's saying?
      Joe: No, no. She was very supportive... until I told her you were involved... I'm sorry, buddy.

    • (Larry explaining why he doesn't want to get his driver's permit)
      Larry: It's just all happening so fast. I'm still getting used to having... hair down there.

    • Vicky: $8,000... (sits down with worried look) ...and that's just the deposit. What are we gonna do?
      Dave: (starts having a panic attack) It's starting again, sweetie. It's like that acid trip we took in college, except there's no pretty colors or that feeling groovy part.

    • (Dave opens the door to Mr. Park's office, desperate to get his job back)
      Dave: Mr. Park, I think we need to talk - whoa! (sees Mr. Park with another woman) Oh, um, hello, Mr. Park, and hello, Not-Mrs. Park. Wow, it must be super-casual Friday.
      Mr. Park: Uh... hello, Dave. Hey, uh, I hear you started your own company. How's that going?
      Dave: Actually, I've been thinking it over, and I decided that I wanna come back and work here. I'm assuming you're not gonna have a problem with that, right, Mr. Park? (waves to the woman) And you won't either, right, Not-Mrs. Park?
      Mr. Park: Good to have you back, Dave.
      Dave: (starts to leave, then turns around) Hey, see my new cell phone - it has all the new features. Look, check it out, smile! (takes picture and leaves)

    • Dave: (to Mr. Park) All right, that's it. You know what? Why don't you just kiss my ass, you miserable, uptight douche bag? I quit, okay? I'm sick and tired of taking your crap. You walk around here like you own the place. Yeah, maybe you do own the place, but that's not the point. Okay, the point is there is a thing called respect, courtesy, and providing a decent free breakfast. Oh, and by the way, your barren wife asked me to give you something. Oh, where is it? Oh, here it is. (reaches inside his pocket, pulls out his hand and gives him the finger) **** you!

    • Dave: Hillary, I'm not letting you join the Army, you understand?
      Hillary: Well, guess what?! I am almost 18 years old, and when I am, you won't be able to order me around anymore. No one will. Not you, not Mom, not anybody!
      Dave: You seem to have a firm grasp of what Army life is gonna be like.

    • Dave: (on the phone) Yeah, well, hey, you're never too young to think about life insurance. Okay. Then just put your mommy on the phone.

    • Dave: Where is this coming from? Have you been talking to a recruiter?
      Hillary: Okay, first off, Cal is more like a friend. And he said that the Army could really help me turn my life around. Plus, they'll help pay for college and they'll teach me new skills.
      Dave: Yeah? Well, is Cal aware of the fact that you don't have any old skills?
      Hillary: What's your problem? What is so wrong about giving back to my country?! God! You traitors!
      Dave: Hey, why don't you go shave your head, GI Jane.

    • Dave: When driviing in heavy fog, do you keep your headlights on, headlights off, or headlights on low beam?
      Larry: Well, obviously I wouldn't be driving in heavy fog, because that's when werewolves are most likely to be out and about...
      Dave: What the hell are you talking about? What do you... what? No, weirdo, low beam... What's the matter with you, man?

    • Dave: I don't know about you two, but I'm sick and tired of working for that douche bag. I mean, when's it going to be my turn to be the boss and have people call me the douche bag?
      Joe: Apparently, a lot of people around here already think you're the boss.

    • Dave: Can you believe these kids?
      Vicky: What can I say? Your sperm and my eggs, it's a powerful combination, honey.
      Dave: It certainly defeated every form of birth control we tried.

    • Dave: Larry, did you study your DMV booklet so you can finally get your learner's permit? 'Cause I'm sick and tired of driving your ass around everywhere.
      Larry: For your information, I did study it.
      Dave: Did you?
      Larry: Yes, I did.
      Dave: Did you?
      Larry: No, I did not.
