Berta: What's wrong with you?
Charlie: I caught something.
Berta: There's a surprise.
Jake: Hey, Rose, you wanna go see a movie later?
Rose: Maybe. We'll see how your uncle's feeling. He's very, very sick.
Alan: So, basically, what we're saying here is, you'll go to the movies with anybody but me.
Jake: Not "anybody"—I wouldn't go with Hitler.
Charlie: (to his congested date) You can use this.
Lulu: Nasal spray—thank you, Charlie, that's so thoughtful.
Charlie: Well, you are gonna need to breathe through your nose.
Alan: Rose got you sick? It had nothing to do with you sticking your tongue down the throat of a flu-riddled bimbo?
Charlie: Mommy, I don't feel good.
Evelyn: Oh, Charles, don't tell me you've got another case of the Bangkok drippy-drip.
Pedicurist: (in Korean, while doing Evelyn's toenails) I hate painting the hooves of this white she-bitch.
Jake: Do you really want to do something with me?
Jake: How about if you drive me to the mall so I can see a movie with my friends and then you pick me up when we're done?
Charlie: Rose, I thought you were in England.
Rose: I was asked to leave.
Rose: I'm a loving nurturer.
Jake: Uncle Charlie says you're a crazy stalker.
Rose: Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.

As Charlie decides what he needs to help himself recover from his cold, he continues to add one more thing (cough medicine, Scotch, etc.), mimicking Steve Martin's moving-out scene (depicted in print ads) where Martin continues to add 'one more thing' he needs as he leaves his Bel Air mansion in the 1979 movie The Jerk.
Charlie refers to Rose as, "Nurse Ratched", comparing her to the malevolent nurse from Ken Kesey's 1962 novel/Milos Forman's 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
