Alan: Sherri invited me to her house for dinner tonight. I think she wants to have sex.
Charlie: With who?
Alan: With me.
Charlie: With you. Hang on a second. (looks at the newspaper) Nope, no snowballs reported in Hell, no sightings of flying pigs.
Charlie: So, how you getting to the restaurant?
Alan: Sherri's picking me up.
Charlie: Ah! Very convenient.
Alan: Why? Because she's been here before? Because she's been here with you? Because you've had sex with her in every room in the house?
Charlie: No, because you can't drive, but it's interesting to see how your mind works.
Alan: If I ever had a woman like that, I would cherish her, I would worship her, I would start a small country and put her face on a stamp so I could lick the back of her head.
Charlie: When making love, the way to slow yourself down is to think of something completely non-sexual.
Alan: What do you think of?
Alan: What does marriage have to do with sex?
Charlie: Alan, let me give you a piece of advice. Alcohol impairs your ability to make good decisions. We don't want you to lose that ability... we want her to.
Alan: I took a piece of whole wheat toast to the eye.
Charlie: Well, you know how women like you to go slow...
Alan: Really? My ex-wife put a premium on brevity. Her motto was "less is more and none is perfect."
