Jake mentions the title "Can You Eat Human Flesh With Wooden Teeth?"
Charlie: Jake, it takes more than sex to make a man happy. You also need money.
Alan: You know why I was being audited? Not because I have unsubstantiated deductions, which I have. Not because I take the occasional cash payment from a client and forget to report it, which I do. It was because no one at the IRS could believe I was paying as much alimony as I claimed. It took me three hours to convince them that, yes, I am that big a shmuck.
Charlie: You like cold pizza, right?
Jake: Sure. (Charlie throws the pizza to Jake) This is frozen.
Charlie: Yeah. If you sit on it, it'll thaw by lunch.
Jake: Can I have some privacy, please?
Charlie: For what? You're eleven.
Jake: That's close to puberty.
Charlie: (Charlie walks into Jake's room) Get dressed, buddy, I'm taking you to school.
Jake: I can't. I'm sick.
Charlie: Yeah, well, bite me.
Charlie: Don't screw with me, shorty. I only got, like, nine hours of sleep last night.
Alan: (walks into Charlie's room) Let's go, sleepyhead. Rise and shine, up and at 'em.
Charlie: Get out of my room, or I'll kill you with my bare hands.
Jake: (regarding Alan leaving Jake out in the rain) I can't believe you forgot me.
Alan: I said I'm sorry.
Jake: You forgot me.
Alan: I know, and I feel terrible.
Jake: How many kids you got?
Berta: Show of hands—who spent their day pre-soaking the shorts of a kid who leaves more skid marks than a getaway car? (Berta raises her hand) That's what I thought. Now, if you ladies will excuse me. I have three buses to catch. (Berta leaves the house)
Charlie: I bet she catches them by hand.
Jake: (on Alan giving him an artichoke for part of his lunch) An artichoke?
Charlie: Maybe you can trade it for something good.
Jake: With who? One of the slow kids?
Charlie: Give it a shot. Tell him it's a puppy.
Alan: What's taking you so long?
Jake: I can't find my other shoe.
Alan: So put on a different pair.
Jake: But this one's on already.
Alan: Come on, Jake. It's time to get up for school.
Jake: I can't go to school, I'm sick.
Alan: What's wrong?
Jake: I think I have acid reflex disease.
Alan: Really? Acid reflex disease? Where does it hurt?
Jake: Um... my head?
Alan: Nice try.
Alan: Um, Judith's going to Hawaii for a week. So Jake's staying here.
Charlie: I'm shocked!
Jake: I like it better when Dad takes me to school.
Charlie: (sarcastically) Oh, gee, you're not having a good time? 'Cause I'm farting rainbows over here!
Jake: First my dad forgets about me, and then he sticks me with you!
Charlie: All right, listen. Your dad works like a dog to make sure you have everything you need, and if he's not there for you sometimes, it's because he's trying to stay out of federal prison.
Charlie: I'm sorry, I forgot. Why are you here in the middle of the week?
Jake: My mom had to take a vacation.
Charlie: From what?
