When playing Scrabble, Alan starts with eight tiles before making his 'bingo' of resizing by placing seven tiles around an existing 's' on the board; players only have seven tiles at any one time. Additionally, placing resizing in such a way that it straddles two triple-word-scores (along with the 'z' on a double letter score) would also actually score 302 points, not the 120 he claims.
Chelsea: How did you sleep?
Charlie: Good, when you finally let me.
Chelsea: Hush, Alan's making pancakes. Can I pour you some coffee?
Charlie: I would love that. (to Alan) Good morning, Mrs. Butterworth!
Alan: Sleep well?
Chelsea: Yeah, I mean, when you're brother finally let me go to sleep. Can I tell you a little secret?
Chelsea: He's the best lover I've ever had.
Alan: Oh, isn't that nice.
Charlie: You know how they say you can be alone but not lonely?
Charlie: Well, Alan's kind of the opposite. He is always lonely, but he's never alone.
(at an artsy movie)
Charlie: I'm going to hit the head; let me know if any kind of a plot ever kicks in.
Chelsea: He's not coming back, is he?
Alan: They sell beer in the lobby?
Charlie: What are you doing here? I thought you were spending the weekend with your mom and Herb.
Jake: Yeah, I was supposed to, but mom's got all those pregnancy hormones going.
Charlie: What did you do?
Jake: One little fat joke.
Charlie: Took it badly, eh?
Jake: Well, here I am.
(Berta's lounging on the deck)
Berta: What up, homes?
Charlie: What are you doing?
Berta: Enjoying the sunset; waiting on dinner.
Charlie: You're staying for dinner?
Berta: I wasn't gonna, but your lovely fiancée and her new gal pal insisted.
Charlie: You know, Berta, I thought when Alan moved in here I was being punished.
Berta: You and me both.
