  • Quotes

    • Judith: Don't you think you've had enough to drink at the magic show, Evelyn?
      Evelyn: Excuse me, darling, but some of us deal with our boredom and depression the old-fashioned, non-prescription way.

    • Alan: Anyway, you, me, and Mom are taking Jake to a show, Magic Hat's Club.
      Charlie: You invited Mom?
      Alan: You want to tell her she can't come to her only grandchild's birthday? 'Cause believe me, I tried.
      Charlie: Oh, man.
      Alan: Look at the bright side, maybe we can bribe one of the magicians to get her sawed in half.

    • Judith: Oh, come on, Charlie. You know there was always sexual tension between us.
      Charlie: Really? I thought it was just regular tension.
      Judith: I saw you looking at my chest.
      Alan: You looked at my ex-wife's chest??
      Charlie: Hey, I'm a guy.

    • Charlie: Go to your room.
      Jake: But it's my birthday!
      Charlie: Ironic, isn't it?

    • Judith: If you're determined to do something stupid, I'd actually prefer you to do Charlie.
      Liz: So would Charlie, but we can't always get what we want.

    • Alan: Judith's sister is hitting on me.
      Charlie: She's not hitting on you, she's hitting on her sister's ex-husband.
      Alan: But that's me!

    • Charlie: How can you not remember the coatroom?
      Liz: I remember the coatroom, I just don't remember you.

    • Judith: It's an eleven-year-old's birthday party. You could've at least put on a bra.
      Liz: Some of us don't need bras.
      Judith: Some of us have had husbands and children.
      Liz: Oh, I've had husbands.

    • Alan: Charlie, please don't make a bad situation worse. Judith and Liz have been at each other's throats for years.
      Charlie: Why's that?
      Alan: I don't know. Maybe it is because Liz was always more popular, maybe because Judith was smarter, maybe, and this is just a theory on my part, it had something to do with the fact that Liz did my brother in the coatroom at our wedding reception.
      Charlie: Well, it is no secret why she was popular.
      Alan: At our wedding reception, Charlie. In the coatroom. You where louder then the band!
      Charlie: You make it sound so sleazy.
      Alan: I'm sorry. Class it up for me.
      Charlie: Okay, to begin with, we were on a mink coat...
      Alan: Goodbye! (leaves)

    • Evelyn: Now, open grandmommy's present.
      Jake: Clothes?
      Evelyn: Happy birthday!
      Jake: Thanks a lot, but clothes?
      Evelyn: Not clothes, darling. It's Calvin Klein.
      Jake: No, it's clothes.
      Evelyn: Believe me sweetheart, the girls are gonna love you in this.
      Jake: What girls?
      Evelyn: Alright. The other boys will be envious.
      Jake: The other boys will beat me up.
      Evelyn: Well, there's just no pleasing you, is there?
