  • Quotes

    • Alan: (to Berta) I just don't understand what kind of spiteful god could allow my drunken whoremonger of a brother to become a children's singing star while I toil away in poverty-stricken anonymity.

    • Charlie: Hey, Alan, guess what?
      Alan: There is no God?

    • Alan: (surprised look) They love him! How can they love him?
      Artie: Who cares, we're gonna make a fortune.
      Alan: Doesn't it bother you that he's loaded?
      Artie: (shrugs) He's a musician. It'd bother me if he wasn't.

    • Charlie: What do you think?
      Alan: I'm going back to bed.
      Charlie: What about you?
      Jake: You couldn't have TiVo'd this?
      Charlie: Hey, Charlie Waffles may love kids, but he's getting pretty sick of you.

    • (Charlie Waffles music plays)
      Berta: Pretty catchy, huh?
      Alan: So's gonorrhea.
      Berta: Drinking from the well of bitterness are we?

    • Charlie: It's show business, Alan. You don't tell people the truth.

    • Artie: This guy is a phenomenon. The label has already moved a 100,000 units in two weeks. The Wiggles can kiss my pasty white tushie.
      Alan: I'm sorry, who are you?
      Artie: Oh, I'm Artie Pliskin, president and CEO of Fluffy Bunny Records. And you are?
      Alan: Alan, Charlie's brother.
      Artie: Oh, you're the sponge!

    • Charlie: You ever wonder why I never played in a band?
      Alan: I just figured you were already getting laid so much, being in a rock band would seem redundant.
