  • Quotes

    • Alan: Charlie, I'm not gonna lie to some poor woman, just so you can dump her.
      Charlie: I'm not dumping her. We've just grown apart.
      Alan: Since you've picked her up at a bar last night?
      Charlie: People change...

    • Alan: Well, I'd love to help you out, Mom, but, uh, I have a date tonight.
      Evelyn: So, now it's Inflatable Sex Doll Night at Dodger Stadium?
      Alan: No, no, I really have a date. And the doll was a gag gift from one of my patients.
      Evelyn: Charlie, what about you?
      Charlie: I tried it once, but I prefer a real woman.

    • Evelyn: They say that he killed a famous writer just to prove a point.
      Charlie: Ooohh. And what was the point?
      Evelyn: ...I can kill a writer.

    • Evelyn: Teddy is out of town and I need an escort for the Civic Light Opera benefit this evening.
      Charlie: Why don't you just try one of those escort services?
      Evelyn: Charlie, if I were going to pay $200 per hour for a man, I would not be taking him to the opera.
      Charlie: That's fair.

    • Evelyn: That is the king of vaginal rejuvenation surgery. But interestingly, he's never used one himself, rejuvenated or otherwise.
      Charlie: Wouldn't that make him the queen of vaginal surgery?

    • Alan: You know what they say about nice guys?
      Sharon: Yes, they finish last.
      Alan: No, they finish in the shower.

    • Evelyn: Margaret, good to see you! How's married life?
      Margaret: Oh, just one long honeymoon.
      Evelyn: (aside, to Charlie) That's because she bangs a different groom every night.
      Charlie: (introduces himself) Hi. Charlie Harper.

    • Sharon: The image of you lying on top of me will haunt me forever.
      Alan: Did you want to be on top?

    • Berta: Morning.
      Alan: Morning. Hey, Berta, you're a woman.
      Berta: Where are we going with this, Zippy?
      Alan: I was just wondering-what does it mean when someone starts crying uncontrollably after sex?
      Berta: Well, in my experience, it usually means the conjugal visit's over.

    • Sharon: I'm sorry, Alan, I can't do this.
      Alan: Sure you can. I mean, you are... and if you'll allow me to say so, you're pretty good at it.
      Sharon: It's not you, it's me.
      Alan: Yeah, right!
      Sharon: What is that supposed to mean?
      Alan: Sharon, I have been rejected by... thirty two different women in my life, and you know what? It's never been me.
