  • Quotes

    • Berta: Is your brother still in bed with his sister?
      Alan: Step-sister... to be... and yes.

    • Charlie: So, where do they put the engine in these things?
      Courtney: Where it belongs... in the rear.

    • Teddy: Thanks for coming, fellas. Means a lot to me.
      Alan: Wouldn't miss it. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Right, Charlie?
      Charlie: Well, yeah, but he seems hell-bent on marrying mom.

    • Charlie: I thought you told me to stay away from her?
      Teddy: I was just trying to protect you.

    • Charlie: Okay, Mom, I guess I'll see you at the wedding.
      Evelyn: Charlie, the wedding is not for six months.
      Charlie: Yeah, but it's bad luck to see the bride beforehand.

    • Alan: (with the phone in his hand) It's Teddy's daughter, she wants to talk to you.
      Charlie: Really?
      Alan: But you promised Teddy you'd stay away from her.
      Charlie: Hey, I didn't tell her to call me.
      Alan: What kind of man would hit on his future step-sister?
      Berta: You're just making it hotter for him.

    • Charlie: What's this?
      Courtney: Oh, that's the extended warranty. Just a little extra protection.
      Charlie: It's a bit late for that.

    • Berta: Here we go, Blue Eyes. I made it myself.
      Teddy: Thank you.
      Evelyn: Nothing for me, thanks.
      Berta: I don't recall offering.

    • Charlie: You want to sell me a car now?
      Courtney: Or, I could go downstairs.
      Charlie: You wouldn't?
      Courtney: I would.
      Charlie: Wait a minute. You planned this. You knew they were coming over today.
      Courtney: Well, a good salesman pays attention!

    • Teddy: Come on, Evelyn, give the kid a break. He was probably out last night sowing some wild oats.
      Evelyn: He's 40 years old! He has no more wild oats. Just warmed over Cream of Wheat.

    • Evelyn: (talking about Charlie) I just can't believe he's still in bed.
      Alan: He's a drunk, Mom, that's what they do!

    • Alan: (To Charlie) But it always seems to work out that every time you get laid, I get screwed!

    • Courtney: What do you have to lose?
      Charlie: Well, there's my integrity, my self-respect, my relationship with your father.. give me the damn keys!

    • Alan: How come you have no problem looking me in the eye after sleeping with my wife's sister, my son's teacher, my divorce lawyer and my old receptionist?
      Charlie: I like Teddy.

    • Courtney: Right now it's all wet, soapy, just waiting for you.
      Charlie: Are we still talking about a car?
      Courtney: What do you think?
      Charlie: I think I should probably get out before I set off the airbag.

    • Berta: Did Teddy tell you to stay away from his daughter, too?
      Alan: No.
      Berta: Yeah, why would he?

    • Charlie: (To Courtney) I guess I could come by and take a peek at it.
      Berta: First a peek, then a poke.

    • (Alan is on the phone with Courtney)
      Alan: Oh, I'm sorry. I had no idea that you were planning on using a fake migraine to get out early. So what did you do? Ooh, menstrual cramps. Yeah, I can't get away with that. Although sometimes I'll use irritable bowl syndrome.

    • Evelyn: (To Teddy) I'm telling you right now, I'm not having any more children.

    • Charlie: We'd love to stay, but Alan's got a headache.
      Jake: (To Charlie) Not yet!
      Alan: Not yet.. debilitating, but I do need to lay down.

    • Courtney: Well, Evelyn, you know what the say about assuming. When you assume, you're just a bitch.

    • Teddy: Charlie, I need you to do me a favor.
      Charlie: Anything for you, Teddy. Name it.
      Teddy: Stay away from Courtney.
      Charlie: Name something else.

    • Charlie: (Referring to Courtney) So Teddy, what's the deal? All this time you've been hiding this beautiful woman from us.
      Teddy: Only from you, Charlie.

    • Alan: I spent 12 years of my life watching my wife fake migraines and orgasms.
      Charlie: I'd go with the migraine.

    • Alan: (To Charlie and Jake) Stop it, the both of you! There will be no puking. We are going to stay, congratulate the happy couple, mingle a little bit, and then I am going to fake a migraine.

    • (Jake and Charlie are thinking of an excuse to leave Evelyn's house)
      Jake: Well, if I eat enough shrimp, I can make myself puke.
      Charlie: Start Eating.

    • (Teddy is finishing his toast to Evelyn)
      Teddy: To Evelyn.
      Charlie: That poor, clueless bastard.
      Alan: It's like a dog sticking his face in a fan.
      Jake: You don't do that more than once.
