  • Quotes

    • Sanjay: (to Nancy) I am a highly intelligent underachiever.

    • Nancy: Thanks for lending a hand.
      Andy: Sister, I've lent you a hand, a neck, some other parts I don't feel comfortable talking about. (Shows Nancy a bite mark from Eileen)
      Nancy: What's that?
      Andy: Uh, let me put it this way: If Eileen ever dies in a plane crash, I have her dental records.

    • Nancy: You made your bed, now fuck in it!

    • Shane: Mom said we could play, as long as we did out homework first.
      Andy: What homework?
      Shane: Science.
      Andy: Science? They're still teaching science? I can help you with that. What've we got, what've we got. (Flips through the book) Yeah, this is new science. Ok, we're gonna forget this. I suck at science. But I'm good at life, so I'll tell you what we're gonna do. We're gonna go online, we're gonna order the teacher's edition of your book.
      Shane: We can do that?
      Andy: Of course.

    • Doug: You should take ceramics. Get your fingers in some clay. It's very sensual. It's very Demi Moore.
      Nancy: I'm certainly not taking your seminar.
      Doug: Smart move. All you're gonna get in there is an earful of my bullshit. But with ceramics, you know, you can make a bowl.

    • Doug: I'm here to expand my client base. I stand at the back of the class and I say "as an accountant shouldn't you blah blah blah blah blah?". Confuses the hell out of everyone. Finally all the students, they just give up and that's when I give them my business card. Minimum fourteen clients guaranteed. How genius is that?
