    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Will: Mom, what is it you want?
        Marilyn: Well, I want Tina to keep seeing George. So he can sneak around with me behind her back.
        Will: You're quite the role model. Tina?
        Tina: Well, I want Marilyn out of the picture, so I can have George all to myself. I mean, this is the first time I've ever dated a man that I didn't have to call, let it ring once, and call back.

      • Tina: Hi, Marilyn. We finally meet. Though I've seen pictures of you when I removed them from your ex-husband's wallet.
        Marilyn: Well, I must say, you're almost exactly as I imagined you. You're like page four in the Midlife Crisis catalog.

      • Elliot: You know, maybe I should try out for track. Might as well. Once word gets out I tried out for cheerleading, I'll be running a lot anyway.

      • Karen: So, Elliot, queer leading tryouts, huh?
        Elliot: Cheerleading.
        Karen: Yeah. Well, we'll see what the kids are calling you when they're stuffing you in your locker on Monday.

      • Karen: (to Jack about Elliot) Wow, cheerleading, huh? Really following in his daddy's footsteps. I remember when Stan's son first started getting fat. Stan was so proud. I only wish he'd lived to see him reach 300 pounds.

      • (Will Enters in his "shorty" robe, then Marilyn Enters)
        Marilyn: Will, we have to talk.
        Will: Mom, what if I'd come out here wearing nothing?
        Marilyn: You mean it's possible to wear less than you're wearing right now.

      • Karen: Um, Elliott, yeah...I've got some bad news. Jack and I were figure-skating and he plunged through the ice, haven't heard from him since. Can I take a message? Ok, you're trying out for the cheerleading squad?
        Jack: (Jumping in) Brr, I'm back!
