  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jimmy: Look, I've achieved all my goals, and, and now it's just a downward spiral until I'm old and, and decrepit and... somebody has to lift me on and off the toilet. I mean, can you imagine a worse future?
      Christine: Yes, considering I'm going to be the one doing the lifting.

    • Jimmy: You ready to go, old man?
      Gordie Howe: Go where?
      Jimmy: Come on. You heard me. I'm gonna show you how, Mr. Howe!

    • Christine: I thought you said you could get Heidi Klum.
      Billy: Well, I could, but I thought this was funny.

    • Jimmy: Well, Billy, that was pretty informative.
      (Kim does a rimshot)
      Jimmy Kim, you're supposed to wait until I say something funny to do a rimshot.
      Kim: Yeah, I got tired of waiting. (does another rimshot)

    • Christine: I was thinking at school, they have a TV studio, and I bet they'd let us use it, and you could host your own talk show on campus.
      Jimmy: On campus? Would anybody see it?
      Christine: Well, I don't know. Maybe 30 or 40 people in the dorms and whoever's eating lunch in the cafeteria.
      Jimmy: That many?!

    • Jimmy: This is my little box of stuff. You know, things I've been collecting over the years, you know. I got my diploma, I got, uh, some baseball cards here. Oh, look at this—this is the first dollar I made.
      Greg: How? Mowing lawns?
      Jimmy: No, I made it. That's when color copiers came out.

    • Kim: Hey, there you are. Guess you're a little shaken up, huh?
      Jimmy: A little? I'd be dead if I hadn't dropped that bag of Skittles. You know, I never thought my sweet tooth would be the thing that saved my life.
      Christine: Hey, candy hasn't been wrapping plaque around your heart for the last 20 years to let a piano swoop in and finish the job.

  • NOTES (7)

    • The "Things I Think About at Work" music video in the tag contains an amusing chyron noting that the song is on "Amigos de Garcia Records" and the director is Jeff Meyer.

    • The lyrics to the "Things I Think About at Work" song:
      "Another morning in my security box
      Every stage has free bagels and lox
      I just noticed I'm wearing two different-colored socks
      Man, this Vanilla Coke® really rocks
      My second-favorite actor has gotta be Captain Kirk
      These are things I think about at work
      I wonder if Abe Vigoda's still alive
      I wonder if there's any doughnuts left on Stage 5
      The movie Memento had a very confusing story
      Will Joe Gibbs bring the Redskins back to glory?
      I never met Pierce Brosnan; got the feelin' he's kind of a jerk
      These are things I think about at work
      I think Mr. T can take Russell Crowe in a fight (Don't you?)
      I'd like to be Mr. Britney Spears for just one night
      I've always thought that guinea pigs were odd (They don't even look like pigs)
      The man who invented NutRageous® is a god
      If I were Hercules, all my best friends could just call me Herc
      These are things I think about at work
      I used to have a next-door neighbor, and he'd yell at me when I'd cut through his yard
      Either goin' to school or comin' home, and once he threw a rock at my dog
      And then he'd call the cops when I'd play my music no matter how loud or quiet it was
      And he had a weird limp from the second World War
      And he smoked like a chimney, swore like a sailor, and he drank beer all day, and he hated my guts, and his name was Frank McGuirk
      These are things I think about at work
      Yeah, these are things I think about at work
      Oh, these are things I think about at work
      Ah-ahhhhhhhhh!"
