Michael: Well, you certainly haven't been shopping, all I found in the refrigerator was a dead dove in a bag...
G.O.B.: You didn't eat that did you? 'Cause I only got a couple of days left to return it.
George, Sr.: ...this is my vacation, Michael.
Michael: You're doing time, Dad.
George, Sr.: I'm doing the time of my life.
Lucille: Luz, that coat cost more than your house. (Lucille looks at Michael) That's how we joke. She doesn't even have a house.
Lindsay: Did you enjoy your meal, Mom? You drank it fast enough.
Lucille: Not as much as you enjoyed yours. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair.
Lucille: You might want to let that fire go out before you stick your face in it.
Lindsay: Ah, that's funny. Because I was going to say, you might want to lean away from that fire since you're soaked in alcohol.
Lucille: Mine was better.

Tobias: Fire! Fire! Fire! (sings) ... Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...
Michael: So, Mom, I'm trying to find...
Lucille: I don't know where they are.
Michael: ...these flight records. You know, it's really more believable if you let me finish.
George Michael: Uh, I-I don’t know about this. You know, it can get pretty hairy in there.
Lindsay: Fine. Do what you want. If I know my daughter, that stand won’t be there in a week.
Michael: You stay on top of her, buddy. Do not be afraid to ride her. Hard.
Tobias: Okay, we are just about ass-to-ankles back here, Maeby. Do you want to hop on your cousin’s lap there, please?
Michael: Whoa, bumpy road ahead.
Michael: Well, I’ll tell you what. I’m going to give you a promotion. Welcome aboard, Mr. Manager.
George Michael: Wow. I’m Mr. Manager.
Michael: Well, manager; we just say manager.
