George Michael: OCD? No, I’m just cleaning up after Aunt Lindsay. She never turns things off.
Michael: Well... Guess that explains why I saw the hedge trimmer zipping around the drive way. I did it again, didn’t I? I’m so self-centered. From now on, I want you to just tell me what’s on your mind, okay? And I promise I won’t just hear what I want to hear.

G.O.B.: What kind of sauce is that?
Lindsay: Wait, this is the water I thawed the chicken in.
Buster: Oh. Well, that should go with chicken.
G.O.B.: Coming through. Chicken in chicken sauce.
