Episode Quotes
Karen: This is Mia, Bill's daughter, and this is Hank. You two know each other?
Hank: No.
Mia: Well, I do recognize you.
Hank: No.
Mia: Yeah, sure I do.
Hank: No.
Mia: From your book. Your picture is on the back.

Mia: What happened to your eye?
Karen: Yeah what did happen to your eye, Hank?
Hank: Well, you should see the other guy.
Mia: I hope she doesn't press charges.
Hank: It was not a "she", it was a "he", the other guy.
Mia: Right, or whatever I'm off to bed, good night. It was nice to meet you, Hank.
Hank: Nice to meet you, too.

Hank: Now you're giving me that look, right now, look like I finger-banged your cat.

Becca: So, who won that round?
Hank: Oh, it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.
Becca: Looks like a fun game.
Hank: You think I made her laugh?
Becca: Sure. A little. On the inside.

Karen: You smell like pussy.
Hank: Thank you.



Episode Goofs
After Karen and Hank bring Becca home from the party, the two sit down for a glass of wine. In the scene, Karen is shown pouring wine in her glass twice.



Cultural References
Hank's book had a movie adaptation to it called 'A Crazy Little Thing Called Love'. Staring actors Tom and Katie, whom we are led to believe are Hollywood couple, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Becca makes a cultural refrence to the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" when she mentions she wants to see a pirate movie, and that Johnny Depp is hot.
