Episode Quotes
Shirley: Troy, what's wrong?
Troy: I just saw a dead body.
Shirley: I told you not to use the east stairwell. My pastor says it's meth season.

Shirley: Everybody has some sort of service for the departed, Eskimos, witch doctors, jewish people...
Annie: Oh cool, we made the list!

Jeff: I don't see much difference between Pierce's religion and anybody else's.
Annie: Well then you're not listening, because his has lasers!

Britta: C'mon Annie, you know guys are giving you money because of the whole sexy schoolgirl routine.
Annie: I have a routine?
Britta: Yeah. You know the one where you use postures as an excuse to stick out your chest, and you laugh at guys unfunny jokes, pretending not to know that they have a sock at home with your name on it.
