Episode Quotes
Monroe: I have a bikram class at 6 a.m. and hot yoga on too-little sleep is how groin-pulls happen.

Monroe: Klaustreich, total jerks. Women love them, but it never ends well. Isn't that always the way?
Nick: I don't know.

Monroe: Molly, my girlfriend from high school, left me for a klaustreich, so I might be a wee bit riled up about them. He told her he loved her. He got her pregnant. She ended up delivering his litter at prom. Her parents were not thrilled.

Rosalee Calvert: Look, I really appreciate you helping me out with all this.
Monroe: Well, you'll never know when I might need a discount on... tincture of prickle poppy?
Rosalee Calvert: Yeah, that's for, um, romantic stamina.
Monroe: Oh. Well... no wonder I didn't know what it was.

Monroe: Hey, Nick, I thought a vacation for you kind of meant, you know, vacation for me, too.
Nick: Look, I'm sorry. You know, this wasn't part of my weekend plans. Hey, how was hot yoga? You pull a groin or anything?
Monroe: My groin is fine, thank you.

Juliette: I can't believe you remember what we had on our first date.
Nick: How can I forget that? That's the most expensive date I ever had in my life.
Juliette: Not if you add in what happened after that.
Nick: Ooh. Yeah, or after that.

Timothy Steinkellner: Are you insane?
Nick: Well, I'm in the woods, I just cut a golden egg out of a girl's neck, you tell me.
