Episode Quotes
Gina: So, whoever you pick is the real winner?
Joey: Yes!
Gina: And I can rub it in Alex's face?
Alex: Yeah, but you won't get to 'cos it ain't gonna go down like that, biatch!

Lauren: I’m having a hard time believing you broke up with her.
Joey: Oh, are you talking about when we were just together on the side of the cabin, when I was helping her get that splinter out of her tongue?

Katie: I didn’t like watching you be all flirty with Lauren.
Joey: Come on, you know I only have eyes for my daughter.

Gina: OK! Lasagna! Looks good.
Joey: Oooh... I cannot wait! Ha, Michael?
Michael: (doesn't care much about it) Yeah... I still do not get excited about food, you know? If I could take a pill each day instead of eating I'd be happy.
Joey: If they would make that I would get your food.
Michael: OK, then I'd take your pill.
Joey: (he's mad) You just try to take it.

Alex: Gina! This is incredible! You gotta teach me how to make this?
(Alex starts eating like an animal and everyone is looking at her)
Gina: Dear God! Look at her
Michael: I know! It's disgusting!
Joey: I love you!

Gina: I'm gonna go home and get started.
Alex: Good! I'll go to the store to get my secret ingredient!
Gina: Oh, that's OK! 'Cuz if my grandma didn't need it, and my mother didn't need it, I don't need it.
Joey: You said the same thing about the therapy. I'm not sure you're right.

Bobbie: So what's the problem?
Joey: Katie still won't come out of her dressing room.
Bobbie: Well, don't you worry... I know how to deal with crazy actors. You just smile and tell them what they want to hear.
Joey: OK! You think that you can help me?
Bobbie: (smiles at Joey) Absolutely!!

Bobbie: Great news!
Joey: (interrupts Bobbie) She's coming out?
Bobbie: No! I signed her as a client!
Lauren: You did what?
Bobbie: That's right! My client Katie demands that you fire Joey. If you fire my client Joey, I'll destroy you!
Lauren: Isn't this a conflict of interest?
Bobbie: (makes a funny face) Oh no! They'll send me to agent jail!

(Gina locked herself in the bathroom)
Michael: So you gotta get her out of there! I can't do it!
Joey: Oh, I've already talked one woman out of a locked room today. She can stay in there as far as I'm concerned.
Michael: She's flushing the lasagna down the toilet!
Joey: Gina, honey!
