Episode Quotes
Sam: I thought I told you to stay away from Chuey.
Ruben: Does he tell you when to wipe your butt too?

Chuey: You bet on us?
Ruben: Hey, would I bet against my old high school?
Chuey: You would if the odds were right.
Ruben: I think I like this kid of yours, Celia.

Al: That's the story with our country. Mothers and fathers go through all kinds of hardships just to see that their kids get a better break than they had.

Al: Sam, that pass was like a ten dollar hooker. It wasn't pretty but it got the job done.

Sam: Where have you been?
Al: I've been watching SuperBowl XXX...and the Steelers are down by three...
