Episode Quotes
Ken Keller: I loved that joke invitation by the way.
Hank: What joke invitation?
Ken Keller: The one that said four grown men were going to dinner at Tao and Spiderman on Broadway.
Hank: That's not a joke. Evan didn't want a party. Since Paige came into his life, he's outgrown certain behavior.
Ken Keller: Of course he said he didn't want a party. It's called plausible deniability.
Hank: What?
Ken Keller: As best man, your job isn't to give him what he says he wants, it's to give him what he needs. Booze and booty.

Paige: I just wish there were more guests on the Lawson side of the aisle.
Hank: Owen's still coming, right?
Paige: Who's Owen?
Hank: His mom was our mom's cousin, but they lived in Wisconsin, so we're distant in all ways.
Evan: You are marrying into a tiny but elite clan.
Hank: Yes. Minus the elite part.

Divya: Why have I never met you before?
Winnie Gordon: Um, well, things have been a little awkward. Uh, I'm the girl Hank dumped right before he got engaged.
Divya: I didn't know. I am so sorry, I...
Winnie Gordon: No, no. Don't be. I've moved on, and I guess Hank has too, or else my baking for the wedding would be weird for him.
Evan: It may still be weird for him.
Winnie Gordon: You didn't tell him?

Divya: It's not that you have a son... It's that you kept it from me.
Rafa: I was afraid that would scare you off. Our relationship was so new. (Sighs) I am sorry I hurt you. But if you will give me a chance, I can prove that my feelings are true.

Evan: So that endovascular thing, it's pretty pricey, right?
Hank: You do our billing. You know about medical expenses.
Evan: Yeah, I just wonder if Owen has insurance, that's all.

Evan: Hey! You made it!
Eddie R. Lawson: It's my son's wedding. This is all about family. Of course I made it.
Hank: Where's grandpa?
Eddie R. Lawson: He didn't make it.
