Episode Quotes
Craig: No, I can't get my tie the right length tonight. If it goes too long it covers up the area that everybody's watching for. And then if it's to short I look like a guy in a silent movie.

Craig: (talking about his son Milo) You know what he said to me the other day? Your grown up jokes are not funny to me. I said they're not funny to grown-ups either.

Craig: I'm driving to work today, the whole cities wearing next to nothing. Seeing all the sexy glistening bodies, the asses hanging out of thongs...the women aren't bad either.

Craig: Not many people know this but the word Barbeque is a Norwegian word, it means I love you. Now that's not true, but if it were true wouldn't that be awesome?

Craig: (talking about how he likes the old smoked wood flavor of BBQ) You know there's a place on Hollywood Boulevard where they'll smoke your wood for twenty bucks? Tell them I sent you they'll put grill marks on your weiner.

Craig: They like the hot sauces in Texas, Risky's has got the hot death sauce, Satan's messenger and burns when I pee.
