Episode Quotes
Alan: Look. Ok, this is just until things are settle out. A couple of days max. She'll come to her senses.
Charlie: Yeah, that's what women do.

Charlie: Well, yeah, but not a woman who doesn't like sex.
Alan: And, Jake, this could just destroy Jake.
Charlie: Jake?
Alan: My son.
Charlie: Oh, yea, teenagers are pretty sophisticated these days.
Alan: He's 10.

Charlie: What are you smiling about?
Jake: You don't have any food.
Charlie: Yeah, but I'm not the one who's hungry. Who's smiling now, shorty?

Jake: Your mom is my grandma.
Charlie: Yup.
Jake: Grandma says you're a bitter disappointment.
