Episode Quotes
Anthony: You time in in the lobby?
Karen: Right.
Anthony: That's unacceptable. We're doing behind-the-scenes work in front of the guests. All right, it's not your fault. I'm gonna let you go back to work while I have a panic attack about this.

Anthony: A hotel, especially when you're on vacation, is like a Christmas present. So we took off the bow outside, "Ooh, we took off the bow."
Casey: We took off the bow.
Anthony: And then we opened up the box.
Casey: And it's a turd. Merry Christmas!
Anthony: Merry Christmas!

Anthony: Do not walk away from me again, because if you walk away from me, I'm going to walk after you.
Jennifer: It makes me want to run you over with my car. I don't think I have coverage for that, do I?

Anthony: I just jumped into the pool with a woman that would have drowned me three days ago.
