Episode Quotes
Debbie: All right, so all I need to do is shove the chicken in the duck, the duck in the turkey, and voila... Thanksgiving turducken.
Marty: That's an alarming amount of animals to stick inside each other. Can you put it all in a pig?

Dominick: Now, kids, I want you to take me upstairs, and show Grandpa whose bedroom he's taking.
Max: Say what now?
Abby: What did you say?
Dominick: Let's go.
Max: You'd hate my bedroom!
Abby: I still pee the bed!
Max: No, you don't!
Abby: I'm going to as soon as I get up there.

Marty: You know, ma, I got to say, you haven't looked this good in years.
Theresa: Well, I should hope so. I've lost a lot of weight. 210 pounds of soul-sucking fat, to be exact.
Dominick: Hardy har!

Marty: This is real, Deb. My parents are splitting up for real. If they don't get back together, that makes me the child of a broken home. I don't want to be an orphan.

Max: How would you like a chance to have your very own old person living right in your room?
Abby: Doesn't that sound amazing?
Dick: My very own old person? What a dream! Guys, my I.Q. is more than 50 times greater than yours. Did you really think you could manipulate me like that?

Dominick: Where are you guys from again?
Larry: France.
Jackie: Canada.
