Episode Quotes
(The gang is going miniature golfing except Karen)
Carol: Well isn't Karen with you?
Dana: Nope, in one of the strange events of the 20th century I am going miniature golfing and Karen is at the library.
Frank: It's saturday night and Karen's at the library? I bet she's checking out something other than books.
Carol: Now Frank that isn't fair, maybe Karen is maturing and finding interests other than boys. This could be a major turning point.
(Karen comes into the room)
Karen: Mom I have a major emergency. I met these three guys at the library and I can't decide which one to go out with.
Frank: So much for major turning points.

Al: (about Sam) Yeah Dad, I mean you should have seen this girl at the batting cage. Incredible, 80 mile-per-hour pitches and this girl went 12 for 12.
Frank: (to JT) How did you do son?
JT: Well, I made solid contact.
Rich: Yeah he got hit in the head with the ball.
JT: Yeah but it was a solid hit.

(Lilly protests having to have a booster shot)
Lilly: Yeah but they stick a big needle in your butt.

Rich: How long do you think a girl is gonna stay with a guy that's not as tough as she is?
JT: I don't know let's ask Dana.
