Episode Quotes
Dana: (reading Karen's poem) The mall is where I spend my day, from pretzel stand to lingerie. The shoes and purses the choice is hard, oh heck put them all on my credit card. Oh yeah this is moving alright, like bran.
Karen: Well let's see what you wrote. (reading Dana's poem) Darkness, anguish, my sorrow is a moat that has no bridge. Abandoned on an island of cold pain, the agony of life. Dana this poem is like watching your puppy get run over. At least my poem was fun.

Carol: AH Frank we gotta stop making so many phone calls.
Frank: OH Geez look at this. OK, who made a 28 dollar phone call to New Zealand?
Carol: New Zealand?
Frank: That was me. I was trying to get ahold of that big babe who plays Xena Warrior Princess.

Mark: Hey, sugar mama, you look sassed.
Amanda: Double back at ya, home slice.
Frank: What the hell are they sayin?

Carol: Oh I don't like her. She is much to wild for Mark.
Al: The cafeteria lady is to wild for Mark.
