Some funny quotes:

George Sr.: I’m so sorry, I thought you were a successful Republican strategist.

Waiter: Why, because I’m black?


Tobias: Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over— an analyst and a therapist. The world’s first analrapist.

Lindsay: Yes, and you were almost arrested for those business cards.


Michael (into the phone): Really? And all the guys like her, huh? That is – that is – that is great. Uh, you mean “away,” though, right? Because, otherwise, it sounds a little different, but, uh, that’s, uh, that’s outstanding. You forgot to say “away” again. But listen, let me call you back in a bit, ok? Bye. (to Lindsay) Nellie has blown them all away.


George Sr.: Michael, this is my brother. Do you know what it’s like to have a sibling who has no source of income except for you?

Michael: Just one? No, no idea. It sounds wonderful, though.


Lucille: Oh, please. I’ve been drinking since before you were born. So if alcohol’s the reason I’m here, I got news for you, bub. It’s the only reason you’re here, too.

Michael: Hey, look at that. You’re mean sober, too.
