Right before he plays footsie-hands, Reggie's mouth doesn't match his dialogue.



Larry: Promise me he'll get the best care, not that Obamacare that Fox News says kills old people and lets illegal Mexicans get gay married.

Jackie: I thought I would address some of your online comments.  So for RikersInmate6432, I do not play a lot of musical instruments so I do not know what a skin flute is, but starting a band with you sounds like fun!

Marty: Could we just stop game night and watch some good old network TV, please?
Larry: On a Friday night? Huh!  No, gracias!

Larry: Marty Weaver is a nearly extinct dinosaur trapped in a tar pit... and the tar is made of melted spray-cheese.

Marty: Oh hon, you know, you have a big personality.
Debbie: Well that's just a nice way of saying self-absorbed.  It's not even that nice of a way.

Reggie: Did your mother macrame her head?

Larry: It's been over an hour!  For an Emergency Room, you don't act like it's an emergency!

TV Commercial: As a busy mom, I can't let my adult diaper slow me down.
Amber: Mute. I can't watch that commercial any more! Who's that happy about being 40 and wearing a diaper?
