Memorable Quotes

Tucker: (Humming and cooking)
Ben: Oh my god, we are so late. I was so tired last night, I think I accidentally set the baby and changed the alarm. Things at the bar are insane. I have to be there in 20 minutes. The event manager quit and... Wait. Tucker.
Tucker: Hmm?
Ben: Are you making an omelet?
Tucker: Yes, I am.
Ben: One or two?
Tucker: Two.
Ben: Tucker, do we have company?
Tucker: We most certainly do.
Ben: Dude, that's awesome. Congratulations.
Tucker: Thanks, man. It just kinda happened.
Ben: Wow. You have not had a sleepover since you dumped that crazy-ass shrew Vanessa.
Tucker: Ben, don't talk about her like that, okay? She was not that bad.
Ben: Really? Man-Eater? Joy crusher? Monster of Manhattan? Wicked witch of the West side? Seriously, Tucker, we ran out of nicknames for her... She's here, isn't she?
Tucker: Yes. Yes she is. (Chuckles)
Vanessa: Good morning.
Tucker: Hey, babe. How'd you sleep?
Vanessa: I'll let you know after I get some sleep.
Tucker: Mmm! Oh. Um, you guys remember Vanessa, don't you?
Ben: (Emma babbles) We sure do.

Ben: What is she doing here?
Tucker: Ben, Vanessa has changed.
Ben: Tucker, may I remind you she stole both your mo and your jo. How did this even happen?
Tucker: Well, it's complicated. I missed her. She missed me... Okay, it's really not that complicated. Look, look, please, I am begging you, Ben. Just try to get along with her.
Ben: Fine, but remember if you ever wake up with two puncture wounds in your neck, we keep the wooden stakes in the junk drawer.

Riley: Hey, Wheeler, I'm looking for Gerard.
Danny: Now? Are you sure? 'Cause I've been thinking a lot about this and I don't think he's good enough for you.
Riley: Who cares? I just wanna show him what he's losing out on. He is going to regret ignoring me. (Gerard comes in) Oh. Hey, you. Remember me?
Bonnie: Hey, Danny. Oh, sorry, Riley, I didn't bring any singles. Gerard, phone broken?
Gerard: Sorry, Bonnie, I didn't call you back. I'm just a little freaked out about dating somebody's mom.
Riley: I'm sorry. You two are dating?
Bonnie: Well, I thought we were. Danny set us up.
Danny: No, he didn't.
Riley: Danny set us up.
Gerard: No, he didn't.
Bonnie: Okay, wait. All right, so you really don't want to date me now that you know I'm a mom?
Gerard: No, I didn't say that. I just need to wrap my head around it.
Bonnie: Yeah, well, wrap your head around this Buh-Bye. You know what, Riley? He's all yours.
Riley: I don't want him. Why wouldn't you want to date her? She's beautiful and hilarious.
Gerard: I didn't say that.
Bonnie: Yeah, and why wouldn't you want to go with her? She is gorgeous and half-naked.
Gerard: I didn't know it was an option.
Riley: It's not.
Bonnie: You know what? I don't even know why I'm standing here.
Riley: Neither do I. Lunch?
Bonnie: Sounds good.
Riley: Great.
Bonnie: So can we go straight to lunch or do you need to call your pimp and check in?
