  • George: (to Vic) It's time you stopped treating me like I'm still the 19 year old kid who siphoned gas out of your car.

  • George: But Angie, it's a whole week of (imitates Vic) "George, it's not to late to go to college", "George, Angie's old boyfriend is a millionaire", "George, say hello to my little friend!"
  • Angie: My dad is not Scarface!

  • (George and Angie are scolding Vic while he's trying to prepare Christmas dinner)
  • Angie: Dad, say something nice, or get your bags and go.
  • Vic: (to George) ... I thought you were going to screw up, but you didn't. Congratulations, NOW HELP ME WITH THE PIG!
  • George: (sarcastically) Thank you, God bless us, everyone.
  • Vic: You think it's so easy?! Angie's my little girl, and she'll always be my little girl, and you'll always be the guy who took her away from me. So when Carmen shows up with some long haired loser in a Black Sabbath t-shirt, I hope for your sake, he turns out as good as you did.

  • Max: Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-That's all folks.
