Plot summary

George gets Benny an advance on her paychecks to look for apartments, but Benny foolishly gambles the money away and moves into her car, which burns down as well. Carmen is still in denial and is still determined to marry her boyfriend even though he is gone. Because of Benny's bad luck at gambling, George lets her live in his house.



George: (to Benny) You know, this is the second time in two days I thought you were dead. I'm starting to be okay with the idea.

Ernie: Poor Benny. I can't imagine losing everything I own and start all over.
George: Yeah, it'd be tough to lose all those Speed Racer sheets and the Rubik's Cube finished on one side.

Carmen: When Jason said he'd love me forever, he meant forever.
Max: When he said that, was your shirt on or off?
Angie: Upstairs!
Max: It matters.

Benny (to George): I brought you into this world and I didn't have to.
George: I know. I remember you speaking into my crib saying, "Goodnight, my little drunken mistake."
Benny: You remember that from when you were a baby?
George: No! You didn't get me a real bed until I was seven! I was so cramped up, I woke up with a stiff leg, saying "Wait for me!" (walks with one leg straight)

Benny (talking to a snail on the ground): Hey there, Mr. Snail. At least you got your house on your back. Any room in there for me?
