Quotes[edit | edit source]

Lyla (while saying grace at dinner with her family): Thank you Lord for this food that we are about to receive and for your wisdom Lord. I pray that you will guide me and everyone at this table to help respect You and make good choices. For example, to not take advantage of the vulnerability of a recently separated, but not yet divorced woman. And in turn to give others at the table the strength to remember that a mother of three should not be wearing skinny jeans. Amen. (They all release hands) Bon appetit!
Landry: Why don't you go punch him in the face?
Matt: Oh, is that what you would do?
Landry: In some situations you need to ask yourself, W.W.R.D.? "What Would Riggins Do?" In this situation?
Matt: Riggins would not be in this situation 'cause Riggins is captain of the S.S. Ta-Tas over there.
