“It’s only inappropriate when it’s ugly people.”

4. The real definition of a nooner:
“And now I am heading home for a nooner – which is what I like to call having pancakes for lunch.”

5. A kind reminder that you’re not the only one out there who doesn’t have it all together:
[To Tracy] “I’m actually jealous of you. You’ve got stability, a great marriage, devoted kids. You know what I have? A Sims family that keeps getting murdered.”

“That word bums me out unless it’s between the words meat and pizza.”

“I’m gonna go talk to some food about this.”

13. Gentle reassurance that we’ve all done some bad things:
“One time I laughed at a blind guy eating spaghetti! Sometimes I pee in the shower if I’m really tired! I saw my grandparents making love once and I didn’t leave right away!”

14. What a guy really means when he says ‘lets’s think about it’:
“In my experience, ‘let’s think about it’ usually ends up as me watching Solid Gold in my basement on prom night.”

“He could be a serial killer! He could wear a thumb ring!”

17. Knowing how to listen to good advice:
“For instance, Jack taught me not to wear tan slacks with a tan turtleneck. I thought it looked nice but he, rightly, pointed out that it made me look like a giant condom.

18. The real “I’m looking for” speech that we all secretly want to give:
“I want someone who will be monogamous and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals, but knows to just shut his mouth when I’m watching Lost. And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking out forks as needed, like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms like a damn Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me, even when I’m old.”
