Memorable Quotes

Ben: There's something wrong when the only person in the room not acting like a baby is the baby. This slump ends tonight. We're gonna get mom to babysit and we're going out.
Danny: Whoo!
Bonnie: (Comes in) What up, party animals?
Ben: Great timing, mom. Can you babysit?
Bonnie: Yeah, sure. Just give me 24 hours' notice. You know what the best part about living across the street from you guys is? I can see that I have a life and you don't. I'm having people over tonight, (Opens fridge to get...) and I just need to borrow some ice, some beer, some cold cuts, and (Takes a manipulator arm) whatever this is.

Ben: Jenna, hi! How's it going? Still gainfully employed?
Jenna: Better. You are looking at the new associate producer of "Chase Live!" I got the job.
Ben: Wait, that job? The job?
Jenna: After your little pep talk yesterday, I pulled out all the stops and I got it. Thank you so much.
Ben: Oh, no, no, no, no.
Jenna: Are you okay?
Ben: Yeah. I'm fine. I just sometimes express great joy by stuttering and sweating profusely. What happened to the other guy who was up for the job?
Jenna: I'll tell you what's going to happen. First thing tomorrow morning, I am firing him.
Ben: My name didn't happen to come up did it?
Jenna: Why would it? Oh, but I wish you could have seen the look on this guy's face when I got the job. It was priceless. (Ben sees Tucker standing outside the bar angry)
Ben: Yeah, I can picture it now. (Tucker gesturing he's going to punch him)

Tucker: Really, Ben? This was your plan? To literally knock out my competition? This is the most disgusting, underhanded thing you've ever done. Though I do appreciate your effort.
Ben: Tucker, come on. I only brought Jenna because Danny sat us with the big shots. I figured with both of us working them, we could get her an amazing job with the rangers, which I think we did. She has an interview tomorrow morning.
Tucker: Oh, okay. Wow! That's that's great. Just one little question. Why the hell wouldn't you try to get me an amazing job with the rangers?
Ben: ...Oh, yeah. That might have worked too.
