Dick: Mom and Debbie Weaver got dressed up went to Hell. As far as I’m concerned, you can all go there too.

Debbie: I’m a mom. I’m a limo driver without a limo.

Larry: You feed this to your children? Is it to punish them?
Debbie: No, Larry, it’s not a punishment. It’s called cereal.
Larry: It’s 98% processed sugar spray painted pink. You’re better off eating the box.

Debbie: Larry, your wife is a 10.
Larry: Out of how many? If she’s a 10 I’m at least a 38.

Debbie: Oh my God, I’m dressed like Adam Sandler.

Debbie: If I were to get all styled up, do you think I could get into a club?
Amber: A book club?

Larry: This is real life, kids. It’s not TV! We are a family of aliens living amongst humans and every week we tackle a new problem together, and learn that while we may be from different backgrounds, even planets, family dynamics are in fact universal. It’s real life, kids, it’s not TV!

Debbie: Marty, you are always surprising me. Just when I think I’m sitting here looking at this goofy man-child who can’t even put Neosporin on his own elbow, and feeling like my life is getting claustrophobic and closing in on me, you say exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks for understanding, babe.
Marty: Goofy man-child?

Marty (to Amber): I need you to help me step up my look for your mom.
Larry: Step in line, pal. I’m getting pretty first. I went to the grocery store and found that Jackie is better looking than me.
Marty: Oh, buddy. You didn’t have to go all the way to the grocery store to learn that.
Amber: Well played, Dad.
Larry: I’m reeling. I’m not used to being like you: far less attractive than my wife.
Amber: And Larry Bird gets on the board.

Michael Bay: You an actress?
Debbie: I did a play in junior high, but that’s it.
Michael Bay: Shame. You’d look so good walking away from an explosion in slow-motion.

Marty: Michael Friggin’ Bay hit on my sexy wife.
Debbie: I don’t know if it’s sexy or weird that it’s turning you on.
Marty: I don’t know either, but it’s happening.
