George: Mel, do you know about your son?
Mel: Wow. If you were a Vietnamese cocktail waitress with a DNA sample, this would be one heck of a deja vu.

Max: Hey, Grandma, you might wanna stand up now, because those pigs are gonna be flying out of your butt!!

George [to Zack about Carmen]: I'm not warning you again, it's over between you two.
Zack: I think it'll be over when Carmen decides to get out of bed to make me a sandwich.
[George jumps to attack him]

Zack: My dad knows I'm here.
George: I don't care.
Ernie: Me either, I got $15,000 in the bank, I'll just live off the interest.

Carmen [to George and Angie]: You read my diary?! I hate you!
George: I know. It's written on every page in here. (reading the diary) "I hate Dad. God, I hate Dad." "Hey old lady, hang up the mini-skirt. You're not fifteen anymore." (to Angie) Oh, hey, that one's about you.
Carmen: You had no right to read this!
Angie: You lost all your rights when you lied to us. And if we have to look in your diary to find the truth about Zack, then that's what we'll do.
Carmen: Oh, you want the truth?! Well here it is: I'm dating Zack because I love him, and he loves me too!
Angie: Carmen, he doesn't love you! He's just using you.
George: Look, he told me he was going to dump you as soon as he got you into bed.
Carmen: You're lying! You hate him so much you'd say anything to keep us apart.
George: Yeah? Did I make up that he vandalized the factory? That he got a girl pregnant?
Angie: He didn't even respect the girl enough to be safe.
Carmen: You guys don't understand Zack! His dad was never there for him and his mom's a bitter old drunk. You have no idea what that's like!
[Benny hides her beer]
George (to Benny): Do you want to field that one?

George: I remember my mom saying: "If you don't like it here, I don't like you here. Get out!"
Angie: What did you do?
George: I stopped throwing my peas off the high chair!

Police Officer [to Benny]: Ma'am, you look familiar, have we met before?
Benny: George, this cop is never going to find your daughter. He has arrested me three times and he STILL doesn't remember me!
Police Officer: You're the woman we maced who said, "Is that all you got?"

[George flashes back to young Carmen who comes in the kitchen with a puzzle]
Young Carmen: Daddy, can you help me put this together?
George: (drinking beer and reading the paper) Not now, Carmen. I'm busy.
[Carmen leaves the kitchen]
[End of flashback]
George: Angie, I'm going to find Carmen and bring her back.
