  • George: Look, Mom, I decided to invite Manny and his family over.
  • Benny: No. Hell, no. You know, it's bad enough you let that idiot back into your life. Why do you have to shove him into mine?
  • George: Manny's sick, Mom. He's got kidney disease.
  • Benny: Well, why didn't you say so? Of course Manny can come. This year, uh, when we go around the table and say what we're thankful for, let me go first.

  • Lydia: Oh, Angie, this is so great. Two families coming together for Thanksgiving. What is the name of George's strange friend again?
  • Angie: Ernie.

  • Benny: Why not? She spoiled my marriage. She spoiled her son. Oh, look. The guacamole's turning brown just 'cause she's sitting next to it.
