STORY 1: When George really lets himself go after the breakup, a worried Tessa calls on George's dad, Emmett, to help snap him out of it.

Tessa: "Functioning people don't eat hamburgers before nine a.m."

Emmett: "There's a child in the house! Have you thought about what kind of impression you're making?"
Tessa: "Other than the one on the sofa?"
George: "You hush your lips!"

Emmett: "I want you to go get yourself all cleaned up. There's a swingles event in town that I've RSVP'ed for."
George: "Sorry, Dad--"
Emmett: "Look, a man's RSVP is his word!"

Dallas (to Emmett): "Based on your ignorance of local wine regulations, combined with your arresting-yet-unfamiliar face, I'm going to extrapolate that you're not from these parts."


STORY 2: When Ryan brings his new girlfriend home for a visit, Tessa struggles to deal with the fact that she is much more of a Tessa type than a Ryan type.

Sheila: "And Heaven has angels."

Tessa: "Isn't it obvious? She's like a poor man's me! Oh, don't tell me you don't see it! She's completely Tessa-like."
Lisa: "We don't even know her."
