Jake: Are you shittin' me?
Melanie: I never fully understood that expression, but no, I am not shitting you.

Jake: Anybody think of anything in here that, uh, might bother Bobby Ray?

Jake: You still the same Bobby Ray from last night?

Lurlynn: You know he went up there?
Melanie: Who? Jake?
Lurlynn: I'm not supposed to know but Clinton let it slip once.
Melanie: When?
Lurlynn: About a year after you left. He told Clinton he'd never seen anything like it. He knew that it would take more than an apology to get you back. He'd have to conquer the world first. He's been trying ever since.
Melanie: That's why he kept sending the papers back.

Jake: Oh, I missed you all right, but at this range, my aim is bound to improve.

Bobby Ray: No I'll tell you what it's not like. It's not like Jake's the only one you run out on.

Melanie: Now what kind of wife would I be if I didn't pick up after my husband?
