This whole thing has just gotten way too complicated. I mean, the other night in bed, I called Josh "Ben." And to cover it, I stretched it out into bennn...d over...and I ended up doing something I really never wanna do again. — Grace
|Karen:||Ever since I've been back, I've been getting these shooting pains.|
|Grace:||Well, have you done anything unusual since you've gotten home? Eaten? Loved? Worked?|
I know what guilt is. It's one of those touchy-feely words that people throw around that don't really mean anything... You know, like "maternal" or "addiction." — Karen
I'm not going to Queens! There are people living in cabs down there! Let her tunnel her way out! — Karen
My feelings aren't cute, I'm not the youngest brother on Eight is Enough. — Will
I gotta tell you, I find these toilets that flush themselves very threatening. — Rosario Salazar
