Quote from Michael

Michael: This is gonna be our best summer ever, buddy.
Narrator: And so, Michael, his son and his brother together enjoyed the cathartic burning of the banana stand.
Michael: You mailed that insurance check, right, Gob?
[As Gob backs away on a Segway, Michael chases after him]


Quote from Lindsay

Narrator: The next morning, Lindsay woke up late in the day hungover from celebrating her one day of employment which, it turns out, she had slept through.
Casting Director: [on phone] All right, Lindsay, forget it. We'll get someone else.
Narrator: Tobias was next on the call list but, unfortunately, couldn't hear the phone over the sound of the shower.
[Tobias sobs in the shower]
Narrator: He did, however, use Lindsay's conditioner and was surprised to find that it did help his self-esteem.
Lindsay: Mornin'. You look nice.
T-Bone: What?
Lindsay: You look very handsome today.
T-Bone: Thank you, Lindsay.
