Quote from Sex, Lies & Kickball

Gloria: Shorty, you're kidding.
Shorty: I never joke when it comes to fruit. That miracle in your hand is a half plum, half apricot. There was a time they could only accomplish that in juice.

Quote from Bringing Up Baby

Phil: Sounds pretty good to me.
Shorty: You know, the more I look at you, the angrier I get that you don't got a beard.

Shorty: A soul patch? That's like a beard's crap.

Quote from Three Dinners

Shorty: You're calling me a cheater? You? The guy on the golf course who can't seem to count higher than 5?

Shorty: It is in my nature to comment on the bizarre and unusual things I see in the world, like that convulsion you call a golf swing.

Quote from Fifteen Percent

Shorty: You know, that guy's got a beautiful stroke. Look at his pants- no pleats. I like pants like that. You think I can get away with something like that?
Jay: Sure. Why not? Listen, Shorty, uh, we know each other a long time, right?
Shorty: What, 30 years?
Jay: Yeah. And, um, I sense that you got a secret that's maybe causing you a lot of anguish.
Shorty: You heard something, right?
Jay: Well, I had the same situation with my son, Mitchell.
Shorty: Really?
Jay: Yeah, and I didn't handle it too well either. And, uh, I just want you to know that you can open up to me, that I'm gonna do all I can to help you.
Shorty: Well, I mean I- I never said this out loud before to anyone. But I guess, if I did, it would be you. [chuckling] It's just that, Jay, you see, I'm, uh- I'm-
Jay: Go ahead. Yeah. Go ahead.

Jay: Wait a minute. You're not gay?

Shorty: My father was a tailor. I like clothes. So what? Are you calling my father gay?
Jay: No!
Shorty: My father landed on Normandy to save your ass. You know, if you weren't lending me 20 G's, I'd knock you out right now.
Jay: Take a check?
Shorty: Cash would be better.

Quote from Fifteen Percent

Shorty: Jay. Jay. Listen, I wanna thank you for, you know, helping me out with that jam.

Shorty: No. I'm talkin' about you and me.
Jay: Oh, you and me.
Shorty: Yeah.

Quote from A Year of Birthdays

Shorty: So, my ex-wife and I, we were on vacation with Jay and Gloria. They're walking down the beach, and my ex-wife says, "Whoa, look at all that skin." And I said, "Baby, come on." "What's wrong with that? She's a beautiful woman in a bikini." She said, "Oh, I'm talkin' about Jay's scalp." [laughter]

Quote from Sex, Lies & Kickball

Shorty: Oh, sorry, I kind of lost track of time.

Gloria: Blast means "yogurt."

Quote from Fifteen Percent

Shorty: Hey, hey, hey. That's a great coat. Where'd you get that?

Mitchell: Thank you.

Quote from Sex, Lies & Kickball

Jay: Hey, fella. What happened in there?
Shorty: I'm a fraud, Jay. I'm a damn fraud.
Jay: Come on. We all cry at weird stuff. For me, it's when boxers hug after a fight.
Shorty: It's not the crying I'm worried about. You were right. You said I would lose everything if I went to Costa Rica, and I did.
Jay: What are you talking about? I-I-I thought you were a big juice magnate.
Shorty: Lies! It's all lies, Jay! I'm not no juice magnate. I had a juice stand, and things were okay... until these monkeys got a hold of my knives. The lawyer says I can't talk about it. Then Darlene takes off with this honcho in zip lines and leaves me. That's why I've been avoiding you. I'm a disgusting loser!
Jay: Who are you talking to? You don't need to be embarrassed.
Shorty: But you said, "Don't come crying to me when it all turns to hell and I have to pick up the pieces." You said that!
Jay: It's just what you say. Of course I'm gonna pick up the pieces. What else would I do? You're my best friend.
Shorty: And you're my best friend, damn it.

Quote from Fifteen Percent

Shorty: You know what the problem is.
Jay: What?
Shorty: You're not moving your hips. They're frozen.
Jay: Hips?
Shorty: Yeah, your hips. They're frozen. Here, let me show you.
Jay: No, it's okay. All right, Shorty.
Shorty: No, no. Don't fight me. Just bring the club back. Go ahead. All right? Now turn those hips. That's it. You just gotta relax. You gotta open up the stance a little bit. Spread 'em. Spread 'em. That's it. If you don't relax, you're never gonna get that shaft where it belongs.

Quote from Bringing Up Baby

Jay: What are you doing? What the heck is that?
Phil: Making your birthday dreams comes true.
Shorty: It's your special day, buddy. Should we put him in the trunk?
Phil: Why would we put him in the trunk?
Shorty: You said there were no bad ideas.

Quote from Treehouse

Darlene: What was wrong with that guy?
Shorty: Yeah, I would have danced with him. He's got nice shoulders.
Gloria: Aw, you know, salsa is so intimate and sensual that it feels wrong to do it with somebody else that is not Jay.
