Aired January 26, 2016

Johnny and Moira try to grab a bargain at a local estate sale. Meanwhile, David helps Roland buy an outfit for Jocelyn, and Mutt buys Alexis a bicycle.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Are they durable?
Wendy: Oh well, durability's a given here at the "Blouse Barn." And if you're asking my opinion-
David: Are we, though?
Wendy: It's between these two.
Roland: Well, this is a real "Sophie's Choice!"
David: I hope that you and Jocelyn don't role play that at home.
Roland: Hell, we've played every Streep movie.

Quote from Ray

Ray: And sold! To Johnny Rose, for the price of $15 dollars. Which, uh, I hope you can afford. You know, considering your financial situation.
Johnny: Yeah, I get it, Ray. I get it. I get it. I've got cash, and I'd just like my cufflinks, please.

Quote from Moira

Johnny: I wonder who got my golf clubs.
Moira: Really, John, that's the first thing that comes to mind?
Johnny: They were custom made.
Moira: So was my Galapagonian tortoise-shell foot bath. And now some lonely hoarder is letting his cats poop in it.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Have you ever seen "The Devil Wears Prada?"
David: Obviously!
Roland: Okay, well, Meryl Streep plays this kind of powerful, sexy fashion woman-
David: Yep, I've seen it!
Roland: Okay, anyway, Jocelyn and I like to have a little fun with that idea, if you know what I mean. She plays Meryl, and I play the nervous but ambitious intern who's new to the city.
David: Oh, so you're the- So you- You're the Anne Hathaway in that situation?
Roland: I don't know who that is.
David: Well, that's more than enough information for me to go on.

Quote from David

Alexis: Okay, so you have to keep it upright.
David: I don't even wanna do this!
Alexis: David, you're gonna feel so good, trust me.
David: Oh, my God, you know that I have bad foot-eye coordination, you didn't have to wear corrective leg braces for three months.
Alexis: You can't blame everything on having been pigeon-toed, David.

Quote from David

David: It's just that I'm finding both of these options to be a little um...
Wendy: What?
David: Well, I don't know, we've just spent so much time and energy finding the few pieces that aren't, um, uh-
Wendy: What?!
David: I'm trying to find the word to describe what I-
Wendy: Oh, flirty? Sassy?
David: Skanky! I think the clothes are a bit skanky.
Roland: Hmm. Well. Skanky. We'll um, take the funereal skirt then, and the skanky blouse.

Quote from Roland

David: Well, thank you for this delightful trip.
Roland: You know, I'm starting to get the feeling that uh, you're a little upset.
David: What would give you that impression?
Roland: Well, I first noticed it when Heart came on, and nobody was taking the high parts.

Quote from Roland

David: Can I help you with something?
Roland: Well, um, here's the deal. Uh, I was thinking this morning, and I don't wanna tell you where I was thinking, but it was a small room in my house, and I was sitting down.
David: Okay.

Quote from Moira

Johnny: You know what I think, I think they tried it out, and uh, it just didn't work for them.
Moira: And by tried it out, you mean...
Johnny: I mean they tried it out.
Moira: Eww! Oh God! No! Oh! Oh! Oh God, that's memory foam, John!
Johnny: Oh, Moira, we've stayed at Kennedy compound, this can't be any worse than that!
Moira: The Kennedys aren't Roland! The Kennedys have regular medicals, daily laundering!

Quote from Moira

Moira: Oh, John, I don't know. Lamps, clothing, jewellery... Look at this poor woman's life strewn across cheap folding tables. John, do you think they did this with our things?
Johnny: No, not ours, no. They put our stuff right on the lawn.
Moira: Strangers picking through precious pieces we owned!
Johnny: I know, and judging us, like we're judging this poor woman.
Moira: Well, except they'd have been saying, "what great taste they had!"

Quote from Moira

Johnny: Well, they were just things, Moira, just things.
Moira: Yeah, designer, one-of-a-kind things.
Johnny: Yeah, sleek, oak-trimmed, leather interior, German-engineered things.
Moira: Oh! Shopping used to cheer me up. Big bulbs is not doing it for me.

Quote from David

Roland: And I was thinking to myself, who can I trust to help me pick out a woman's blouse? And you know whose name came to mind?
David: I don't- I don't know, Rachel Zoe?
Roland: Yours!
David: I don't know how to take that.

Quote from Roland

Roland: It's for Jocelyn.
David: Mm.
Roland: And you know, I would do it myself, it's just that you know, shopping, I mean, you go in, you get- You know, look at the stuff on the racks.
David: Uh-huh.
Roland: And you pick out, you know, the colour that you like, and then you try it on and make sure it fits you...
David: Right.
Roland: And then you buy it and you-
David: You're just describing what shopping is.

Quote from Alexis

Mutt: The whole purpose of having a bike might be to actually ride the bike.
Alexis: Yeah, I'm just not wearing the right outfit.
Mutt: It's a five minute ride.
Alexis: Yeah, so by the time we get on, and then we get off, it's almost not worth it.
Mutt: Do you not like the bike?
Alexis: No, I love it! It's just that, um, there are so many drunk drivers around here.
Mutt: It's 10:00am.
Alexis: Mutt, you tell that to an alcoholic!

Quote from Moira

Johnny: Moira, look at these cufflinks.
Moira: Oh, John, we're better off stealing cutlery from the cafe!

Quote from Moira

Jocelyn: Look at you two bargain hunters. You finding anything yet?
Moira: Mm, nothing you couldn't see fall out of a common Christmas cracker!

Quote from Roland

Roland: Now, we need a top, and we need a bottom. Like a skirt, something like that, which I know you're familiar with 'cause you're wearing one.
David: Okay, these are pants that just so happen to have a pant fabric over the front and back. Okay.
Roland: Yeah, it's a skirt.

Quote from David

Roland: Um, what about this? It seems durable, yes?
David: Yeah, um, in fashion, durable and elegant rarely go hand in hand. So I'd put that put that back.

Quote from Mutt

Alexis: You're judging me!
Mutt: I'm not! It's just riding a bike is a pretty basic skill.
Alexis: Mm, is it though?
Mutt: I think that most kids learn how to ride a bike!
Alexis: Yeah well, most kids also get head lice. I'm sorry if the opportunity never presented itself.
Mutt: Oh. What, there was no gap year in Belgium? No Tour de France boyfriend?

Quote from Alexis

Alexis: Yeah, but I never had to ride the bike. And David, was such a little drama queen when my parents tried teaching him, that they threw all the bikes into this big bonfire up in the Hamptons, and we never talked about it again.

Quote from Alexis

Alexis: Anyway, I have lots of skills that you don't have.
Mutt: I am sure that you do.
Alexis: Like, have you ever had to negotiate in Arabic? It is very difficult.
Mutt: I believe you.
Alexis: And try getting into "Kiss Kiss" in Tokyo without a lock of human hair.
Mutt: Now, you see, if you can do all that, I'm pretty sure that you can learn to ride a bike. Alexis?
Alexis: Sorry, I was just thinking about this crazy night at "Kiss Kiss."

Quote from Moira

Johnny: Moira, what are you doing?
Moira: We are currently sleeping on a rectangular collection of knives and barbed wire, John.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Well Johnny, I'm about to make you the most popular guy in room 6.
Johnny: Is this the mattress?
Roland: Okay, yeah, I've got a big heart, all right, don't spread it around. I talked Jocelyn into letting you have it.
Johnny: You're giving us the mattress?
Roland: Well, practically, it's yours for $200 bucks.
Johnny: That's a dollar less than you paid for it!

Quote from Roland

Roland: Johnny, it's barely out of the plastic.
Johnny: We can't afford it.
Roland: Oh, I see. You're the master negotiator at work here, huh? Okay, um, $195.
Johnny: We can't afford it.
Roland: Okay, hardball, huh? I'll play. Um, $182.50.
Johnny: All right, bye, Roland.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Fifty bucks.
Johnny: Fifty?
Roland: Look, I'll level with you, okay? Um, we tried it out as soon as Jocelyn brought it home.
Johnny: You tried it out?
Roland: Yeah, not enough bounce for the bumps, if you know what I mean.
Johnny: Hmm.
Roland: But given your advanced years, it might just be the thing for you and Moira.

Quote from Alexis

Alexis: David? David, what is this?
David: It looks like a bike.
Alexis: Is it yours?
David: Yes. Yes, it is.
Alexis: David, what is this doing here?
David: You might wanna read the note.
Alexis: No, is it from Mutt? David!

Quote from Alexis

David: I feel like he really gets you. Like, I feel like he sees like, deep into your soul. I'm not quite sure what he's seeing exactly, but there's definitely... He's looking inward.
Alexis: What am I gonna do?!
David: About what?
Alexis: This is serious, David. This is so off base! Argh! My God, imagine what kind of ring he'd buy! Like an opal, or something.
David: Ooh, like a pear-shaped opal.

Quote from Alexis

Mutt: Well, I thought you needed a new mode of transportation.
Alexis: I do! I do need a mode of transportation! And like, a car would be nice, but, do I need a car?
David: Not anymore, it appears.
Mutt: Well, you said you missed spin class, so I did!
Alexis: I did say that I missed spin class. And so you bought me a bike! Because I said that I missed spin class. Because you're so thoughtful and perceptive.

Quote from Alexis

Mutt: So you like it?
David: Mm, I'd say she loves it.
Mutt: Well, you're gonna need this.
David & Alexis: A helmet!
Mutt: It came with the bike.
David: I think you should put it on. Like, I think you should actually like, like, put the helmet on.
Mutt: Yeah. And I will one day, when we take this little pony for a joyride! Actually, I brought my bike, so we can test it out. I thought maybe we could take a little ride to the cafe.
Alexis: Ah! So fun. [mouthing] I hate you, David!
David: See 'ya!

Quote from Johnny

Johnny: What about lamps? The lamps at the motel have those, uh, little bulbs. These are old-fashioned big bulb lamps.
Moira: I don't see any bulbs here.
Johnny: No, there aren't. But the point is, we can get big bulbs if we have big bulb lamps.

Quote from David

David: So you're looking for me to style Jocelyn?
Roland: Well, actually, this is supposed to be a surprise. So I was kinda thinking that maybe um, you and me could just go out and do a little uh, shopping together on the down low.
David: Y- Yeah, yeah. That, um... No, we could to that, we could do that at some point.
Roland: Oh, great!
David: Yeah. Yeah.
Roland: Good, that's terrific. So then, whenever's good for you.
David: Okay, great. [Roland stands about] So you wanna- So you wanna go now?
Roland: It's a little time sensitive, that's the only thing.
David: Yeah, okay, well, I take it you have measurements, and a mood board, then?

Quote from Moira

Jocelyn: Ooh, look at that mattress!
Johnny: Well, there you go, what a find.
Moira: Poor dear. Enchanted by a death bed.

Quote from Johnny

Jocelyn: This is a brand new mattress, it's still in the plastic!
Moira: What?!
Jocelyn: Yeah! And it's memory foam! This must've cost a fortune!
Johnny: Well, you're just gonna have to bid on it.
Moira: John, why didn't you see that mattress first?! That's something we could actually use!
Johnny: I'll use the cufflinks!

Quote from David

David: Well, this might be the closest we're gonna get to Meryl. You know, if she got fired from her job at the magazine, and started walking the streets.

Quote from Roland

Wendy: Missing Peter Pan?
David: I'm sorry?
Wendy: Well, because I see a couple of "Lost Boys." Hi, I'm Wendy. Are we shopping for a mother, a girlfriend?
Roland: Actually, my wife.
David: Yeah, we've got it under control though, so thank you so much.
Wendy: Oh well, very well, then. If you need me, I'll be right here. I know how hard it can be for two men in a women's clothing store.
Roland: Well, I'm actually in really good hands, because this man has a woman's touch.
David: I don't I don't know what that means.

Quote from Roland

David: Okay, so we're going with these two pieces.
Wendy: Oh, well, I have to ask, is this for a funeral? Because we do offer bereavement discounts.
David: No, why would you think that?
Wendy: Well, just very sombre, serious pieces.
Roland: Well, we don't want that.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Would you describe either of those as "quick release?"
Wendy: Funnily enough, both have snaps.
Roland: Oh, great.

Quote from Moira

Moira: Do you remember what we used to sleep on? Texas Kings!

Quote from Moira

Ray: Sold, to Jocelyn Schitt, for $201 dollars.
Moira: Fuck.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Look you should feel good about yourself! Come on, you made some great choices today.
David: Nothing we bought today came anywhere close to something Meryl Streep would wear in "The Devil Wears Prada," nothing!
Roland: Oh jeez, you are so touchy! God, you're like a- A fancy dinner plate that you don't wanna nudge off the edge of the table.

Quote from David

David: Listen, I don't have a lot to my name right now, but I do have one thing.
Roland: Self-respect?
David: No, taste. And when that is not appreciated, or worse, publicly undermined, publicly. Uh, yeah. I might get a little upset.

Quote from Roland

Roland: Listen. If I wasn't so easily swayed by powerful women in a retail environment, I would've been there for you. Okay, because I honestly believe that really do have a very, very sharp eye.
David: Thank you, that's nice of you to say.
Roland: Trust me, when Joc sees this blouse, I'm gonna make sure she knows you're the one that picked it out.
David: I didn't pick that blouse.
Roland: I know, but I'm gonna tell her you did.
David: Okay, thanks so much.

Quote from Twyla

Twyla: Is everything okay? People were saying that a girl was struggling with her bike. I kinda just assumed it was a toddler.

Quote from Twyla

Twyla: Get the hell outta here, you dumb broad! That was another thing he used to say.

Quote from Johnny

Johnny: This has gotta be better than the motel mattress we were using. I mean, who knows who tried that out!
Moira: Is that supposed to be helping me?!
Johnny: Moira, this is a $50 dollar gift from heaven. I mean, look, hey! I don't feel any springs, no nails, no bolts! It's comfy, come to bed.
Moira: Tomorrow we get a mattress cover.
Johnny: Yes, yes, that's the spirit. Seriously, don't think about it.

Quote from Alexis

Alexis: David, the pedals make it move more!
