Johnny: It's a figure of speech.
David: Um, I don't get that.

Quote from Our Cup Runneth Over

Lawyer: You bought a small town in 1991, Johnny.

Johnny: That was the joke!

Moira: Well, aren't you Mr. Futuristic!

Quote from Motel Review

David: There's no address on this.
Johnny: Oh, wow. Aren't we stuck in the Dark Ages. Huh? Let me break it down for you, junior. If they're at the motel using the coasters, they don't need to know where the motel is.
David: Um, I was referring to a web address. Or a Twitter handle.
Johnny: Oh.
Moira: Hmm, that might be something you'd wanna put on there.

Johnny: All right, let me write this down.
David: Or a hashtag.
Johnny: A hashtag? Is that two words?
David: No, it's not.

Quote from The Roast

Johnny: Well, things seem to be going downhill fast. Which is what the town must've been thinking when Roland elected himself Mayor. [laughter]
Roland: Okay, I'll give him that.
Johnny: Oh, got a smile out of Ronnie. The last time anyone saw her this happy was at a 3-for-1 sale on cargo pants! [laughter]
Ronnie: Where? Where? [laughter]
Roland: All right, Johnny, starting to make some moves, now.
Johnny: Cargo, I said car-go, which is what a car is supposed to do unless you take it to Bob's Garage! [laughter]

Quote from Smoke Signals

Johnny: Well, you're here now, Moira, and so am I. And, with your career behind you, we'll be able to... take advantage of more days like this. Does this not remind you of that wellness retreat we went to in Evian, right after Alexis ended things with Sean Penn?
Moira: Yes. You and I wandered down to the lake, ne'ery a person to be found. Bid adieu to our clothing and let the cool sting of the mineral water remind us that we were, in fact, alive and well.
Johnny: I lost my Patek Philippe in that lake, but I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Quote from Don't Worry, It's His Sister

Johnny: I don't hate you. I don't hate you.
Roland: Well, then, why do you have a problem with a sign that celebrates my family?
Johnny: It's not- It's just the way they're celebrating, that's all.
Roland: Okay, so now you hate my family.
Johnny: I don't hate your family.
Roland: Well then, what is your big fat problem with the sign?!
Johnny: It looks like your great grandfather's fucking your great grandmother right up the ass!

Quote from Don't Worry, It's His Sister

Roland: Oh my go- That is so demented!
Johnny: You can't tell me you don't see that.
Roland: Well, you know, now that you put that creepy thought in my head, sure, I- I see it, but you got it all wrong, pal. Let me enlighten you, Mr. Johnny Rose! That isn't even Horace's wife! That's his sister.
Johnny: Well, how does that make it any better?
Roland: Ohhh! Well, I don't know how they do things where you come from, but around these parts, we don't do that sort of thing with our sisters!
Johnny: Roland, how is anybody driving past this sign supposed to know the woman getting banged from behind is that man's sister?!
Roland: Oh my.

Quote from New Car

Johnny: Now, I'm not staying long, I just came by to borrow some clothes.
Roland: Ah, okay. Honey, why don't you check your closet, and see if you got anything that Johnny can fit into.
Johnny: Look, Moira and I are going to a used car lot today, and I just need to appear more, um...
Roland: Official?
Johnny: Casual. Casual. You see, I've got a closet full of suits, but, uh, I don't wanna be taken advantage of because I'm overdressed, I need to look like I don't have money.
Jocelyn: But you don't have any money.
Johnny: Oh, I know I don't have any money, but I need to look like I don't have money.

Quote from The Rollout

Johnny: We made sure to order those products in time for the rollout.
David: What rollout?
Johnny: The Rosebud Motel rollout. New name, new branding, flowers in all the rooms. New custom towels, all part of the rollout.
David: Um, who taught you rollout?
Alexis: May have been me. Sorry.
Johnny: You know, other than your little blunder, it would've been a flawless rollout.
Alexis: Okay, you really need to stop saying rollout.

Quote from The Roast

Johnny: Well listen, I don't want to overstay my welcome, I'll keep things short and quick. Which reminds me of the last time I was in Roland's bedroom. Um, well, I-I wasn't in Roland's bedroom, but the- Ah! What was it, Ronnie?
Ronnie: Just sit down, Johnny.
Johnny: Well anyway, the punchline is, it was short and quick. [forced laughter] Anyway, I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead, folks.
Roland: I think it's a little late for that, pal.

Quote from The Drip

Moira: Or you could go alone, John. Since you are the one who did not get the contract signed.
Johnny: Moira, Roland wants the family there tonight, so my family has to go tonight. Let me explain something about business.
Moira: Don't you dare.
Johnny: It's a dance. And sometimes you lead. And sometimes you follow.
Moira: And which are you doing now, John?
Johnny: I am leading, Moira.
Moira: In a Roland game, I think you're following.
Johnny: Following in the game but leading in the dance, right? And he thinks he's leading in the dance, but only because I've allowed him to think-
Moira: Are you listening to this?
David: Hmm?
Johnny: It doesn't matter. I'm leading.
