Joey: Me? What do you do around here besides walking around like you're trying to get raped?
Joan: Excuse me?

Joan: Cut it out, and don't make me come out here again.
Joey: Sorry, Mom!

Joan: I don't like sitting at my desk and looking into a garbage dump.
Joey: Although I am paid less, I am still not a janitor.

Joan: Not very subtle are they?

Roger: What's that about?
Joan: Because there's nothing funny about this.
