Marry Me Season 1 Episode 5 Quotes

Jake, please. I really want to host this like Norman Rockwell-esque Thanksgiving where I come out and I'm holding the turkey like this and everyone's like, "Oh my god how does she do it? She makes it look so easy. She's like Jackie O meets Murphy Brown with Jennifer Aniston's arms."

Annie

Kay: You're taking American cheese singles to a holiday dinner party? Was the last Thanksgiving you went to hosted by a Garbage Pail Kid?
Gil: Ha ha, you're hilarious Kay, but you know you're not supposed to encourage my beliefs that the Garbage Pail Kids are real.
Kay: God, talking to you is not great.
