HANK: The new guy starts on Monday, and I'm kind of nervous for him. It can't be easy, coming in as a rookie to a championship team.
PEGGY: That's true. Thirteen years later, Ladybird still has it out for Bobby.

HANK: That was Marettie's Grill. They're having trouble with the burners again. I need an eight-inch "L" pipe.
RICH: That's what she said!
HANK: Oh, did their hostess call too?
RICH: Uh... yeah.
HANK: Huh. Here's one. Well, I should be back soon. I just hope the threading's not stripped -- if I have to do it manually, I'll be down there for hours.
ENRIQUE: That's what she said! Right?
RICH: Yes, Enrique, that is exactly what she said.
HANK: Yeah. Heh-heh. Don't know why I'm laughing. It sounds like I'm gonna be down there all night.

PEGGY: People do love the off-color jokes. You would not believe how many times the kids ask me how to say "poo-poo" in Spanish. It's La tierra della trasero. The literal translation is "The earth of the butt." I made it up, but the kids seem to like it.
BOBBY: And how!

BOOMHAUER: I tell you what, man, it's like the dang ol' world's becoming a sewer... got them shock jocks, and them rappers too... got Miss Manners' panties in a bunch, man.
BILL: You're right. I can't believe the filth they're putting on TV these days. And they beam it right into my home. I hit the pay-per-view button, and there it is, right in front of me.

MR. STRICKLAND: Y'all should be well advised to do what this man tells you. He is my proxy when I am in abstentia.

MR. STRICKLAND: You're fast, boy.
RICH: That's what she said -- about Joe Jack!
MR. STRICKLAND: You're funnier than that comedian who ruined Monday Night Football!

BILL: Hey, Hank, you want a beer?
HANK: What I want is a professional working environment where it's hard work that earns your colleagues' respect, and not the ability to rhyme your name with a body part. You got that in your cooler, Bill?
BILL: If I check, you're gonna make fun of me, right?

HANK: Thanks for seeing me, Mrs. Borginnis.
MS. BORGINNIS: It's Ms. Borginnis, but yes, I'm married, and Borginnis is my husband's name.

HANK: This guy Rich has been making a lot of jokes.
MS. BORGINNIS: Jokes? What kind of jokes? Knock-knock? Ding-dong? What are we talking about here?
HANK: Uh... jokes that use vulgarity. You know, jokes about morning nature functions. Plus I can't say the word "meat" without someone giggling. And yesterday, someone took my employee of the month picture and drew a beard on it. But not where you think.

HANK: Sexual harassment is an umbrella term. It doesn't just cover women, but also men, and -- uh -- transgendered individuals.
PEGGY: Hank, you could be a trailblazer. Now, I know it is not easy being the first, but it could mean that you will be the last. That's a good line for the movie. JoBeth Williams will knock it out of the park!

HANK: I talked to this lawyer, and she thinks we have a case for male-on-male sexual harassment.
ENRIQUE: Sexual harassment?!
HANK: It's an umbrella term.

HANK: Don't you wish we could still say words like "meat" and "tool" and "unit" without someone turning it into something foul? Well, those are our words. I say we take 'em back.

HANK: Okay, team, gather round. I'm going to tell you about the new improvements to the Wagner 2800 series. The first thing is that it'll smoke your meat. And it's got a nice big rack for your buns.
ENRIQUE: Or weiners.
HANK: Or weiners. Why not?
JOE JACK: Feels good to say "weiners" again.
DONNA: Or "sausage."
