  • Billy (Looking at the to-do list that Jason has just made them for the Garrity house): Why do we have to do all the stuff upstairs?
    Jason (sitting in his wheelchair next to Herc): I'm gonna pretend you didn't just ask that.
  • Jason: What are you doing out of school? (to Billy) What did you write him a note or something?
    Tim: I told them I was pregnant. Need a few days to relax.
  • (After a girl passing by says hello to Tim)
    JD: How many girlfriends do you have?
    Tim (looking at Lyla): Just the one, McCoy.
    JD (looking at Lyla, too): God, she is so pretty.
    Tim: Yeah, she is pretty special, man.
  • Tyra: A woman showed up at my house with a baby looking for child support from Cash.
    Julie: It could be worse
    Tyra: Really? I don't see how it could get worse.
    Julie: She could be his sister. (Tyra laughs)
    Tyra: Sounds like something Landry would say.
