  • Oz: Then what were you going to say to her?
    Aaron: I don't know what to say to her.
    Oz: You didn't have anything planned?
    Aaron: Ah, she was going to find the ring in the milkshake and I was going to say, let's get hitched.
    Oz: Hitched? Tractor trailers get hitched. You have to be romantic.
  • Michelle: Do you think I got what I did through luck?
    Dev: What, come on. No, my father always said luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
    Michelle: (smirks) So then I'm an opportunist.
    Dev: I mean, you have to be good to be lucky.
