You were acting like a maniac and then you threaten her with a bomb. No, I said I didn't have a bomb. I said it's not like I had a bomb on an airplane. You said bomb on an airplane. What's wrong with saying bomb on an airplane?
You can't say bomb on an airplane. A co-worker of Norm's comes in. We've got a specialist. How'd you get here? I didn't do anything, Jack. Well, then tell these guys that I'm not a terrorist. I'm not gonna tell anybody anything until you answer some questions. Unless you want to spend the next couple of years of your life in prison, you better goddamn well tell me the truth.
Did you do this? Just answer the questions. Did you have me taken off of that airplane? Just answer the question. Put your hands over there.
You're sick, you know that? Is your name Gaylord Focker? Are you a male nurse? Are you a pothead? Have you ever smoked pot? And you did that because you were desperately seeking my approval?
Because you love my daughter Pam? Do you wanna marry her? Do you want to marry her? What does that mean? I love your daughter, Jack. I love her more than anything. But frankly, sir, I'm a little terrified of being your son-in-law.
This whole weekend has given me a lot of doubts about whether or not I could even survive in your family. I think you've got some serious issues. If I lighten up, would you consider marrying my daughter? Would you lighten up a lot? Would you promise to let me and Pam live our lives and not interfere all the time? I promise not to interfere in your lives all the time. Will you stop making fun of me for being a nurse? Could you at least try, maybe, to consider another profession?
Jack, yes or no? Wilson brought a lot of his own ideas to Meet the Parents. He improvised many of his lines. Meet the Parents launched one of the most successful movie franchises of all time. Torquemada is credited with organizing the Spanish Inquisition — his name is synonymous with torture. Love Note Stiller flew out to L.
She thought he was still in NY. He surprised her at home with a path of candles and rose petals. Music Note Randy Newman composed the score.
Could you milk me? Top Gun was the 1 movie inwhich means Pam and Kevin dated almost 14 years before this. Blythe Danner said her character was inspired by the famous comedienne Gracie Allen. Jinx is a Himalayan cat — a difficult breed to train.
The trainers begged dir. I think he still maintains an interest. You make it sound like they're really hard to please. No, not at all! He's the sweetest man in the whole world. He's gonna love you. As much as he loves Dr. Take it easy on the sarcasm.
Humor is entirely wasted on my parents. What, are they Amish? What are you doing? I told you my dad sees smoking as a sign of weakness. Okay, all right, I'll leave 'em in the car. No, no, no, no, he'll check there.
Yeah, the roof is probably a better idea. And, oh, uh, we're not living together. I thought you said you told him. I missed you so much, Pamcake. I missed you too, Flapjack. Mom, Dad, this is Greg.
I'm Pam's father, Jack Byrnes. Great to finally meet you. Welcome to Oyster Bay. What are you driving there, a Ford? Oh, yeah, it's a Taurus. We were gonna get a mid-size, but I figure, hey, we pull down decent bucks. Might as well go all out, pop for the full-size. Oh, no, the guy at the counter. Well, they say geniuses pick green.
What smells of old sour milk? Oh, poor Greg got spit up on by a baby. Yeah, he did, Ma, at the lost luggage counter. The airline lost his bag. What about you, honey? Oh, no, no, no.
It'll turn up, I'm sure. And anyway, Greg, meanwhile, anything you need, just ask. Mi casa es su casa. Oh, now, Greg, you have a very unique last name. Um, we were curious, how do you pronounce it? Oh, just like it's spelled. There's our little guy. Come to Daddy, Jinxy. This is Pam's cat, Jinxy. Jinxy, say hello to Greg. That took me another week. Pam, I didn't know you had a cat.
Yeah, I left him here when I moved to Chicago. Your daddy's found his new best friend. You won't believe it. He even taught him to use the potty. Dad, that's kinda weird, isn't it? Now we don't have to smell kitty litter all the time. How did you teach the cat to use the toilet? Oh, that was easy, Greg. I just designed a litter box to put inside the toilet, and then once he got used to it, I took it away.
But I don't think he likes it. I mean, every chance he gets, he tries to dig, squat and bury. I had to move all my potted plants off the floor. Plus, you got another guy around the house to leave the seat up. He can't lift the seat, Greg. He lacks the strength and the opposable thumbs. Opposable-- I didn't think about that. Jinx is strictly a house cat. Can't let him outside because he lacks outdoor survival skills.
One of those things, isn't it, sweetheart? I don't think Greg will be playing with Jinxy too much. I don't-- I don't hate cats.
Day by Day (Godspell song) - Wikipedia
I just happen to be more of a dog lover. Well, that's okay if you hate cats, Greg. I don't hate cats at all. Just be honest about it. There's some things I hate. I-- I'm being honest.

Anyway, yeah, the guy said with regular watering, it should bloom in about six months, so-- Oh, we'll look forward to that, Greg. I, uh, I recently got transferred to triage. Oh, is that better than a nurse? No, Mom, triage is a unit of the E. It's where all the top nurses work. Well-- No, they do.
No, Jack, not traditionally. Oh, Pam, honey, did you know that your father started his own business? Yes, I thought with my knowledge and experience, why should I allow retirement to stop me? I really admire that. So what is it? What's the new venture? Let me ask you a question, Greg. Let's just say you have kids So, you hire a baby-sitter, someone you think you can trust. References, work experience-- it all checks out fine.

Greg, how come you don't like cats? I don't not like cats. I-l just-- I just prefer dogs. I mean, I'm just more of a dog kind of, you know-- Come home, wagging their little tails, happy to see you kind of-- You need that assurance? You prefer an emotionally shallow animal?
