[Melissa is giving therapy to a patient over the phone.]
Melissa: She did not marry your penis. Ok, she didn't only marry your penis.

Dusty: Bill, she just missed the truck!

Rabbit: Y'know, in a severe lightning storm, you want to grab your ankles and stick your butt in the air.
Haynes: He's right. If you're gonna get hit it's the safest orifice.
Joey: Yeah, I'd like to get by lightning once, y'know, see what it's like.

Rabbit: Where'd you get all this beef?
Aunt Meg: Did you see my cows out front?
Rabbit: No.
Aunt Meg: Op...aaah!
[laughter from everyone]
Rabbit: Oh.
Dusty: You slaughter your own cows! Meg, nice!

Dusty: So we get this one near Daleton right?
Rabbit: Oh, god.
Dusty: And we are way to close. And Jo's got the vid on it right, she's filming it. And all of the sudden, this shitty green Valiant comes pulling up right in the way.
Beltzer: And this loser stumbles out of the car, he has a bottle of Jack Daniel's in his hand...
Dusty: He is Naked!
Beltzer: Naked!
Joey: Naked!
Bill: NOT naked!
Bill: I was not naked!
Beltzer: [whispering into Melissa's ear] He was without apparel.
Bill: Half naked.
Dusty: Naked. Ok so Jo's yelling at him to get out of the way, right?
Dusty: And he just strolls up to the twister, says 'have a drink', and he chucks the bottle into the twister, and it NEVER hits the ground.

Bill: 4 is good, 4 will relocate your house fairly efficiently.
Melissa: Is there an F-5?
[silence falls over the group]
Melissa: What would that be like?
Preacher: The finger of God.

[A combine has just been dropped from a tornado.]
Jo: Debris! We have Debris!
Jo: Right! Left!
Bill: Which way now?
Jo: I have no idea.

[Bill, driving a truck, has been dodging multiple combines and gone through a house.]
Bill: Maybe we should get off of this road.

Jo: [during an argument] Can I drive?
Bill: No!
Jo: Then will you? [the truck is about to hit a tractor]
Bill: SHIT!

Jo: Where's my truck? [Jo's truck falls from the sky in the way of Melissa who brakes hard screaming] There it is.
