Maura: [as they game is about to start] I think it’s a fun tradition.
Trish: Yeah, because you’re sitting on the couch, drinking tea.
Maura: Yeah, sipping. Drinking is vulgar. I sip.
Maura: Oh, there’s Tom.
Lou: Oh, what a beautiful man.
Lou: He’s so well hydrated.
Trish: I prefer Gronkowski these days.
Betty: We know Trish. We’ve all read your Gronk erotica.
Trish: It’s not erotica. It’s fan fiction. Very sexy fan fiction.
Betty: No kidding.
Lou: You’re the original Mayflower Girl.
Betty: You’re just as beautiful now as you were back then.
Trish: Oh, God. Thank you. You know what it cost me to look like this? A fortune.
Lou: To the man who brought us all here, Tom Brady. Who never gives up, no matter what he’s up against. May the hand of fate continue to bless him with perfect spirals and the confidence to stand tall in the pocket.
Betty: Oh, Trish, you fall in love faster than any other human on Earth.
Trish: Well, we can’t all be with the same man for fifty years, Betty.
Trish: [referring to the Super Bowl] Two years ago, I could’ve paid for us all to go. But I divorced Ralph two weeks before the playoffs. Boy, do I regret that.
Betty: The divorce?
Trish: No, he was terrible. But the game was amazing.
Maura: It’s just that every time I hear that word “divorce”, I just think of Francisco. You know?
Betty: Oh, Maura. No. No. Your husband didn’t divorce you. He died.
Maura: It’s the same thing.

Lou: I’m serious. Let’s go to the Super Bowl.
Maura: The Super Bowl is no place for four old women.
Lou: This could be Tom’s last one. He’s almost forty. That’s like eighty in people years.
Trish: We’re eighty in people years!
Lou: So, let’s experience a Super Bowl. Because this might be our last chance.
Trish: God, that’s morbid.
Maura: Well, we got to work with what we got.

Donna: Oh, right. Oopsy.
Betty: You know, for a game where a bunch of guys just smash into each other, it’s really very complicated.
Lou: [as the gender reveal box pops open with balloons] I wanted it to be surprise. But all they had was gender reveal boxes.

Lou: No one! It’s not a gender reveal. It’s just a reveal!
Betty: Of what?
Lou: We’ve won the tickets! We’re going to the Super Bowl!

Trish: [over phone] No, Carl. I did not agree that we could see other people. That’s not dating. That’s cheating, and I’m done talking about it. I do not want to talk to you. I’m not interested in anything you have to say.
Lou: Wow, this chapter is really good. Oh, it’s so steamy.
Trish: No, it’s not finished. No. Not you, Carl. With you, it is finished.
Trish: Betty’s right. I have to stop falling in love.
Lou: No. You can fall in love. Just maybe wait till you’ve known them more than a week.
Lou: We’re going to the Super Bowl to enjoy men the way the Romans did. Sweaty, piled on top of one another. Tight pants.
Maura: My husband always said that I had great feet. But he just really liked feet.

Mickey: Lately, I’ve been realizing that it’s less about what you do, more about who you do it with, you know? I look around this place, and you’re the only one I really want to be around, you know? It seems like you got it all figured out and…
Mickey: [looks over to see Maura is asleep] Talking to myself.
Lou: Stop honking. Betty hates it. She thinks it’s bad manners.
Trish: I know. That’s why I do it.
Lou: [to Trish] Are all your suitcases just wigs?

Trish: How many reading glasses have you gone through this year?
Lou: That doesn’t count. Reading glasses are designed to be lost.
Lou: That’s a fanny pack.

Lou: Before we head out, let’s look at the agenda. First up, the NFL Experience.
Maura: Wait a minute, “agenda” sounds like work.
Betty: I love a good agenda.

Hot Wings Woman: [referring to the spicy wings contest] I must warn you, it gets really intense. I mean, they got spices that sound like they’re from a horror film.
Betty: Like what?
Hot Wings Woman: California Reaper. Ghost pepper. Teddy Bears Picnic. Now, that one’s the most scary because it sounds like it’s all warm and cuddly, but it’s not. It’s really not.
Betty: Well, I could use a little spice.
Hot Wings Woman: This ain’t no little spice.
Hot Wings Woman: So if you black out, you don’t want me to call your husband?

Betty: An ambulance?

Trish: No. I do.
Guy Fieri: [to Betty] Alright. Remember, embrace the spice. Lean into this. Don’t fight it. It only makes it harder. You go big or you go home.

Guy Fieri: [after Betty wins the spicy wings contest] How did you do this? How do you handle spice at this level?

Maura: Oh, I could eat your brisket all day long, you brute.
