->Your quarterback: Tom Brady. I want those toilets shined so bright I can see my face in them, Tommy. I actually believe that Tom Brady goes home to [[TrophyWife Gisele]] and is basically her slave. After spending all week telling shitty receivers what to do and calling out blocking assignments for undrafted linemen, I bet he would like nothing more than to go home, relinquish control of everything, and let his wife kick his ass all over the place. Real ''[[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey Fifty Shades]]''-type shit, with stiletto heels up his ass and everything.

->This is what happens when you watch too much ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', especially any scenes with Charlotte York. Creator/JenniferLoveHewitt has been dating Alex Beh for around 7 months and she tells {{Series/Ellen}} that she’s made it extra easy for him if he ever choose to ask her to be his future ex-fiancee. [=JLove=] doesn’t care if the dude promises to be with her no matter how many [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek shit Lifetime movies]] she does. All she cares about is the ring. [=JLove=], who puts the rat in desperate, already has 3 rings picked out. You know what really makes an awful, awkward moment? Telling your boyfriend that you’ve already picked out three engagement rings and [[ShameIfSomethingHappened he’ll make the biggest mistake of his life if he doesn’t choose one of them.]] Hopefully, the people at Tiffany’s have Alex’s back if he decides to go there. They’ll show him the three stupid rings as well as a diamond noose...
