- After Rob tells a female coworker that Bucky was being "funny" that morning:
Coworker: Aw, you have a funny kitty? What kind of cute stories can you tell?Rob: "Cute" stories? My cat?! Oh....No, no. He's not funny in a "ha ha" kind of way. It's more of a "Good Lord, no!" kind of deal.

Bucky: Okay, Robbo, let's talk deals here. What's it gonna take for you to let me have my cat conference here?Rob: Nothing. I seriously doubt you could even swear on the Good Book enough that nothing disastrous would happen to make me change my mind.*Bucky walks away, returns 15 minutes later, holding a book*Rob: What is that...Richard Scarry's Best Rainy Day Book Ever?Bucky: It's a very good book.
