My 10 favorite quotes and moments from "Let's Stay Together" -- name yours in the comments!
10. "The third generation...snowboards and takes improv classes." --Jack

9. "When I was in pageants, my mother told me there's only three things standing between you and winning. Your breasts and wanting it bad enough." --Jenna, jonesing for Vagitrax

8. "Jackie D! I had dinner with Don Imus last night and he told the following joke..." --Tracy to Jack as Regina listened in, horrified, over the phone

7. "I was too busy trying to remember the name of the black kid on Community" --Jack, who shares a liquor locker at the opera with Monty Appleseed (Fun fact: Community's "Don-ALD Glover" used to write for 30 Rock and appeared in two episodes.)

6. Jack and Tracy's utter disbelief that Law & Order had been canceled. It was a tentpole. A tentpole!

5. The tail end of Regina's final stream-of-consciousness preacher/politician plea: "WHO. WANTS. PIZZA?"

4. "I wish you weren't such a Houston Foreclosure of a human being." --School boat graduate Jenna, who had another thing coming if she thought she was going to Sizzler that night, to Kenneth

3. "Thank you, Dr. Chang." --Jack to Regina after telling her he saw neither race nor gender

2. John Amos as the dad with a talking dog on Let's Stay Together, the new sitcom from Dot Com Productions

1. "Traveling bard." / "Radiation canary." --Lemon, then Jack, on how society would even use her in a post-apocalyptic world
