    from Arrested Development (unknown episode, IMdb doesn’t list which episodes quotes came from..):
    Narrator (Ron Howard): Michael was having brunch with Sally Sitwell at a restaurant called Skip Church’s Bistro. In addition to brunch, the restaurant was known for an item on the menu called the “Skip’s Scramble,” an omelet that contained everything on the menu. Do not order the Skip’s Scramble.

    quote from P&R [2.22] this is a long one but I love it:
    Leslie: [telling Mark how he should propose to Ann] Horseback. You should ask her on horseback.
    Mark: What?
    Leslie: No. You should ask her in a hot air balloon. No. She should be on a hot air balloon and you should ride up on horseback. Or, she’s in the balloon…you ride up on horseback…you point to the sky. Up there, sky writing: “Marry me, Ann” –
    Mark: I think I can figure out the right way to ask her.
    Leslie: How you ask someone to marry you is a very big deal. I mean, they have to repeat that story for the rest of their lives.
    Mark: So you think I should do it though?
    Leslie: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely. Can you get five eagles? No, get ten eagles.
    Mark: Leslie…
    Leslie: No, you’re right. It’s your life. Get as many eagles as you want.
