    Wendy (looks at gorgeous pregnant woman): "Look at her, she's wearing six-inch heels..."
    Janice: "She's like a magical pregnancy unicorn."

    Oh, Mythical Pregnancy Unicorn, why must you torture normal pregnant women everywhere? There's always one: that incredible pregnant woman who manages to gain very little weight and look positively stunning (the 'glow') for nine months. Skyler (Brooklyn Decker) is such a creature. She'll sneeze during labor and push that little baby right out without any issues whatsoever, and then she'll immediately strap on her Louboutins and go about her merry way.

    Craig: "I caught him playing in the dryer yesterday."
    Patel: "I picked up the wrong baby from daycare."

    Welcome to the Dudes Group, Alex. First rule: No judging. These guys are serious about this rule, too. They take pride in their child care skills as fathers, but they make mistakes. Those mistakes? They stay in Dudes Group. Forever.
