“Chrisley Knows Best” plot lines sound like ideas found plucked from any random sitcom from the 1990s.
This is how USA described the latest dubbed “Rules of Engagement”:
When Todd learns that Savannah has a new boyfriend, who she’s intentionally keeping away from meeting her nosy family, Todd goes to extreme lengths to try to get a glimpse of this new guy, and doesn’t like what he sees.
The dude is named Blaire Hanks, a country singer from Nashville. And they appear to be still dating.
Here are some choice quotes from the episode:
“If it’s not me, Chase and Grayson, there doesn’t need to be another boy in her life and if so, I need to know who he is.”- Todd
“I’ve gone 17 years without Savannah having boy as a friend and I can go 17 more.” – Todd
“I am out of her business! I’m in Blaire’s business.” – Todd, doing a background check on Blaire
“The last time I let up, one eloped and one got someone pregnant. No freedom for the inmates at the Chrisley institution.” – Chase, referencing Lindsie and Kyle
1980s TV reference
“You go ahead, Matlock,” – Julie, leaving Todd to work the background check
“Now I know why she likes this guy. He looks like me!” – Todd, after meeting Blaire
Channeling his dad
“He has a penis and he’s friendly. How friendly is he?” Chase to Savannah
“I think Todd needs a Xanax.” – Chase, as Blaire talks about hanging out at bars and writing songs
“I have watched every episode of ‘Shark Tank’ and I think we have what it takes to make a killer business.” – Chase
“I don’t know what monetary means.” – Chase
Random comment that may or may not make sense
“Can’t get the heathen out of them.” – Todd, as he chases Savannah out of the door
“My dad’s crazy paranoid.” – Savannah to boyfriend Blaire as he pulls out of the driveway while Todd snaps pictures.
Chase’s latest idea: a golf cart taxi service for college kids: “I want to be the next Bill Gates.”
“I’m glad Chase hasn’t asked me to invest in a whore house. That might be more profitable than some of his siblings’ ventures.” – Todd
“I need to brush up on my ROIs and KTAs – Kiss Todd’s A**.” – Chase
“Do not invest your time in anything that is not going to bear fruit.” – Chase to Savannah
