Meet the Parents () - Soundtracks - IMDb
Meet The Parents is a Kafka Komedy that is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. would result in Pamela Martha Focker (sounds like motherf*cker people). Meet the Parents () SoundTracks on IMDb: Memorable quotes and exchanges from movies, TV series and more. It sounds promising. Meet the Parents is a film with lots of funny lines and actors doing an impeccable technical job, but it is somehow less.
Jack has one near the end of the first two films, yet continues to give Greg hell in the sequels. Jack's Fatal Flaw — he would rather believe Greg and his parents, and everybody else who so much as saw his girls is actively and maliciously trying to do something and put him through utter hell to force him to tell the truth than accept that his son-in-law is just a Butt-Monkey.
The "circle of trust" system is also supposed to allow for an open inter-family relationship, but is becomes apparent long before Pam and Dina call B. Little Jack repeating the word "asshole". Jack always says that Greg's job is "male nurse" rather than just "nurse".
Even though Jack is one of the best examples of a Knight Templar Parent, his favorite song is the one that exemplifies childlike innocence: Pam's entire family, in fact, except Dina and Pam herself.
Even his cat is a Jerkass. The redneck cop in the second movie. The Lawful Stupid airline employees that Greg had to put up with in the first film. Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jack - he clearly loves his daughter and wants only the best for her, but his extreme Papa Wolf personality makes it difficult for her to have any successful relationships.
Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: That said, he does push it with how much he tortures and refuses to reason with Greg and his family. The "Circle Of Trust" and control-freak tendencies make it clear he's pretty difficult to live with. All 3 movies revel in being this. In the third movie, Andi Garcia drunkenly forces herself onto Greg while at his house, despite knowing that he's married and he objects. She never gets her comeuppance for it; she doesn't even get fired, despite acting unprofessional for the entire movie.
Jack in the first film never faces any real consequence for bullying Greg. The second film is better about this. You could say the two heart attacks in the third film are Jack's karma. He would at least have to learn to keep his composure and temper under control from that point onward, or risk a third, and likely fatal, heart attack.
Denny, Pam's pothead brother, never gets any comeuppance for framing Greg for smoking marijuana in the first film. In the second however, Dina mentions that he was sent to military school, so it seems that karma caught up with him off-screen. Jack, who dotes on Jinx like crazy. The "kindhearted" part is extremely debatable to say the least, though.
This describes Jack Byrnes to a T. The Koshers - er, Fockers, oh damn. The airline employees, particularly the one who makes Greg wait until his row gets called for boarding The redneck cop in the second film. He is following the standard list of what to do if an officer pulls someone over and the driver turns hostile—the problem being that this means he won't listen to what Jack, Greg or Bernie have to say when they try to explain themselves and pretty much brutalizes them when they turn "uncooperative" which is when they try to insist and raise their voices, otherwise remaining peaceful.
Let Her Grow Up, Dear: Pam's mom is definitely more supportive of her relationship with Gaylord than Jack ever will be. This scene was heavily used to promote the film. Jack places his thumbs on Greg's wrists as an impromptu lie detector in their last major scene.
Which may border on to research failure as using your thumbs to take a person's pulse is not correct; your thumb has its own pulse and thus may give a false reading. Some have speculated that Jack was counting on Greg not knowing that, and getting distracted from hiding other signs that he's lying.
See Ethnic Menial Labor above. The Maiden Name Debate: In the second movie, Pam confirms that she will indeed take Greg's name, she doesn't care how embarassing it may sound. Inverted; although Greg scored top marks in medical school, he chose to be a nurse so he could spend more time with patients. Jack and the rest of the Byrnes family which include several doctors themselves grill him on why he just didn't become a doctor and even refuse to believe he passed his MCAT with top marks.
One of the plot points of the third film. The headmistress of the school in the third film mistakes Greg and Jack for being married. Happens to Greg when he gets kicked off an airplane in the first movie.
Towards the end of the third film. Greg tries to present a peace offering to Jack, who looks like he's about ready to accept, until he punches Greg in the face.
Jessica Alba shows a lot in Little Fockers. This is Murphy's Law: Greg by the third movie, able to stand up for himself against Jack's usual misunderstandings. Dina's the only member of Pam's family who is remotely nice to Greg. Overly Long Gag - see Punny Name below.
Meet the Parents
When he's finally called out on his crap, Pam points out that every man she's ever dated was highly nervous when they were around her after meeting him. Jack to a disturbing degree. Jack later takes the RV to Isabel's fifteen-year-old son, Jorge Ray Santiagoto fix the toilet, but is disturbed by Jorge's striking resemblance to Greg and begins to suspect he may be Greg's son with Isabel.
Growing envious of Bernie and Roz's active sex life, Dina consults Roz on sex tips in order to seduce Jack, but none of them work.

Things eventually come to a crunch when Greg is left alone to babysit Little Jack, whom Jack has been raising via the Ferber method. Despite Jack's instructions to leave Little Jack to self-soothe, Greg cannot bear to listen to Little Jack's cries and tends to the boy to cheer him up, turning the television on to Sesame Streetacting funny and inadvertently teaching Little Jack to say "asshole".
A brief phone call from Roz is long enough for Little Jack to wander out of his pen after Jinx opens it by accidentput on Scarface and glue his hands to a rum bottle. After a furious argument with the Fockers and his own family though amends are quickly madeJack reverts to his old ways and sends Greg and Jorge's hair samples for a DNA test, while inviting Jorge to the Focker's planned engagement party in hopes of getting Greg to admit he is Jorge's father.
At the engagement party, Jack introduces Greg to Jorge, and later when Greg refuses to admit Jorge is his son, Jack injects him with a truth serum to make him talk. On stage, Greg blurts out that Pam is pregnant and that Jorge is indeed his son in a comically Darth Vader -esque manner before finally passing out.
When the others realize Jack's actions the next day, another argument ensues and Dina admits that they all knew Pam was pregnant and deliberately did not tell him. Shocked and hurt by this, Jack leaves with his grandson. Bernie and Greg give pursuit, but are tasered and arrested by a corrupt deputy sheriff, LeFlore Tim Blake Nelsonfor speeding. Jack returns to defend them after being informed Greg is not Jorge's father his real father turns out to be a baseball player who also resembles Gregbut the overzealous LeFlore tasers and arrests him as well.
In their cell, Greg, Jack and Bernie make up and are released by the local judge, Ira Shelley Bermanwho is a student of Roz and close friend of the Focker family. During the credits, Jack watches hidden baby-cam footage of the Fockers giving attention to Little Jack over Jack's previous objections: Roz gives Little Jack chocolate, Bernie advises him to use his crying to disagree with everything Jack says, and Greg pretends to drunkenly tell Little Jack to keep it a secret that he left to smoke pot, not answer the phone, when he left Little Jack unattended which resulted in Jack gluing his hands to a rum bottle and that Pam is not really pregnant and only said it so that Jack would let them get married.
Greg then pretends to only just discover the camera but then after making mocking gestures at it, you realize that Greg knew about it all along and none of the things he said before were true. Little Fockers [ edit ] Main article: Little Fockers Gaylord "Greg" Focker Stiller is preparing to celebrate his twins' fifth birthday party. Recently, Jack has been diagnosed with a heart condition and become embittered by his daughter Debbie's divorce from her husband, Bob whose marriage was the social event in Meet the Parents and how Jack was introduced to Gregfor cheating on her with a nurse.
Jack's plan was originally to name Bob as his successor of the Byrnes family, but decides to pass the role to Greg, naming him "The Godfocker". Despite Greg begrudgingly accepting the role, Jack begins to suspect Greg of infidelity when he sees him with a drug rep, Andi Garcia Albawho openly flirts with him, and the presence of Sustengo erection pills in Greg's house, which prompts Jack to think Greg is no longer sexually attracted to his wife, Pam Polo.Meet the Parents (2/11) Best Movie Quote - Puff the Magic Dragon (2000)
Furthermore, Jack starts to doubt Greg's ability to provide for his family when he appears reluctant to send his children to a private school. During a medical conference promoting Sustengo, Greg meets Bob at a bar.
Bob tells Greg of Jack's original intention to name him as successor, "The Bobfather", and expresses relief and happiness at leaving Jack's family, which makes Greg slightly uncomfortable. Eventually, following a row at a clinic, Greg runs away from home to his and Pam's unfinished new house, where he is paid a visit by Andi, who tries to cheer him up with takeout and wine, but Andi soon becomes so drunk that she makes an aggressive sexual pass at Greg.
While looking for Greg to apologise and bring him home, Jack pulls up to the house and sees, through the window, what he believes to be Greg and Andi having sex while Greg is trying to rebuff Andi's advances. Disgusted, Jack merely leaves, but tells Dina and Pam that he was unable to find Greg. At the twins' birthday party, Greg's parents, Bernie Hoffman and Roz Streisand rejoin the family, but Jack, enraged at Greg's apparent infidelity, engages Greg in a physical fight, despite Greg insisting that Andi was drunk and he was rebuffing her.
The fight culminates with Jack having a heart attack and collapsing. As he is taken away by paramedics, Jack quietly admits that he now believes Greg after feeling his carotid artery, which remained stable while Greg was claiming his innocence.
Four months later on Christmas Day, Greg and Pam's parents come to spend Christmas with them in their new house.
