    Sorry, wives of the world.

    1. "Of course I was listening."

    I was not listening and you totally caught me.

    2. "That wasn't me."

    First Look Home Ent. / Via

    I totally just farted. Sorry.

    3. "What do you want to do now?"


    Please say sex, please say sex, please say sex...

    4. "Yes, I'm fine."

    Warner Bros. / Via

    I'm not in a bad mood, but if you keep asking if I am I will be soon.

    5. "Sure, I'd love to join you on a diet."

    You owe me one.

    7. "Are you tired?"

    9. "Don't worry, I'll deal with the spider."

    Spiders terrify me, but it is my husbandly duty to take care of things like this so here goes nothing.

    10. "Yes, that looks great on you."

    You looked great a half an hour ago. Can we please go to dinner now?

    I'm not stupid enough to fall for this trick.

    12. "I actually don't like strip clubs."

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    Really, I don't. But you know… boobs.

    13. "Here, let me Google that for you."

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    I forgot to clear my browser history.

    14. "Those towels will look perfect in the bathroom."

    NBC / Via

    I couldn't care less what the bathroom towels look like.

    15. "If that's what you wanna do."

    BBC / Via

    You're going to get your way anyway so why bother?

    16. "What do you want to do for our anniversary?"

    18. Real Housewives again?


    I love this show.

    19. "I don't care where we eat."

    NBC / Via

    I do care but want you to decide because I am an indecisive man-child.

    20. "I'll take out the trash in a minute."

    Colombia Pictures / Via

    That will be more like an hour, TBH. And only because you will remind me again.

    21. "Am I getting fat?"

    NBC / Via

    I am being vulnerable right now and can use some honest criticism.

    22. "Wow, you look really stunning right now."

    So... sex?

    23. "I love you."
