The Mindy Project: Morgan’s 10 Best Quotes

Published on April 11, 2016.

On every show there’s always that one character who completely wins over the audience and steals the show. When it comes to The Mindy Project, this person is most definitely Morgan Tookers. He’s like a Phoebe from Friends with his quirky humor and odd tendencies that should make him weird, but instead make him all the more lovable. In the beginning of the series, Morgan, who is played by comedian Ike Barinholtz, is hired on as one of the nurses for the medical practice and, since episode one, he’s brought the best comical relief to the show. He loves to meddle in his co-workers relationships, believe’s Mindy is his queen and knows no boundaries, and loves to give out advice from his days in prison! The Mindy Project has been on the air for four seasons (with the second half starting on April 12) giving ample time for Morgan to throw out some great quotes. It’s hard to narrow down the list, but here’s a quick overview of his 10 best quotes from the first two seasons of the show:

Morgan: “Okay Dr L., as a hot guy with a fancy job, I think I have some insight here. Number two sexist female organ? The butt. Number one sexiest female organ? The brain. The ba-donk-a-donk and the ba-think-a-think.” (Season 1, Episode 4)
