But in honor of Father's Day, Watch rounds up some of the best wisecracks from sitcom patriarchs, including Dave (Max Greenfield) and Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) from The Neighborhood, George Sr. (Lance Barber) from Young Sheldon, Art (Dean Norris) from United States of Al, Ben (Omar Miller) and Forrest (Rob Corddry) from The Unicorn, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) from Schitt's Creek, and Julius (Terry Crews) from Everybody Hates Chris.
