Do I think you're a psycho?

Oh, you like my little gift? I can't hear you. Oh, you don't know shit about flowers. You want me to what? You have another question?
I got one question for you. It's can you deal with that!? Greg, how come you don't like cats? I don't not like cats.
I-I just-- I just prefer dogs. I mean, I'm just more of a dog kind of, you know--Come home, wagging their little tails, happy to see you kind of-- Jack: You need that assurance? You prefer an emotionally shallow animal? You see, Greg, when you yell at a dog, his tail will go between his legs and cover his genitals, his ears will go down.
A dog is very easy to break, but cats make you work for their affection. They don't sell out the way dogs do. Oh, honey, why don't you read Greg your poem? Oh, no, he doesn't want to hear that. You see, when Jack had to retire That's a bunch of malarky. The doctor thought it would be therapeutic if he Honey, you wrote the most beautiful poem about your mother.
Please, we really wanna hear it. It's a work in progress. I'm still not happy with it.Meet the Parents
As soon as it's ready, then I am going to glaze it onto a plate You gave me life, you gave me milk, you gave me courage.
Your name was Angela, the angel from heaven, but you were also an angel of God, and He needed you too. Selfishly I tried to keep you here But I couldn't save you, and I shall see your face It always gets me. So-So--So much love, yet also so much information. You must've had vegetables fresher than that, growing up on a farm, Greg. Dad, uh, Greg grew up in Detroit. He told me he grew up on a farm. Do they have many farms in Detroit? No, Dina, no, not a lot. 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.

Meet the Parents quotes
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.

This is Murphy's Law: Greg by the third movie, able to stand up for himself against Jack's usual misunderstandings.
Meet The Fockers Script - transcript from the screenplay and/or Ben Stiller movie
Dina's the only member of Pam's family who is remotely nice to Greg. Overly Long Gag - see Punny Name below. 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.
Bernie Focker when he finds out that Jack drugged Greg with truth serum. Greg's suitcase gets lost in-flight. A suitcase is found matching the description and delivered to him at the parents of his girlfriend.
He attempts to open it but can't and leaves for the day, leaving his prospective father-in-law alone at the house. Being former CIA he opens it easily and finds it full of fetish and bondage gear and sex toys.
It doesn't help that earlier on, Greg mentioned having "something in his suitcase that he wouldn't feel right asking Pam to wear without her father's approval".
