All they do is keep trying to make you sit and walk and heel. Beethoven: Well, Ted seems to like it. Ginger: Go figure!

    • Sparky: Hey Beethoven, where ya been? Beethoven: Driving with George and Ryce. Man, I love riding in the car! It's gotta be the coolest thing I've ever done! Sparky: Yeah, well, you get excited when a new bird lands in your yard. Beethoven: What's your point?

Beethoven: Yeah, I guess I am, aren't I?
