  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (10)

    • Cory: Your uncle's insane. Shawn: It was an option, but he never pleaded that way. Cory: Look, I just think the tape would be better if we got the family to, you know, talk a little more. Uncle Mike: Hey. You want a Hunter to talk? Put 'em in a situation where they're not afraid to talk. (scene switches to Cory behind the camera) Cory: Action! (the Hunter family is lined up in the dark using voice disguisers) Hunter Family: Happy birthday, Chet, from all the Hunters here at this undisclosed location. Cory: Okay. I'm, I'm gonna turn the camera off, all right? I'm not going for my pocket.

    • Shawn: Well, family's really important to the Hunters. You know, my dad always said, "Where there's family, there's place to hide."

    • Alan: How much are they gonna charge you to appraise this stuff? Eric: Sixty dollars. Yeah, but you see I already had seventy in my wallet so it looks like I've already made 10 bucks.

    • Mr. Feeny: That junky, old lamp is worth over 800 dollars. Eric: With out a light bulb? Pshaw.

    • Eric: Four thousand dollars! I'm a millionaire! I'm a millionaire!

    • Shawn: It'd be like Court TV without the Court. Court TV is a television network that deals with crimes. Today it is known as truTV.
