    • Angie: (Sees Max trying to get Ricky out of the house in a trash bag) Max, what are you doing? Max: I'm just taking out this bag of trash. Angie: Oh, well, let me throw in these coffee grounds. Max: No, I'll just take it out like this. George: Are you sure, cause I could throw in this hot bacon grease! Max: Well it's really full. George: Then I'll stomp on it to squash it down! (Ricky runs outside and George chases him) Benny: George how many times do I have to tell you, make sure they're dead before you stuff 'em in a bag!

    • George: (to Max) You're grounded for sneaking Ricky in the house. Angie: He's already grounded for skateboarding in the house. George: All right, then no video games for a month! Angie: We took them away for eavesdropping on the phone calls. George: Allowance? Angie: Took it away when they burned down the garage. George: (to Max) Okay, you leave me no choice. For the rest of the month...you're not allowed to use your hands!

    • (George is scolding Ricky for crashing the car through the fence) George: Do you know you could've killed someone? Ernie: Wow. Hey, your mom sits out here. What if she was in that chair? George: Don't try to cheer me up!

    • (Angie comes down for breakfast) Angie: Wow, this smells great. Ricky: I cook for my mom all the time. Angie: Well, she's lucky to have you for a son. How come you don't cook anything for me, Max? Max: 'Cause I don't have to work for your love. I mean, who's my competition, Carmen? I don't think so.

    • (George is rethinking banning Ricky) George: Look, I want him to stay with us for a while. Angie: Are you crazy? I mean, first the garage, then the fence. He's getting closer to where we sleep, George.
