    • Sid: I can't stand it. Gill is more invisible around here than I am.

    • (Cleofatra feels sorry for Frankentyke since he is sitting by himself) Cleofatra: Hey Frankentyke, want to sit with us? You're looking a little down in the dumps. Frankentyke: Oh yeah. Well, you look like a dump yourself, baggage brain. Get lost. Cleofatra: Ooh! Last time I try to be nice to that anvil head!

    • Frankentyke: What a day. First I get trashed by a wave and then I get trashed by my best friend.

    • Gill: (reads sign) Warning. No swimming. Sharks, jellyfish, rip tides, primo conditions little dude. Let's hit the waves. Frankentyke: All right! I'm finally going to learn how to surf, man. (a wave crashes onto him and his board is smashed onto his head) Gill: Whoa. You just scored your first lesson, little dude. It's called "gettin' trashed." Frankentyke: (knocks junk out of his ears) It's to be avoided, right?

    • Schneider: I'll meet you at the amusement park later. You take care of the kids. Boneyard: Who's going to take care of me?

    • Blanche: Ooh, a love letter. I could just die. J.P. Ghastly: Don't be redundant, Blanche.

    • Big Daddy: Hey, there's that recipe book, right next to that glove. (the glove grabs Big Daddy's hand when he gets the book) Sid: Got you babe. Caught you red handed, man. Big Daddy: What? Who said that? Sid: (talking like Colombo) It's me sir, Lt. Sid. I'm invisible and you're busted.

    • (Frankentyke is shooting spitballs at Reggie's head) Reggie: (howls) Quit that, Frankentyke! Frankentyke: No way, Reggie. Your egghead is too big a target, man.
