    • Jason: Mike, get that rabid animal out of here! Mike: Come on, Dad. Stuart's not rabid. He's... peppy. Jason: Mike, animals that live off human toes are not "peppy."

    • Jason: Well, since when did you believe everything Melissa says she heard? Carol: Well, she does make you wonder sometimes. I mean, she swore she saw Mick Jagger at JCPenney's last week. Jason: Well, they did have that big sale in Home Furnishings.

    • Wendy: I hope Stuart wasn't too much trouble for you. Jason: Stuart, no, no. No, no. Once we started feeding him the neighbors' children, we hardly knew he was here.

    • Jason: Ben? Ben: Yeah, Dad? Jason: What did Mike do to Stuart? Ben: The truth, Dad? Jason: Yeah, Ben. Ben: Mike didn't do anything to Stuart. Bye, Dad. (runs away)

    • Wendy: But this dog changes colors when he gets wet. Stuart would never do that. Jason: Mike... Mike: Uh, you know, there's an article about this in the paper. They're saying pets are changing colors left and right now. It's that acid rain, you know. Jason: Mike, look... Mike: Uh, there's a schnauzer in Cincinnati that turned purple. Jason: Mike! Mike: They say it's perfectly normal.
