    • Al: This is bad. Can't eat, can't sleep, can't bury the wife in the back yard.

    • Kelly: (to Vinnie) I'm not home! Vinnie Verducci: Then is it okay if I wait? Bud: (to Peggy) Mom, if my mixed up theory at the hospital is correct, I'd say we just found Kelly's natural brother.

    • Peggy: Al, the suspense is boring us. Tell us what he said. Al: He said "The colors. The colors. Has anybody seen my good friend John?" Then he lit up a banana and then he hung up.

    • Al: I got Rick Cool himself. Bud: Oh, Rick Cool, huh? Did Bobby "23 Skiddoo" quit?

    • Al: All I wanted was a stinkin' .45! The record or the gun... heck, at this point, I'd settle for the malt liquor!
