    • Edward: Hey, how about we go fishing? There are six rainbow trout out there with our names them. Ricky: Yeah, we better get to the river before they fall asleep. Edward: I didn't know that fish sleep. Ricky: Well, they must. You know how tired you get after swimming all day. Edward: Yeah, but I thought I read somewhere that fish don't have any eyelids. How can you sleep without eyelids? Even if you could, how do the other fish know you're asleep? I mean, there you are in the middle of a dream, some bass swims up to you and says "Hey, Herb, you asleep?" Ricky: Don't be silly, Dad. A fish would not sound that way underwater. He'd say, (underwater voice) Hey, Herb, you asleep?

    • Derek: Parents hate giving up their weekends for their kids. The only way I got my dad to go camping with me was by threatening to tell Mom about his girlfriend. Ricky: How did you know your dad had a girlfriend? Derek: I didn't. I took a stab.

    • Edward: Yeah, well, [Colonel W. Morton Strathmore, founder of the Badgers] does have a big nose. Ricky: Dad, a Badger never pokes fun at another persons body parts. Edward: Well, I'm not a Badger, and this guy has the biggest honker I've ever seen in my life. Ricky: Let's just forget the whole thing, okay? Edward: Yeah, sure, fine. I wonder what he uses for a handkerchief. A bedspread?

    • Ricky: Look at the tent. It's all ripped. I think it was an animal. Edward: You mean an animal animal, or a guy who grabs people by the legs and makes a wish. Ricky: It was a bear. Edward: A bear? How do you know it was a bear? Ricky: Well, there's some tracks, and that's some fur and . . . other evidence.

    • Ricky: Dad, I need some real food. Let's go home. Edward: We can't go home. We haven't got your Badger Paws. Ricky: Later for the Badger Paws, Dad. I want a Big Mac.
