    • Big Pete voice-over: He had asked for plates that spelled out his title a little better, but "King O Frod" was the best our state could do.

    • Big Pete voice-over: He was the king-- the King of the Road. He had earned his crown over the years by being the best on the road in the three major dad-driving categories: 1) Never asking for directions-- no matter what. 2) Roof stack packing, and three, the true measure of dad greatness: Making "good time" on the road.

    • Big Pete voice-over: Every year, our parents decide that it's time for our family to really learn what it means to be a family. If we were Eskimos, we could all just go out and harpoon a whale together. But since we're Wrigleys, we have to do it the hard way and take a family trip. It's a tribal ritual that mean a lot to our dad. Most of the time, he was just an ordinary dad with ordinary-dad powers. But for two weeks during the summer, during our annual trip to the Hoover Dam, he was something special.

    • Big Pete: We're Wrigleys, Dad. We have to do this the Wrigley way.

    • Little Pete: We're mutants!
