    • Jasper: (panicky) You do realize that if someone is actually trying to break into the house my dad is never going to leave us alone again. Henry: Relax and focus; listen to what your environment is telling you. Jasper: Okay, my environment is telling me that my dad is going to kill us!

    • Whitney: So let's start with the easy stuff; where were you born? Henry: I am not exactly sure. Whitney: I would have been so disappointed if you had said otherwise.

    • Jasper: Oh you are just annoyed because Whitney is an open book and nobody has a card to your library. Maggie: Just remember that all the popular books get checked out a lot and before you know it, they are soiled.

    • Jasper: (about Henry's clothes) When was the last time you washed them? Henry: Who am I to poison the biosphere with detergent tainted gray water? Jasper: You are a well meaning idealist who will not have any friends until he runs his clothes through a rinse cycle.

    • Jasper: Someone broke into the house last night and stole Sputnik and you're doing the dishes? Henry: I'm working out a plan for finding it. Jasper: You are? Henry: By purifying our surroundings we clarify our minds. Only then will our intentions emerge. Jasper: So you're procrastinating! Henry: For as long as possible.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Henry, Maggie and Jasper scratch the dirt away from the object they discover that it is Sputnik-1 complete with "Sputnik-1" in bold letters on the surface. In reality the word wouldn't have been written in English, it would've been written in Cyrillic as "Спутник-1".
