  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (10)

    • Jerry: Question number 1. What kind of cloud should you fly into? (stops Alex answering) Heh, trick question; none of them. Because it's very easy to become confused in a cloud. Which way's up? Which way's down? I don't know. Crash! Alex: What'd you crash into in a cloud? Jerry: A confused wizard on a carpet going the other way.

    • Theresa: (telling Max he can't keep Justin's pig head) I'm sorry honey, but it's terrible and cruel what they do to those animals! Plus, when I was in Justin's room, that thing was checking me out.

    • Justin: (about Jerry) He just said no to Daddy's Little Girl! Max: Maybe it's backwards day. Hey Dad, can I have a cellphone? Jerry: What? No! Justin: (to Max) It's not that day.

    • Alex: I'm gonna do something nice for you now. Justin: What? Alex: Don't use your toothpaste tomorrow morning. Justin: Why? Alex: It's not toothpaste.

    • Alex: During my lesson, Dad got all tense and frustrated like he does when he's around you and your dolls. Justin: Action figures. Collectibles. In their original packaging.
