      • Custer: Quick! Cut to a commercial!

      • Simon: Where was I? Oh, yes. General Custer was being charged by Chief Sitting Bull.
        Alvin: Yeah. It was a horrible battle. Both sides attacked each other! Guns fired! Arrows flew! But in the end, Custer led his troops to victory.
        Simon: Alvin?
        Alvin: Sitting Bull didn't have a chance.
        Simon: Alvin...
        Alvin: Custer went to Hollywood and became a big star.
        Simon: ALVIN!!!
        Alvin: What?!
        Simon: Custer didn't win the battle of Little Bighorn.
        Alvin: He didn't?
        Simon: No. Sitting Bull won. That's why they call it Custer's Last Stand.
        Alvin: Oh. Then I wanna be Sitting Bull.
        Simon: Later, Alvin.

      • Alvin: (after Theodore returns from his test at dismissal) How'd ya do? How'd ya do?!
        Theodore: (hands his test paper to Simon, who looks it over) I don't know. I'm so hungry, I forgot to look.
        Simon: You got an A-! That's great!
        (Alvin and Theodore cheer and hug)
        Theodore: Wait a minute! What's the "-" for?
        Simon: You missed 1 question. The national bird is the bald eagle. Not the stuffed turkey.
        Theodore: Oops!
        Alvin: Who cares!? What's important is that now you get to go to Funland! Let's go!
        All: Yea!

      • Alvin: (about the Pilgrims) They sent out for shakes and fries from McPilgrim's.
        Simon: Alvin, they did no such thing.

      • Alvin: (in his story of Christopher Columbus) But it was no use. Over they went!
        Simon: Alvin...
        Alvin: Plunge-o! Into the drink! Splashville!
        Simon: ALVIN!!! Columbus did not fall off the edge of the earth. He proved it was round, and discovered the new world.
        Alvin: I know. I know. But I was losing Theodore. I had to spice it up. Get it? "Spice it up"?!
        (he laughs)

      • Theodore: (sees a lot of food in the kitchen) Wow! Look at all this food!
        Alvin: Simon, what are you doing?! School starts in an hour! We've gotta help Theodore with his test!
        Simon: I am.
        Theodore: Mmm! I like this kind of studying.
        Alvin: He's trying to pass a history test. Not the Pillsbury Bake-Off!
        Simon: Alvin, if Theodore can remember the Pilgrims because of the food they ate at Thanksgiving, maybe food will work for other events in American history.

      • Alvin: They sent out for shakes and fries from McPilgrim's.

        Alvin's (short and sweet) rendition of the Pilgrim's feast included a Pilgrim parody of the world's most popular fast-food chain, McDonald's.
