    • (in the background, Hayley streaks naked across the front lawn)
      Klaus: Say it! You have to say it!
      Hayley: Help! Raccoons took my penis!

    • (we see the closed door to the attic and hear Stan and Roger on other side of the door)
      Roger: Oh, hi, Stan. Thank goodness you're here. This door is stuck. Can you get it for me?
      Roger: Okay - it's almost open. Now I'll throw you.
      Roger: Oh, me again? Okay...
      (slam, slam)

    • Steve: (standing on chimney, dancing) Hey, look! I've been up here background dancing to your conversation the entire time. And you didn't even notice. I am awesome! (does a twirl and falls down the chimney) Aaaaaaaah...

    • Stan: My sanctuary is ruined! You are the most selfish thing I have ever met.
      Roger: What are you talking about? I offered you a fig! I offered him a fig, Francine.
      Francine: Is that true, Stan? Did he offer you a fig? Because that sounds like the opposite of selfish. That sounds nutritious.
      Stan: All you ever do is defend him.
      Francine: Oh, I do not!
      Stan: Please, you're always doing it.
      Roger: (running to hide behind Francine, dressed as Picasso) Aaaaaa!
      Stan: Roger painted me in my sleep!
      Roger: My canvas is life. I'm an artist.
      Francine: Leave him alone, honey, he's an artist.
      Roger: (running to hide behind Francine) Aaaaaa!
      Stan: Roger stuck a syringe in my chest!
      Roger: I was playing Pulp Fiction. The bitch was OD'ing on me and I gave her a shot in the heart.
      Francine: Leave him alone, Stan. He thought you were an OD'ing bitch.
      Roger: (running to hide behind Francine, dressed as an Indian) Aaaaaa!
      Stan: He took my hair!
      Roger: He took my land!
      Francine: Leave him alone, honey. You took his land!

    • (Steve dancing in kitchen, grunting, gyrating, and moon walking)
      Stan: Steve, it's a beautiful afternoon. Shouldn't you be outside with your friends, turning my tool shed into Mordor, or Endor, or something heartbreaking.
      Steve: I've given up that dorky pastime and decided to follow my true passion: backup dancing! Look! I'm good! But I don't pull focus… Work it, dad. You're the star! Thrust it! Ungh! Thrust it! Ungh! Then hide the reveal.
      Stan: We really should've spaced out your vaccinations!

    • Stan: You destroyed my study!
      Roger: You barged into my sauna! You know how stressful that is? I just unclenched my anus.

    • Hayley: Hey, Klaus, check it out. My dad is gonna hit the roof!
      Klaus: Oh, a temporary henna tattoo. How daring. What's next, you gonna bake cookies at 351 degrees?
      Hayley: Like you're so daring. You won't even go into the deep end of your own bowl.
      Klaus: Oh, really? Maybe we should settle this with a game of Truth or Dare.
      Hayley: How about Dare or Dare?
      Klaus: How about I punch you in the bleeping face?! See what I did there? I bleeped myself. I took the joy away from the censors. Yeah, I'll play your game of dares, little girl. I'm a bleeping force to be reckoned with! Okay, I'll go first. I dare you to kiss me.

    • Roger: (crying) No! Don't go! I'll do anything!
      Francine: Are you sure? You're really ready?
      Roger: Yes, yes. I'm ready to quit drinking.
      Francine: That's not what this is about.
      Roger: Oh, thank God.

    • Roger: Why, you have fantastic posture. A truly presidential carriage.
      Stan: Beat it, kiss ass.
      Francine: Stan!
      Stan: I'm sorry, but it's gonna take more than a few accurate observations about my stunning handsomeness to convince me that Roger's changed.

    • The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars
      When Steve is dancing Stan says that he should be outside turning his tool shed into Mordor or Endor, a reference to the land of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings, and the forest moon of Endor, home of the Ewoks from the Star Wars saga.

    • E.T.
      The plant dying/thriving along with Roger is a reference to the movie E.T. In the movie, E.T. was able to keep the plant alive. When he was resuscitated, the dying plant came back to life.
