    • Dad: (Lifting box off the cake) And here it is!
      Arthur: (Uncovering his eyes) W-what is it?
      Dad: Honey cake in the shape of the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Galileo...Italy...get it?

      Arthur: Oh brother.

    • D.W.: What's wrong?
      Arthur: Dad got behind on his work doing my cakes and now Mr. Crosswire's mad. Dad might lose his business.
      D.W.: Lose his business? We'll have no money! We'll lose our house and end up on the street!

      D.W.: We'll have almost no money! Our furniture will end up on the street!
      Arthur: What will I do? I need these desserts!
      D.W.: Throw it away! Your crazy demands will destroy us!

      Mr. Read: If you want a cake for your school, D.W., I'll make you one. (D.W. claps a bit.)
      Mr. Read: I'm a hit!

    • Arthur: I mean, you guys don't really think those things are cool... do you?
      Muffy: Come on Buster, he just doesn't get it.

      Arthur: Huh?
