  • QUOTES (7)

    • Muffy: And the Disgusting Person of the Year award goes to... (reads envelope) "Barfine Fren--"!
      (everyone gasps and stares at Francine, and put on doctor masks)
      Muffy: Sorry, "Barfine". But we've gotta think of our health!
      (everyone laughs)

    • Francine: I just hope that all the kids at school don't call me Barfine.

    • Muffy: It's a pity we don't hang out more. I've admired you since we were little kids.
      Sue Ellen: I haven't even been here a year, Muffy. You didn't know me when I was a little kid.

    • Muffy: (to Sue Ellen) Your protest isn't going to work anyway. Do you really think a couple kids are going to change the mind of a multi-million dollar corporation, especially when two of them are Buster and Binky?!

    • Sue Ellen: Can we just get back to marching, please?!

    • Sue Ellen: (she flicks one of her hair scrunchies like a rubber band) Hello?! Is anybody listening? This is the Sugar Bowl we're talking about. You know, the place where we hang out every single day.

    • Buster: I think we've just entered the fourth dimension.

    • Television Ad: The TV ad refers to the restaurant being at the Millcreek Mall
      This is the name of the mall in Erie, PA--one of several references to Erie and to the Millcreek Mall. Author Marc Brown grew up in Millcreek, PA, outside Erie. But the show is set in Elwood City, almost 2 hours south, near Pittsburgh
