      • Muffy: (pointing to Arthur arriving) Look out! It's...
        Arthur: Hold it. You're right. I'm not funny. I don't have to be a clown. Not everybody has to be funny. (The other kids hum along to "Battle Hymn of the Republic") If everyone was as funny as the people on TV, there'd be no reason to watch TV. And if nobody watched TV, all the people who make the shows would have no jobs and all the companies that advertised would go out of business. So by not being funny, I'm saving the jobs of thousands and thousands of people and their families. (starts leaving)
        Fern: Wow. I hope someday I can be important as Arthur.

      • Binky: (sees the Brain in the pool) Arthur, Muffy's party will be over by the time he gets up to his neck.
        Brain: Up to my neck?! (marches angrily outta the pool) No way am I goin' that far! In fact, I'm outta here!

      • Muffy: I don't like snobby people. By the way, Arthur, who picked out your bathing suit? It's so tacky.
