  • Quotes

    • Beakman: Heat and cold are two things we bump into everyday.
      Lester: I'd like to bump into something cold right now.

    • Beakman: Exellant, Josie! No wonder she's heir to the Beakman throne.
      Lester: Yeah, she also heir to the Beakman air conditioner!

    • Beakman: There's been alot of strange cures for diseases. One of my favorites was what they did centuries ago. They would put a live frog in your throat to cure whooping cough.
      Lester: They don't do it anymore?
      Beakman: Of course not, Lester - that would make you croak.

    • Josie: That's a whole lot of webs, Jack.
      Lester: Kid's been watching a lot of Dragnet lately.

    • Beakman: Lester, what would you say if I said that yould not blow that little wad of paper into the bottle.
      Lester: Huh, I'd say your check would only be accepted with two valid forms of ID.

    • Lester: Would you like to hear about the Lester Challenge?
      Beakman: Yeah, sure, what is it?
      Lester: You have to be humiliated week after week on nation-wide television.

    • Lester: Hey, Beakman, what's shaking, buddy?
      Beakman: Lester, I'm experimenting with a very dangerous concoction here. One wrong move and yours truly here will be truly out of this world.

    • Beakman: Let's all take a closer look at the bogus scope!
      Lester: Not as exciting as "To the Bat-poles" but it will do around here.

    • Beakman: That oil keeps your face soft and supple.
      Lester: It keeps my fur shiny and manageable.

    • Beakman: The bacteria multiply and flourish and eventually cause inflammation.
      Lester: That's more inflammation than I needed to know.

    • Lester: If I was to pop this puppy, it would be a big explosion all over the place, and if there's one thing we don't need more of around here, it's more explosions.

    • Don: (watching explosion) Uh-oh!
      Herb: This could be the end of Lester.
      Don: I can't bear to look, Herb!
      Herb: Me neither, Don!
      Don: I hope they show a replay.
      Herb: Oooo, in super slo-mo.
      Don: Oooo, let's tape it.

    • Beakman: Love the underwear.
      Lester: Really, you don't think the hearts are too much?
      Lester: No, they're perfect.

    • Josie: What's your body's largest organ? Beakman will be right back with an organ recital.

    • Josie: Soo-weey! It's time to kick-start your cortex. Here he is... The merchant of the mentality, the kaiser of chemistry, the Pete Barbutti of the heavy duty... The one, The only, the Beakman!
      Beakman: You gun 'em, I'll sun 'em, let's Cha-cha!
