  • Quotes

    • (Chet is having a 'conversation' with the mannequin Nadine he has just been reunited with. The family watches)
      Tina: Chet's a really good listener.
      Linda: That's important to a woman.
      Bob: Lin, she's a mannequin.
      Gene: Who won't shut up, apparently.

    • Linda: It's not here yet, but I want to go on record and say this is the best Christmas ever! Whoah!
      Bob: I know; we might actually be able to afford to buy the kids something nice. Maybe I can sneak out later while you cover for me.
      Linda: Yeah, I'll tell the kids you're dropping off a present for your mistress. Hehe, as if!

    • (Bob is skeptical of Chet's claims)
      Chet: Well then, if I wasn't a mannequin, how come I don't know how to use a computer? Explain that, Bob.

    • Bob: (loud whispering) Chet's crazy, Lin. Do you think he'll kill us before or after Christmas?
      Linda: (loud whispering) I don't think he will - he said he's not a murder mannequin.
      Chet: You two really need to work on your whispering.

    • Chet: I used to be a mannequin. You don't need to be afraid of me; I'm not one of those 'murder mannequins' or 'satanic mannequins'.

    • (Chet has just told the family that he used to be a mannequin)
      Tina: I get it; one day you became anatomically correct. (beat) I just went through that.

    • Bob: I haven't talked to Uncle Ernie in years.
      Gene: 'Talking to Uncle Ernie' would be a great code for going to poop.
      Bob: Gene, he just died.
      Gene: It's a fitting tribute!

    • Chet: The name's Chet; short for 'Chester', long for ...'/ch/'.

    • (Chet has been frozen in the window all day)
      Linda: Okay, Chet, we're closed. You can move now.

      Chet: (animating) Whoo! I am full of lactic acid - and ideas for tomorrow's window.

    • (Chet is part of a display in Bob's window)
      Louise: It's been 2 hours and he still hasn't moved! UGH!
      Gene: I'm tired of pantsing him; it's like pantsing a stone.
      Tina: Or a grandpa.

    • (going to the storage unit they've just inherited)
      Tina: I still have a good feeling about this.
      Linda: There could be an old car in there! Or a whole bunch of fur coats.
      Gene: I'm going to throw paint on them!

    • Linda: (to Bob) Oh, I'm so mad I could stomp!

      Gene: (from another room) Do it, mom! Do the stomping dance!

      Linda: (clenches fists, turns and leaves, stomping her foot each time she speaks) Don't! Bother! Bringing! The! Mistletoe! To! Bed! But! Do! Bring! Me! A! Snack! Chocolate!

    • Chet: (angrily) I hope your face can catch, Bob, because I'm throwing your words back in it!
