    • Shawn: Cory! For New Year's Eve, I got us a limousine.

    • Eric (to a random little boy on the train): So Timmy, hey tiger here's the plan. I'm gonna lower you down. When your feet hit the tracks I want you to start running. You're gonna find this girl and give her this note. OK? Take the note Timmy. Now run like the wind.

    • Cory: It's nice to see you in a better mood, brother.

    • Eric: Okay, if I can just pry my fingers into the door...they would get stuck! Like this; OW!

      Cory: Shawn, you just wished him a spicy pasta.

    • Shawn: You're asking us for money, aren't you?
      Mr. Feeny: Yes, I've hit bottom.
      Shawn: Welcome.

    • TJ: Hey man. You know, I thought tonight was gonna be a wash but you pulled it together and turned it into a parrr-tay!
