        Adam: No, kidding they really work? Hey, Sarah Whoo-Whoo.

      • Clarence: Well, why don't we just sit down over here and have a nice little chat?
        Walter: That's quite a guy. (flatulent sound)
        Clarence: Walter, I'm shocked, you actually fell for the old whoopee cushion gag.

      • Clarence: Buddy, I'd like to go back to work? Being the life of the party is exhausting.
        Buddy: Yeah, your telling me.

      • Jamie: Did Buddy talk to his mother?
        Charles: No, he doesn't want to embarrass her.

      • Clarence: (child's voice) This is a real nice restaurant Lillian? You know, I have relatives in the restaurant business? Unfortunately most of them are toothpicks.

      • Walter: Charles, welcome home? Lembeck, go home?

      • Jamie: You know I never thought of Buddy as having parents, I always thought he just sprouted in some dark wet corner and kept growing.

      • Clarence: Oh, Buddy's biggest fault is his tendency to be serious.
        Charles: Yes, I've always said that.

      • Buddy: Daddy, does Mom know your gonna be gone this long?
        Clarence: Mom, eh, probably not, but you know the old saying "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" I'm out of her sight and she's out of her mind.
