Earl: Face it, Fran, the boy's got to learn to fight his own fights.
Fran: And what if he gets killed?
Earl: Then I guess I'll owe you an apology.
Robbie: Listen up maggots, I'm in charge now, you're gonna do what I say, you're gonna do it when I say it...otherwise I'm gonna chew you up, spit you out and dance on your bones.
Charlene: A pack of wild dinosaurs mopped the street with him.
Fran: Tell me what ACTUALLY happened.
Charlene: They ACTUALLY mopped the street with him, they ACTUALLY picked him up by his feet, they ACTUALLY dunked his head in the swamp, and they ACTUALLY dragged him all up and down the street, which I must say is cleaner than it's ever been.
Robbie: You mean I'm killed by the enemy if I stay, or by my own gang if I go?
Fran: Earl, a pack of boys beat on Robbie again.
Earl: He should've fought back.
Fran: There were eight of them!
Fran: Did another pack beat you up?
Robbie: No, I hurt myself studying.
Fran: Robbie, I want you to give me all the names of the boys who did this to you.
Robbie: Hey, you waxed the table...I can see myself.
