      • The gray-haired boy states that, for the time being, his name is Dash X, thanks to the markings on the back of his hands... a + and a -.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Marshall: (during his opening monologue) Sometimes it gets tough battling the forces of Eerie by myself, even with a little help from Simon, but I always thought I could count on Mom and Dad for a dose of normality. But the Dad joined The Loyal Order of Corn, Eerie's version of the Moose Lodge, and started spending all his free time there, which drove Mom crazy. I'd never even noticed the place. It kind of makes me wonder what else I hadn't noticed...

      • Simon: I can't believe I'm actually here, at the loyal order of corn.
        Marshall: Simon, you've lived in Eerie all your life. What's the big deal, anyways? It's just a weirdo lodge.
        Simon: People say they run things. People say you better do as they say.
        Marshall: Do people notice that they're a bunch of goons in stupid hats?

      • (After Marshall and Simon bribe Dash-X for a second time)
        Dash: You guys should get a job like this. I'm making a fortune.
        Simon: (To Marshall) Have you noticed ever since we met this guy we're always broke?

      • Dash: Just tell me one thing. Are you my father?
        Ned: If only it were as simple as that.

      • Dash: (to Marshall and Simon) Well, well, well...If it isn't Thelma and Louise!

    • NOTES (1)

      • Dash-X: That's what Cortez said
