      • Judy: A CD player! Look out! I'm musically armed and dangerous!
        Eddie: Whoa! Check out my new boom box! (laughs)
        Carl: Hey. Please tell me we got 'em headphones, too.

      • Carl: (after Rachel tells him that Richie wants nothing but a Freddy Teddy for Christmas) So, what is it? You need some money, Rachel? Is, uh, Fuddy Duddy expensive?
        Rachel: Freddy Teddy. No. It's not that. It's just that I've been to every toy store in town, and they're all sold out.
        Carl: Oh.
        Rachel: You know, the toy companies do that on purpose. See, they deliberately create a shortage, which increases demand, which shoots up their profits!
        Carl: Rachel?
        Rachel: You know, they don't give a HOOT about the customer! It's just money! Money! Money! I tell ya, it just burns my boots.
        Carl: Rachel...
        Rachel: Y'know what? I'm'a call my congressman. N-n-no! I'm'a call the senator! Oh, forget that! I'm callin' the PRESIDENT!

      • Carl: I'll call Al Mushman.
        Rachel: Oh, who?
        Carl: Al Mushman. Our equipment supply officer. He can find anything. If there's a "Fonky Franky" within 500 square miles...
        Rachel: Freddy... Teddy.
        Carl: Whatever. Mushman will know where it is.
        Estelle: Carl?
        Carl: Yeah?
        Estelle: Is Al Mushman cute?
        Carl: I guess.
        Estelle: Is he single?
        Carl: Yes.
        Estelle: And he can find anything?

        Estelle: Then tell him he can find me here tonight at 8:00.

      • Steve: I'm spending Christmas with my Uncle Cecil.

        Steve: He beat that rap. He had a Polaroid of the judge tickling the baliff with a rubber ducky.

      • Eddie: Steve, you shouldn't have told Richie that Santa was going to bring him a Freddy Teddy.
        Steve: Well why the Sam Hill not?

        Steve: Well, why's she even bothering? That's Santa's job.
