    • 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.
      (Hariette nods)
      Carl: Thank God.

    • 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?
      Carl: Right, Mama.
      Estelle: Then tell him he can find me here tonight at 8:00.

    • Steve: I'm spending Christmas with my Uncle Cecil.
      Carl: I thought your Uncle Cecil was busted for operating an unlicensed hot-tub club.
      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?
      Laura: Because Aunt Rachel's having a hard time finding one.
      Steve: Well, why's she even bothering? That's Santa's job.

    • Richie: Hey, Steve, I'm gonna ask Santa for a teddy bear.
      Steve: Well, were you a good boy this year?
      Richie: Well, I had a pretty good August.
