    • Buddy: A little applause, please. I just got an A on my family tree -- and the only one in the class.
      Kate: Hey! Terrific!
      Buddy: But no thanks to you. Because if it was up to you, there'd be nothing special about it at all.
      Doug: Special?
      Buddy: Yeah. Nobody else in the class has anything like a madam in their family.
      Doug (looking pained): Who told you? Uncle Jerry?
      Buddy: No. Uncle Jerry said she was your aunt, twice removed. Emmet said she was a madam.
      Doug: Emmet?
      Buddy: First he thought, no, she was probably just a hoo--
      Doug: Never mind!

    • Willie: Don't you wanna stay here? Together, you and me?
      Emmet: Man, that may be the dumbest question anybody asked me in my whole life. Yeah, I wanna stay here. And you know something? I wanna stay here for all kinds of reasons that have nothing to do with what you think.
      Willie: I don't think anything.
      Emmet: Sure you do. You think I got a better shot at things with you. Maybe get to college, be a mover of men.
      Willie: OK, I do think that.

    • Emmet: Hey, this place is big! You live in all of it?
      Willie: All of it.
      Emmet: Hey Willie -- I just figured something out: you're a rich kid.
      Willie: No, no no no. Not rich. Comfortable.
      Emmet: Willie, there's rich, and there's poor. And comfortable don't match up with poor.
