D.J.: Dig in, Rusty.
Stephanie: Yeah. Go ahead. Drink your ice cream soda.
(Rusty almost takes a sip, then stops)
Rusty: Wait a minute. I ain't the master of disaster for nothin'. What did you put in it? Dog food?
D.J.: He's too smart for us, Steph.
Rusty: I'll just make my own ice cream soda. Where are the glasses?
Stephanie: In that cupboard.
(Rusty walks up to the cupboard, opens it, and Michelle, inside, sprays him with whipped cream)
Rusty: AAH!! HEY!!
(Stephanie and D.J. blast whipped cream on Rusty, as well)
Michelle: Gotcha, dude!
(after the girls have finished, Rusty grabs a towel and wipes off the cream)
Rusty: Pretty good trick, girls. Of course, you know, this means war.
Stephanie: Anytime, Rusty.
Rusty: You're okay, Mr. Tanner.
Danny: Hey. Call me Danny.
(he hugs Rusty)
Rusty: You're a real touchy-feely sorta guy, aren't you, Danny?
Danny: You'll get used to it.
Joey: (on tape) Hi, I'm Joey Gladstone. And, well, I put some of my funniest moments on this here tape.
(video gets cut off, switches to Rusty filming himself after he rigged the signal)
Rusty: (on tape) This is Rusty Vision! (laughs and blows raspberries)
Rusty: You know, you look good in green.
Danny: Pranks are one thing. But when you mess with a man's shampoo, you're messin' with the man.
Rusty: It washes right out.
Danny: (when the doorbell rings) Oh, God, that must be her. Okay, guys, listen up. I like Cindy a lot, and she and I really hit it off, so no pressure, but I just want today to be the best day she's ever had.
Jesse: So let her in.
(Danny runs downstairs in a bathrobe with a towel over his head; he sees Comet eating pot roast)
Danny: Why is there a soapy dog eating a rump-roast on my couch?
D.J.: Take a wild guess.
All else: Rusty!
Michelle: That kid is bad news.
Danny: Michelle, did Rusty do that to your eye?
Michelle: With his kaleidoscope.
Danny: That doesn't sound like little Rusty.
Stephanie: Dad, wake up. He's the devil boy!
Danny: I can't believe he did this.
(he removes the towel from his head, exposing his "green" hair)
Jesse: Danny, just outta curiosity, was little Rusty in the bathroom before you took a shower?
Danny: Yeah. Why do you ask? (he sees his hair in the mirror) RUSTY!!
Danny: Rusty, I don't understand. I really wanted us to be friends.
Rusty: You don't wanna be my friend. You wanna be my mom's friend.
Danny: Well, I like your mom very much.
Rusty: You're wasting your time, 'cause someday my mom and dad are getting back together.
Danny: Oh. That's what this is about. Look, Rusty, I know how you feel. My parents are divorced, too. It hurts that they're not together. But you can't wreck every relationship that your mom tries to make. You know that's not fair.
Rusty: I don't wanna talk about it. (doorbell rings)
Danny: That must be your mom.
Rusty: Go ahead. Tell on me.
Michelle: My daddy likes you.
Cindy: Oh, that's so sweet.
Michelle: Thanks. Where's my dollar?
Cindy: Hairspray helps remove ink stains.
Danny: I love it when you talk clean to me.
This is the first time Joey uses his "Mr Woodchuck" voice, which he takes to television in Season 5's "The Legend of Ranger Joe".
This episode introduces Rusty and Cindy.
The Sound of Music
Danny has everyone line up in order from tallest to shortest and tells Jesse to stand up straight. Jesse then replies, "What is this, a Julie Andrews movie?" This is in reference to when Captain von Trapp had his children all line up to meet Julie Andrews' character in The Sound of Music. The group then starts singing Do-Re-Mi from the same movie.
