  • Quotes

    • Mr. Ernst: You know what they say: Giving is never entirely an unselfish act.
      Danny: What do you mean?
      Mr. Ernst: You always get something in return.

    • Melody: I really think it (the party) is going well. I feel like I'm in a movie or something like Miracle on 34th Street.
      (Mr. Ernst enters dressed like Santa)
      Brad: I think it just turned into Halloween: Part 5.

    • Buddy: Hi guys, did you try my Christmas surprise yet?
      (Danny is behind Melody signaling "no" to Brad)
      Melody: No Buddy, but I think it is wonderful the way you used the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. I'm so proud of you. (takes a bite)
      Brad: What is it?
      Buddy: Its my sour chili and hot guacamole combo.
      (Brad laughs while Mel spits it out)
      Jake: Buddy, I'm glad I caught you before that stuff disappeared, OK to go for seconds.

    • (Bobby on Charisma, Brad's horse)
      Bobby: Brad, I have four good legs now.
      Brad: You sure do, Bobby. You sure do.

    • Melody: Brad, why do I sense that your not overflowing with the Christmas spirit?
      Brad: Because it's July, because its a 105 degrees in the shade, because Santa Claus is at home with his air conditioning set on "tundra", and because a snowball from The Bar None refrigerator does not a blizzard make.

    • Jake (to Brad): They don't want you to relate to their handicap they want you to relate to them.

    • Jake (to Brad): I don't want you going overboard on my gift. However, I have left several catalogs from "Drum World" by your bunk and they all take Visa and Mastercard.

    • Cindy: Riding gives these kids a terrific sense of self-worth, physically and mentally. Your sitting tall in the saddle, looking down from a commanding height. Thats' not the view you get from a wheelchair.

    • Melody: Jake, I'll put you down for entertainment.
      Jake: I was hoping to run the valet parking.

    • Danny: When Buddy cooks even the flies leave the kitchen.

    • Melody: I'm organizing committees for the Christmas in July party.
      Jake, Buddy, Danny: Good-bye.
      Melody: Halt!
