    "Talking Points" was a little bit better than the season premiere, but this show is still in a sophomore slump and we all know that Hiccups can be better than this. I liked the Taylor storyline dealing with points at a store and trying to manipulate people, but in classic sitcom fashion, getting screwed in the end. It worked, it was funny, maybe not entirely original, but it worked. The Millie thing was alright, I laughed a few times, but as I've said before, this is a rare case where the star of the show is the worst thing about it. That was really prevalent tonight.moreless

    • Taylor: We have a major department store interested in marketing [Missy Grumpaloo dolls].
      Joyce: So if everything goes as planned, they'll be ready just in time for Christmas.
      Millie: And we all know what that means!
      Joyce: It means Mommy and Daddy better get out their wallets.
      Millie: I was going to say that Santa's going to be very busy this year.
      Joyce: Well, that goes without saying.

    • Joyce: [Millie]'s pretending to hate the Missy Grumpaloo doll.
      Stan: I see. And we want her to really hate the doll. Or love the doll? Maybe she should stop playing with dolls all together.

    • Stan: Now, these are professional voice actors, try not to be intimidated.
      Millie: I'd be more intimidated in a room full of pillow monkeys.
      Stan: Pillow monkeys?
      Millie: Yeah, monkeys made out of pillows. Where have you been?

    • (listening to the audition tapes)
      Millie: Well, I'm no expert, but that last person was horrible.
      Taylor: Actually, that last audition was you.
      Millie: Seriously, it was the lady who slept in the barn, right? Or was it that guy with no 'nads?

    • Sheila: Taylor! My nephew's soccer team is selling chocolate bars to raise money for new uniforms.
      Taylor: I'm also selling some stuff to help raise money.
      Sheila: Oh, great. For what cause?
      Taylor: 'Cause I want a leather jacket.
      Sheila: For a team?
      Taylor: Team Taylor.
      Sheila: Wow. Pretty selfish, Taylor. Pretty damn selfish.
      Taylor: Oh, and five bucks for a chocolate bar isn't?

    • Stan: Okay, now you remember the conversation topics?
      Anna: Flavoured popcorn and rum drinks. What about gay marriage? Or women in the priesthood?
      Stan: She doesn't understand what the fuss is all about. But flavoured popcorn drives her nuts. And she can't shut up about rum.

    • (end voice-over)
      Millie: One day, Missy Grumpaloo woke up and discovered that she'd lost her beautiful voice. She learned that an evil lizard had stolen her voice, and was holding it for ransom in a magical box. So Missy started performing as a mime and made lots and lots of money. And when she had enough, she returned to the lizard and beat his brains in with her bag of coins and took back her voice.
