    • QUOTES (7)

      • Kevin, Joe, and Nick are having a jam session that startles Carl from his sleep.

        Carl: What's going on?
        Nick: We're rehearsing.
        Carl (looking at his watch): At 3 in the morning!?
        Joe: Rock N' Roll doesn't wear a watch!
        Kevin: Yeah! We're rock stars - we stay up late on school nights! HIT IT!!!

      • Kevin: Y'know, I do have an idea of how we can make this right.
        Nick: Really? Can you tell us your idea without using the words chowder, monkey, pogo, harpsichord, or time machine?
        Kevin: ...No.

      • Nick: (explaining to Carl how they divvy up the stuffed animals fans send) Joe likes woodland creatures, Kevin likes things that swim, and I like things that make noise.
        Carl: (picks up a bear in scuba gear that squeaks) What about this?
        Tom: I'll take that. (leaves)
        Nick: He'll give that to Frankie.
        Tom: (from the next room) No I won't!

      • Stella: Well I clearly remember the time in third grade when the Shoe filled my Penelope Peachpit purse with pudding!
        (Kevin snorts with laughter)
        Stella: You think that's funny?
        Kevin: No, ma'am.
        Joe: Stella, usually when a boy is mean to a girl, he's crushing on her.
        Stella: Are you defending him?
        Joe: No, ma'am!

      • Joe: Or that time at summer camp when that rabbit got into our tent and Kevin went off screaming?
        Kevin: The shadow made it look like a bear.
        Nick: With big floppy ears?
        Kevin: That's what made it more scary!

      • Stella: I got you a peace offering. It's French onion dip and somebody dipped a chip in it and the chip dip spot looks just like Nick!
        Macy: No way, there's no such thing as Jonas in a snack dip. I mean, there have been rumours but I.... (Stella opens the dip and Macy gasps) It does look like Nick! Look at the way the chives reflect his intense demeanour!

      • Joe: (Reading Carl's note) Sorry this didn't work out. I know I can really be annoying sometimes.
        Kevin: You can be really annoying, Joe.
        Joe: I'm still reading the note.
        Kevin: Oh, sorry
        Joe: The only cool thing about me is that I know you guys.
        Kevin: Joe, don't say that. You have really cool hair.
        Joe: Still reading!

      • Stella: Well I clearly remember the time in third grade, when the Shoe filled my Penelope Peachpit purse with pudding!

      • Episode Title: Band's Best Friend

        "Band's Best Friend" is a play on the old saying man's best friend. In 1870, a lawyer by the name of George Graham Vest wrote a poignant speech about dogs for a court case. One of the lines, "The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.", was eventually pared down to man's best friend by the press.
