  • Quotes

    • Dale: Nancy, what's Redcorn doing in our shower?

    • Man: Look, Gribble's got a standing order for alien urine. Eight drums, $319. You won't find a better price.
      Hank: That seems like a lot of money. Couldn't this wait thirty hours?
      Man: In thirty hours it'll be pure zephyrum!

    • Hank: Where am I supposed to get mice?
      Dale: I left a plate of bacon in your attic. You should have plenty by nightfall.

    • Dale: Count me out. The vast majority of unauthorized face removals happen to people in hospitals.
      Hank: You disappoint me, Dale.
      Dale: Get in line.

    • Bill: John Force is the greatest funny-car racer ever. He's done more in a quarter-mile than I've done in my whole life.

    • (Hank has just broken the news to Dale that he promised his kidney to someone else after John Force didn't need it)
      Dale: YOU CAN'T DO THAT! I can't believe this, you were supposed to protect me! (heart monitor goes off) Oh god -They know I know- I'm in the network! Why isn't my head wrapped in tin foil?
      Doctor: Mr. Gribble, we're gonna need you to calm down... look at me! (injects him with a sedative)
      Dale: It's happening! The harvest has begun! How could you let this happen to me, Hank?! I trusted you! I... (passes out)
      Hank: Sorry Dale.
      Doctor: Mr. Hill, you have nothing to feel guilty about - that was just some typical post-op dementia, brought on by the anesthesia. It was not the real Dale talking.
      Hank: No, that was him.

    • Nancy: I couldn't help noticing, Sug, you're not eating any solids and you're only drinking clear fluids.
      Dale: That's because I'm donating my kidney to John Force tomorrow.
      Nancy: What?!
      Dale: Oh, did I not mention that? I won't be home for three days. Well, gotta go get shaved (gets up and walks towards the door) - love you!

    • Dale: (giving instructions about his kidney to the boy recieving it) At least once a week give him a can of Mountain Dew. He likes that.
