    • (In a store, Dale tries on some kitchen gloves, and then asks a lady)
      Dale: Excuse me, but would you know if these gloves are good for killing a man?
      (The lady takes off in fear. Dale then finds a turkey baster and pretends to use it on himself like a lethal injection needle)

    • Wesley: Peggy, if you bring me my Boggle set, you'll make my dreams come true.
      Peggy: I am a 'dream weaver'.

    • Wesley: How do you say: Peggy is the smartest, most talented woman in this world?
      Peggy: Hmmm. That would be: Peggy is bueno.

    • Bobby: (to Peggy) You got a letter. Smells like the ones Luanne used to get from her mother in prison, only prisonier.

    • Hank: So I guess it's this convict's word against my wife's. Now, let's see, who can we trust? Peggy, have you ever decapitated anyone?
      Peggy: No, I don't believe I have. How about you, Wes? Have you ever done anything that caused a man's head to come off?

    • Bobby: My Sloppy Joe is all Sloppy and no Joe.

    • Dale: Where's Old Sparky?
      Warden: Old Sparky's been put out to pasture. We use lethal injection.
      Dale: Okay, where's Old Squirty? Dead is dead, I don't care how we get there.

    • Dale: Executioning. For us exterminators, that's the major league. The show.

    • Bobby: (to Peggy) Hey you covered up my essay on pollution.
      Hank: (real loud) I don't know Bobby. I guess to get your mother's attention, we are going to have to kill someone.
      Bobby: (only on CC) Okay.

    • Peggy: Listen to this, it's from an old student of mine. He's on Death Row. "...and as I raise my hand for possibly my final question, I hope that Ms. Peggy Hill will call on me one more time, because she is the person who has had the most positive impact on my life. Sincerely, Wesley Martin Archer."
      Bobby: That's a good name for a killer.
