  • Quotes

    • Bobby: You know, Dad, I think your obsession with auto shop stems from your unresolved feelings about your father. And maybe we should explore some of those feelings.
      Hank: Bobby, you know how I explore my feelings? I fix my truck or your mother's car. When Mr. Dauterive's wife left him, we tuned up his Escort. And when that little fella from the Fantasy Island died, we put the ant on top of Dale's van.

    • Hank: I didn't know if you were a Ford man or a Chevy man. It was the happiest problem I've ever faced.

    • Bobby: Think about it: why do guys like us keep striking out with the ladies?
      Joseph: Because I'm weird, and you're chubby and kind of dumb?
      Bobby: Don't be ridiculous.

    • Bobby: What we need to do is find a class with a lot of girls. Girls who don't know us.
      Joseph: Yeah, we can pretend we're from the future. And we have to experiment on them. Wait, this is why girls don't like me, isn't it?

    • Stacey: (to Bobby) Aren't you the kid they had to cut out of the soccer net?

    • Joseph: Isn't your dad going to be mad?
      Bobby: Oh, it's football season. I'm WAY off his radar.
