  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Dewey: Hey, you're right. The candy you steal off other kids really does taste better.
      Reese: I'm telling you, it's the fear.

    • Reese: I hate when they talk about your costumes. They know what we're here for. Just pay up, so we can go.
      Dewey: Hey, look at that! The old guy's still after us.
      Reese: You gotta admire it. I hope when I'm his age, I still have enough hate to do what he's doing.

    • Lois: (to Reese and Dewey)
      Alright, you know the plan. You two are taking Jamie. No eggs, no stink bombs, no matches, no catapults, no mace.
      Reese: Fine.
      Lois: No explosives.
      Reese: Of course not.
      Lois: No water balloons, no spray paint, no gasoline, no shaving cream, no toilet paper.
      Reese: Wouldn't even think of it.
      Lois: No ladder, no compressor, no soup.
      Reese: (to Dewey) You told her!

    • Dewey: It just doesn't make sense. Why would you fake being sick on Halloween?
      Malcolm: I'm not faking it. I feel like crap. I must have gotten it from that death tour guy. I thought his clammy handshake was just part of the act.
      Reese: You've got to keep your immune system in shape, Malcolm. Every once in a while, pick some gum off the seat and chew it. Ounce of prevention, dude.

    • Lois: I cannot believe they called me into work. I requested Halloween off eight months ago, and suddenly, Mary Beth becomes a Wiccan so she can take it as a religious holiday.
      Hal: There will be more Halloweens... barring some tragic event.
      Lois: But this is the good one, you know? There's such a tiny window where the kids are so sweet and adorable and you can dress them up however you want. Every year after that, Halloween's just another trip to the police station.

    • Hal: (whispering) You knew we were buying a death house and you didn't tell me?!
      Lois: I didn't tell you because I knew you'd have this reaction.
      Hal: Well, of course I'd have this reaction. I don't like murder. Maybe that's something you should know about me.
      Lois: Hal, it's always something with you. You passed on that one house because you thought the doorbell sounded gay. You can't have a perfect house.
      Hal: It would be nice to have a murderless one.
      Lois: Well, you should just drop it because there's nothing we can do about it. Death and mold are two things you can expect to find in any house and we are not moving!
      Hal: There's mold?!

    • Hal: Oh, another knife in the head!
      (kids look at him weird)
      Hal: Do think it would be funny if you had a real knife in your head?

    • Craig: (slurring) Lois, I've been thinking about it and I just want you to know I'm sorry. I believe in you and what you're doing here. You're doing the right thing.
      Lois: (shocked) Are you drunk?
      Craig: Chuilty's garged!
      Lois: Aren't you on the clock?
      Craig: But it's a party and they invited me, knowing full well that being wanted is my Kryptonite.
      Lois: A party? So they're all drinking out there?
      (speaker goes on)
      Woman: (through the speaker) Attention, Lucky Aide shoppers! Who's gonna come up here and kiss me, right now, dammit?
