    • Mr. Denby: You're not really a gypsy, are you, Norm?
      Norm: No, no I'm not, sir.
      Mr. Denby: You're a dead man.
      Norm: I take offense at that, sir. I happen to come from a long line of dead people. Yes, and I will not stand idly by as you attack my rich dead cultural heritage. That's right, we gave you rigor mortis and Casper the Friendly Ghost, and this is how you repay us?

    • Laurie: Norm, that is like the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me while insulting an entire race of people.

    • Laurie: Cool Stix cause cancer. Unless you don't call it cancer. Unless you call it Happy Fun Bumps!

    • Laurie: I suppose I could do this... if I were... Satan!

    • Laurie: Is he smoking a cigarette?
      Marketer: No, no. It's a Cool Stick. See, cigarettes have a negative connotation. Cool Stix, on the other hand, are brightly colored sticks of smoking fun.

    • Norm: What's the worst thing a social worker could be?
      Molly: You?

    • Mr. Denby: It's too risky and we don't have the insurance. You see children; I see tiny plaintiffs.

    • Norm: I'll cancel out every bad thing you say.
      Laurie: All right, cancel this: refused to help addicts.
      Norm: Uh... did not try to shoot me.
      Laurie: Bad thing: doesn't want teenagers to have condoms.
      Norm: Good thing: more condoms for me!

    • Mr. Denby: You're a boat-rocker, aren't you? I don't rock boats. I don't make waves. I don't do anything nautical at all.
