    • Ron: (while trapped on a broken down Ferris wheel) All of you be quiet. Andy, she's mad because you said "awesomesauce" instead of "I love you too." April, he loves you. Stop being a child. Tom, you're clearly at fault here. Blaming Jerry won't save you. Jerry, we both know you were shotgunning funnel cakes instead of watching Li'l Sebastian. So everyone apologize to everyone else!

    • Leslie: (about Li'l Sebastian) Jerry's gonna look after him.
      Jerry: I am. We are both on the same diabetes medication. (to Li'l Sebastian) Are you my Glucotrol buddy? Are you?

    • Ken: There are two things I know about white people: they love Matchbox 20 and they are terrified of curses.
