  • Quotes

    • Buster: (regarding Amazonia) Hey, there's a lot of fish in here for a rainforest. Ooh, maybe those are piranhas.

    • Buster: (sighs) I've been a little behind the entire day. Well, I guess I can't have my cake and eat it too.

    • Adriannah: (saying grace) Thank God for fixing our food. Thank God for waking us up. Thank God for keeping us safe. Thank God for giving us life and not death and I hope we win the lottery.

    • Alyssa: Look at all this. Casserole, turkey, sweet corn. This is just like Easter at my house.

    • Mother: Is there anything you don't like, Buster?
      Buster: Being hungry.

    • Buster: What's in the bag?
      Keith: (He opens it, showing Buster the contents.) Got drumsticks.
      Buster: Drumsticks? Why are you bringing drumsticks to church?
      Keith: You'll see.
      Buster: (arriving at the church and realizing the purpose of the drumsticks) You get to play drums in church. That's so cool.

    • Muffy: (signed online as "Princess M") Well, are you coming to my party or not?
      Buster: No! In fact, I've said yes to three different things tomorrow and there's no way I'm gonna make them all.
      Muffy: You've triple-booked yourself. Happens all the time to the novice socialite.
      Buster: What? I'm not a socialite. The Baxters always vote independent.

    • Buster: Mt. Bethel Baptist Church.
      Alyssa: Get out! This is the church I used to go to when I was growing up. It hasn't changed a bit.

    • Buster: Hey, I double Dutched. But it wasn't for very long. Maybe that was just a single Dutch?

    • Female Librarian: I do have some books on ice cream.
      Buster: Ah, that's okay. Reading about it will only make me hungrier.

    • Buster: Hey, look! An ice-cream truck! And it's a biggie. Jackpot! Hi, ma'am. I'll take a chocolate vanilla swirl with extra sprinkles, please.
      Female Librarian: Hi! This isn't an ice-cream truck. This is the D.C. Public Library's extreme mobile.

    • Muffy: Buster, you have to come to the Crosswire egg hunt! You're the star. You always find Big Bertha.
      Buster: Big Bertha! I'd forgotten about her.
