  • Quotes

    • Misery: My cousins are coming? Ruby... you invited... my cousins? My cousins... together, as a duo? As two people joined together in sibling unity?
      Ruby: Well it was gonna be a surprise, but yes! Isn't it great?

    • Malady: Ouch! An acorn hit me in the head. Now I'll get scurvy.
      Poe: Oh, my dear, one gets scurvy due to lack of vitamin C. Perhaps your ailments are psychosomatic, that is, all in your head. (zoom out to show Malady's green face) Aah! I stand corrected.

    • Frank: Unbelievable! On the seventh anniversary of the day Misery was rescued from an iceflow, she's stuck - on an iceflow!
      Len: I believe that is what is called "onomatopoeia"
      Frank: No Len, it's not. It's "irony"
      Len:: Well, that sure would be easier to spell.

    • Malady: So then the doctor said the corn will have to come off the foot. Can you believe that?
      Scaredy: No! I cannot!
      Malady: The specialist had never seen a corn that long on a toe. There was talk of amputation, but they couldn't find a saw big enough.
      Scaredy: (to himself) I will never say "Hello, how are you?" again in my life!
      Malady: (while Scaredy is talking) Luckily, it wasn't my foot, it was my tennis elbow. (after Scaredy finishes speaking) Strange since I don't play tennis isn't it. There was talk of amputation, but then how do you amputate an elbow?
