    • (Joel is in the girl's locker room)
      Libby: Joel! What are you doing in here?
      Joel:(bummed) Aww, you can see me?
      Libby:(sarcastically) No, you're invisible.
      Joel: I am?
      Libby: No. Get out or I'm telling Coach Safford.

    • (To Sabrina)
      Joel: Now about wardrobe, I'm thinking a velour pantsuit with a plunging neckline. What will you wear?

    • Hilda: Who are you?
      Joel: I'm Joel. You can see me?
      Hilda: Yes and you're not wearing any pants.

    • Justin: I'm here for the lovely magicians assistant job.
      Joel: Well you're really not qualified.
      Justin: Aren't I lovely?
      Joel: Well yes, Justin, you are, but you're not a girl.
      Justin: Well the sign didn't say anything about being a girl.
      Joel: Would you be willing to wear sequins?
      Justin: Sure!
      Joel: Slit up to here?
      (He touches the top of his hip.)

    • Zelda: Thank goodness that she left. Now we can talk about the first millisecond after the big bang. See I think...
      Ethan: (Interrupting her) Love me!
      Zelda: What!
      Ethan: I'm sorry. It's just that we finally get rid of your weird sister and all you can talk about is the big bang? I came here tonight hoping for more than science. I wanted you to look into my eyes and see something other than rods and cones. I love you Zelda. Don't you realize that?
      Zelda: You never said anything.
      Ethan: I've been playing footsie with you all night!
      Zelda: That was you! I thought it was the cat.
