    • QUOTES (6)

      • Edward: Kate, what am I gonna do? I can't just allow people to stand on my son.
        Kate: Maybe you should just trust him to handle it himself.
        Edward: (scoffs)
        Kate: Well, besides, you can't be with him all the time.
        Edward: Well, I know I can't. I can't. But...
        Kate: Uh-oh.
        Edward: What?
        Kate: Well, for a second there, I thought you were getting an idea.
        Edward: I was.
        Kate: Uh-oh.

      • Ricky: Well, some of the kids saw me getting out of the limo this morning, and they put two and two together and figured out I was a rich kid.
        Edward: I knew I should've had Jenkins take you in the Ferrari. Sure, hindsight. Mmm-hmm.

      • Edward: Ricky!
        Ricky: (attempting to hide his black eye) Hi, Dad. Good night, Dad.
        Edward: Hold it. That isn't the eye you left with this morning. What happened to you?
        Ricky: Got hit. Good night.
        Edward: Good night? It's not even dark yet?
        Ricky: Well, it is to me.

      • Edward: Hey, Son, how was school?
        Ricky: We have to talk, Dad.
        Edward: No need to thank me, son. Just the fact that your nose is in the same place, as when you left this morning is all the thanks I need.
        Ricky: I've never been so humiliated. He scared the classroom, he scared the schoolteacher, and worst of all he got a hundred on a history test.
        Mr. T.: Hey, man, I don't hold back for nobody.

      • Ricky: You're my bodyguard? I don't want a bodyguard.
        Mr. T. Hey, kid. This isn't the thrill of my life, either. But your father hired me to do a job. And I'm gonna do it. Anybody mind?
        Everyone: No!

      • (Ricky gets ready to leave for school)
        Edward: Oh, here's--here's your pencils. And here's some milk money.
        Ricky: This is a $100 bill
        Edward: Yeah, in case you want some cookies.
