Grandma Cartman: Mom, could you say grace?
Great-Grandma Cartman: Goddammit, why do I always have to be the one who says grace?! If one more person asks me to say grace, I'll be like: "Ey! I'm not saying grace, and if you try to make me, I'll kick you square in the nuts!"
Cousin Elwin: Mister Hankey kicks ass!
Charles Manson: (after Kenny was shot to death by the police) Oh my god! They killed the little orange coat kid!
Kyle: You bastards!
Cartman's Grandma: (as they haul her son back to the pokey) Watch that ass in prison, son.
Uncle Howard: Always do, mom. Always do.
(As whole Cartman family is singing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" with Charles Manson)
Stan: Dude, this is pretty f**ked up right here.
Grandma: I thought that shirt would look really good on you.
Cartman: Are you telling me I drove nine hours through butt-f**king nowhere to get a GODDAMN SHIRT?! Mom, Grandma's gone senile, time to stick her in a home.
Jimmy Stewart: You can't just buy people Mr. Potter. You know what you are? You're a little bitch. That's right, you're a bitch and I'll bet you'd like to suck it, wouldn't you?
Charles Manson: (singing) Holidays are that special time when we laugh and sing and feel warm and cozy. Forget about being angry for a day. Remember how it felt to be a child, opening presents on Christmas morning? That's the way that we should all feel now. So I say, happy, happy, happy, holy, happy, happy, happy, happy holidays! (Happy, happy, happy, holy, happy, happy, happy, happy holidays!) Happy Kwanzaa, too, from me to you. Happy holidays, you guys.
