Rudy: I had my ear right to the door and all I heard was "Denise", "Quitter" and "Dropout".
Denise: That's all you heard?
Rudy: No, but then I heard Daddy say (deepens voice) "Rudy, get away from the door!"

Rudy: How come you didn't let him have it?
Vanessa: Roy is a gentleman, Rudy and he was trying to protect my feelings.
Rudy: Oh man, love's a joke!
Vanessa: No, it's not! Not if you have a guy like Roy. (goes upstairs excited) Yes!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Rudy: In two days, she'll be writing about dead crickets again.
