  • Quotes

    • Randy: My grades were in the toilet, I was ready to flunk out, and then they brought in Attila the Sub.
      Dorothy: I loved that name, I earned that name. I remember you, always cutting class and I always knew where you were cutting it. Down at the arcade playing those pinball machines, and look at you now. What do you do?
      Randy: Video games, I manufacture video games.
      Dorothy: It's funny, you do your best to teach somebody and you never know how they're going to turn out.

    • Rose: (holding out a flannel nightie) This is the nightgown that makes Miles ... you know ... hot.
