    • Grim: (pointing at Frankenstein's Bride Billy, do you know who this is?
      Billy: Your Mama?

    • Billy's Dad: Now look, Billy. It's not that I think you're (farts) girly for doing it. It's just think that you're not MACHOFORTE.

    • Grim: Uh, excuse me, sir? Do you have time for an informal survey? What do you think is more frightening, these three SCARY monsters, or this glass of water?
      Man: (gasp) WATER!! Eh, eh, WATER!!!
      Grim: Look, mon. I'll give you five bucks to think those monsters are scary.

    • Billy's Dad: Hey, Billy. (seeing Billy's soul getting sucked away by Ms. Pollywinkle) You forgot your dance bag in the car. Oh my gosh! An evil witch is using this ballet school to recruit innocent dance students so she can steal their souls! And now she's about to suck out Billy's soul!
      Grim: Wow! That's pretty good! He got us faster than you did.
      Mandy: Shut up.

    • Grim: Huh! Well, then. Maybe I should have mentioned that the only possible way a dark witch can overpower my scythe is by turning it into a giant snake and using it tie us up.
      Mandy: Whatever.
