  • QUOTES (5)

    • Billy: Hey IRRRRRRRRWIIIIIIIN!!!

    • Mandy: Resistance is useless.

      Obey, obey,
      you must obey.
      You can't resist.
      Do what I say.

      Do the dishes,
      walk the dog,
      clean the cat box,
      slog the hog.

      Obey, obey,
      do as I say.
      You can't resist.
      Don't be that way.

      Take the trash out,
      wash my clothes,
      eat my socks,
      and wipe my nose.

      Give us cookies,
      make my bed.
      Let's play soccer
      with your head.

      Give up, give in,
      do what we say.
      You must obey.
      You must obey.

      You can't resist.
      Don't back away.
      You'll never win.
      We'll have our way!

    • Meteor: Well, hello there, little boy, don't be shy,
      Step right up; I'm a reasonable guy!
      Don't be frightened by the look in my eye,
      I'm just your average evil meteor from out of the sky.

      Well, I'm just shy and scared of this place--
      I'm just a fish out of water from outer space.
      You can see that the trip has left me tired and drained,
      So why don't you be a pal -- and bring me some brains?

      Go down to your neighbor's place.
      See the dull expression on his face?
      You'd doing him a favor if you brought him to me,
      He ain't using his brain, he's just watching TV.

      Go down to Mr. McGee's,
      He hasn't had a thought since '43,
      His brain is the portrait of atrophy,
      He ain't using it, why not give it to me!

      Brains, brains, I won't lie,
      I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified.
      Sure, they might think it's deranged,
      but they won't give it a thought after I've eaten their brains.
      Brains, brains, it's okay -- it's not matter if it isn't grey
      and if, at first, they think it's strange,
      they won't think twice if they don't have a brain.

      Go down to the won-ton shop,
      My fortune cookie says that I just can't stop.
      I'll suck the noodle right out of their heads,
      And half an hour's later I'm hungry again.

      Creep into the Donut Stop
      Sneak in, tiptoe past the cop.
      Pick me up a cruller and a cupful of tea
      And any other sweetbreads you happen to see!

      Brains, brains, I won't lie,
      I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified.
      Sure, they might think it's deranged,
      but they won't give it a thought after I've eaten their brains.
      Brains, brains, it's okay -- it's not matter if it isn't grey
      and if, at first, they think it's strange,
      they won't think twice if they don't have a brain.

      Brains, brains, I love 'em, I need 'em
      my tummy jumps for joy when I eat 'em
      Big ones, fat ones, short ones, tall ones,
      They're so delectable, especially the small ones.

      No time to cook 'em in a skillet,
      my belly's rumblin', and I got a need to fill it
      I don't fry 'em, the heat would only shrink 'em,
      I just grab myself a straw and I drink 'em. Oh!

      You've been swell to go around
      and bring me every single brain in town.
      But with all these brains I can't help but think
      that there isn't one left out there to drink.

      Now 'fess up, boy, come on, heck,
      is there someone that you're trying to protect?
      Bring her down here to meet her end
      and I promise I'll be your bestest friend.

      Brains, brains, I won't lie,
      I'll eat her brain 'til she's zombified.
      Sure, she might think it's deranged,
      but she won't give it a thought after I've eaten her brain.
      Brains, brains, it's okay -- it's not matter if it isn't grey
      and if, at first, she thinks it's strange,
      she won't think twice if she don't have a brain.

      Brains!
      Bring me her brain!
      Bring me her brain!
      Bring me her brain!

    • Mandy: Dance. Dance like you've never danced before.

    • Mandy: That's better.
      Billy: Mandy? Is that you?
      Mandy: Yes, I guess my brain was a little too spicey for that meteor you tried to feed me to.
      Billy: I'm sorry. Can I do anything to make up for it?
      Mandy: Yes. Bring me... some brains.
