Walter: Who would think something like this would happen from harmless flares and roman candles?

Steve: At least at home they have cable.
"Mud": Dad! Just because I'm smart doesn't mean I can't act stupid.
Gaby: If Mud's guilty I am too.
Zach: I'm guilty too!
Trish: Yeah and I'm stupid too! Well... you know what I mean.
Gaby: Smart enough to act stupid.
Dennis Van Welker: You know, back in the '60s when we said we wanted to change society, maybe we should've been more specific.

Dennis Van Welker: No... not *here*. (Takes a step to the right and nods)
Arnold: Relax... it'll be fine... I mean we're not complete morons!

Morris 'Mud' Himmel [complaining about his parents]:
Jesus, they talk about me like... I'm unemployed or something.
Morris 'Mud' Himmel: Zach, you're gonna put somebody's eye out!... I'm turning into my parents.
Welker [some advise to Mud]: Here's what you do: get lost! Disappear into the woods for five or six hours. When you show up they'll be so glad you haven't been eaten by bears, they'll forget the other stuff!
...then you'll start to grow some, ... chests.
T.R. Polk: [after getting the money for Dennis' car] You're a little short.
