- You are such an ass... (drinks water) ... set to this company.
- Ashley! Who are you doing here?
- You lock me out, no money, no place to go, a sister got to get her cheese on.
- I do believe I'm stoned.
- [guns fired] Pussies
- [to Charlene] You messed with the wrong W.A.S.P., bitch.
- Oh, I can't talk about it 'cause gangsta people will come to my house and cut me.
- [Reading an article from an adult magazine] The girl had double D cups. I put my mouth on her nipple.
- Georgey: [reading an article from an adult magazine] Dad, what's a rack?
- Peter: It's a country.
- Howie: I'd like to dip you in Cheez Wiz and spread you all over a Ritz cracker, if I'm not being too stuble.
- Charlene: Boy, you some kind of freaky!
- Howie: Oh, you have no idea. You got me straight trippin' boo!
- Mrs. Kline: We have to brush your hair differently. You look like a fag.

- Charlene: I kicked it off the heezy and bounced... for real, though!
- Peter: What did you just say?
- Ashley: [to Peter, about Charlene] What is she doing here?
- Charlene: Oh. Get used to it, twiggy; you're going to be seeing a lot more of me around here!
- Ashley: [to Peter, about Charlene] Not without a broom in your hand.

- Mrs. Arness: Mmmm... "Mama, is master going to sell us tomorrow? Yes, yes, yes! Mama, is master going to sell us tomorrow? Yes, yes, yes! Mama... is master going to sell ME to-mor-or-or-row..."
- Howie: Do me a favor, precious: don't ever scare me like that again, or I'm going to give you a nasty spanking... if I'm not being too subtle!
- Charlene: [smiles] He's such a damn freak!
- Peter: Charlene, what is this particular taste? It's familiar, yet... what is it, some sort of an herb, like sage?
- Charlene: Naw... it's more like a milk of mint.
- Peter: Well, whatever it is, the taste is explosive!
- Charlene: Well, good then! Enjoy!
