Randy: Those bastards!
Pearle: Don't you talk about the LAPD that way!
Randy: But you-- But you just said--
Pearle: Once a cop, always a cop, Randy.
Randy: Why not give the water aerobics a try? They say it's not just for old people.

Ted: Ow! I'm down.
Emily: [shocked in horror] What the butt?! We were gone for five minutes!

Emily: Hi, Mrs. Hashima. And thanks so much for us, Olivia.
Mrs. Hashima: She's "Doctor Olivia" now.
Bridgette: [scoffs] She's not a real doctor, she just stayed in school too long.

Bridgette: [picks up an intelli pill from the bowl and walks into the hallway] I'll show them smart. [swallows the pill and an electric bolt elevates up from her spine to her brain] Huh? I guess it doesn't work. AAGH! [falls onto her knees] Mind on fire. Hypotenuse! Parthenogenesis! "Star Trek" continuity!
Emily: [whistling a tune, shimmying over to Mrs. Hashima] You know, maybe you shouldn't be so hard on Bridgette. She's really trying her best.
Mrs. Hashima: Oh, you millennial parents. You'd prefer I celebrate mediocrity?
Emily: What? We don't do that.

Bridgette: [after inventing a Mind-agra pill] 1,000 milligrams of bio-optimized, quick-release nootropic cognitive enhancement. [takes out her phone] Science, bitch! [shutter clicks a selfie]

Bridgette: [clapping slowly] Wow, cool pill… if you like bullshit! Hit it, Alex! [walks up on the stage] Behold! Mind-agra! [holds up a Mind-agra pill in front of the audience as they gasp in surprise]
Olivia: [shocked] No! But how?! [Bridgette wipes her bangs, revealing her increased head; gasps in shock] Bitch took my pill! [runs over to her mother] Mom! She stole my pill and reverse engineered it! Do something!
Mrs. Hashima: Like what? It's about time Bridgette did something useful. [gets up from her seat and walks up on the stage]
Bridgette: [as her sister runs up and swipes the pill bottle out of her hand] Hey!
Olivia: [dumps out a pill from the bottle and swallows it and her brain gets a little bigger as she groans] I…understand! [quickly draws a hypothesis on the chalkboard] I did it! I proved the Riemann hypothesis, the most important unsolved problem in pure mathematics!
[The audience cheers and applause for Olivia as Mrs. Hashima raises up her hand]
Man in Audience: Eat shit, Riemann!
Audience: [chanting] Olivia! Olivia! Olivia!
Bridgette: It's on!
[The Hashima sisters keep on gulping down on Mind-agra pills and both their brains increase bigger]
Olivia: I can see the Internet!
Bridgette: I can manipulate gravity!
[The Hashima sisters rise into the air]
Bridgette: Don't worry, I'll keep this short.
Olivia: Like your bangs?
Bridgette: I'll KILL YOU! [launches herself at her sister and pushes her through the roof of a studio]
Candice: Science is awesome!

Josh: This sucks!
Bridgette: It makes me want to kill myself!
Josh: You've made me hate reading more than I already do! [takes the flat screen TV off the wall and throws it, making it explode]
Alex: Wait, what?! Is it really that bad?
Bridgette: Let's kick him in the nuts!

Josh: [in Candice's body] Whoa! Everyone's freakin' huge!
Candice: [in Emily's body] Hell, yeah, I'm old enough to cuss!
Bridgette: [in Alex's body] I'm literally inside my ex. My therapist is gonna love this.
