Tony Perkis Jr
- Good morning, Campers. Today is evaluation day. The key word here is value. Do you have any? Not yet. But by the time camp is over, you will all be a bunch of skinny winners.
- Attention Campers; Lunch has been canceled today, due to lack of hustle. Deal with it.
- Come on... you devil log!
- Oh look, a deli meat!
- Just Father Sky, Mother Earth, and your dear old Uncle Tony.
- "Congratulations, you've just joined the 76% of Americans who forget to stretch before doing any physical activity.
- Anybody who brings candy to this camp isn't your friend. He's a destroyer.
- Being an only child, educated entirely by private tutors my whole life, I'm looking forward to interacting with children for the first time.
- I'm doggin' it, Pat. I'm doggin' it!
- There are so many myths about the abdominal muscles. I'm happy to put this one to rest.
- I'm too strong. I'm too motivated. And you're too weak!
- Let me make something very clear: the PerkiSystem does not work with cheaters like Gerald Garner! OK?! How can I sell an infomercial about fat kids who can't keep their piggy little snouts shut?! Hmm? Who's gonna buy that, huh?
- "Do it to it, Lars!"
- I'm feeling skinny, Tony!
- HEY, DON'T PEE IN THE WAHTER! Don't drink the wahter, he peed in it!
- Please put your fat finger DOWN!
- You've broken my camera!
- [over speakers] "Now, its time to meet your new owner and operator. Tony Perkis is a man who believes in you. His life is dedicated to saying things like "YES!" and "You better believe it!" Entrepreneur, a motivator, and a new friend! May I introduce, TONY PERKIS!"
- "Congratulations, Mr. Simms. You are the fattest boy in camp."
- The BODY System
*Lars : I have them on the "body" system. *Julie : The "body" system? *Lars : Yeah, the body system. Have a look. *[blows whistle and screams] *Lars : BODY! *Boys : [holding hands] BUDDY! *Lars : BODY! *Boys : BUDDY! *Lars : BODY! *Boys : BUDDY! *Julie : Oh! 'Buddy'!
- Gerry: "I'm not going to camp with a bunch of fat loads!
- Harvey Bushkin: "Never let anybody sign your checks!
- Maury: I did NOT send you to 'Go-Kart' camp!
- Roy: Don't put twinkies on your pizza.
- Tony: "Kids: at age twelve, I weighed 319 pounds. I had bad skin, low self esteem, and no self respect. Now, I eat success for breakfast...with skim milk. Pounds are gonna fly, and fat is..... outta here, mister! And we're gonna do it TOGETHER!"
- Josh: "Oh, my, god."
- (Tony runs down aisle high-fiving unwilling kids)
- Kid: "I wanna go home!"
- Tony: "Step on the scale!"
- Josh: "Alrighty."
- Tony: "Step off the scale."
- Roy: "Lars? What kind of name is that? Where you from?"
- Lars: "... Far away."
- Roy: [gulps heavily]
- Josh: The candy belongs to Seymour Butts.
- Tony: Seymour Butts? Who's Seymour Butts? Who's Seymour Butts, hmm? WHO'S SEYMOUR BUTTS?!!
- Josh: Nobody's seen more butts than you, Uncle Tony!
- Tony: You picked the wrong man to mess with.
- Josh: Oh, I didn't know I was messing with a man!
- Lars: Now let's play a game to help us learn each other's names.
- Josh: (Making fun of Lars accent) Ve already know each odder's names.
- They never met a hot dog they didn't like... until now.
- They don't run the fastest. They don't jump the highest. But they sure are getting the last laugh.
- Everybody having fun?!
