- [has Friday the dog under his jacket] What's the matter? You've never seen a husky kid in a hoodie before?
- You sold a guy a rock in a box for $20.
- Andi: You know, I think we might be in a little over our heads.
- Dave: It's four-six; we're out dogged.
- Bruce: If you look at it, dogs have three basic needs. That's-- that's eating, sleeping, and peeing and pooping.
- Andi: That's four.
- Bruce: No, I think peeing and pooping is one.
- Heather: Uh, I've stepped in both and I have to disagree.

- Carl: Hey, there's my wah-wah pedal! No wonder my sound's been off.
- Lois: [in disbelief] Yeah, that's why.
- Carl: [he looks around the hotel] This crap is amazing.
- Lois: Yeah, 'cause it's our crap! They've been robbing us blind!
- [Lois and Carl have fallen down the poop chute into a dumpster full of bags of dog poop.]
- Lois: Where are we?
- Carl: We're in deep doo-doo.
- Carl: [runs into the kids' bedroom while brushing his teeth] Did I leave my whitening strips in here?
- [In the hotel for dogs, Lenny the dog is howling because the window blind is down.]
- Woman on cell phone: [talking to police] Yes, I'd like to call in a complaint about a howling dog.

- Woman on cell phone: Um...never mind.
- Lois: I'm suing you, I'm suing the state, I'm suing those kids, I'm suing the guy who invented shrink wrap, I'm suing everyone!
