Ben Powell: Look, you can't afford a new car.
Steve Powell: But dad, neither can you but you drive one.
Ben Powell: I'm too poor to drive an old car.

Fess Dorple: You mean to tell me that the anchor you just saw down there a, a minute ago, i-it's not there any more?
Steve Powell: That's right.
Fess Dorple: Look kid, I got a surprise for you: all the anchors I know don't know how to swim.

Uncle George: Keep Steve handy, I have a little present for him.
Kate Powell: I hope it's money.
Uncle George: You wouldn't have said that if you were sober.

Dr. Frieden: Well, happy birthday.
Steve Powell: Thank you.
Dr. Frieden: I'm sorry I didn't bring you a present.
