'Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.' ~ Steve McCroskey

'Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?' ~ Captain Oveur
'The tower, the tower! Rapunzel, Rapunzel!' ~ Johnny

'No - that's just what they'll be expecting us to do!' ~ Rex Kramer
'Auntie Em, Uncle Henry, Toto! It's a twister! It's a twister!' ~ Johnny
