[From episode: From Here to Maternity]

Dwayne Nelson: Uh-Huh.

Dwayne Nelson: Uh-Huh.
Mama: And change it?
Dwayne Nelson: NUH-HUH!
Roger Thomas: Maria, would you like to dance?
Maria: I don't know any of your dancing.
Roger Thomas: Just stick with me.
[begins dancing irratically, poorly to music]
Maria: What do you call this dance?
Dee Thomas: The "Funky Clutz!"
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs: I can't help it if I'm fat! It runs in my family.
Dee Thomas: Nobody runs in your family... they all waddle!
Roger Thomas: [on phone] Hello, is this the Doobie Brothers? Which Doobie you be?
[Raj is pretending to be ill with memory loss for a practical joke on Dee]
Roger Thomas: I'm just going to go feed the cat...
Dee Thomas: We don't have a cat.
Roger Thomas: We don't? But what happened to the cat?
Dee Thomas: We never *had* a cat!
Roger Thomas: Then what's that playing in the bathtub with the pony?
Dee Thomas: Oh, *Raj*.
Roger Thomas: I'm going to go turn in.
Dee Thomas: Okay, say hi to the pony for me.
Roger Thomas: I will. You're such a nice little boy.
Dwayne Nelson: [enters and slams door] "Hey HEY, hey!"
Dee Thomas: Don't you see me studying? Why can't you come in like a gentleman?
Dwayne Nelson: [exits, returns, checks clothes and hair. Marches over like a 'gentleman'] "Hey. Hey. Hey."
Shirley Wilson: Okay, Raj, that'll be ninety-five cents please.
Roger Thomas: Here's a dollar and you can keep the change.
Shirley Wilson: Oh, Raj gave me a nickel! Not four pennies but a nickel! Raj gave the kid a nickel!
Roger Thomas: Here's an extra dime.
Shirley Wilson: Thank you very much there.
Dee Thomas: [Knock on door, Rerun and Dwayne enter. Dee is disappointed] We thought you were our father.
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs: Does Dwayne look like he could be your father?
Dee Thomas: [Dee chuckles] That's funny!
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs: Of course!
Dee Thomas: No, I mean the way your body shakes when you laugh!
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs: Ralph represents all that which is good, and pure - Ralph is a head... of lettuce.
Roger Thomas: You worship a HEAD OF LETTUCE?
[Dwayne hangs Rerun's pants over his IV bag]
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs: Dwayne, you hung my pants on my dinner.
[Dwayne looks confused but says nothing]
Roger Thomas: See this here tube, it goes straight down to Rerun's arm.
Dwayne Nelson: You mean they're feeding his arm? Does his mouth know about that?
