Memorable Quotes

Bob: That's a Time-Out chair? This whole time, I thought it was just Gabe's chair.
Mrs Dabney: What was the word? (Bob whispers it to her)

Mrs Dabney: Uh! (Slaps Bob and stands up.)
Bob: I wasn't saying it to you!

Mrs Dabney: You sure won't be saying it twice! (walks out)
I can't believe we never found out who taught Charlie that word.

Amy: (slams on brakes) How about a turn signal, you..(Car horn honks)

Bob: Case closed.
