Michael: Where is your dad?
Maeby: He left dressed all westerny. You can leave me out of that part, too.

Buster: He just wants to see boys’ Linuses.

Tobias: You know, Michael, perhaps I should buy you that tape recorder. Do you have any idea how often you say the word “afraid”?

Tobias: And I apologize for that. I thought it was a pool toy.
