Stan: (Walks in the Sci-Fi Convention) Good God! Who's manning the internet?!
Hayley: Roger, have you lost your mind? You know you can't let Steve's friends see you.
Roger: Oh, Hayley, they won't notice I'm not Francine. They're 13. They'll never take their eyes off my sweater meat.
Hayley: Look, don't go down there. I promise I'll help you find a safe way to socialize with humans.
Roger: That'd be great, Hayley. I feel so cooped up in this place. It's like a prison, except without the thrill of a daily cavity search. Did I say thrill? I meant fear.
Snot: I've never been to a baseball game before!
Stan: Yeah, well, wait 'til you hear who pulled some strings to get us into the Yankee locker room.
Stan: I said wait, pork chop! Whoa, whoa, ha. Where'd that come from? Uh, yes, Steve's friend, it was me.
Roger: Well, going to the beach as a Saudi exchange student was an awful idea.
Hayley: Well, I'm sorry no one talked to you, but we can't risk anyone seeing you.
Roger: Hayley, I'm a social creature. I need to mingle. You know, back home, I was a greeter at Falaxido. It's kind of like Wal-Mart, except when people work there for 18 years, they aren't proud of it.
Francine: Stan, stop grinding your teeth. It's not your fault that nut-job is still out there.
Stan: Forget national security! We have a real crisis! Our son is a geek!
Francine: So our son is a geek, who cares?
Stan: You knew? What else have you been hiding? Maybe the fact that he's not even my son. Please, please, tell me you slept with another man. Tell me it was in our bed and he was wearing my tie as a headband. And-and you grabbed the tie to gain leverage, and then apologized, embarrassed. But he said, "No, baby, you grab what you need to grab to keep doing what you're doing." Tell me! If you ever loved me, you'll tell me that's what happened!
Jackson: Hey, Stan. How come I've never seen this son of yours before?
Stan: Darnelle's been to the office a hundred times! Or are black people invisible to you, you racist bastard!
Stan: Look, Steve, if you could translate his notes, then I could capture this madman and be one of the cool agents again. Please, son, I really need your help.
Steve: Fine. I'll help you.
Barry: Look, Mr. Smith, your stress zits are going away. Yay!
Stan: Oh, God, I want to hit you!
Stan: Yeah, I like how you shortened it to Sci-Fi Convention so it's shorter to say. But next time, why don't you just say Sci-Fi Con? Or SF Con?
