Chris: Dad, don't you see? You're using the island to get out of your problems at home.
Peter: What are you talking about? Meg's right there.
Chief Oleki: This is a joyous occasion. You have engaged the entire village in dance. According to our customs, you are now married to my daughter. I couldn’t be happier.
Chris: Well, if you’re happy, then I’m happy, ‘cause after all…WHA-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-T?
Peter: Chris, I'm just as serious as when I saw Paul Reiser do stand-up.
(Flashback to Paul Reiser stand-up)
Reiser: So what's the deal with airline food? Is this stuff bad or what?
Peter: Well that's mean; those chefs work really hard.
Reiser: And what's with those Starbucks, huh? They're everywhere.
Peter: Uhh...a lotta people want coffee; that's supply and demand, it's the foundation of our entire economy Paul...
Reiser: And who do I talk to about those long lines at the atm? That's what I wanna know.
Peter: Not me, Mr. Reiser. Someone who has time to fritter away, but not me.
Chris: (in response to the villagers exposed genitals) Hahaha wow, this is just like Bible camp...only I'm not crying and trying to pretend I'm somewhere else.
Kevin Ferderline: Magic Mirror, how can I look like a douche-bag today?
Magic Mirror Peter: Well Kevin, uhm, I would say first of all don't shave or shower.
Kevin Ferderline: Ok, I won't.
Magic Mirror Peter: And uh, you just got out of bed right?
Kevin Ferderline: Yeah.
Magic Mirror Peter: I would say just go ahead and wear that tank-top all day.
Kevin Ferderline: Uhm, ok.
Magic Mirror Peter: Alright, so we covered the hygene, no collared shirts, uhm...ohh, and don't forget to walk around with an undeserved sense of accomplishment.
Peter: (drunk) Oh, look who's here, Mr. I-Don't-Have-Time-For-Your-Little-League-Game. Come here, you son of a bitch! (sobbing) Why do you close your eyes when we make love?!
