Episode Quotes
Mark: You know, I might just be a mind reader when I grow up.
Lucas: Oh. Now you listen to me, boy. A man who learns to see and hear and think will beat a mind reader six ways to Tuesday. So when you're waiting to grow up, you just be a book reader. And that means...
Mark: Get in the house and do my homework. A man don't need to be a mind reader around here.
