Ellen: Sweetheart, wake up. Tutti, we've got to do something.
Alvin: Oh, please, not again!

Alvin: Oh, Betty Ahern has been a thorn in my side for years. Listen, if she starts to get a little too pushy, you just remind her of the time she was a topless dancer at the Boomerang Room out on Route 5.
Ellen: She was?!
Alvin: Well sure. You've never heard of Bouncin' Betty Who Moves Like Spaghetti?

Mama: Well Tutti, Old Lincoln was right when he said, "The guy that knows most of the poop can lead the troop."
Ellen: Abraham Lincoln said that?
Mama and Alvin: No, Sam Lincoln.
Alvin: The man was an imbecile.
