Episode Quotes
Marty: So, guys, uh, what's doin'?
Larry: Every year since we've arrived, on the last day of your October, tiny devils have gathered at our main gate en masse, ready to invade. In the past, our gate has kept them at bay. Should they breach it...
Jackie: We will rain hellfire and fury upon them.

visual: Marty, Debbie, Larry and Jackie have entered Amber's room unannounced.
Amber: Is knocking too hard for you? Is it too hard to make a fist and bang it against a door? Learn to knock!
Larry: (aside to Jackie) She is full of piss and vinegar, this one.

Larry: (to Marty and Debbie) You claim that Halloween-ween is safe. You claim that we may confidently open our gates on October the 31st, but how can you be sure that the people wearing costumes are not concealing weapons... For murder?
visual: Zabvronians gasp.
Reggie: Seems like a stretch.
Larry: Whose side are you on?

Larry: (to the Zabvronians) To your homes! Give the tiny humans the crap they desire!

Abby: Look how much they gave me!
Debbie and Marty: Wow! Oh, boy!
Abby: Yeah. She said, "aw, you don't have any candy yet," and then she gave me all of this candy. Here. You hold it. That way, every person will think I have no candy. That way, they'll give me more.
Debbie: So you're saying you need us for your candy scam?
Abby: Huh?
Marty: It sounds like you're saying you need your parents in order to cheat adults out of candy.
Abby: Listen, are you in or not?!
Debbie: Baby!
Marty: Of course we're in.
