Hugh: He does eleven-million-and-four things.... except clean up after himself. That is my job. Kinda like a hobby really.

Carl: Do you guys think, you know sometimes in the right light...

Ms. Fowl looks--

Sheen: Hey, hold that thought. LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT'S A BIRD!

Carl: It's a plane!

Jimmy: It's a self-propelling android traveling at approximately 237 per hour.

Sheen: Oh. Sorry Carl, what were you saying about Ms. Fowl?

Carl: Nothing. Never mind.

Hugh: You're a chimney sweep. Oh that's just grand! like the guy in the movie! Do you sing and dance?

Professor Calamitous: That costs extra!
