    Vivica: I don't know, probably one of Cool Cat's friends.

  • Erik: I'm going to hold on to you for the rest of my life.

  • Dexter: Suppose you kept going another 18 billion light years, what if there's nothing out there? Suppose you kept going another trillion times further, so far out you see nothing. The light from the universe would be fainter than the faintest star. Infinitely cold. Infinitely dark. Sometimes if I wake up and it's dark, I get really scared, like I'm out there and I'm never coming back.

    Erik: Here, hold onto this when you sleep. And if you wake up and you're scared, you'll say, "Wait a minute. I'm holding Eric's shoe. Why the hell would I be holding some smelly basketball shoe a trillion light years from the universe? I must be here on earth, safe in my sleeping bag, and Eric must be close by."

  • Linda: [crying] I'm sorry.

    Erik: I'm sorry too. I shoulda tried harder.

    Linda: Tried what?

  • [Looking at a Playboy magazine]

    Dexter: This doesn't look like my mom.

    Erik: These aren't moms. These are women. This is what they're supposed to look like.

  • Dexter: This is stupid.

    Erik: Yeah? Well, about twenty years ago there was this guy. He noticed some mold growing on his bread and he started feeding it to people. Everybody said he was stupid. You know what it turned out to be? Aspirin!

  • Erik: What about your little brother when he fell off the monkey bars at school and got real hurt, they had to take him to the hospital. He could've caught something then.

    Tyler: But he didn't.

    Erik: But he could've. Then everybody would be calling him faggot and queer, and he'd get sick and die. And they'd write 'Homo' on his headstone. And when your mother went to bring him flowers, she'd see Little Eddie Horner Homo. But you know what the worst part about it would be? Probably before he died a bunch of assholes like you who ain't sick, thought it might be fun just to beat the shit out of him!

  • Linda: Dexter, is Erik staying for dinner?

    Dexter: Waka.

  • Dexter: [They are opening candy bars in the store] Are we allowed to do this?

    Erik: Of course. How else you supposed to know what you're gonna get.

  • Tyler: Hey, how much you pay for that faggot? You guys took a wrong turn. This is a 'No Homo' zone.

    Erik: I ain't a homo. And neither is he. He got it from a blood transfusion.

    Tyler: Well then what's that awful smell?

    Erik: Well see, we was walking across the grass when we accidentally stepped in your mother.

  • Linda: Do you have a girlfriend?

    Erik: Yeah I had a girlfriend but I had to dump her, spend, spend, spend!

  • Dexter: I'm not sure I understand why you have to try all this stuff too.

    Erik: Don't you know anything about scientific method?

    Dexter: A little.

    Erik: Well you have to have a control group, so you can see if the results are uniform.

  • Erik: Hey! What would you do if I come over there and whopped your ass?

    Dexter: How long would that take?

    Erik: 'Bout 10 seconds.

    Dexter: I'd wait till you're finished and then I'd continue working on my mud fort.

    Erik: You mean you'd just let me beat you up?

    Dexter: I'd try to stop you but I probably wouldn't be able to, I'm not very big.

    Erik: Well in that case it'd only take 5 seconds.

    Dexter: So is that what you're gonna do?

    Erik: Maybe later.

    Dexter: Hello? You still there?

  • Dexter: This one is the worst yet!

    Erik: My grandma says, the worse it tastes, the better it works.

    Dexter: Your K-Mart clerk grandma?

    Erik: ...Drink.

    Dexter: I gotta live somewhere.

  • Dexter: Where do bugs go to the bathroom?

    Dexter: [They make a tea from some found leaves] Tastes like crap.

    Erik: No shit, don't you know where bugs go to the bathroom?

  • Erik: So they think I'm a faggot. And now all of a sudden I'm yelling the same stuff at them. Well they know I'm not a faggot, 'cause a faggot wouldn't yell "faggot" back. That's why you should've yelled "faggot" too.

    Dexter: I wouldn't feel right saying that.

    Erik: Why the hell not?

  • [Reading a Playboy magazine]

    Dexter: It says she was born in 1975.

    Erik: She doesn't look that old.

  • Erik: We really took this moron Pony to the cleaners. The money we gave him won't pay for half his gas.

    Dexter: This boat is FROM New Orleans. He's on his way home.

    Erik: Now what makes you think that?

    [Walks to the back and peers down at the sign, "Floating Bayou, New Orleans, Louisiana"]

    Erik: He's not next door, he's behind me. I ain't never even seen him.

    Tyler: "I ain't never even seen him." Who are your neighbors then? Gomer Pyle and his brother Guber?

  • Erik: So long, faggots! You got brains the size of boogers, you homo queer bastards!

  • Erik: [Erik and Dexter were placed on an island, roasting hot dogs] This sucks.

    [His hot dog falls into the fire]

    Erik: Dammit! This isn't fair!

    Pony: What?

    Erik: I said THIS SUCKS!

    Pony: Ooh! "This sucks". "Gross, Man".

  • Erik: It's 9:00! When I gave you the money, you said we were going STRAIGHT to New Orleans!

    Angle: So you'll get there a couple days later, it's not gonna kill you.

    Erik: Shut up, ANGLE!

    Pony: Hey, YOU shut up, you little shit! Want me to swim over there and pound your ass?

  • Erik: Why can't I go see Dad?

    Gail: [thinks for a moment] Well, call him. If he says "yes," I'll put you on the next plane. You know, you and his little friend Cindy could go to the movies and get in for half price.

    Erik: She's 23, Mom.

    Gail: Oh, amazing. Old enough to drink.

    Erik: Yeah, but she doesn't.

    Erik: I wish that were the case darling. Nothing would make me happier. But this is a very serious matter, I must see your father

    Elsa Frankenstein: Since you put it that way I'll have to find him for you
