Bring your guns; bring your knives;
Save your children, and your wives,
We'll save our village and our lives!
Let's kill The Beast!

Listen, Goliath, we haven't know each other very long, and I know you don't have any good reason to trust humans... But you've got to trust somebody in this world. And I think you'd be better off with me than with Xanatos... You won't regret it.

What does anyone in this family know about being normal? The only normal one here is Jack-Jack, and he's not even potty-trained!

Wilbur: Pop quiz: Who have you met, and what have you learned?

Lewis: OK. Bud, Fritz, and Joe are brothers. Fritz is married to Petunia, and is she...?

[Makes a talking gesture with his hand]

Wilbur: Cranky? Yes.

Lewis: Tallulah and Laszlo are their children. Joe is married to Billie. Lefty is the butler. Spike and Dimitri are twins, and I don't know who they're related to.

Wilbur: Neither do we. Go on.

Lewis: Lucille is married to Bud, and your dad, Cornelius, is their son. What does Cornelius look like?

Wilbur: Tom Selleck.

Lewis: OK. Cornelius is married to Franny, and her brothers are Gaston and Art.

Wilbur: You're forgetting something.

Lewis: Forgetting? Oh, right! Wilbur is the son of Franny and Cornelius.

Wilbur: And nobody realized that you're from the past?

Lewis: Nope.

Wilbur: Whew.

Lewis: Thank you. Thank you. Hold your applause.

Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish, and someday you *will* be a real boy.
