Dewey Cox: Thank you, Elvis Presley!
Elvis Presley: [mumbles somthing incoherently and indecipherable, then leaves]
Dewey Cox: What the fuck was he talking about?

[to his pet chimpanzee] I've had it with all this crap! All you care about is fruit and touching yourself. Well, fuck you!

Edith: It's against the law to be married to two people at the same time!
Dewey Cox: What about if, if you're famous?

Dewey Cox: [to his mother] All I need is my music and someday, I'll make my masterpiece.
Dewey's Dad: The wrong kid died.
Dewey Cox: You see that, Momma? That was just unnecessary.

Dewey Cox: [singing] In my dreams, you're blowing me... some kisses.
Darlene: [singing] That's one of my favorite things to do.

...and remember it doesn't say Cox, unless I say it tastes like Cox.

Dewey Cox: Maybe you don't believe in me at all.
Edith: I do believe in you
[pause]
