We bought a zoo!

Rosie

Kelly: We need somebody who can take charge of this place, or else we and all these animals are gone.
Benjamin: So your question is...
Kelly: Why did you buy this place?
Benjamin: Why not?

At the risk of stating the obvious, you're insane.

Duncan

Benjamin: I think you're incredibly pretty - please don't take offense if I don't hit on you.
Kelly: I'd be offended if you did.

Benjamin: Hey Rosie, am I doing anything right?
Rosie: You're handsomer than the other dads. Lots of them don't have hair. So that's good.

I like the animals, but I love the humans.

Duncan

Benjamin: This place is perfect! Why didn't you mention it earlier?
Mr. Stevens: It's a bit complicated.
Benjamin: Complicated's okay. What's so complicated about this place?
Mr. Stevens: Well, you see, it's uhhh... (Lion roars, loudly) It's a zoo.
Rosie: Yay!
Mr. Stevens: Yay!

You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.
