    Rudy: No!
    Bob: Yeah, okay, you're right.

The Unnatural

    Gene: (holds Beta by the tail) Recognize this iguana?
    (Beta's body snaps off from his tail)
    Gene: Oh!
    Bob: Aah!
    Dr. Yap: (Gasp)
    Gene: Recognize this iguana tail?
    Tina: (wearing one of the frat boy's underwear outside her skirt) Or these briefs? Just curious they're mine now.
  • After Dr. Yap sucker punches Bob and runs away.

    Bob: It's okay, Dean, thanks. Have a seat. (to the audiences) You know what I like about my brother? He's nice, he... he wouldn't hurt a fly, must less, I don't know. I'm just naming animals here, (to Beta house under the stage) an iguana...
    Louise: (Tries to stop Bob from stopping the prank) No!
    Bob: Please have her removed. (back to the audiences) I want everyone in the room to know, (to Beta house) even people who might be under the stage right now, that the Alpha president would not hurt or kidnap an iguana, right?
    Dr. Yap: Maybe he would!
    Bob: No he wouldn't! Those are the kind of things our crazy oldest brother would do though. You know, (to Beta house) our crazy Asian dentist older brother would do. I'd point him out but I have a slow hand. (to Beta house) A slow hand.

Turkey in a Can
  • Everyone accusing Louise for putting the turkey in the toilet.
    Bob: Okay, so really! No one is gonna confess? Louise?
    Louise: It wasn't me.
    Linda: Louise?
    Louise: It wasn't!
    Bob: Fine! So no one, including Louise, wants to admit they did this? I'm giving you guys one more chance to confess, and then I'm grounding everyone, including your mom and Gayle!
    Linda: Bobby!
    Gayle: No, it's fine with me. I don't have any plans.
    Linda: Bobby it wasn't us. It was Louise, come on. Or, uh, maybe Gene.
    Gene: (gasps) How dare you! I put food in the toilet the way God intended. It had to be Louise.
    Louise: Unbelievable. Does everyone think I did this?
    (Everybody admits that they think it's Louise)
    Louise: Then I must be guilty. That's how it works, right!
    Gene: Yep. Perfect system.
    Bob: Well I have to go get another turkey...But I'm not forgetting this. I will figure out who did this. Even though I'm pretty sure we all still think it was Louise.
    Louise: Make sure you save room for Thanksgiving for the words you'll be eating!
  • Louise making a chart of the people who could have put the turkey in the toilet. She took pictures of them by surprise, like when Gene was eating a sandwich and Linda coming out from the showers.
    Louise: Dad, if I may, I taken the liberty of drawing up a little chart here. Let's review our suspects: Tina. She stand at nothing for some grown up stuff. Did her table envy drive her over the edge?
    Tina: No.
    Louise: Gene. He thinks there's only room for one bird at this table. A songbird!
    Gene: (gasps) Do-Re-Me?!
    Louise: Or was is Gayle? Dad went after her cats, she went after his turkey. Classic revenge tale.
    Gayle: Classic.
    Louise: Or maybe. Or maybe Linda. Oh, sweet Linda. A lost, suffering wife stuck in a bad marriage.
    Linda: Aw, poor thing.
    Bob: Lin!
    Linda: What? I got caught up in the story, she's good.
    Louise: And that leaves Louise. Who had no motive at all. Thank you, the end. Thank you.
    Tina: (claps, trying to act like an adult) What an imagination on this one, huh. Kids, hmm.
    Bob: So do you know who did this?
    Louise: Oh, no. Uh uh.
    Bob: Then what's the point of all this?
    Louise: Hold on, I just had an idea. (walks up to Gayle and then grabs and shakes her) Was it you Gayle, huh, confess?! Damn it, Gayle!
    Gayle: (screams)
    Louise: (turns to Tina and grabs and shakes her) Or you?! Confess you're guilty as hell!
    Tina: Uh...
    Bob: Louise.
    Louise: What?
    Bob: Stop.
    Louise: Why?
    Bob: This isn't working.
  • When the turkey is put in the toilet a second, Gayle accuses herself of doing because she didn't want to feel left out. Gayle then accuses Linda because she's untrustworthy due to an incident where Linda changed the channel when she left the room.
  • When Louise thinks she figures out who put the turkey in the toilet:
    Louise: At first I wondered, who could be mad enough at dad to do such a thing. I mean sure, no one likes him.
    Bob: Louise.
    Louise: And he smells. But then I realized that I was looking at the wrong motive. The person who put the turkey in the toilet was actually angry... at me!
    (Everyone gasps)
    Linda: Oh my, God!
    Teddy: What are we doing?
    Louise: You see, this person knew that I would be blamed and potently punished for this heinous crime. So, was it mom?
    Linda: Don't think so.
    Louise: Correct. It was not. Was it Gayle?
    Gayle: I don't know.
    Louise: No, it wasn't.
    Gayle: Oh.
    Louise: Which brings up to Gene and Tina. At first, I actually believed that Gene was too scared of the shower ghost to go in the bathroom at night. And I believed dad's theory that Tina was too mature to do something like this, if she was acting alone. But what if... (Dramatic Pause) they were working together.
    (Everyone gasps)
    Linda: I knew it.
    Gayle: I can see it, (pointing to Tina off-screen) that one has crazy eyes.
    (Later in the conversation)
    Louise: They worked together to frame me because I have been slowly stealing their allowances over the last five years.
    Tina: Wait...
    Tina & Gene: You have?
    Louise: Yes. Wait, you guys didn't know that?
    Tina & Gene: No.
    Louise: Oh, never mind. Because I haven't been.
    Tina: (relieved) Good.
  • Bob having to constantly buy a new turkey. Eventually leading the guy behind the counter to think he's trying to hit on him.

    Mr. Ambrose: Because having you cheers stolen five minutes before you perform is incredibly dramatic! Now you really have to scramble!
