    • "...big kid sing good."
  • T.J. mimicking Principal Prickly's voice with a voice modulator:
    "And I want you all to know that I have a fat, saggy butt I scratch every hour, on the hour."
  • Benedict's Motive Rant:
    Benedict: I've always thought about you! How you embarrassed me! How you humiliated me! How you destroyed my relationship with Muriel Finster! The only woman I ever loved!
    T.J.: That part still grosses me out, sir.
    Prickly: Shhhh!
  • "Okay that right there... that was messed up."
  • Vince getting in line to board the bus to baseball camp, only to see the Ashleys in line, too.
    Vince: Don't tell me you Ashleys are going to baseball camp!
    Ashley T.: Eww, as if!
    Ashley A.: Cheerleading camp is like, across the lake, duh!
    Vince: I hope it's a big lake.
  • The scene where T.J. is upset about not having his friends around during the vacation, when the audience is introduced to Becky, who comes into the room right before going to work.
    Becky: Bye Mom, bye Dad...bye T-jerk
    Mrs. Detweiler: Now Becky, be nice to your brother. He's feeling a little S-A-D right now.
    T.J.: I can spell, Mom.
  • The gang finding out that the villians weren't using a laser on the moon, but a tractor beam.

    Spinelli: Not a tractor, you goomba; a tractor beam!
  • The kids at the wrestling camp's version of "Kumbaya"
    Someone's wrestling, my lord, kumbaya/Heads are smashing, my lord, kumbaya/Bones are cracking, my lord, kumbaya...
  • The scene where they are hiding in the vent. Mikey lets out a burp so loud that not only does it shock everyone that hears it, it blows their cover too. What Benedict says sounds both funny and badass.
  • When T.J. witnesses Principal Prickley seemingly being vaporized, and immediately runs home to tell his parents.
    T.J. (running): Mom! Mom!
    (runs smack into the sliding glass door to his house)

    T.J.: Mom! There are these evil bad guys at the school, and they've got a laser beam, and—!
    Mrs. Detweiler: Oh, T.J.! That bonk on the head must have rattled your little brain!
    T.J.: But Mom!
    Mrs. Detweiler: Wait right here! I'll go get the baby thermometer and the petroleum jelly!
    T.J.: Uh... Dad! Dad! (runs off to the garage, where Mr. Detweiler is working on his car)
    Mr. Detweiler: What is it, boy?
    T.J.: Those bad guys at the school have a laser beam, and they're lifting a safe, and—!
    Mr. Detweiler: T.J., did you run into the sliding glass door again?
    T.J.: No, but... (beat) Well, yeah, but... (beat) GAH! (runs off again)
    Mr. Detweiler: Come back! Your mom's gonna want to take your temperature!
