Go To

  • When asked by the principal why Andy can't be more like his sister, Andy responds with, "It's a very expensive surgery."
  • In "Beat the Bomb", Andy mentions the popularity of the novelty hit "The Monkey Dance", remarking how he wouldn't be caught dead doing something dorky like that. Then this happens:
    Jen: What do you have against monkeys, Andy? I thought you really bonded with them that one time you got locked in the zoo.
    Andy:, it wasn't my most well thought-up prank. (cue Imagine Spot with Andy in the hands of a large monkey, visibly infatuated with him) Eeeengh, engh, Check, Please!!

  • In The Show Must Go On, Andy is punished with being put into kindergarten. When he does a stage act where the kindergarten children pretend to hate school, as a prank, this is what happens:
    (all kids are at desks behind a curtain) Students: We are perfect little students in a perfect little school. We do everything we're told and we never break a rule. And everything is perfect, just as perfect as can be. And if you don't believe us, you can take a look and see!
    (Danny opens the curtain) Boy: Reading, writing, 'rithmetic, every day it makes us sick. We're stuck in school and can't get out.
    Kids: Here our pleas! Hear us shout!
    Andy: (dressed up as the teacher) Good morning, students. Your teacher is here. Don't be frightened. There's nothing to fear! Ready to learn? Quiet, please. Now it's time for your ABC's (clangs on makeshift instruments, the kids get up and dance).
    Girl: A,B and C, makes me happy.
    Other Boy: D,E and G. We're so gloomy.
    Yet Another Boy and Other Girl: H,I and J. Things never go our way.
    First Girl: K,L and M. I agree with them.
    Second Boy: N,O and P. I have to pee.
    First Two Boys, A Third Girl: Q,R and S. We're in distress.
    Second Boy: T,U and V. I still have to pee.
    First Two Boys, First and Third Girls: W,X,Z, please set us free!
    Andy: You forgot the letters Y and F. Why? Because you get an F!"
    First Girl: Oh no!
    Andy: So, Mr. Smarty Pants, think you're invincible? I'm just gonna have to send YOU to the principal!
    First Girl: No! No! Anything but That!! I hear he eats children and that's why he's fat!
    Jen: I've got to stop this!" (leaves chair and runs)
    Danny: (ties her up so she ends up lifting herself up over the stage.)
    (the next time the curtains open, there is a giant nightmarish statue of Principal DeRosa's head with Andy inside and Danny pushing it.
    Andy in Head: I am the principal and I must eat. Come to me and be my beet.
    Children (jump into the head, screaming).
  • Busting had a few funnies.

    • His line about his Potty Emergency: "It's getting critical".
    • This Cringe Comedy scene when Lori comes along.
      Lori: "Andy Larkin? What a surprise! I was just talking with friends and we were rating everyone on a scale from 1 to 10 and guess what? You're an 8!
      Andy: (hears "urinate"). "What? Oh, hi, Lori."
      Lori: "Just shopping for an outfit for the school dance. (notices his Potty Dance and mistakes it for him being in pain) Are you OK?"
      Andy: (has the word "urinate" in his head and bends over, while doing more Potty Dancing.)
      Lori: "Are you all right? You look..."
      Andy: (is alright, but he's too embarrassed to admit he is going through a Potty Emergency) "It's been a crazy day! My belly hurts!" (continues groaning and Potty Dancing.)
      Lori: (freaking out) "Oh my gosh! You're in horrible pain! OK,OK, let's see. Do you want to sit down?
      Andy: (looks less like he's in pain but is still bent over and doing a Potty Dance)
      Lori: "No, I know, I'll go get you something to drink. A big cold drink!"
      Andy: (groans again, continues potty dancing)
      Lori: "Oh, here, try this! It's the most awesome ice tea you'll ever have. Ever. Have it. Go ahead! It'll help!"
      Andy: (thinks more drink will aggravate his Potty Emergency and isn't thirsty anyway.) "No, I can't drink that! No more" (acts scared and temporarily halts his Potty Dance)
      Lori: "OK then. You stay right here and I'll go get something else."

      Mr. Clopper: "What was that?"

      Mr. Clopper: "Incredible, kid. You speak the speech trippingly on the tongue!"
      Jen: "No, he doesn't! He's just playing a stupid game!"
