Dad: Yes, we're well aware of his [Calvin's] reputation.
Fortune Teller: And yet, you do not know him at all.
Dad: I'm sorry?

Carter: Wait, the one below the school?
Annabel Usher: Below the school? Och, I pure hate it when I repeat things.
Carter: Uh, I kind of... heard about this full-on Illuminati vault. Like, the seniors might have tried to crack the lock a few times - or something. You can see it through the floorboards in the Old Block... I heard.

Annabel Usher: Tell me you're pulling my leg.
Headmaster Montag: No... well, I couldn't discount a manifestation of unconscious telekinesis.

Bullock: Smith, get the hell out of there! (to valet) Green Taurus, chop-chop. (to Stan) The problem isn't that she'd lose her free will. The problem is she's going to turn on her handler!
Stan: But I'm her handler.
Bullock: (to valet) NO, A GREEN TAURUS! EL TAURUS VERDE! (to Stan) Smith, Hayley was trained to be unstoppable killing machine, and she won't snap out of it until you're dead!
(the valet arrives with the car; Bullock throws him out and drives away)
