Good Burger (1997)
Kurt: You mess with Kurt, and you go in the grinder.
Dexter: Okay, now this "grinder" of yours. Is it a real grinder or is it just some kind of metaphor?

Dexter: Check it, Ed, it's the Mondo Idiot!
Ed: Oh, nice to meet you, Mondo Idiot, I'm Ed.
Kurt: Well, Ed, you better watch your butt man!
Ed: Okay.
[Tries and ends up spinning around and around]
Ed: I give up. There's no way a guy can watch his own butt.

[Dexter and Mr. Wheat's cars collide]
Mr. Wheat: My afro! My afro!
Dexter: WHY?
Mr. Wheat: Well, well, Brother Reed. You have messed up my afro.

Ed: What's wrong? Were you bitten by a sheep?
Dexter: What?
Ed: Did you lose your trousers?
[looks down at Dexter's legs]
Dexter: No! Look, you are an unusually bad guesser, so I'm just gonna go ahead and tell you why I'm upset. I gotta come up with $1900 to fix some jerk's car, another $800 to fix my mother's car, and I just got fired. Man! I can't believe Kurt fired me from Mondo Burger... and he yelled at me... and he assaulted me... and he made fun of me...
Ed: [after a long pause] Boy... you must really suck!

Dexter: So, Monique, what're you gonna do tonight after you lock up?

[dressed as a woman]
Dexter: Could you kindly point me in the direction of the little girl's room?

Dexter: Haven't I seen you somewhere before?
Ed: Ever been to Australia?
Dexter: No.
Ed: Me neither.

Ed: This is where I come to think... I think.
Dexter: Funny, I never figured you as much of a thinker.

Ed: You got it!
Dexter: Got what? I'm swinging from a dang pipe!

Mr. Wheat: I'm worried about you.
Dexter: I'm worried about you, too. Have you seen yourself lately? The 'fro, the boots and that jacket. You have a nice summer, Shaft.

Dexter: I could've sworn I've seen you somewhere before.
Ed: Maybe I'm someone famous like a baseball player or a pretty nurse.
Dexter: What? What are you talking about?
Ed: Okay, I give up. Who am I?
Dexter: I don't know *who* you are or *where* I've seen you before or *why* you think you're an attractive nurse.

[Ed dumped Trilampathol into the meat supply, causing Mondo Burger to be destroyed]
Ed: I thought that if I took the can, there was a good chance that I'd get caught, but even if I did get the Trilampathol to the proper authorities, Kurt would hire some powerful attornies who would dispute any charges brought against him or Mondo Burger by manipulating the legal system and the way America's court system is congested these days, it would take months to convict him of anything. So I thought I'd take matters into my own hands and dump the Trilampathol into the meat supply, making Mondo Burger a victim of its own foul play.
Dexter: You thought all that?
Ed: Yeah. I'm not stupid.

Dexter: I don't even remember what my dad looks like.
Ed: I don't remember what my dad looks like either, but at least I get to see him everyday.

Ed: You wanna see my secret place?
Dexter: That's not what I had in mind.

Dexter: [under his breath to a girl beside him] Kurt must look awfully strange naked.

Ed: [driving everyone home from a night out, and trying to entertain his unconscious date] ... Then when I was six, I said my first word. My mom thinks it was "trouser", but I think it was "tweezers". And then, I went to camp and fell down the sand dunes...
Dexter: [interrupting] Ed? Ed! She's still unconscious, bro.
Ed: Oh.

Dexter: Ed, I don't know how to say this...
Ed: Oh, well, you just go, "Thiiiissssssssssss."

Mr. Wheat: [after Dexter hits his car] Let me see your license.
Dexter: Uh, yeah, regarding my license... I'd give it to you... but you're gonna have to wait.
Mr. Wheat: For what?
Dexter: Uh... about a year... that's when I get one. That's when they put it in my hand.

Mr. Baily: What was our take today?
Fizz: 43 dollars and 9 cents.
Mr. Baily: That's it? Well, I suppose I could always feed my mother cat food.

Mr. Baily: No!

Deedee: Ed! There must be 50 customers out there! It's unbelievable! What do you put in that sauce?
Ed: Well, you start off with a little lemon juice and some ketchup...
[Dexter tackles him to the ground]
Ed: Um, look Dexter, I like you as a friend and all but...
Dexter: No! Listen to me carefully.
Ed: Okay.
Dexter: Do not tell anyone the recipe to your sauce.
Ed: Oh, well first you start off with a little lemon juice and some ketchup...
Dexter: *Stop It*! Stop talking. *Never* tell anyone the ingredients of your *sauce*.

Ed: [peering in the kitchen window at Mondo Burger] What's that stuff they're putting in the burgers?
Dexter: I don't know... but I'll bet you that's what makes those burgers grow so big.
Ed: We should get some of that stuff for Good Burger.
Dexter: No, man! That stuff's got to be illegal.

Dexter: [on the roof of Mondo Burger] How do you expect me to get up there?

Ed: [to the dog] Here, try a Good Burger.

Ed: You see! I told you there was something wrong with Mondo Burger!
Dexter: [about the dog and the Mondo burger] He's definitely sensing something he doesn't like.

Ed: I will never forget you, Dexter Reed, in my head, or in my heart.
[hugs him]
Ed: Goodbye my friend!
Dexter: Uh, Ed, I'm not going anywhere.
Ed: [pulls back, nonchalant] Oh.

Ed: And that's Otis, he's 77 years old and worked here longer than anyone.
Otis: I should've died years ago.
Dexter: Tough break.

Dexter: I never took you for much of a thinker.
Ed: Oh yeah, I think about all kinds of stuff: squirrels, cardboard boxes, things that are sticky.
Dexter: I bet you don't have one real problem, do you?
Ed: I have six toes on my left foot. What kind of problems do you have, Dexter?
Dexter: Other than the ones YOU caused? A lot. Most of them started when I was a kid when my parents split up.

Ed: [with 2 grapes up his nose] Look! I'm Grape Nose Boy! Bloobity Bloobity Bloobity Bloobity

Ed: Oh, I'll tell you.
[stares at his wrist]
Otis: It's 6 A.M., and Good Burger opens at 10.
Dexter: That means we've only got four hours to warn them!
Otis: But how are we gonna get out of here?

Dexter: [busted at Mondo Burger disguised as two women, get their disguises ripped off and Dexter's wearing a T-shirt and boxers, Ed's wearing a teddy, Kurt's henchmen laugh] Yeah yeah, laugh it up, but when those people find out that you've been putting illegal stuff in their food, you're going to jail!

[Siren wails]
Kurt: I don't understand. I don't know what happened.
