"Dinosaurs: The Son Also Rises (#3.11)" (1993)
Earl: I won't be home for dinner, Roy and I are going down to the mall to cruise the food court...
Robbie: Isn't it a work night?
Earl: But Roy is going.
Robbie: Well I'm not Roy's father. Oh I see, you're testing me. Well I think you're at an age where you're mature enough to make your own decisions.
Earl: Oh cool. Have some wax lips.

Baby: Robbie. Um, tell me a story.
Robbie Sinclair: Life stinks, The End.

Earl Sinclair: I thought I told you to mow the lawn.
Robbie Sinclair: I told you, the lawn mower is broken.
Earl Sinclair: Scissors. Cut it with scissors.
Robbie Sinclair: Oh come on.
Earl Sinclair: Geez you kids have it too easy. When I was your age we didn't have lawn mowers, we didn't have scissors, we had to get down on all fours and graze like a cow.
Robbie Sinclair: Dad.
Earl Sinclair: Mooooo.

Robbie Sinclair: Dad, I'm here with a girl. It might help if you didn't make me look like the world's biggest weenie.
Earl Sinclair: Well pardon me, Mr. Dignified, I didn't mean to belittle you as you were about to hit the ball up the clown's pants.

Robbie Sinclair: Everyday it's the same thing. He comes home and says "Franny, get me a beer." And then he yells at me.
Earl Sinclair: Oh not true. Sometimes I yell at you first.

Man Over P.A.: Attention, Robbie Sinclair, your father is here.
Robbie: That's it, I'm gonna tell him where to get off this time.
Man Over P.A.: He looks really steamed.
Robbie: Gulp.

Robbie: Can I have a moment's peace? I was at work all day.
Fran Sinclair: Robbie, you are the supreme male. These are your responsibilities now. If you can't handle them, maybe you should turn them over to someone with more maturity.
Earl: [wearing goofy glasses] Whoa, Fran, I can see your underwear.

Fran Sinclair: The baby flushed his caveman doll down the toilet and now it's backed up.
Robbie: So?
Fran Sinclair: So, we don't have a working bathroom.
Robbie: We live in a forest! There's nothing BUT bathrooms! Trees and bushes as far as the eye can see!
Fran Sinclair: Fine, if you won't fix it, I'll just call a plumber.
Robbie: Oh no, you're not spending my hard-earned money on some over-priced wrench jockey.
Fran Sinclair: Robbie!

Robbie: [Robbie confronts Earl at the miniature golf course] I am fed up! I HAVE HAD IT! I can't take it anymore! There's bills... and... and the taxes... and the baby... and...
Roy Hess: Maybe we should let the next foursome play through.
Earl: [Robbie is crying] There, there, son. I know exactly what you're trying to say. You have had a rough time being supreme male, what with the job and the household and the responsibilities way past your years.
Robbie: And the baby... hit me on the head... with a big heavy...
Earl: Round thing, yeah. And you want me to take over again as head of the household so you can go back to being the carefree teenager again. Is that right?
Robbie: Yes, Daddy.
Earl: Well forget it! Now get off my lane, I'm putting for birdie.
Robbie: But you have to take over!
Earl: Not a chance! I'm having the time of my life and nothing's gonna make me give it up.
P.A. Announcer: Earl Sinclair, more bad news. Your wife's here.
Roy Hess: Gee, this really is a family fun center.

Robbie: Mommy, tell him to be supreme male again.
Earl: Can't make me.
Fran Sinclair: Alright, that's enough from both of you.
[to Earl]
Fran Sinclair: He can't handle the household, and it's time you started acting like an adult again.
Earl: Don't wanna!
Fran Sinclair: We're going right down to the Office of Male Supremecy and get you reinstated as head of the house.
Earl: [childishly] Why should I?

Robbie Sinclair: What is it?
Charlene Sinclair: So, I was wondering, could you help find the continent of Pangaea on this map?
[Charlene opens the map which shows the continent of Pangaea]
Robbie Sinclair: You're grounded for a week.
Charlene Sinclair: For what?
Robbie Sinclair: *Stupidity*!
Charlene Sinclair: You can't ground me for that!
Robbie Sinclair: Are we trying for a month?

Robbie: Dad, this was supposed to be a big fun day and Mom's trying to kill it for all of us. Who's the boss around here?
Earl: Yeah. Fran?
Fran: [yelling] What?
Earl: She is.

Robbie: I want to win this fair and square.
Spike: How have you managed to stay alive so long?

Howard Handupme: [In Robbie's thoughts] And, on this unexpected holiday from school, thousands of very cool guys and totally hot babes spent the day frollicking in the ash. Having what many describe as "the MOST FUN EVER."
Robbie Sinclair: Alright, that's it. I'm going outside.
Fran Sinclair: [In Robbie's thoughts] I want you to stay in your room, finish that assignment, and have no fun for the rest of your life.
Robbie Sinclair: Isn't she terrific? My mother, ladies and gentlemen?
Earl Sinclair: [In Robbie's thoughts] How about a hand for the guy paying these heating bills?
Fran Sinclair: Earl, get out of Robbie's thoughts and pay those bills.
Earl Sinclair: Yes, dear. Sheesh.

Robbie Sinclair: Gee, Dad, I thought you loved the dome. You said it was going to make us rich.
Earl Sinclair: Yeah well now it's going to make us need plastic surgery and a relocation program.
Robbie Sinclair: You can't possibly believe that.
Baby: [wearing a disguise] Not the baby!

Robbie Sinclair: The competition looks pretty tough, why did you see Billy Melman's project where you clap and a lamp turns on? I mean THAT'S genius. How am I going to compete with that?
Spike: Oh, well you know Billy, he uses substandard material. You know, the kind that tend to shatter when broken over his head. Yo, Billy, let me see that lamp!

Robbie Sinclair: Dad, you're not being rational.
Earl Sinclair: Oh and I suppose the crazed mob on the front lawn isn't rational either?

[Thinks of a tire pump trying to pump up a sneaker]
Robbie Sinclair: Naw what a stupid idea.

Roy Hess: Fine!
Earl: Fine!
Roy Hess: Good!
Robbie Sinclair: [reading from the book of dinosaurs] Only by howling do we defeat the dark spirit which will turn dinosaur... against dinosaur... oh!

Robbie Sinclair: What could possibly happen?
Kyle: Earthquake!
Gus: Flood!
Sid: Plagues!
Robbie Sinclair: This isn't the Dark Ages, this is 60 million B.C. Now why don't we try not howling for once? Nothing's going to happen.
[the moon disappears]

Robbie: How could not howling at the moon bring an end to our days on earth?
Earl: Because if you don't howl, I'll kill ya.

Robbie Sinclair: [about Blarney] He's terrible, Mom. I can't imagine a worse role model for a child.
Earl Sinclair: [from other room] Ouch! Darn it. I hate you, you stupid toy!

Earl Sinclair: [presenting the toy car wrapped in paper] Son, this present is for good little boys, you can have it, as long as you promise to be good.
Baby Sinclair: [Faking Innocence] I'll be good... I promise.
[a golden halo appears on top of baby's head and a twinkle happens in his eye]
Fran Sinclair: It's not right, Earl, bribing a child to behave!
Earl Sinclair: ...and if it works?
Fran Sinclair: It's a short sighted, stop gap, quick fix solution...
Earl Sinclair: You don't have to sell me on it.
[Fran grunts irritably]
Earl Sinclair: Look son, a CAR!
Baby Sinclair: [Excited] A car, oh boy!
Robbie Sinclair: Gee Dad, you never bribed me with anything neat like that.
Earl Sinclair: You were never rotten enough to deserve it.

Blarney: [singing with kids named Jeff and Tim] Okay here we go. I am Blarney I love you. E-I-E-I-O. And if you're nice you'll love me, too. E-I-E-I-O.
Robbie Sinclair: Well, it does seem to have quiet him down a little.
Blarney: [still singing] With a love love here, and a love love there, here a love there a love, everywhere a love love.
Fran Sinclair: It's interesting, he strikes a chord with children. Something about Blarney inlooses the purest feelings of warmth and affection.

Blarney: [Launches the bottle at the TV] AAAAAHHHH!
Baby Sinclair: [TV blows up and Fran and Robbie were shocked in surprise] DIE SUM, DIE!

Officer Bettleheim: What?
Charlene Sinclair: Did I mention Robbie scratched the car when he rammed into your motorcycle?
Robbie Sinclair: *You're dead*!
Officer Bettleheim: My... my *what*!

Robbie Sinclair: So, Dad, when do I get to take her for a spin?
Earl Sinclair: It's a new car, son, it's not mean to be driven.
Robbie Sinclair: But you just let Mom take it.
Earl Sinclair: Son, your mother is a capable, responsible...
[hears engine roar]
Earl Sinclair: WHAT? WAIT FOR ME!

Robbie Sinclair: There is something I've been thinking about and I wouldn't mind hearing what the family thinks. I'm a little confused about the nature of reality.
Earl Sinclair: ...No kidding?
Robbie Sinclair: Right, like if a tree falls in the forest and nobody's around to see it or hear it, did it actually fall?
Fran Sinclair: Ooh, now that IS intriguing. Who can build on that?
[Earl gets up and heads out of the room]
Fran Sinclair: Where are you going?
Earl Sinclair: I'm going to see if the tree fell. I'll be back in a couple of days.

[Fran gasps]

Robbie Sinclair: What about fire?
Earl Sinclair: Vegetable.
Charlene Sinclair: What about water?
Earl Sinclair: Water is the opposite of fire, which we have previously established as a vegetable. What's the opppsite of a vegetable? Fruit. So, water is a fruit. Fruit is not a vegetable, so it has to be either an animal or a rock. We know it's not an animal, therefore, fruit is a rock.
Charlene Sinclair: Daddy, I asked you about water.

Earl Sinclair: Robbie, ask me another one.
Robbie Sinclair: Dad, you haven't gotten one right yet.
Earl Sinclair: I'm finding my rhythm. Go ahead, ask me. Ask me.
Robbie Sinclair: Okay, okay, what can fish do under water that dinosaurs can't?
Earl Sinclair: Sing.

Earl Sinclair: We can't breathe under water? That stinks.

Earl Sinclair: As you can see, I have separated all known dinosaur wisdom into three categories: animal, vegetable, rocks.

"Dinosaurs: Refrigerator Day (#2.12)" (1991)
Robbie Sinclair: [watching a holiday themed paint commercial on TV] Using Refrigerator Day to sell paint kind of cheapens the holiday, doesn't it?
Charlene Sinclair: Oh who's to say? That's one of those big confusing moral issues.

Robbie Sinclair: We could get the fridge back.
Charlene Sinclair: [sarcastically] Oh right, Rob, let's just go to the store and swipe it, I'll take my extra large purse.

Earl: This is terrible. I've failed my family. I'm nothing. I'm dirt.
Robbie Sinclair: You're not dirt, Dad.
Earl: No, you're right, I'm beneath dirt. I look up to dirt. I wish I was dirt. Dirt laughs at me!
Fran Sinclair: Earl, it'll be okay.
Earl: No it won't, Fran. This is gonna be the worst Refrigerator Day EVER.

Charlene Sinclair: Whoa! Refrigerator Day without presents is like... like two things that go together, only one of them isn't there, so the other one doesn't have the other thing to go with it!
Robbie Sinclair: Who says you're not deep?

"Dinosaurs: Hurling Day (#1.3)" (1991)
Robbie Sinclair: [looking at old pictures] Is this me?
Grandma Ethyl Phillips: Yeah, that's you on your Grandpa Louie's back, hitting him on the head with a pot.

Robbie Sinclair: Mom, it used to be that old dinosaurs couldn't hunt for food, now we have supermarkets, it used to be that old dinosaurs slowed down the pack, now we live in houses. So isn't throwing Grandma off a cliff just a waste of a perfectly good old lady?

Robbie: Dad, after you throw grandma into the tar pit, is there life after that?
Earl: For me there is.

Earl: [about hurling Ethyl] Without this, my life means nothing.
Robbie Sinclair: Well then I guess my life must mean nothing, because when your time comes, I'm not throwing you.
Earl: Why the hell not?
Robbie Sinclair: Because you're my father, just because you get old doesn't mean you stop being my father.

Pearl Sinclair: He told you I was in jail?
Charlene Sinclair: Well he said you were either dead or in prison so...
Pearl Sinclair: Oh that daddy of yours has got some sense of humor.
Charlene Sinclair, Robbie Sinclair: Not really.

Pearl Sinclair: Now wouldn't that be a hoot? If I got married and settled down here. Wouldn't that put a knot in Earl's britches?
Charlene Sinclair: Yep, all the more reason to do it.
Robbie Sinclair: Dad's been a real jerk lately.
Baby Sinclair: He's no fun. I want YOU to be my daddy.
Pearl Sinclair: Oh, I know you mean that in a sweet way.
Baby Sinclair: No I don't.

Fran Sinclair: Earl, all they were doing is listening to a little music.
Pearl Sinclair: Yeah.
Earl Sinclair: Tonight! But next they'll want to join a band and live on the road like gypsies. Traveling from town to town, always staying one step ahead of the law. Meeting colorful rogues and scallywags and getting into all kinds of scrapes.
Robbie Sinclair: Gee, I was thinking about college but this sounds better.
Charlene Sinclair: Would any of those scallywags be like, cute boys?
[Fran and Pearl laugh]
Earl Sinclair: See what you've done? You've corrupted them!
Pearl Sinclair: Oh why don't you hush up?

Robbie Sinclair: Whoa, we'll be good, we'll be good.

[raises the remote above his head]
Robbie Sinclair: Which one's 8?
Fran Sinclair: What? Oh give me that!

Fran Sinclair: Robbie, show your father your report card.
[goes to answer phone]
Earl Sinclair: Hit me with it.
Fran Sinclair: [on phone] Charlene? What?
Earl Sinclair: [reading report card] F, F, F, F, F, M... M? What's an M?
Robbie Sinclair: Well, halfway through grading me, the teacher forgot the alphabet.
Fran Sinclair: Earl! It's Charlene, she needs a ride home.
[hangs up]
Fran Sinclair: She can't remember where we live!
Earl Sinclair: That doesn't prove a thing, she never was the brightest kid.
Fran Sinclair: Earl, you've got to put smarter shows on the air! Everyone's gotten TOO dumb!

"Dinosaurs: I Never Ate for My Father (#2.3)" (1991)
Earl Sinclair: You stay away from my son you pea pusher.
Robbie Sinclair: Dad, so what if they eat a few peas? They're proud of who they are. You know, I have a dream that someday a dinosaur will be judged, not by the contents of his lunchbox, but the quality of his character.

Robbie Sinclair: Charlene, I'm gonna bite your head off!
Charlene Sinclair: Ooh, he's not a carnivore, he's a cannibal!

Robbie Sinclair: I'm not interested in your stupid locker room stories.
Spike: [takes out notebook] Okay, last boyfriend transferred to another school, never registered, never showed up. Boyfriend number two, allegedly went off to join the army, no record of his enlistment. And boyfriend number three, Josh Meltzer, whereabouts, who knows?
Robbie Sinclair: What're you implying?
Spike: I think we both know what's going on. There's a girl like that in every school, a little hungrier than the others, she goes through boyfriends, she chews them up...
Robbie Sinclair: And spits them out?
Spike: Naw, she digests them. Face it, Scooter, your girlfriend is an eater!

Robbie Sinclair: Spike heard this idiotic rumor that Wendy eats all her boyfriends.
Charlene Sinclair: [laughs] Everyone knows that.
Robbie Sinclair: What do you mean everyone?
Charlene Sinclair: Everyone! They're all surprised you lasted this long, she must be dieting.
Robbie Sinclair: Why didn't you say anything?
Charlene Sinclair: I was going to. See, do nails, pick up eyeshadow, warn Robbie his life is in danger, see? It was next on my list.

Earl Sinclair: What reason could you possibly have for breaking up with this girl?

Baby Sinclair: ...maybe...
[continues straining]
Robbie Sinclair: He's goin'.
Charlene Sinclair: Definitely.
Earl Sinclair: Are you going or not?
Baby Sinclair: [strains than sighs relieved] Not anymore.
Earl Sinclair: Alright, that's it! We're going back up to the bathroom and we're not coming out until one of us is potty trained!

Fran Sinclair: I've changed every diaper in this house for the past 15 years and now, it's YOUR turn.
Earl Sinclair: Well, we're skipping my turn.
Baby: I'm not getting any fresher over here.
Robbie Sinclair: You know, Dad, Mom's got a point. It is kinda sexist to expect her to change all the diapers because she's a female.

[hands him diaper]
Earl Sinclair: Knock yourself out.

"Dinosaurs: A New Leaf (#2.17)" (1992)

Robbie Sinclair, Charlene Sinclair: No more throwing our Lives away.

Spike: Hey, it was better in the old Days, when a Male came of Age, He challenged his Father for Supremacy.

Spike: the Death!

Robbie Sinclair: Um... wouldn't that be My Mom?
Spike, Robbie Sinclair: [Realization Strikes em Both] EWWWWWW!

Fran Sinclair: [Regarding Robbies Spikes] Look, it's getting Late Earl, why Can't we just discuss this after Dinner?
Earl: He's not Eating Dinner in My House with those Spikes!
Robbie Sinclair: Obviously, I can't do anything Right. My Room's a Mess, My Spikes are too long, and My Posture Stinks! I mean... why is it that everything that I do is so wrong?
Earl: I was gonna ask You the same thing...
Robbie Sinclair: You know, I never asked to be Hatched in this Stupid Family.

Earl Sinclair: What's so special about this Captain Action Guy?
Baby Sinclair: He's my hero!
Earl Sinclair: What's he got that I don't?
Baby Sinclair: A TV show! Turn it back on!

Robbie Sinclair: Well, he's a superhero, so he was probably born on a distant planet to a race of highly intelligent creatures.
Charlene Sinclair: Well I heard he lives at the bottom of the sea in a dome kingdom made entirely of diamonds and big pearls.
Fran Sinclair: Charlene, where'd you hear that?
Charlene Sinclair: I have sources.

Robbie Sinclair: You've destroyed the global food chain! No plants means no food at all!
Earl Sinclair: Nonsense! There's a wide variety of commercial snack foods which have virtually no natural ingredients.
Fran Sinclair: Earl, we can't live on Ho-Ho's!
Baby Sinclair: I can!

Robbie Sinclair: Dad, you're going to coat the entire continent with poison? Isn't there some safer alternative?
Earl Sinclair: Like what?
Charlene Sinclair: Well, trim back the vines as much as we can, live with a little discomfort, and hope that nature eventually restores the balance.

Fran Sinclair: Me?
