Frankie, the Big Kahuna: But what does "we" mean?

Bobby: [impossibly sarcastic] I think it's the plural form, meaning "more than one." Would you like me to conjugate that for you, Pop? Do you know what "conjugate" means, Dad?

Annette: And your point is?

Troy: My point is I want to buy you... two of them.

Frankie, the Big Kahuna: You look familiar. Have we met?

Willy Gilligan: I don't think so. I've been away for a long time.

Frankie, the Big Kahuna: Where? Prison?

Willy Gilligan: No, worse then that. A tropical island in the Pacific. There were chicks there, but you couldn't touch them. Wanna hear about it?

Frankie, the Big Kahuna: No!

Willy Gilligan: You know, I lived with a guy for years. A real genius. He could take a couple of these pineapples or a couple of coconuts with some strings and wire and make a nuclear reactor. But he couldn't fix a two-foot hole in a boat. Wanna hear the rest?

Frankie, the Big Kahuna: No!

Willy Gilligan: Maybe the Midwest is for me.

[first lines]

Bobby: 45 years ago, my parents were the most popular teenagers in America. It's true. My dad was a teen idol. Girls threw themselves at him. Unfortunately, this was 1962 and he had to throw them back. When Dad wasn't singing he spent his time on a surfboard. They called him The Big Kahuna. When I was born, Dad wanted to call me Little Kahuna. Luckily, he settled for Bobby. As for Mom, she joined that stupid cult club called the Mouseketeers. She became the first pin-up queen for boys under 12. Anyhow, they got married and moved to Ohio right after the accident. Don't get him started on the surf accident. We have this nightly ritual called dinner and the accident story. Let me spare you this... 20 years ago while surfing this huge wave knocked the Kahuna right off his board and he's never been the same since.
