Bobby Keller: Dinger! Dinger, wake up for a minute. I gotta talk to you, Buddy.

Bobby Keller: [Coleman as Bobby] Why do we have to take something so far that it can't be taken back? I'll tell you why - because we're young, and when you're young, every little thing seems so big.

Dinger: [sitting alone in Joel's car, waiting] Wow... shit's gotten weird. Me, Dinger - this unbelievably-looking guy - is sitting out here, freezing my ass off in some butt-ugly red Mustang. Well, now I have ample time?

[looks down at wrist]

Dinger: I don't have a watch, I never had a watch. Why did I look at my wrist? At the dance. Dancing perfectly. With a hot chick. She wanted me. I know she wanted me. Well, every girl wants me. I should be in Hawaii drinking a piña colada, looking at some Hawaii chick. "Hello, honey."

[Bobby comes home with a busted lip and a black eye]

Gus Keller: Look at this.

Kit Keller: Oh!...

Gus Keller: Can you imagine what he's done now? Ask him if the police are very far behind him.

Kit Keller: It's those no good friends of his.

Bobby Keller: [Coleman as Bobby] The police are not behind me and it's not my friends, okay? My friends won't beat me up like this.

Gus Keller: Ask him if I'm gonna get sued. Check out if he's got any teeth left. I can't afford the dental bills.

Bobby Keller: [Coleman as Bobby] You know, it's no wonder I'm so screwed up! I mean, look at you guys. You don't even talk to me. I'm your son, remember? Why don't you ever give me the benefit of the doubt? You don't even ask me if anything's wrong. You don't even ask me if I'm hurt. I mean, what's the matter with you? You don't understand what it's like to be a kid in today's society! I'm trying my hardest! I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I screamed. It's just really upsetting. I-I try to do everything I can and I'm studying hard and I'm going to do good on my SATs on Saturday. I'm going to.

Gus Keller: Yeah. Sure.

Bobby Keller: [Coleman as Bobby] I mean, I'm working really hard. I just need you to help me. I cannot do this without you.

Gus Keller: Okay.

Kit Keller: Okay.

Bobby Keller: [Coleman as Bobby] Goodnight, uh... Goodnight, Gus and... Kit. Goodnight.

Kit Keller: Goodnight, honey.

[Bobby leaves the room]

Gus Keller: When did he start calling us Gus and Kit?
