Lars: Please put your fat finger down!

[Josh does so, and turns to the wall and stretches the "Before" sign across his bottom, causing Lars to get so aggravated that he snaps the camera valve in his hand too many times, causing it to not work anymore]

[Lars breaks the ice block while the campers freak out. Tony is unharmed]

Mrs. Garner: Gerry!

Roger Johnson: Now that's not kind, Gerry.

Maury Garner: We're doing this for your own good. We gatta nip this thing in the bud.

Gerry: I'm fine. This is a joke right? You're fatter than I am why don't you go to fat camp.

Lars: [over speakers] Now, its time to meet your new owner and operator. Tony Perkis is a man who believes in you. His life is dedicated to saying things like "YES!" and "You better believe it!" Entrepenuer, a motivator, and a new friend! May I introduce, TONY PERKIS!

Tony Perkis: You picked the wrong man to mess with.

Josh: [sarcastically] Oh, I didn't know I was messing with a man!

Lars: Hello, I am your new friend and counselor. Please insists about wearing your Perkins System uniforms. Your families will be billed automatically. Now, lets play a fun game that helps us learn each others names.

Josh: [mocking Lars' accent] We already know each others names.

Lars: Silence!

Tony Perkis: Let me make something very clear: The PerkiSystem does not work with cheaters like Gerald Garner. OK? How can I sell an infomercial about fat kids who can't keep their piggy little snouts shut? Hmm? Who's gonna buy that, huh?

[Tony chases Josh down a hill and Josh gets a leg cramp]

Alice Bushkin: Harvey and I are saddened and dismayed to announce that we are no longer the owners of Camp Hope.

[the whole crowd gets shocked in disbelief]

Harvey Bushkin: Sometimes, in life, things don't work out the way you planned, and in those situations, sometimes you file chapter 9 bankruptcy.

[shreiks in agitation]

Harvey Bushkin: [struggling to get his voice] We worked our whole life, and what do we have to show? Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!

[sobs]

Alice Bushkin: Harvey, please stop.

[to the crowd]

Alice Bushkin: Okay, kids, out with the old, and in with the new.

[you hear some sobbing and shocks]

Alice Bushkin: Now, your new owner is gonna introduce himself in a minute. But, you know what I would like? Please, could you give us just one more Camp Hope "Hi, hi, hiya"?

Crowd: Hiya.

Alice Bushkin: God bless all of you.

Harvey Bushkin: One word of advice, NEVER LET ANYONE SIGN YOUR CHECKS!

Tony Perkis: [first time seen] Can you smell it? There's a life force in here tonight. Do you feel it? Hmm? I look around this room, and I see potential.

[to Gerry]

Tony Perkis: I see the future chairman of a Fortune 500 company.

[to Roy]

Tony Perkis: I see a famous rap artist.

[to Nicholas]

Tony Perkis: I see the president of the United States of America.

Gerry: He's from England!

Tony Perkis: Kids, at age 12, I weighed 319 pounds. I had bad skin, low self-esteem, and no self-respect. Now, I eat success for breakfast, with skim milk.

Lars: I'm feeling skinny Tony!

Tony Perkis: Come 'ere, you devil log!

Tony Perkis: You've been a good guard, Nicholas. Fair and strong. I want to reward you with this chocolate kiss.

[holds out the fake candy to Nicholas]

Nicholas: Throw it over!

Tony Perkis: Then it would smoosh... we wouldn't want that.

Tony Perkis: [Nicholas goes to grab the candy and Tony puts him in a headlock] Looks like London Bridge is falling down!

Roy: Lars? What kind of name is that? Where you from?

Lars: [pause] ... Far Away!

Lars: Now, I have a severly deviated septum, and when I sleep I make a disturbing sound... Don't be alarmed, I am fine. Good Night!

MVP camper: Here take it... take it!

Tony Perkis: Hey! Who wants to be on T.V. hhmm? That's Kenny the Camera Man!

Tony Perkis: Only film the ones that are standing Kenneth.

Lars: Huh very fat I see.

Lars: [singing] I was not scared of that big deer.

Lars: [over the PA] Pat Finley, please report to the men's toilet. Bring a mop and a plunger... now!

Tony Perkis: Oh yes that was wonderful. So entertaining. The cinematography, the editing techniques. Though I must say, the villain, was a bit... over the top.

Tony Perkis: Attention campers the topic for tonight's discussion is, "Liposuction: Option or Obsession."

Pat Finley: [to Gerry] Are you ready for the best damn summer of your life?

[cut to everybody in the bus driving to camp]

Boys: YEAH!

Pat Finley: Yeah and is everybody going to behave themselves this summer?

Boys: NOOOOOO!

Pat Finley: Good, that's what I expect!

Pat Finley: [driving to camp] Hey Sam don't lean your head out the window, I'm not going to go back and pick it up again.

Sam: Who wants my head? I don't need it anyway.

Pat Finley: Did you talk to child services?

Julie: Yeah, they said they'd like to come out and investigate but they can't come for two weeks.

Pat Finley: That's too long. Tim, what did your lawyer say?

Tim: No hard evidence.

Pat Finley: Hard evidence? Tony's hard evidence, just look at the guy!

Tim: It's what the lawyer said.

Gerry: [to Pat about Tony] Let's go get everybody and kick his ass!

Tim: Guys you can't kidnap a camp counselor, they give people the chair for something like this!

Tony Perkis: [over the loudspeakers] Time to wake up, campers! Today is evaluation day. The key word here is 'value.' Do you have any? Not yet! But before summer's over, this camp's gonna be filled with skinny winners!

Roy: "Skinny weiners?" You hear that, guys?

[all the boys laugh]

Roy: [Nicholas had just abruptly Farted right into Gerry's Face] You have one of those fish-and-chip farts there, Nicky?

Gerry: Who's this?

Roger Johnson: Hi, Gerry. "Roger Johnson." Islander's fan, huh? Team of the future, I'd say.

Gerry: Uh, yeah. Whatever, I'm out of here.

Maury Garner: Hold those horses, cowboy. Mr. Johnson is your guest, and he's here to talk to you about a very special summer camp.

Roger Johnson: A camp designed just for you, Gerry.

Gerry: Summer Camp? No way. I have plans for the summer. I'm gonna hang out!

Mrs. Garner: Come on, Honey. He's got a videotape for us to watch. Why don't we just take a little peek?

Gerry: Why don't we not?
