Quotes

Dexter: [laughing] Dee Dee, I heard this great joke! Okay, here it goes: A physics professor and his assistant are working on liberating negatively-charged hydroxyl ions, when all of a sudden, the assistant says, "Wait, professor, what if the salicylic acids do not accept the hydroxyl ions?" And the professor responds, "That's no hydroxyl ion; that's my wife!"

15 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This show became a regular viewing for me and my brothers we would sit down from 4 till 5 and watch the show it was different episodes all stacked up the funniest things that happened was when Dee Dee was around usually.

It had everything, class, great writing, real life examples (A annoying little sibling or older).

The way Dexter had his accent was pretty cool like a Russian scientist and his way of handling situations with research and experiments.

The funniest episode was the pig one were Dexter try's to act like a average teenager, he joins a normal dull teenager who likes to annoy a local resident.

A great show for all,
