Quotes

Earl Sinclair: As you can see, I have separated all known dinosaur wisedom into three catagories: Animal. Vegetable. Rocks.
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.
