Quotes [the mouse is lying helpless in front of the two Smuntzes]
Lars: Look, he's still breathing.
Ernie: Well, kill him! Find a blunt object!
[Lars grabs a fireplace shovel and raises it over the mouse]
Ernie: Let him have it!
[Lars tries several times, but can't]
Ernie: What the hell are you waiting for?
Lars: I can't just hit him with a shovel.
Ernie: Why not?
Lars: Well, look at him, he's pathetic!
Ernie: Pathetic? He's Hitler with a tail! This is The Omen with whiskers! Nostradamus didn't see this thing coming!
Lars: Ernie, he's a living thing...
Ernie: Not for long, give me that!
[He grabs the shovel and tries to whack the mouse, but can't]
Ernie: I CAN'T!
[He sobs, beating his own forehead with the shovel]
Ernie: Look at him just lying there. It just doesn't feel very sportsmanlike!
Lars: We'd better do something quick, I think he's coming to!
[Cut to Lars and Ernie driving to the Post Office. Ernie is holding a small box addressed "TO FIDEL CASTRO, HAVANA, CUBA." Scratching is heard inside the box, and Ernie raises it to his ear]
Ernie: Aw... I forgot to put holes in the box.
[Ernie chuckles evilly. At the Post Office, they drop the box through a slot and watch it slide down the mail chute]
Ernie: Hasta la vista, you little rat bastard!
