Quotes

Officer Polansky: We have it all on video. You destroyed private property. Add breaking and entering, and you're working on a pretty serious rap sheet.
Lizzy Muldoun: There was no breaking, and the door was unlocked. So, what's so bad about entering?
Jeremy Fink: Stop it. Stop talking. I asked you not to get me arrested this summer.
