Memorable Quotes

Ally: Am I dreaming, or are you guys reading... a book?

Austin: It's the book of world records! Me and Dez are gonna set a world record!
Dez: How 'bout the world's longest fingernails?
Austin: Nah, how could we ever go bowling? Oh, here's one! Keeping your eyes open without blinking!
Dez: Oooh! Time me!
Trish: Hey!
Austin: Shhhh, Dez is trying to set the record for not blinking! Nobody bother him for 30 hours and 12 minutes.
Dez: I can't go on. I give up! How long was that?

Austin: 8 seconds.
Trish: You should go talk to him.

Ally: It's not that easy.

Dez: Sure it is! Hey Dallas! *in high pitched voice*
Dallas: Really? You'd mow my lawn for me?

Ally: Yup, that's what I heard myself say.

Dallas: Thanks!
Trish: How'd it go?

Ally: Great! Can anybody teach me how to mow a lawn?
Dez: There's no time for that, Ally. I'm about to set the record for the world's biggest brain freeze.
Austin: Umm, Dez? There's no record for that.

Dez: Man! Well, it's not working anyway, so- MMMMMMMMM AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Trish: I can't believe you mowed every lawn on Dallas's block!

Ally: After I mowed his lawn, it just looked so much better than all the other lawns. I felt bad for them.

Trish: Well, when you say it like that, it makes so much sense!
Trish: What's all this stuff?

Ally: That's our inventory for the entire year. My dad orders everything at once so he can save, like, 4 dollars.

Lester: 4 dollars and 36 cents.
Lester: Ooh, Ally! I need you to carry these boxes upstairs for me. You know I have a bad back.

Ally: There's a lot of boxes. Can't we, maybe, hire someone to help
Trish: I'm in between jobs right now. I'd love to work here!
Ally: I don't think so. *at same time as Lester*
Lester: Absolutely not.
Trish: Why not? I'd be a great employee.
Ally: Trish, you've had 30 jobs in the last month. You've never even kept a job for 3 days.
Trish: That hurts. I worked at the Calendar Store for almost a week, and I know because it was a Calendar Store.

Ally: It wasn't a week. It was a weekend. And I would know because you called in sick and I filled in for you both days.
Austin: Check it out! Me and Dez are going to set the world record for spinning a basketball on our finger.

Dez: The old record is 22 hours and 12 minutes. We are going to demolish it.
Austin/Dez: *do What up handshake*
Trish: Which one of you doofs is going to set the world record?
Austin: What do you mean?
Ally: There can only be 1 record holder.
Austin: Probably me. I'm getting pretty good at this.
Dez: It's gonna take a lot more than 'pretty good' to beat very pretty good.
Austin/Dez: Oh. It's. On!!!

Austin: Okay, it'll be on, later.
Trish: What are you, going to do about your dad?

Ally: I'm just going to tell him the truth.
Lester: Hey, Ally.

Ally: Nobody new works here.
Austin: In less than 24 hours, one of us will hold the world record for spinning a basketball.

Dez: And by 'one of us', he means me.
Austin: And my 'me', he means me.

Dez: I'm confused.
Austin: These official record book officials will be officially recording our official times. Officially.
Dallas: You sure you're not upset I sold that 500 dollar guitar for 50 dollars?

Ally: Oh, that's okay. You didn't see the extra zero on the price tag.
Dallas: There was a price tag?

Ally: Wow
Dallas: So what can I do now?
Ally: I need you to... take all these picks out of the jar, separate them by color and then mix them back up again and put them back in the jar.
Ally: I couldn't fire Dallas. I tried, but then he started talking about how much he likes hanging out with me, and I ended up giving him a raise.

Trish: I like hanging out with you.

Ally: I'm not giving you any money.
Dallas: I wasn't the best employee. I just, I get so, nervous when I'm around you, sometimes.
Ally: You get nervous around me? Around nervous I get you. See?
Trish: Well, on a more important note, guess who kept her job at the cellphone cart for three whole days?

Ally: Not you it's only been two days.

Trish: What? I just quit. Aw, man. Oh well.
