Boy: Excuse me, are you one of the players?
Ben: Oh no, my job's much better big guy! You know what I do, is I'm in charge of this entire arena. Every night, 17,505 people come here expecting to have a good time, and I make sure they do!
Boy: (with the same enthusiasm as before) Are you one of the players?
Ben: (taken aback) What? I just tol...what the hell's the matter with you?

Ben: Hey, you're the head maintence guy, right?
Bobert: Yes.
Ben: And your name is ... Bob --- Bobinson --- Bobert?
Bobert: Yes.
Ben: (surprised) Really? Your name is Bob Bobinson Bobert?
Bobert: Two years ago you told me you only wanted to hear me say yes. It's tricky, because you don't always ask yes or no questions.

Crystal: Now Alonzo, make sure you have a good mix of kids for the photo op. You know, black, white...the Himalayas are in Asia, right?
Alonzo: (nods) Mmm-hmm.
Crystal: Get me an Asian kid. Oh! And I'm gonna need some kind of a trophy. Have the Asian child hand me some kind of a trophy! (claps)
Ben: You're right to clap, because these are all very strong ideas.

Alonzo: So, how is your new assistant working out?
Ben: Oh, Heather? Ah...She's great. Thank you for her by the way. Always on time, very sweet. Remind me again though, what did she do? She...she lit a man on fire?
Alonzo: There was an investigation. The evidence was inconclusive. Ah...yes.
Ben: But...the guy's okay though, right?
Alonzo: Well she did light him on fire, so .... he's not great.
