  • Hey folks! I'll never dampen your holidays! [door slams shut] No respect. No respect at all.


Rover Dangerfield: [about playing fetch] He throws a stick, you run and get it, you bring it back and he throws it again! I don't get it! I mean, what's the point?
Raffles: Because it makes them happy and it gives them lots of exercise
Rover Dangerfield: If they want exercise, let them run and get it.
Raffles: So what should I do?
Rover Dangerfield: It's very simple. You do nothing.

Rover Dangerfield: Where's Flappy?
Queenie: Carmine fired him. He couldn't remember the routines.
Rover Dangerfield: Oh, I saw that coming. Flappy was dumb. Yeah, he used to walk backwards and wag his head. I mean dumb! Carmine taught him to sit, he forgot how to stand! And when Carmine paper-trained him, that was something. He went right on the paper. The only trouble is, Carmine was reading it!

Turkey: Let me tell you, I won't be here very long.
Rover Dangerfield: I tell ya, the way I see it, you probably won't be around after Christmas!
Turkey: Well, that would suit me just fine! Well, I might have known: There's absolutely nothing to eat here!
Rover Dangerfield: Yeah? Look in a mirror!
Turkey: Oh... I don't get it.
Rover Dangerfield: Don't worry about it, drumstick. You will!
