Merle: [the Gogans have returned and want to take Pete away from Nora] Okay lady, we're gonna take him whether you like it or not. Right boys?

Grover: Right, Pa. Willie, you grab onto Pete, while I hold onto her.

Willie: You grab Pete, I wanna hold her.

Grover: I wanna hold her!

Willie: I'm gonna hold her!

[Willie and Grover push each other]

Merle: [separates them] Alright, I'll settle this: You two grab the brat, I'LL hold her.

Lena Gogan: If you think you're gonna hold her, like my boys wanna hold her, you're gonna be holdin' your head, ya understand?

Nora: Well, if there's enough room for a chowder-head like you, then there's *more* than enough room for a dragon.

Dr. Terminus: I hate Pa - pa - Pastahazootie, or whatever the name of this town is.

Hoagy: Quoddy.

Dr. Terminus: Yeah. I don't want to cure anybody here. They all deserve to have whatever they have.

Willie: [after being knocked in the mud by Elliott] Somethin' hit me!

Grover: What somethin'?

Willie: If I knowed what somethin', I wouldn't call it somethin'! I'd call it by its name!

Grover: Hey Ma, w-why don't we get ourselves another orphan, huh?

Lena Gogan: Because I done paid our last $50 for Pete, plus $.50 legal fees, and we ain't got another $50 plus legal, that's why. Ya understand?

[Willie and Grover look at each other then shake their heads]

Lena Gogan: Well, here's somethin' you *will* understand: you're gonna have to start workin' the farm with your own two hands, less'n you spot that little twerp!

Merle: Say, have you seen anything of a mean, fresh, kid, about ye big? Answers to the name of Pete.

Hoagy: Half of the kids here in this town answer to Pete. Other half don't answer.

Pete: Where's Elliott?

Lena Gogan: [comes out of the closet behind him and grabs him and messes up his hair] Nowhere! Your hokey pokey dragon is out helpin' Santa Claus pull his sled! Boys!

Pete: Let me go!

[Willie and Grover lift him up by his legs and Pete pounds on them and tries to get free]

Lena Gogan: Now you're never gonna get away again! We're gonna put chains on ya when you're workin'!

Merle: And when you're not workin'.

Willie: And when you're sleepin'!

Pete: I can't sell you Elliot. I don't own him.

Hoagy: Well what did you do, rent him?

Dr. Terminus: Well who owns him?

Pete: No one, I guess. He just sort of goes to those who need him.

Dr. Terminus: *I* need him! Look deliver Elliot to me and the fiver is yours plus a special growth formula that's guaranteed to bring on puberty about a year early... and that's better than a dragon, eh?

Dr. Terminus: Why do I hear a bell ringing?

Hoagy: School must be out.

Dr. Terminus: It's too early, stupid.

Lena Gogan: That boy is our legal property, same as the family cow.

Pete: [Pete, Nora, and Lampie are lobster fishing] I got one! I got one!

[pulls lobster out of the crate and holds it up]

Pete: Ugh, it's UGLY!

Nora: [singing] Watch out, or I'll take you apart!

Lena GoganWillieGroverMerle: [singing] We'd like to see you try it!

Hoagy: [trying to tell Dr. Terminus about seeing Elliott for the first time]

[stutters scarily]

Hoagy: El- El- Dra- Dra...

Dr. Terminus: What is an "El- El-, Dra- Dra-"?

Nora: Where did you get that bruise?

Pete: Mr. Gogan. I was milking the cow and I missed the bucket.

Dr. Terminus: [talking to the Gogans after Elliott crashed their boat and they fell into the water and now they're sick] Excuse me folks, I witnessed what happened today and I'm completely sympathetic with you.

Grover: [offensively] What's "sympathetic" mean?

Dr. Terminus: [explaining the plan to capture Elliott to Hoagy] Got it?

Hoagy: Got it. What I don't got is, how are you gonna get that monster, that hideous beast, that nightmare sent by the devil to come here?

Dr. Terminus: Easy, we get someone he knows to bring him here.

Hoagy: Who'd be crazy enough to do that?

[Dr. Terminus stares at Hoagy]

Hoagy: [screams] NOOOOO! NOOOOOO!

Dr. Terminus: He knows you, he trusts you!

Hoagy: He scares me! He hates ME!

Lampie: [trying to sneak past the lighthouse into Elliot's cave]

[drunk, shouting]

Lampie: Shussh! We don't want- we don't want Nora... to hear us!

Hoagy: Ssshh!

Lampie: Huh?

Hoagy: SSSHHH!

Lampie: [pause, still shouting] We don't want Nora to hear us!

Nora: [singing] Welcome the dragon while you have a chance / give him his moment to rise up and dance!

The Mayor: When did I start losing control of my town?
