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