Mikey Blumberg: You know, all these years I never thought I was good at anything. But now, thanks to Miss Salimony, I realize I do have a talent.
Gus Griswald: She must be one great teacher.
Mikey Blumberg: She is, you guys. She's kind and beautiful and smart. And I love her.
Gretchen Grundler: [Spinelli does a spit take] Perhaps we were mistaken, Mikey, but we thought you just said you LOVED Miss Salimony.
Mikey Blumberg: I do. And she loves me too.
Vince LaSalle: C'mon man, you're only nine.
Gus Griswald: Yeah, and she's old. REALLY old. She's gotta be at least 24.
Theodore J. 'T.J.' Detweiler: But I don't get it. You sing great. I heard you once in the bathroom.
Mikey Blumberg: Oh, sure. In the bathroom. Anyone can sing in the bathroom. But when I'm out here in front of people, I'm almost as bad as Spinelli.
Spinelli: Watch it pal, or you'll be hitting a new octave.
