Quote of the Day: The Burbs

Ray Peterson: Remember what you were saying about people in the ‘burbs, Art, people like Skip, people who mow their lawn for the 800th time, and then SNAP? WELL, THAT’S US. IT’S NOT THEM, THAT’S US. WE’RE the ones who are vaulting over the fences, and peeking in through people’s windows. We’re the ones who are THROWING GARBAGE IN THE STREET, AND LIGHTING FIRES. WE’RE THE ONES WHO ARE ACTING SUSPICIOUS AND PARANOID, ART. WE’RE THE LUNATICS. US. IT’S NOT THEM. It’s us.

Art Wiengartner: [after a pause] I don’t know what to say… What, do you want me to move?

[Ray charges at him]

Young Copper: Why it’s… it’s you.
[howls]
Young Tod: What’d you do that for?
Young Copper: We’re supposed to do that when we find what we’ve been tracking.
Young Tod: I’m a fox. My name’s Tod. What’s your name kid?
Young Copper: Mine’s Copper. I’m a hound dog.

Dream a Little Dream

Bobby Keller: Why do we have to take something so far that it can’t be taken back? I’ll tell you why – because we’re young, and when you’re young, every little thing seems so big.
