• “- Arnold Stoner: [to wife, off camera] Sweetheart, I'll talk to him.
    - Arnold Stoner: [to Anthony, as he makes a fruit smoothie] Son, your mother and me would like for you to cozy up to the Finkelstein boy. He's a brightkid, and, uh... he's going to military school, and... remember, he was an Eagle Scout...
    - Mrs. Tempest Stoner: Arnold...
    - Arnold Stoner: [shouting as wife continues] Will you shut up? We're not going to have a family brawl!
    - Mrs. Tempest Stoner: ...and a retard!
    - Arnold Stoner: We've put up with a hell of a lot.
    - Arnold Stoner: [Anthony starts blender]Can this wait? Build your goddamn muscles, huh? You know, you could build your muscles picking strawberries. You know, bend and scoop... like the Mexicans.
    - Arnold Stoner: Shit, maybe I could get you a job with United Fruit! I got a buddy with United Fruit. Get you started. Start with strawberries, you might work your way up to these goddamn bananas!
    - Arnold Stoner: When, boy? When... are you going to get your act together? [Anthony turns to him and gives a loud belch]
    - Mrs. Tempest Stoner: [in disgust] Gross!
    - Arnold Stoner: [rubs his forehead with his hand] Oh, good God Almighty me. I think he's the Antichrist.
    - Arnold Stoner: Anthony, I want to talk to you. Now, listen!
    - Arnold Stoner: [Anthony walks away and gives an obscene gesture behind his back] Don't walk away from me when I'm talking to you! You get a goddamn job before sundown...
    - Mrs. Tempest Stoner: [pointing to Anthony as he walks away] Is that some kind of peace sign?
    - Arnold Stoner: ...or we're shipping you off to military school with that... goddamn Finkelstein... shit kid!
    - Arnold Stoner: Son of a BITCH!”
