    Shake: How did you get this number? (Looks at monitor) I'm not here...
    Carl: Oh you're not there?
    Shake: I... Hello Carl.
    Carl: Hey, buddy! How you doing there? Pizzaland, huh? That's lots of fun. Hey uh, I wanted to let you know, that you burned my frickin' house down!
    Shake: But the grass is gone, correct? Look, that is the cost of doing business. I told you there would be risks.
    Carl: Yeah, no. The grass is gone. Just like your face is gonna be gone when I shove it in a pastrami slicer...
    Shake: Ha ha hah, slice my face off, you are clever! You're a quick wit! Ah, well look, relax. And I'll be down there in like, five minutes. And we'll iron all this out, okay?
    Carl: Oh yeah, that sounds great! Yeah, we'll iron it out. I'll go get my iron. My tire iron. (Shake hangs up)
  • Oglethorpe: We are on top secret mission of world domination!
    Frylock: World Domination? You guys couldn't take over a damn bowl of Jello.
    Emory: Hey is this Jello like, an important place or something?
    Oglethorpe: Where is it?!
