  • Soup (or whatever ) Nazi
  • No soup for you!
  • I KNOW!
  • Whatchu talkin' about Willis?
  • Fuhgedaboudit!
  • That's hot.
  • Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  • Silly rabbit. (Trix are for kids)
  • Oh no he di'n't.
  • Frak!
  • I have a bad feeling about this.
  • Smarter than your average bear.
