Chris Quote #323

Quote from Chris in Everybody Hates Caruso

Chris: You need to stand up to Yao.
Joey Caruso: Are you crazy? He hit me in the eye with a Siberian flying tiger. I couldn't see straight for three days.
Chris: So? When I first came to this school, you smacked me around. But I stood up to you. [flashback to the fight] And you smacked me around some more. [another flashback]
Joey Caruso: So what's your point?
Chris: You see, every superhero needs a villain. I mean, where would Superman be if it wasn't for Lex Luthor? He'd be at the Hall of Justice watching super TV. [sighs] And the Fantastic Four, where would they be if it wasn't for Dr. Doom? At the circus. [toilet flushing] The reason you need to stand for yourself is because I need you. The school needs you. And unless you want to spend the rest of the school year slinking around and being scared to let me kick the crap out of you, you need to stand up for yourself.
Joey Caruso: You really think I can beat him?
Chris: I don't think so, I know so.

Drew: Man, I wish I could take a week off. I need a vacation.
Julius: What for? You're a kid. Your whole life's a vacation. This is a waste of time. I should be working.
