Randy Quote #404

Quote from Randy in Rebel Without Night Driving Privileges

Randy: Well, I'm back safe and sound before the danger of nightfall rears its ugly little head.
Jill: Did you and Lauren have a good time?
Randy: Oh, yeah. We had another lovely wonderful afternoon date. We caught a 3:30 matinee filled with old people explaining the movie to each other. Then we went to an early-bird dinner filled with old people saying, [as an old man] "Does the salmon have bones? I hate bones."


 ‘Rebel Without Night Driving Privileges’ Quotes

Quote from Brad

Tim: I found the root beer out there. Odd thing, though. I couldn't find the Nomad.
Jill: Oh, no!
Tim: It's not in the driveway. It's not in the garage. Where is the station wagon, Brad?
Brad: Well, it is called a Nomad. Maybe it wandered off?

Quote from Randy

Randy: I don't believe this. When I was his age you never would have let me go out this late on a school night.
Jill: Well, you also never had trouble making friends like he does. This thing has been really good for him.
Randy: Wait a second. Let me get this straight. Mark gets fewer rules because he's a dork. And I get more rules because Brad's a dork?
Brad: That's night-driving dork to you.

Quote from Wilson

Jill: I'm an inconsistent parent.
Wilson: Well... Todos los empleados deben lavarse las manos antes de regresar al trabajo.
Jill: "All employees must wash their hands before returning to work"?
Wilson: All right, maybe I had one margarita. [Jill laughs] But I do have something to say about you being an inconsistent parent.
Jill: What's that?
Wilson: Well, you know, the essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds." You know, Randy and Brad and Mark, they're totally different kids. To give them one set of rules would be folly.
Jill: So you're saying that I was right not to let Randy drive at night?
Wilson: No, no, no, no, no. I'm just saying you should treat each child according to his individual needs.
