Quote from Hal in New Neighbors

Police Officer: We've had a report that you've been seen prowling in the neighbors' yards and peeking in their windows.
Malcolm: What?
Lois: So you've decided to become a Peeping Tom? A Peeping Tom?!
Malcolm: But I didn't do it. Why would I want to look in anybody's windows? Have you seen the people in this neighborhood?
Hal: Peeping isn't about looks, son. It's about the thrill and exhilaration of observing someone without their knowledge.

Quote from Reese

Quote from Buseys Run Away

Lois: Why are you pacing?
Hal: Let me ask you something, Lois. What would you do if, hypothetically, through a series of unforeseeable circumstances, you found yourself commanding an army of benevolent strongmen?
Lois: What?
Hal: Picture it. A dozen guys, any one of them can rip a horse in half, willing to follow your every command. Well, you'd have to do something really great with that. Something noble and unselfish, but not too expensive. And we are not even taking into account that I could easily be led to the dark side. Lois, you have to promise me, if you ever see me holding a cat and laughing maniacally over a globe, you need to let me know.
