                    (SHOUT: "His latest creation since the Big Mac")

Harry: Why, you're practically naked!

Janet: Well, I can't wear anything under it, Daddy. It would spoil the line.

                    (SHOUT: "My lines are so spoiled, I don't know what to do...") or

                    (SHOUT: "Hey Brad, what do you say while giving a blow job?")

(Brad grumbles. Camera goes to Cosmo leading the Weisses into the cell with him)

Cosmo: The patient was in great danger of doing himself a mischief.

                    (SHOUT: "So give him some raisins")

Nation: We only want what's best for him. As parents you must understand.

                    (SHOUT: "He said parrots again")

Harry: No. No I don't. Brad doesn't need to be trussed up like a turkey.

                    (SHOUT: "He said turkey") or

                    (SHOUT: "No, he's trussed up like a parrot") or

                    (SHOUT: "Gobble gobble")

There are drugs to keep him quiet.

                    (SHOUT: "I'll take five dollars worth") or

                    (SHOUT: "No there's not. I did them all")

Emily: And none of them worked?

Nation: No.

                    (SHOUT: "They were unemployed")

Harry: Then double the strength.

Nation: We did.

Cosmo: We know our job.

Nation: We also know how you feel. We're not strangers to confusion(Farley laughs)

Emily: We're not confused

                    (ECHO: "Losers")

Harry: Well I am, goddamn it. You trust Brad with this crowd pleaser?

                    (ECHO: "You trust our country to Bush?")
