George & Wendy Show
Wendy Parker on detention: "What kind of idiot arrives at a warehouse and expects people to unload their truck? (This is thinly veiled sarcasm. OK, completely unveiled sarcasm.)"
"I had not only been sitting directly under the wing vents singing like a maniac, I was screaming lyrics that, when heard without the benefit of the actual music, could be misconstrued."
"I have it on good authority that New York City is overflowing with dead bodies. Well, maybe not good authority, and possibly bordering on vicious slander and innuendo territory..."
Parker: “The aliens will talk to me for sure. They probably remember me from when I was abducted as a child.”
“You’re conversing with someone who’s afraid of wombat infestation in California while scooping dinosaur cat poop into a bag as a present for your dad. I don’t think any useless fact you have stored in your giant brain will make any of this OK.”
Wendy and George find themselves on a cow path in the middle of the night in Arizona: "When George Parker is driving and he says, 'This isn’t good,' it means you’re potentially about to experience a fiery death crash."...
What happens when 15-year-old surliness runs up against Wendy Parker's natural reason for being -- more than just a little Yoda-speak involved, it is.
"If you can affect one person in a positive way today, you've done your job as a human being. Otherwise, you're an alien."
