Ralph: Hi, Cedric!
Schaeffer: Hey, what's in the bag?
Cedric: Oh, nothing...just a few of my personal belongings...
Melissa: Cedric, is everything all right?
Cedric: No, I've left home. Pop doesn't appreciate me. He thinks I'm just a living, breathing adding machine.
Melissa: Oh, Cedric, Cyril loves his own mercenary way.

Cyril: (To Pig Two) If you were twice as smart as you think you are, you'd still be a halfwit!

Cyril: This place looks like a pig sty!
Pigs: Oh, Thank you, sir! We try sir!

Ralph: Good night Bert, Goodnight Cedric.
Cedric: Goodnight.
Bert: Goodnight.
Cedric: WAIT!
Bert: What is it?
Cedric: I can't fall asleep, until I here my lullaby!
Ralph: I don't think we know your lullaby.
Melissa: Why don't you sing it for us, and maybe we'l learn it for tomorrow night?
Cedric: It's not the same unless Pop is singing it.

Pigs: Boss! Boss!
Cyril: Well? Did you find him?
Pig One: Yes sir, we followed the girl like you said and...
Pig Two: He's with The Raccoons!
Cyril: The Raccoons? I should of known! Their the ones who put him up to this!
Pig One: But sir...
Cyril: Those meddlesome roddents are a bad influence! Thave got the poor kid brain washed!
Pig One: But sir, you were the one who made him retire. You were the one who... (Cyril glares at him) ...heh, heh, em, saw through The Raccoons all along.
Cyril: And don't you ever forget it!

Cyril: (singing) A dollar for your thoughts, my son. See money while you sleep. Watch those dollars jump the fence instead of silly sheep. And as each dollar earns its wings, snatch it from the air. Do this a million times my son, and you'll be a millionaire.
