"Don't your eyebrows ever get out of control?" -Robbie
"I don't know. Being me doesn't really require my full attention." -Arthur

"Don't ask me anything about America. I don't know anything about it. I'm from New York." -Arthur

"We have a report of a high-speed chase in progress on the eastbound Ventura freeway near Oxnard, which is what, 140 miles from Los Angeles." -Barney the Anchorman
"Actually, it's like, you know, sixty." -Kate the Anchorwoman

"A high-speed chase brings L.A. to a grinding halt. It's like our version of a snow-day. People stop working, stop driving, stop sleeping, stop putting, stop acting, stop tanning, stop winning, stop losing.... Whatever they're doing they just stop and get to a TV set." -Robbie

"Why doesn't he give up? He can't get away." -Jennifer
"Why not? He's in a German car. The cops are in what? Like, Plymouths?" -Lauren

"I think this anchorwoman is cute. Arthur, you should make her your girlfriend." -Shrug
"Does it work like that?" -Arthur
"I don't know." -Shrug

"This guy is so stupid. He shoulda grabbed a hostage, then he could've used the carpool lane." -Lauren

"Hi, Mom." -Arthur
"I see on the news in California they're chasing someone. Are you okay?" -Arthur's mom
"Mom, I don't live on the highway. I'm in a house." -Arthur
"Arthur, maybe you should come home." -Arthur's mom
"Mom, can I call you back?" -Arthur
"Wait 'till after five when the rates change." -Arthur's mom
"Okay." -Arthur
"Unless Robbie's paying for the call." -Arthur's mom
"Okay." -Arthur

"The American Express Card. Don't change your face without it." -Jennifer
