Movie Quote(s):
  • Dad: [as demon] [shouts] Dad: You've... been... BAD!
  • Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: May the old devils depart! May they burn in the fires of their own damnation! May they freeze in the infinite golden darkness of their own hideous creation! Glen: Isn't that kind of insulting? Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: I guess it's supposed to be. I mean, we're trying to get rid of them.
  • Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: We accidently summoned demons who used to rule the universe to come and take over the world. Glen: Yeah, we found out about it from, uh, one of Terry's albums.
  • Glen: Well... ever since I burnt a hole in the roof my dad says I can't launch any of my rockets without supervision. Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: Hey... I'll supervise.
  • Al: Glen! Don't be embarrassed! Crying's nothing! Remember when Trevor Stubblefield pantsed me in front of the whole auditorium? Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: Yeah! And I barfed on Steve Slavitt after the 12 minute run!
