Emma: Vincent is the best thing that's ever happened to me!
Vincent: You wanna pat me down red? Could be the highlight of your week.
Vincent: Luke, Ravi. Just the guys I wanted to see. I have this friend and I need you to teach him a lesson.
Luke: If you're looking for a physics tutor, you got the wrong guy. My favorite subject is recess.
Ravi: Whereas I am good at everything, but recess.

Vincent: I mean I need your help to collect some money I'm owed from that guy.
Ravi: Oh, dear. That is not a guy. That is a building in a hoodie. (Luke and Ravi moaning)

Ravi: Excuse me, Mr. Giant, sir. My associate wishes to speak with you.
Luke: Now I know what Bertram's chair feels like.
Ravi: (groans, piano creaks) If you release us now, we will forgive you! But if you eat another bite of Bertram's bean dip, your colon will not!

Bertram: Emma! Em... What is going on here (sniffs) Is someone eating my bean dip? Oh, hi, Ravi.
Ravi: Hello, Bertram!
Bertram: Turn the music down! What is... Help! Emma! Teens! So much acne!
Luke: (groans, cries)
Emma: Vincent, this has gone too far! Ravi is stuck in the piano, Luke's being used as a seat cushion and Bertram was just swept away. And he hates sweeping! You guys have to leave.

Vincent: And you need to chill out!
Zuri (screaming)

Jessie: Keep it moving, people. Nothing to see here. (Jessie's phone rings) Fine. You win this round. And every round up till now.
Zuri: You got that right.
Jessie: Emma? What is going on? I-I can barely hear you over that noise. What is that noise?
Emma: It's a party! Stop it! That's an antique vase, not a football! (vase shatters) Jessie, come home! I need your help!
Jessie: Come on, Zuri. Emma needs me.

Zuri: Well, Branchy needs me! (screaming) Jessie: Zuri, I've gotta go. What's it gonna take?

Zuri: I can't wait to show Branchy her new home.

Jessie: Or what's left of it.

Zuri: I think I'll start by showing Branchy that panic room.
Emma: Jessie, I'm so sorry! You're right about Vincent. He's my T-Bob! And I don't want a T-Bob!

Jessie: Nobody should have a T-Bob. I got this.
Jessie: Hey, this party is over!

Vincent: Whoa. These are Emma's guests. You can't kick them out. You're just the help!
Emma: Don't you talk to Jessie that way!

Jessie: No, Emma. No, he's right. I am just the help. So let me help you out.
Jessie: My dad taught me that move. And sharpshooting. You're lucky I'm not armed.
Vincent: Emma, You're gonna let her do this to me?

Emma: You're right. She shouldn't do that.

Vincent: Ow!

Jessie: Now keep his wrist right in between the shoulder blades. Good Oh! Now I know how proud my dad felt. Everybody out!
Jessie: Well, nobody likes improv, either! Even mimes look down on you!

Officer Petey: Well you are no friend of the arts

or the NYPD!
