Season 1

The Parent Track

Leo: Your pants are lookin' pretty saggy.
Young Max: Saggy in a cool, hip-hop way?
Leo: I think we both know the answer to that. Hey, this new movie, Tyrannosaurus Island, opens tonight.
Young Max: The one with the gnarly dinosaurs? Man, I'm dying to see it.
Leo: Your mom won't let you see a PG-13 movie. She barely lets you watch that cartoon about a friendly ghost.
Young Max: He's still a ghost, Leo. (beeper beeps)
Leo: Your mom again?
Young Max: Yep. You know what? We're going to that movie. That woman can't tell me what to do. I'm not a child. (coins jingle in his pants as he walks, then his pants fall, making the customers in the arcade laugh)

Leo: (goes towards Max; blocks people from seeing Max) Nothing to see here, people! Just a man who needs to call his mommy!

As Bad As She Gets

Leo: I, Leonard Lawrence Webb...
Young Max: And I, Maxwell Keith Reynolds, do solemnly swear...
Leo: That we will be best friends even when I go to private school.
Young Max: What about high school?
Leo: Best friends. What about when we go to college?
Young Max: Best friends. What if there’s a zombie apocalypse and one of us becomes a zombie?

Leo: I promise I’ll bite you and we’ll be zombies together.
