Best Quotes from Trailer:
[as Precious licks Surly]
Surly: Precious, we talked about this.
Precious: It’s hard to respect your personal space when you taste like peanut butter.
Andie: [to Surly] Look at all of you, lazy and spoiled and fat!..
Surly: Take it easy, Andie. It’s not like the nut shop’s going to explode.
[suddenly the nut shop explodes]
Precious: Oh, no! The peanut butter was in there!
Baby Beaver: What are we going to do, Surly?
Surely: I’ll find a new place, even better than the nut shop.
[referring to Liberty Park]
Beaver: It’s as pretty as a picture.
Andie: It’s perfect.
The Mayor: Liberty Park generates zero profits. I got bigger plans than trees.
Andie: They’re going to destroy the park!
Surly: It’s a fat guy with a tiny shovel. How much damage can he do?
[just then a massive bulldozer digs up the ground next to him]
Surly: Oh, I get it. Tiny shovel was a symolic gesture.
Buddy: We’re all going to die!

[as a couple are playing whacking cardboard moles at the amusement park]

[Mole then starts whacking the couple over the head]
