Hank: This is crazy. I thought you were dead.
Manny: Am I dead?
Hank: I don’t think so, you’re talking.
Hank: [after dragging the seemingly dead body of Manny into a cave] I need you to help me get home. Okay, buddy?

Hank: People don’t like other people’s farts.
Manny: Is that why you don’t fart in front of me?
