Denny Dillon: [nastily] Hello. We’re speaking to you on behalf of an organization of decent, moral Americans.

Gail Matthius: We’re the folks who listen to the preachers on television to vote conservative. We did, and we won. So, listen up, losers!

Gail Matthius: Who are we mean to? Just about everybody.

Charles Rocket: We believe that the vast majority of Americans in their hearts are just like us – mean!

Gail Matthius: Those days are over!
