Squirt: Bad luck is bad luck. You can't just wash it off with soap and water.
Lucky: You know, I get why Niblet believes in all this hocus-pocus stuff. I mean, he refuses to eat out of the left side of his dish every Tuesday, Friday, and third Monday.
Niblet: That's so the magic flea angels won't get me.
Lucky: But you Squirt -- you, I don't understand.

Taboo: Ever since the day I was born. Hmm, I remember it like it was months ago.
Squirt: (Deadpan) It was months ago.
