4: Remember the days when we used to catch and kill our prey? Denyce, we were acting a fool with Dad on Thanksgiving in Vestel, New York, 1974
5: I've dined sufficiently. My appetite has been highly "salasified." If I should eat anymore it would be "superinfluidy." A pig and a calf and a cow and a half. Save the bones for Henry Jones 'cause Henry don't eat no meat. ...Lord willing and if the creek don't rise.

11: I was in the Sahara desert and I looked around me and there wasn't a drop of water for miles and miles. Then I took a running jump and landed in my little, Hiawatha barge bark canoe and went shooting up the lathery waters with my ruby lips flapping in the breeze and my lily white skin a glowin'. Get Down! I'll co-cock you and knock you out! ...for crying out loud...
12: Be what you is and not what you ain't, 'cause if you ain't what you is, then you is what you ain't.
14: I'm with you through thick and thin, when it gets thick I thin out. Old, bad Dan was the crudest dude in the land. He was 46 inches across his chest and he didn't care nothin' 'bout sickness or death. He had a tombstone disposition and a grave yard mind. He was a bad, bad dude and he didn't mind dying.

17: Step over the line...now you're on my side. (you would say this when someone wanted to fight you) When I was young and in my prime I used to lend the sum of a thin, thin dime. But now that I'm old and my pockets are thin, I squeeze a half dollar till the eagle grins. See you later alligator...not so soon baboon... after while crocodile. If you're white you're right, if you're yellow, you're mellow, if you're brown you can come around. But if you're black get back!
