The Burbs

Revealing mistake: When the Klopek's house is burning and the roof starts to collapse, the "house" is really just an empty shell.

Revealing mistake: After Art and Ray successfully blow up the Klopek's house, Ray emerges from the ruins and the porch collapses behind him. It can be seen that the porch supports are dragged backwards towards the house to allow the porch to collapse behind Ray.

Revealing mistake: When Carol suggests they introduce themselves to the Klopeks and Ray respends you can see Rick Ducummon in the background failing to stifle a laugh.

Answer: I watched the YouTube clip. The closed captions interpret it as, "Hey, Ricky, get this limo out of your yard." Listening to it, however, it sounds like he says, "lame-o" (as in a lame person) rather than "limo."

The closed-caption setting on YouTube is voice-activated, and it often displays typos and "approximate" words when it doesn't recognize the audio output (especially slang terms). In that scene, Rumsfield yells, "Hey, Ricky, get this lame-o out of your yard!" In response, Ricky puts his arm around his friend's shoulders and laughs, "Get out of my yard, Lame-o!"
