Dr. Crumble: Susanna, four days ago... you chased a bottle of aspirin, with a bottle of vodka.

Tony: You've been in a hospital?
Susanna: Yes.
Tony: Do you see purple people? My friend, he saw purple people. And so the state came and took him away. He didn't like that. Some time went by and, and he told 'em he didn't see purple people no more.
Susanna: He got better.
Tony: Nah, he still sees 'em.

Lisa: So, have you had your first Melvin yet?
Susanna: Who's that?

Lisa: Hey Torch.
Polly: Hey Lisa.
Lisa: Did you miss me?
Polly: Not much.

Susanna: Explain what? Explain to a doctor that the laws of physics can be suspended? That what goes up may not come down? Explain that time can move backwards and forwards, and now to then, and back again, and... you can't control it?
Dr. Crumble: Why can't you control it?
Susanna: What?
Dr. Crumble: Why can't you control time?

Susanna: You know, taking us for ice creams in a blizzard... makes you wonder who the real whack jobs are.

Janet: When they built this place they put the tunnels in so the loons didn't have to go anywhere in the cold.
Susanna: I must've missed that in the brochure.

Factual error: When Suzanna and Lisa are at Daisy's house, Daisy lays out money for Lisa so that she can get pancakes, and the bill she laid down is one of the NEW bills. This movie is set in the 60s so of course they wouldn't have the new bills, considering they didn't start making them until 1998.
