Benjamin: I am the one who gets the emails about your lack of effort, man. Okay? You either know where the book is or you don't.
Son: Dad, its whatever. Look, I will know it when I get to school
Benjamin: You know what, whatever is the laziest word of the twentieth century, alright. I have had it with whatever; I don't want to hear it again in this century ever again. Whatever is over.
Rosie: He says it all the time. He won't have anything left to say in this century.
Benjamin: I am not letting you out of the car until I get a new word. You know you got to focus man, if you focused as much on your homework as you do on your artwork, you would have it all. But as it is…
Son: Dad, I finished the seventh hour.
Benjamin: You're going to get an F.
Son: Pernicious
Benjamin: Thank you. Good word
Son: Dad, nobody is going to give an F to a kid whose mother died six months ago.

Rosie: Yaaay...
Mr. Stevens: Yaaay…

Mr. Stevens: It was a fully… (Lion roaring) woooh, ha ha, okay
Benjamin: Man!!! Totally scary (looking at Rosie).
Mr. Stevens:  This was a fully functioning zoo until two years ago then it was shut down. The state's been maintaining it for now just to keep it up, keep it going. You know.

Benjamin: Could I buy the property and then just relocate the animals?
Mr. Stevens: Well actually, the State is selling the property with the stipulation that whoever comes on board and buys the property is going to care and maintain these endangered animals.
Benjamin: Oh come on…
Mr. Stevens: …and then there is the remaining staff on board and … you know. If no one buys this property soon, these animals will probably, have to be… Uh… (Mr Stevens and Benjamin look at Rosie)
Benjamin: Well, thanks. I mean I don't know anything about animals, zoos. I mean, it's...
Mr. Stevens: It is.
Benjamin: It is what it is.
Mr. Stevens: It is what it is. Sometimes you don't know what it is until you see what it is. You know? Once you see what it is, then you can figure out... is... it is what it is. You understand?
Benjamin: No, but we can move on.

Mr. Stevens: Yeah.
