Memorable Quotes

Lindy: I have two days to see 23 monuments, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the 44th president.

Delia:Slow down there, Numbers! We're going to Washington D.C. Not Math-achusetts.

Lindy: I can't wait to leave this hotel!
Garrett: (Walks up to Lindy) I am never leaving this hotel!

President: There she is! There's my pup! (The dog jumps into his arms) Who's the greatest dog in the free world? You are, yes you are! We really gotta give you a name. (Sniffs) And a bath.
Garrett: Oh, my gosh! You're the president! And I'm not wearing pants!

Logan: Garrett, you do know the school trip is to Washington D.C, not Mars.
Garrett: Mars would be cleaner. Unlike a hotel, thousands of people haven't slept there, let alone gone to the bathroom there.
Logan: What are you going to do? Hold it in the whole time?
Garrett: No. This suit comes equipped with a 16 ounce potty pocket. Aah. Yup, that works.

Logan: I love that fresh hotel room smell.
Garrett: All I can smell is the strangers who were on that bed, and in that chair, and in that bathroom.
Logan: To be fair, I think I still smell that last one, too.
Garrett: I hate hotels. They make me nervous. I'm sweating. I need a cold drink. (Walks over to the fridge)
Logan: (on the bed) Ooh, this butt divot fits me perfect. Let's see what's on TV. Or out the window.
Garrett: I feel like pineapple juice, but I think the sodium in tomato might replenish me.
Logan: That thimble of pineapple juice is like 11 bucks!
Garrett: What?! That's highway robbery!
Logan: Put it back! Quick! The mini-fridge has a thirty second timer, and if everything isn't back exactly how it was, they'll charge you for it!
Garrett (gasps)
Logan: We don't have time for your weird gasp. Go!
Garrett: Help me! Help me put it all back! - Wait.
Logan: No, no, no. It's like a puzzle.
Garrett: You know I hate puzzles!
Logan: Where does the triangle chocolate bar go?
Garrett: I got this.
(The drink roles under the bed and they both panic)
Garrett: Do something! It's about to blow!
(Logan runs over to the fridge and puts the drink back in)
Logan: We did it.
Garrett: I'm exhausted. I really do need something to drink.
(Garrett opens the fridge, causing the buzzer to go off.)

Logan: Seriously? You brought your own air mattress?
Garrett: Oh, this is not just any air mattress. This is a germ-free portable sleep system. It emits a high frequency wave of sound that discourages bugs, bacteria, and dander.
Logan: What discourages you?
Garrett: While you wallow in hotel filth I will be sleeping on a cloud of sterile comfort.(Gets on mattress)
Logan: Or the floor. (Pops mattress)
Garrett: Please call my mother. I want to go home.
(Logan looks at Garrett annoyed.)

Logan: I met the greatest guy today. He's a senetor and he thinks I'm smart enough to work in goverment.
Lindy: I'm moving to Canada

Logan: Well, I'm done. I can check DC off my list.
