Felicity King: That hussy probably knocked him in the head then robbed him.
Sara Stanley: Oh sure, then she kissed him, praised him for his courage, then ran off into the night...some robbery!

Felicity: The tramp! How dare she take advantage of poor Gus like that.

Sara: See how noble Gus is?

Hetty King: Ezekiel Crane! That man couldn't find the sky if he were lying face upwards on a raft in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Olivia Dale: He's a nice-looking boy. He cuts a fine figure.

Gus Pike: Well, mister, the idea is that you have it before you want it yet.

Felix King: How's your arithmetic? You could be a clerk at the Carmody bank.
Gus: All right till I run out of fingers.

Felix: Come on, Gus! You've got to tell me what's going on! If you don't, Felicity will pluck out my eyelashes one by one.
Gus: Put that away, Felix! Miss King says smokin' at a tender age indicates vulgarity. I shoulda known you were sent to skype me out.

Cecily King: I know, stay here in case Digger comes back...which he never does.

Felix King: He must be breathing out of his ears!

Felix: Look, Aunt Hetty! I'm arrested!

Felix: Just when I was beginning to feel like a real criminal.

Felicity: I intend to set my sights much higher than a dirt-covered boy who lives in an old lighthouse!
