Murray: I don't have a personal problem with him! (Danny)
Bob Sweeney: Don't insult my intelligence, Murray! You hate this child, and I think I know why!
Murray: (closes the door) So I went out with his mother a few times. That was three years ago...it was nothing.
Bob Sweeney: Nothing. Really?

Murray: His brother probably put him up to it.
Bob Sweeney: I guarantee you 100% his brother did not put him up to this.
Murray: Whatever...I find that hard to believe.
