Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: Too many extracurricular activities, Max. Not enough studying.

Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: - We don't offer a post-graduate year.
Max Fischer: Well, we don't offer it yet.

Ernie: What kind of fish?
Max Fischer: Barracuda, stingrays, electric eels, trout, hammerheads, piranha, giant squid, octopi...

Max Fischer: Yes, I'm talking to a guy in South America.

Herman Blume: Come work for me.
Max Fischer: What do you mean?
Herman Blume: I mean I-I could use someone like you.

Herman Blume: Dirk?
Dirk: I know about you and the teacher.
Herman Blume: Does Max know?
Dirk: No, and I don't want him to know, ever. I just want it to stop right now. You're a married man, Blume. You're supposed to be his friend.
Herman Blume: Look Dirk, I am his friend.
Dirk: Oh yeah, and with friends like you who needs friends? (spits on Herman's car)

Herman Blume: She's my Rushmore.

Herman Blume: What's the secret, Max?
Max Fischer: The secret?
Herman Blume: Yeah, you seem to have it pretty figured out.
