Freak: You need a brain and I need legs, and the Wizard of Oz doesn’t live in South Cincinatti.
Max: It sometimes seems like the whole world has just seen me on “America’s Most Wanted.”
Gwen: You see, my son, Kevin, has been called names and made fun of his whole life. When you’ve been made fun of as much, you find another place to live, and he’s found that place up here, in his mind. Kevin lives in a world of books, and words, and things I don’t even understand. I do know this: Kevin would trade it all for a chance to be normal, to have a friend, and to do what other kids do. Max Casey has given that chance. Well, I’m not going to let that get taken away from my boy.
Kevin Dillon: Every word is part of a picture. Every sentence is a picture. All you do, is let your imagination connect them together. If you have an imagination that is.

Kevin Dillon: Just think of it as Close Encounters of the Turd Kind.
