Quotes

Earl Sinclair: As you can see, I have separated all known dinosaur wisedom into three catagories: Animal. Vegetable. Rocks.
Robbie Sinclair: What about fire?
Earl Sinclair: Vegetable.
Charlene Sinclair: What about water?
Earl Sinclair: Water is the opposite of fire, which we have previously established as a vegetable. What's the opppsite of a vegetable? Fruit. So, water is a fruit. Fruit is not a vegetable, so it has to be either an animal or a rock. We know it's not an animal, therefore, fruit is a rock.
Charlene Sinclair: Daddy, I asked you about water.

A funny classic from the early 90s
11 June 2018 | by brian-linton1See all my reviews

I am currently watching the series from beginning to end. This is the funniest episode so far,( the one before this was also quite good) It reminds me of the Simpsons with some of the writing. I picked this up for really cheap and so far I am surprised at how well done the show is in all aspects! Hopefully there are more episodes with this quality level.
