Maddie: Whoo! I just out-ran two dogs, a delivery truck, and the kid on the scooter who likes to race dogs and delivery trucks.Liv: Wow, you must be exhausted. Like, maybe you're too exhausted to kick, punch or chase me?

Maddie: I mean, I only do those things when you're meddling in my love life. And what have I told you... about meddling in my love life?
Liv: Umm, to... not do it?
Maddie: Exactly.
Liv: Okay, but what if you have a secret admirer, and I know who it is, because you have a secret admirer and I know who it is!
Maddie: Liv, I am not interested in dating anyone right now. And you know what? You're meddling. So I'm going to give you three choices: kick, punch or chase.
Liv: Um... kick! No, no, no! Chase! And I get a five-second lead.

Maddie Take all day, Liv. I'll still find you.
Josh: Mad Dog Rooney in da house! Well, outside da house, but close to da house! I guess I'm saying it's your house...
Josh: Weird? What? The J Man ain't weird, okay? Okay, I just called myself "The J Man". That's weird.
Josh: Maddie's tough. Luckily, I'm an actor. I can improvise. I can also make ordinary statements sound important.
Gemma: I am crazy jazzed that you're into ghost-hunting, and also you smell like a thunderstorm and I love it.
Liv: Oh! Yeah! That big basketball scene. I... totes forgot about that big basketball scene... that Josh is in... with the basketballs...
