Me, a little frantic: "It's getting later with every minute!"

Bill, with pause, and in perfect deadpan: "That's how it works."

Older brother to next younger brother who refuses to quit quoting Genie from Aladdin after lo these many years:

"You are living proof that living with Robin Williams would really suck."

Allen Boy: "What if somebody asks me what grade I'm in? Do I say I'm in Beta because Dad forgot to order Gamma?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Allen Boy: "My ankles are killing me!"

Me: "Those are your knees, son."
