Slap-chum

T-Bag: Oi, that was my last prawn, put it back.
T-Shirt: It's not a prawn, it's a pawn. Give it to me, and for your information that's a checkmate.
T-Bag: And for your information that's a slap-chum.
T-Shirt: You're a bad loser that's what you are.
T-Bag: I know, I know, talking of losers let's see what that pathetic pee-wee piffle-pants is up to.

Watch My Lips

Hamburger Guzzler: Watch my lips, turn out your bag.
Penny: Watch my lips. No!

It's quick and it's simple and it's foolproof

T-Bag: Hear that?
T-Shirt: Course I heard it, I'm not deaf.
T-Bag: Yeah, just stupid. I've got an idea and it's quick and it's simple and it's foolproof unless you muck it up of course so pin back your lugholes and listen.
