This is an good idea thought up by Antranig.What you do is take a Newsies quote and change it so that it would alter the outcome of the movie (usually rather dramatically). Anything goes, and they're usually pretty funny.

Sarah: (walks to edge of roof)
Jack: (runs up and pushes her over)

Dave: "I guess we'll never know."

Mush: "Look, we got no choice. So let's go get our lousy papes while they still got some, huh?"
Jack: "Okay!" 


 Jack:  The Refuge is this jail for kids.  The guy chasing
me is Snyder.  He's the warden.
Les:  You were in jail?  Ew!  I'm not selling with you, you filthy


Sarah: "Are you hungry?"
Jack: "No."
Sarah: "Darn.  So much for my suckup plan."

David: "I paid for 20 and only got 19."
Weasel: "Oh my gawd!  You're right!  I am soooo sorry."


Weasel: "World employees only on dis side of the gate!"

Jack: "Well you tell us what to do, Dave."

David: "No! Think of your own ideas."


David: "Sure, after you take our demands to Pulitzer."
