Polly want a cracker? (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"Where's the bird, Wilson? I'm nearly bursting with Pirate pride here. Weevil wanna punch a cracker."
"What bird?"
...
"Polly's kidnapping is more than just a juvenile school prank. It is an act of terrorism."
"Wow. Polly wanna payback."

The origins of Polly the parrot and this expression are debatable, but it's come to signify a common phrase that parrot owners teach their birds when training the parrots to talk. Weevil varies the words a little and lets Wilson know that he feels like punching the little white kid who claims to have stolen the school mascot, Polly. And in the spirit of "Hey, if the joke was funny the first time, it'll be twice as funny the second time," Veronica reacts to emotional letters to the school newspaper about Polly's kidnapping.
