Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up on the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Monday evening:

DreamWorks ( DWA): "Sell it right now."

eBay ( EBAY): "Hearing pretty good things about the quarter. Near term, I am saying BuyBuyBuy."

Pfizer ( PFE): "SellSellSell. I know that guy who runs it is a nice guy, but I'm not about making friends, I'm about making some money."

Triquint Semiconductor ( TQNT): "The House of Pain."

Texas Instruments ( TXN): "There's one under 30 and I want to do a 'mon back* on. ... That one rocks."

JDS Uniphase ( JDSU): "I believe management has gotten rid of the bad divisions. They are starting to see some earnings growth." Cramer said "a stampede" could be coming in the stock. "I want you to buy the stock here."

OmniVision Tech ( OVTI): "That one's going lower. I want you to sell the stock."

IntraLase ( ILSE): "I know the patent stuff is good there. I would not give up on this stock." ( OSTK): "Talk about controversy. ... Mark Cuban is continuing to say this is the short of a lifetime. I wish the CEO Patrick Byrne would talk less about the shorts and focus more on the numbers."

Cemex ( CX): "Does anyone even realize how big a surplus Mexico is going to have? I'm not backing away from Mexico."

Lehman Brothers ( LEH): "I think Lehman Brothers is a steal here at 110. ... Split the darn stock; that's what we want."

Tessera Tech ( TSRA): "Tessera will not be part of the big tech rally."

ImClone Systems ( IMCL): "That was a longwinded preamble for a very simple answer. SellSellSell."

CMS Energy ( CMS): "I would do a 'mon back right here. CMS rocks."

Reliance Steel ( RS): "I want you to ring the register."

OSI Systems ( OSIS): "I like the medical device companies. I'm gonna bless it right here."

Syneron Medical ( ELOS): "I think it's a sublet in the House of Pain that could end soon."

Taser International ( TASR): "Taser's a train wreck. I think there's still more downside."

Energy Partners ( EPL): "At 26 bucks, that stock is a buy."

Motorola ( MOT): I like the Mote-ster. Do not be afraid of the pending earnings report."

Komag ( KOMG): "My cat was named Komag and it got run over. Let that be a lesson to you."

Lear ( LEA): "Done going down but don't buy it."

Sears Holdings ( SHLD): "Let's acknowledge the fact that a second buyback was announced today. ... The float is shrinking. I think the earnings will start going up. I'm feeling good about it. "
