Owen: You don't have to blow her brains out or anything.
Larry: [Sarcastically] Thank you, that takes the pressure right off.

Larry: [referring to Owen's lousy murder mystery paper] It wasn't motivated.
Owen: Sure it was. The guy in the hat killed the other guy in the hat.

[Cut to bathroom. Momma slaps Owen]
Owen: Oh, Momma...
Momma: You're writing to her, aren't you Owen?

Momma: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Owen: And I'm gonna be a writer someday.
Momma: You know how that typing upsets me!
Owen: I'm sorry, Momma. A writer writes.

Larry: Who?
Owen: Your wife. She had a little trouble walking, but that was from the gardener.
Larry: You saw my wife?
Owen: She was kind of a tart Larry. Although I can see why you married her. She was very beautiful.

Larry: Why did you kill my wife?
Owen: I thought you wanted me to. That was the deal we made that night. You told me that hated your wife. You wished she was dead. I told you I hated my mama. I told you I wished she was dead. To told me to see that Hitchcock film about swaping murders. I figured I kill your wife and you kill my mama. That's fair.
Larry: I am not killing your mother. You have to turn yourself in.
Owen: I'm not turning myself in. That's not part of the plan.
Larry: What plan? There was never any plan, you moron! I am taking you to the police and you are telling them what you did! That's it and that's all! I don't want to hear another word!

Owen: Yeah!
Larry: Mmmhmm. All about you, me, and momma?
Owen: Yeah! Isn't it great?
Larry: Mmmm... YOU SON OF A BITCH, I'm gonna KILL YOU!
Owen: Wha... what? Don't! Do you want me to leave?
Larry: No, I don't want you to leave, I want you dead!
Owen: No, no, wait! Larry! Here! Take this! It's a copy of my book.
Larry: What is this, you wrote a pop up book?
Owen: Yeah! See, there's me, you, and there's momma. And see, this is the little train... TOOT TOOT!
Larry: You wrote a pop up book! Owen, this is the cutest thing I have ever seen!
