[Enid takes Rebecca to a "party" at Seymour's place, which is really just a gathering of nerdy record collectors]

Steven, the Asian Guy - Record Collector: But CDs will never have the presence of an original 78.
Jerome, the Angry Guy - Record Collector: Wrong! A digital transfer adequately mastered will sound identical to the original. Do you have a decent equalizer?
Steven, the Asian Guy - Record Collector: I have a Klipsch 2B3.
Jerome, the Angry Guy - Record Collector: [talking with his mouth full] Well, obviously the problem! You expect a 10 band equalizer to impart state-of-the-art sound? Dream a little dream, it's never gonna happen!

John Ellis: You really want to fuck up the system? Go to business school. That's what I'm going to do. Get a job in some big corporation and, like, fuck things up from the inside.
Enid: You know, I'm not even trying...
John Ellis: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah. Hey, do you have my money?
[she pulls a dollar bill out of her pocket, scrunches it up and throws it at him. It bounces off his face]

Enid: You know, that tape sucked by the way.
John Ellis: Oh, I'm so sorry if it offended Jew.
Enid: Go die, asshole!
John Ellis: Get a job.
Enid: God! Fuck you!
Rebecca: Can we go now?
Enid: You know, it's not like I'm some modern punk, dickhead! It's obviously a 1977 original punk rock look, but I guess Johnny Fuckface over there is too stupid to realize it!
Rebecca: I didn't really get it either.
Enid: Everyone's too stupid!

Rebecca: [about 'Weird' Al] I want to make love to him.
