The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Frank: A mental mind fuck can be nice.

Frank: [singing] Whatever happened to Fay Wray / That delicate satin-draped frame / As it clung to her thigh / How I started to cry / 'Cause I wanted to be dressed just the same.

Frank: Give yourself over to absolute pleasure. Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh - erotic nightmares beyond any measure, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever. Can't you just see it? Don't dream it, be it.

Frank: [singing] I'm just a sweet transvestite, from Transsexual Transylvania.

Janet: What have you done to Brad?
Frank: Nothing. Why, do you think I should?

Frank: Do you think I made a mistake splitting his brain between the two of them?

Frank: Oh, I just love success!
Riff Raff: He's a credit to your genius, Master.
Frank: Yes!
Magenta: A triumph of your will.
Frank: Yes!
Columbia: He's okay!
Frank: Okay? Okay? I think we can do better than that! Well, Brad and Janet, what do you think of him?
Janet: Well, I don't like men with too many muscles.
Frank: I didn't make him for you! He carries the Charles Atlas seal of approval!

Frank: So come up to the lab and see what's on the slab. I see you shiver with antici... pation.

Frank: That's a rather tender subject. Another slice, anyone?

Frank: Enchanté. Well! How nice. And what charming underclothes you both have. But here. Put these on. They'll make you feel less... vulnerable. It's not often we receive visitors here, let alone offer them... hospitality.
Brad: Hospitality? All we wanted to do was to use your telephone, goddammit, a reasonable request which you've chosen to ignore!
Janet: Brad, don't be ungrateful.
Brad: Ungrateful!
Frank: How forceful you are, Brad. Such a perfect specimen of manhood. So... dominant.

Frank: How do you do? I see you've met my faithful handyman.

Frank: Don't dream it, be it.

Frank: One from the vaults... Don't be upset. It was a mercy killing. He had a certain naive charm, but no muscle.

Frank: Give yourself over to absolute pleasure.

Frank: Because I've seen blue skies, through the tears in my eyes. And I realize, I'm going home.

Frank: It's not easy having a good time! Even smiling makes my face ache!

Frank: In just seven days, I can make you a man. Dig it if you can.

Frank: He'll do press-ups, and chin-ups. Do the snatch, clean and jerk. He thinks dynamic tension must be hard work. Such strenuous living I just don't understand. When in just seven days, oh baby, I can make you a man.

Frank: He'll eat nutritious, high protein and swallow raw eggs... Tried to build up his shoulders, his chest, arms and legs. Such an effort, if he only knew of my plan. In just seven days I can make you a man.

Dr. Everett Scott: Janet!
Janet: Dr. Scott!
Brad: Janet!
Janet: Brad!
Frank: Rocky!
[Rocky grunts]
Dr. Everett Scott: Janet!
Janet: Dr. Scott!
Brad: Janet!
Janet: Brad!
Frank: Rocky!
[Rocky grunts]

Frank: It was strange the way it happened. Suddenly... you get a break! All of the pieces seem to fit into place. What a sucker you've been, what a fool. The answer was there all the time. It took a small accident to make it happen. AN ACCIDENT! And that is how I discovered the secret. That elusive ingredient, that... spark that is the breath of life... yes I have that knowledge! I hold the key to life... ITSELF!

Riff Raff: Master, Rocky has broken his chain and vanished. Your new playmate is loose and somewhere in the castle grounds. Magenta has just released the dogs.
Frank: Hmmm? Coming.

Frank: Well, really, that's no way to behave on your first day out. But, uhm, since you're such an exceptional beauty, I'm prepared to forgive you.

Frank: A weakling, weighing 98 pounds, will get sand in his face when kicked to the ground. And soon in the gym, with a determined chin. The sweat from his pores as he works for his cause. Will make him glisten and gleam. And with massage and just a little bit of steeeeeam... He'll be pink and quite clean. He'll be a strong man... Oh honey, but the wrong man.

Frank: But a deltoid and a bicep. A hot groin and a tricep makes me... ooo... shake! Makes me wanna take Charles Atlas by the hand.

Frank: I don't want no dissension. Just dynamic tension.
Janet: I'm a muscle fan.

Frank: Do you have any tattoos?
Brad: [offended] Certainly not!

Frank: I hope you're adaptable, Dr. Scott. I know Brad is.

Frank: Oo, I know he has a certain naïve charm... but NO MUSCLE!

Frank: [punishing Riff Raff for letting Rocky get away] How did it happen? I understood you were to be watching!
Riff Raff: I was only away for a minute... master.
Frank: Well... see if you can find him, on the MONITOR!

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: [singing] I'll tell you once, I won't tell you twice, you better wise up, Janet Weiss. Your apple pie don't taste too nice. You better wise up, Janet Weiss.
[Janet knees him in the balls and runs away]

Frank: Magenta. Columbia. Go and assist Riff Raff. I will entertain... err...
[chortles, extending hand to Brad]
Frank: ...?
Brad: Brad Majors.
[Shakes hands firmly]
Brad: This is my fiancee, Janet Vice.
Janet: Weiss!
Brad: Weiss.
[Clears throat]
Frank: Enchanté.
Janet: [Giggles]

Frank: Oh, come on Brad, admit it, you liked it didn't you? There's no crime in giving yourself over to pleasure. Oh, Brad, you've wasted so much time already. Janet needn't know - I won't tell her!
Brad: Well, you promise you won't tell?
Frank: On my mother's gra...
[voice trails off into gurgles as mouth becomes otherwise occupied!]

Magenta: I grow weary of this world! When shall we return to Transylvania, huh?
Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Magenta, I am indeed grateful to you and your brother Riff Raff. You have both served me well. You will discover that when the mood takes me... I can be quite generous.
Magenta: I ask for nothing, master.
Dr. Frank-N-Furter: And you shall receive it. IN ABUNDANCE!

Brad: I'm glad we caught you at home. Could we use your phone? We're both in a bit of a hurry. We'll just say where were are and go back to the car. We don't want to be any worry.
Frank: [singing] Well, you got caught with a flat/well, how about that? Well babies, don't you panic. By the light of the night/it'll all seem all right. I'll get you a satanic mechanic! I'm just a sweet transvestite/from Transexual, Transylvania. Why don't you stay for the night? Or maybe a bite? I could show you my favorite obsession. I've been making a man/with blond hair and a tan. And he's good for relieving my tension. I'm just a sweet transvestite from Transexual, Trasylvania.

Frank: Treat the cause, not the symptom!

Brad: It's an anagram, Janet.

[to Rocky]
Frank-N-Furter: You are the result of many hours of toil.
Audience: And wanking!
