Flirting with Disaster (1996)
Mel: I don't think you know me well enough to call me "Neurotic Guy".

Nancy: No thanks, I'm not hungry.
Mel: Come on, Nance, you're always hungry.

Mel: Oh, so I'm 'Neurotic Guy', is that my designation?

Mel: [to Agent Tony] You got a lot of nerve. You come in here, you lick my wife's armpit. You know... I'm going to have that image in my head for the rest of my life with your tongue in there.
Nancy Coplin: You deserve it.

Mary Schlichting: Oh, he was such a cute baby.
Richard Schlichting: It would've been kinda nice... if he had, like, a third eye right there, you know? You know, you know, a third eye is a symbol of enlightenment. You know, he's not- he's not, he's not getting it. He's...
Mary Schlichting: Mel... identity is nothing but a mental construct.
Mel: Mental construct?
Richard Schlichting: Have you ever read any Tibetan Buddhism, like Chaos theory?

Tina: Do you worry about the risk factor involved in gay sex?
Agent Paul: You know, it may be news to you, but not every gay man has, uh, anal sex. That's where a lot of the HIV risk lies.
Agent Tony: For example, I'm very anal. Uh, I-I mean, in, uh, in the sense... that I'm compulsively careful and clean about what touches my body. Not into penetration, at all.
Mel: Okay, do we have to talk about this right now?
Nancy Coplin: Well, why not? Are you a homophobic?
Mel: No, I...
Nancy Coplin: I think it's interesting.
Mel: Really? Well, I think in front of the baby we shouldn't.
Agent Paul: Nancy's just testing the risk factor for sex with Tony, Mel.
Mel: What?
Agent Tony: Paul, don't patronize her.
Agent Paul: I'm not patronizing her.
Agent Tony: She knows that I came of age in the era of AIDS... and even though I'm bisexual I've been incredibly careful, okay? Tested negative three times in the last seven months.
Nancy Coplin: Really?
Agent Paul: Runway ready for takeoff.
Agent Tony: If I remember correctly. Yeah, three times.

Sheriff: Bobby, take these forms back to the office, these release forms and get these nice people their car keys. This is all over here. This is a Federal agent here, and he just told me the whole story about the Shlytings.
Mr. Coplin: Schlitinooks.
Sheriff: Shitkings.
Mrs. Coplin: No, Schlichtings
Sheriff: Well, anyway, it's clear that we have the wrong people here.
Mel: That's what I've been trying to tell this guy for the last half hour.
Mrs. Coplin: Thank God for this Federal agent. And by the way, w-w-why are you not wearing pants?
Agent Paul: I had an experience, that's why.
Mrs. Coplin: What do you mean?
Agent Paul: I resisted at first, and then it evolved and it continues to evolve for me.
Mrs. Coplin: I don't know what the hell he's talking about, but I got some jewelery somewhere, if you please.

Mel: You made LSD? Is that what you're saying?
Richard Schlichting: We made LSD.
Mary Schlichting: Yes, yes. We made acid.
Richard Schlichting: And we gave it out to people who needed it. You know that there are hundreds of pharmaceutical executives in this country... that are selling drugs, FDA approved drugs.
Mary Schlichting: On the open market.
Richard Schlichting: Over the counter with incredible side...
Mary Schlichting: Horrible side effects.
Richard Schlichting: Terrible side effects. And these people are not in jail.
Mary Schlichting: They're not in prison anywhere.
Richard Schlichting: They're, they're, they're in country clubs or playing golf. They're having drinks.
Mary Schlichting: They're running the country, Mel.
Richard Schlichting: You know, LSD shouldn't be a felony in the first place.
Mary Schlichting: It's not addictive.
Richard Schlichting: It doesn't lead to violent crime.
Mary Schlichting: It's really the only hope for the species.
Mel: Did you take acid while you were pregnant with me?
Mary Schlichting: You're not gonna bring that thing up, are you?
Richard Schlichting: You know the stuff they tell you about, you know, chromosome damage and all that stuff?
Mel: Yeah, I do!
Richard Schlichting: That's government propaganda.
Mary Schlichting: Total propaganda.
Richard Schlichting: They just want to get a hold of your head, that's all.
Mary Schlichting: I was relieved, though, when you came out in the hospital and you only had one head.
Mel: Very funny.
Richard Schlichting: [laughing] She- She kills me!
