Roger Dodger (2002)
Roger: Sex is everywhere!

Roger: Girls... Young women...

Roger: Have you met my nephew? His name is Jesus.

Roger: You drink that drink! Alcohol has been a social lubricant for thousands of years. What do you think, you're going to sit here tonight and reinvent the wheel?

Roger: I gotta get home, look for work. As we speak, consumers everywhere need reminding of just how fat and unattractive they are.

Roger: You can't sell a product without first making people feel bad.
Nick: Why not?
Roger: Because it's a substitution game. You have to remind them that they're missing something from their lives. Everyone's missing something, right?
Nick: I guess.
Roger: Trust me. And when they're feeling sufficiently incomplete, you convince them your product is the only thing that can fill the void. So instead of taking steps to deal with their lives, instead of working to root out the real reason for their misery, they go out and buy a stupid looking pair of cargo pants.

Roger: That's just spastic enough to be charming.

[Advice to some high school losers]
Roger: In ten years, you won't even remember what this place looks like. Trust me.

Roger: Do you think women have a clue what goes on up here? What do they think, it's all stock quotes, drill bit sizes? They don't know shit! Let's keep it that way.

Roger: If you feel compelled to contribute to the pathetic, heartbreaking predictability of it all, by all means...

Roger: I could tell you that what you think of as your personality is nothing but a collection of Vanity Fair articles. I could tell you your choice of sexual partners this evening was decided months ago by some account executive at Young & Rubicam. I could tell you that given a week to study your father and the ways in which he ignores you I could come up with a schtick you'd be helpless to resist. Helpless.

Roger: Natural selection, now that is a principle of nature, selection, something has to lose, something has to be defeated in order for something else to be selected

Roger: [about young men having control over young girls] Control? Look at your face!

Roger: Remember, angle of incidence equals angle of reflectives. In other words, if you can see them, they can see you. So be alert.

Donna: Is there any species that just has one gender... that doesn't have male-female?
Roger: Starfish for one.
Donovan: Next time I see a starfish, I'm gonna tell him to go fuck himself.

Roger: Why give into a slump? Let's go down swinging.
Nick: Yes. Like Michael Jordan.
Roger: Right. That's the wrong sport, but I like your enthusiasm.

Nick: I'll see you at the next funeral.
Roger: Why? Who's sick?
Nick: [lost] What? I'm kidding.
Roger: Me too.
