Look Who's Talking (1989)
Mollie: I was artificially inseminated.
James: Are you a lesbo?

James: Okay, if you're the father then maybe you can answer me these questions. What's Mikey's favorite cereal?
Albert: I don't know.
James: Cheerios. How many diapers does he go through a day? About six. Who's his favorite rock star? Michael Jackson. Don't you think a father should know some of these things?
Albert: Okay how much is she paying you? 5 dollars an hour?
[Gives James a 20]
Albert: Here go play some video games.
James: Don't give me that shit.
[They start fighting]

James: Mind if I borrow some of this?
[takes Mikey's bottle and pours the milk into his coffee cup]
James: Thank a lot, man.
[drinks coffee]
Mollie: Hey, you know, that's breast milk.
James: [spits out coffee] Really, now?
[turns to Mikey]
James: Why didn't you tell me?
Mikey: Hey, man, you're on your own.

James: Whoa! You really got your figure back, didn't you?
Mollie: This is not my figure!
James: Well then, you got Dolly Parton's figure back!

James: You don't look so hot.
Mollie: Why don't you try squeezing something the size of a watermelon out of an opening the size of a lemon and see how hot YOU look?
James: Ouch! Guess I'd better call my mother more often!

James: Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?
Mikey: Yeah. Lunch!

Mollie: Where are the parachutes?
James: Parachutes? There are no parachutes.
Mollie: No parachutes? Didn't you ever see 'Sweet Dreams'? 'The Buddy Holly Story'? 'La Bamba'?
James: There's a big difference. They're, like, rock legends, and we're not.

James: It's weird, isn't it? You spend the first nine months trying to get out and the rest of your life trying to get back in.

Secretary: Is he yours?
James: Yeah, but they don't know who the real mother is yet.

[Mikey says Daddy]
James: He- he said Daddy!
Mollie: I think he called you Daddy.
Mikey: [sarcastically] No, I'm talking to hear myself say it!

James: Look, you gotta use Lamaze. It works. My sister-in-law used it. You don't use drugs, and it's better for the kid.
Mollie: You know, the only people who say stupid things like that are men, because they're idiots!

Mollie: Hey, slow down! The first stages of labor can take hours!
James: Yeah, so can the mid-town traffic!

James: [returning her purse] You never look through that thing, do you?
Mollie: Why do you say that?
James: 'Cause you're still carrying around your diaphragm.

Mollie: Screwing with the mail is a federal offense.
James: Stealing mail's a federal offense, not screwing with it.

James: I teach.
Mollie: What do you teach? Taxi Driver's Ed?

Mollie: Don't smoke that around my baby! Don't you know there's a sixty-two percent higher rate of getting cancer for non-smokers who live with smokers?
James: What are you trying to say? You don't want me to move in yet, or what?

Mollie: Dr. Spock does not just want to sell a book! Dr. Spock loves us. During the Vietnam War, Dr. Spock was out protesting in the streets!
James: God, I'm sorry I said anything about Dr. Spock, okay.
[to Mikey]
James: I can't believe she's getting that upset about a Vulcan. Big ears, no emotions, right?

[Molly learns to fly]
Mollie: Oh, what a good sensation!
James: It's like great sex, isn't it?
Mollie: I personally wouldn't remember.

James: Oh, baby, I have myself a hot date tonight.
Mollie: You better call your hot date, because I don't know how late I'm going to be.
James: [snorts] Oh, yeah, right. You're going out with an accountant, right?
Mollie: Yes.
James: Nine-thirty, tops.
Mollie: Don't count on it.

Mollie: I don't know who I love. And you know something, it doesn't make any difference, because the only thing that matters to me is who's best for Mikey. And Albert is successful, he's responsible, and he's real good to his *other* kids.
James: I've seen you. I've seen you use Mikey to push other guys away, and now you're doing it to me! That's it! I've had it! Now get out!
Mollie: I live here!
James: I know it!
[pauses, then slams out the door]
Mollie: You get everything for free. Free long distance phone calls, free lunches. I think you're sort of a scam artist.
James: I know. I got the town wired, don't I? Baby, think about it. If we were poor, we could still live like kings.

James: Hey, Gerber Face, high five!

James: She called me a big kid. Yeah. She's probably right, too. I mean, you're one year old and probably my best friend in the world.

James: I think being a good father is keeping the mother happy so she doesn't drive the kids crazy.

Mollie: [comes home to see a mess] What happened?
James: Who's Albert?
Mollie: Why, was he here?
James: Is he Mikey's father?
Mollie: What?
James: You lied to me about the artificial insemination crap, didn't you?
Mollie: He was married. I wasn't supposed to tell anyone.
James: Do you love him? Do you?
Mollie: [James turns Mollie around] What?
James: Do you love him?
Mollie: I don't know. I don't know who I love. And you know something? It doesn't make any difference because all that matters to me is who's best for Mikey. And Albert is successful, responsible, and he's real good to his other kids.
James: [firmly] I don't want him seeing Mikey anymore.
Mollie: Oh no, now don't start pulling this on me! He's his son and he has a right to see him anytime he wants to!
James: Where the hell has he been all year?

Mollie: This has nothing to do with you! YOU are not his father!
James: Well I'm the closest thing that he's got to it.
Mollie: Oh please, look at you. You're like a big kid. Oh what, you really think you're responsible enough to be a father?
James: Responsible? You call getting pregnant by a married guy "responsible?" Oh that's good.
Mollie: Stop it!
James: You stop!
Mollie: YOU stop it!
James: No, you stop! I've seen you. I've seen you use Mikey to push guys away and now you're doing it to me! Now that's it, I've had it! NOW GET OUT!
Mollie: I live here!
James: I know it!
[pauses then leaves]

James: I see you staring at that. You must be thinking the same way i am.
Mikey: Lunch.
