Quotes

Ricky: [looking under the hood of Tom and Lisa's car] Hey, Alex I found it. The alternator wire's loose.

Alex: [sarcastic] Wonderful, Ricky. Wonderful!

Ricky: I'll have it fixed in a minute.

Alex: Take your time. Take your time.

Ricky: Why?

Alex: [serious tone] Why not? It's too late to go boogying anyway.

Ricky: Too late? No, come on. What are we going to do? The night's still young.

Alex: Well... I hear there's a party. You up for a party?

Lisa: I told you, it's not a party.

Alex: Well, when we get there, we'll make it one.

Lisa: You want me to dance with you at the party?

Alex: Oh... you'll dance all right.

Lisa: I've never been to confession, and for curious people, who have a knife in their hand, I feel only pitty!

Ricky: Earlier, while you were out, the police showed up here. It was Turner. That crud that's always snooping around. He was looking for a stolen black Lincoln. By the time he got here, the car was already gone. Pretty lucky, huh?

Alex: It's not hard to be lucky. For example, you go down to the corner bar for a drink and that particular cop happens to be there. So you start telling a story to the barman or the person sitting next to you about this guy who snooped around too much. And in order to get even with him, the guys he was investigating took it out on his family. And you tell it loud enough so the cop can hear.

Ricky: So what does he do?

Alex: He doesn't do anything. He drinks his beer and he leaves. You see he's got two girls at home. 15 years old.

Ricky: [laughs] Shit, you can really handle things, Alex. I've never had a friend like you.

Lisa: I've never been through this part of the city.

Tom: A shortcut. We just have to cross the GW Bridge and it's about three minutes to Exit 9.

Lisa: Will Gloria, Howard and Glenda be there already?

Tom: So I assume. Howard said that they were leaving early so I gave him the key.

Lisa: So they can spend more time being bored.

Tom: I can see it now. Glenda will start sighing, so Gloria and Howard will run upstairs and start screwing!

Lisa: Exactly!

Tom: Oh that's a relief! That God you're still open. My car just started making these noises.

Alex: Sounds like it's running fine to me.

Tom: I don't know. Maybe it's something with the electical system.

Alex: If it's the electrical system, it's going to take about three or four hours to fix... and I'm going boogying!

Tom: [pulls some cash out of his wallet] Will 20 do it? I'm in a hurry.

Alex: I know what it's like. It's a bitch when you car breaks down. Especially if you're in a hurry.

Tom: Here's $40. Will you fix it now?

Alex: You don't know too much about cars, do you?

Tom: No, I don't.

Alex: I'll tell you what... I'll give you my own do-it-yourself handbook and you can fix the car... while I go boogying! Or... you can take this $40 and hire yourself a limousine and you'll be home in no time flat.

Ricky: Alex, will you lend me 20 bucks? I need to be covered.

[Alex looks at Ricky's cards and lends him a $20 bill]

Ricky: [lays down his cards] Three aces.

Tom: [lays down his cards] Not good enough. Flush. Want to play another hand?

Ricky: I'm clean. You guys cleaned me out.

Alex: [hands Ricky a $100 bill] Here. Let's play one more hand. Be careful, Ricky. They're taking you for a ride. These bastards wouldn't know a straight game even if they followed one home.

Glenda: What did you say?

Alex: You heard me, twat! You don't get a full house or a royal flush four times in a row unless you're cheating.

Tom: You shouldn't say those things. People like us could take it the wrong way.

Alex: Deal the cards, mister... where I can see 'em!

Lisa: At one point there I though we'd never make it.

Tom: Yeah, me too. The gun was harder to get at then I thought. It's like he had eyes in the back of his head.

Lisa: What matters is that it's all over.

Tom: But at what price? But then again... you found it exiting and real high, didn't you?

[Lisa leans towards Tom and gives him a firm but ambiguous look; Tom picks up a phone and dials a number]

Tom: [into the phone] Hello? Police?
