Quotes

Andrew: [Andrew hands Joanna her earrings after they've drank tequila shots below decks with the crew] You best not lose these again, madam.

Joanna: [perplexed] Again?

Andrew: You will forgive me, madam.

[clearly mocking her]

Andrew: "Andrew! I seem to have lost my ruby earrings somewhere between 64th and 68th street, find them."

Joanna: [geniunely contrite] I've behaved so badly. I don't know how you put up with me for so long.

[Andrew raises his eyebrows]

Joanna: You've done so many wonderful things for me and I've never even once said thank you.

[beat]

Joanna: I'm sorry.

Andrew: [embarrassed] Apology accepted, ma'am.

[he turns away and to the sink]

Joanna: [following him] Everyone thinks I'm crazy around here. Do you think they're right?

Andrew: [turning around to face her] Oh no, madam. Oh no. You... most of us go through life with blinders on, madam. Knowing only that one little station to which we were born. But now you, madam, on the other hand, had the... rare privilege of escaping your bonds for just a spell. To see life from an entirely new perspective. How you choose to use that information, madam... is entirely up to you.

Annie: Mrs. Burbridge, would you come over here for a moment? Has it *escaped your attention* that these children have head to toe poison oak?

Adele Burbridge: Well no, I... well yes, but...

Annie: But WHAT? My children are in need of medical assistance! And you can sit here and smugly lecture me on the importance of tests? Tests which exist to pigeonhole childrens potential, a thing which cannot *possibly* be measured, least of all by anal compulsive HUNS! And my husband may be a "large child," but that's none of your business! And my children may be rotten, but they're MINE. And I think that they're bright, and sensitive, so I have no doubts whatsoever about their intelligence. I do however have *serious* doubts about YOURS.

Annie: I don't belong here, I feel it, don't you think I feel it. I can't do any of these vile things and I wouldn't WANT to. Oh, my life is like death. My children are the spawn of hell, and you're the devil. Oh God.

Dean Proffitt: But baby, we LIKE you.

Dean Proffitt: You know what your problem is? You are so goddamn bored, you have to *invent* things to bitch about! You don't have a single thing to do on this earth except for your hair! The closet was fine, you just needed something to fill up your useless, nail-polishing, toe-polishing, rich bitch, sun-tanning days!

[From the engine room, the crew, who have heard all of this, start cheering]

[after Joanna leaves her husband and Dean finds out all the money is hers]

Dean Proffitt: What could I possibly give you... ever... that you don't already have?

Joanna: A little girl.

Joanna: [on her yacht; she's about to call for caviar when Andrew brings it in] Well! I *almost* had to wait.

[she tastes it and makes a sick face]

Joanna: What is this gelatinous MUCK? Andrew, when I tell you to pack staples, must I specify that you are to pack *good* caviar and not this $1.99 fish bait? Caviar should be round, and hard, and of adequate size, and should burst in your mouth at *precisely* the right moment.

[Dean & Billy see Joanna's mugshot on TV]

Dean Proffitt: That's her

Billy Pratt: Who?

Dean Proffitt: THE BITCH!

Billy Pratt: [Seeing Grant leaving the hospital on TV] I can't believe he's skipping out on her

Dean Proffitt: Of course he's skipping out on her, it's his shot at freedom.

Billy Pratt: Maybe you should go down to the hospital and see if you can get some of your money back?

Dean Proffitt: Look, he's gone.

Billy Pratt: Not him, her.

Dean Proffitt: She doesn't even know who she is, you think she's gonna know who I am?

Dean Proffitt: [Dean turns around to walk away only to turn right back when he thinks of an idea]

Dean Proffitt: Billy, there is a God and he loves me!

Billy Pratt: You're not gonna shave your head, are you?

Dean Proffitt: No, i gotta go home and talk to my kids...

Billy Pratt: [interrupts] Dean, don't do this

Dean Proffitt: ...and I want you to take them shopping at the Salvation Army!

Billy Pratt: Dean, it's illegal... Dean you're crazy, you know that!

Annie: Tell me something about my life, Dean, something not horrible.

Dean Proffitt: Well uh... yeah, there was that time you were working at Burger Boy, and this kid started choking on a French fry, and everybody in the place panicked, including me, except you, you knew exactly what to do. You ran over to the kid and you gave him that Heimlech, you know,

[grunts]

Dean Proffitt: and puh! The kid puked up the fry and they named you Burger Boy employee of the month. They put your picture above the cash register and everything.

Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt: These gnats keep landing on my wet nail polish. I guess I'm supposed to walk around with their little corpses stuck to my fingers, is that it?... It's easy for you to say. You don't have to sit out here in the brine with your perm frizzing to oblivion. I look like a bushman.

Andrew: [who's been painting her toenails] ... I've finished, madam. Would you like me to put your jewelry back on you?

Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt: No, I'm still tacky.

Annie: They aren't mine...

Dean Proffitt: Oh I was sure you'd remember them!

Annie: I think I'd remember if I had 3 children...

Dean Proffitt: ...FOUR honey, don't forget little Joe!

Billy Pratt: I don't mean I wear 'em or anything. They belong to a girlfriend of mine.

Annie: But what about Gertie?

Billy Pratt: I strayed. See, I got lucky with this phone sex girl and I found one that takes personal checks; my truck doesn't have a backseat so I borrowed yours. Dean doesn't want you to tell Gertie so he's covering for me.

Dean Proffitt: [comes up to them] What's going on?

Billy Pratt: I confess. The jig is up!

Dean Proffitt: The jig IS up, Billy, I'm finally trying to tell her the truth.
