[Martin walks into his house, drunken, to find a group of strangers]
Oh great, I'm being robbed again, aren't I? Go Hamlet, kill, kill!
[Martin realizes his guard dog is soothed by intruders]
What have you done to my dog? You broke my dog!
You have a lovely house sir.
Thank you. What's, what's the number to the police?
Shhh! Don't tell him!
Wait! Before you do that, can you write right here, 'To Billie, I'll never forget last night... '

So this is not one of the best movies from the '80s, but it made a big impact on me because of Julia Roberts. I thought she was so cool, and I copied a lot of my fashion styles after her character in the movie (big hair and all). Being a child of the '80s I've been slowly collecting many of the classic comedies, and this one has been on my list for a while. So when I discovered last month that it was finally coming out on DVD and at a great price, I pre-ordered my copy. It has some really good moments and good one-liners, like when Julia Roberts' character, Daryle is told by one of the preppy guys she's seeing "You're different from the other girls", she responds "I can work really hard to be the same", or when Daryle is explaining to Billy that getting married is a natural thing, Billy responds "Dying is natural too, but you don't see people rushing to do that". So if you want to take a trip back to the '80s or if you're a Julia Roberts fan, this movie is for you.
