Dignan: What a lemon! One minute it's running like a top, and the next it's broken down on the side of the road. And I can't fix a car like this, because I don't have the tools! And even if I did have the tools I don't know if I could fix a car like this!

Anthony: One morning, over at Elizabeth's beach house, she asked me if I'd rather go water-skiing or lay out. And I realized that not only did I not want to answer THAT question, but I never wanted to answer another water-sports question, or see any of these people again for the rest of my life.

Anthony: You told, you told your friend Bernice I'm some kind of jet pilot?

Grace: What was I supposed to say, they stuck you in an insane asylum?

Anthony: It wasn't an insane asylum, Grace. I explained to you back then that it was for exhaustion.

Grace: Exhaustion?

Anthony: Yes, exhaustion.

Grace: You haven't worked a day in your life. How could you be exhausted?

Abe Henry: You know, Johnathan, the world needs dreamers.

Future Man: Excuse me?

Abe Henry: No, I don't think so. You know, John, one day I believe that you're going to wake up and realize you no longer have a brother. And you no longer have any friends. And on that day I'm gonna be standing front and center just laughing my fucking head off.

Abe Henry: [laughs] John!

[continues laughing]

Abe Henry: John!

Dignan: What do you think I was doing the whole time you were out there man? I told you Dignan got fired, out on his ass. But you didn't think about that, did you. In the end it's easier to think about yourself than it is to think about Dignan.

Dignan: We'll get him. We'll get him. Man, dont worry about that, we'll get him. And when we do, we'll blow up his car, do something. I can guarantee you that. What makes me furious is thinking about the look on Bob's fat face, thinking he pulled one over on us. I tell you another thing. If our paths cross again, you're gonna see a side of Dignan that you havent seen before. A sick, sadistic side, cause I'm furious at Bob.

Dignan: Bob Mapplethorpe, potential get-away driver: go!

Bob: Well, I think there's a real air of mystery about me.

Dignan: Don't complicate it. Your number one strength is you have a car you can provide. Sell yourself! Start over. Ready, go!

Bob: Okay, alright. I'm a risk taker! I'm growin' an entire crop of marijuana plants in my parents back yard! I think that shows...

Dignan: Wait, you're growing an entire crop of marijuana in your back yard?

Bob: Dignan, look. I'm just not very good at this selling-yourself stuff, okay? So, I'm just gonna tell you the truth. I really wanna be a part of this team. And I'm the only one with a car.

Dignan: That's good. That's good. 'Cause that hits me right here.

Anthony: So, did you enjoy your first visit to the nut house?

Dignan: Hey, hey, shh, shh, shh. Come on. Be sensitive to the fact that other people are not comfortable talking about emotional disturbances. Um, you know, I am, I'm fine with that, but... other people.

Bob: Anthony, I need to talk to you, man... Anthony, I have got to talk to you! Look, I am sorry about this, this seems like a nice soiree, but I have got a family situation.

[leaves the drug store]

Anthony: Well, you know, it's my fault. It's like, ultimately, Anthony, when are you gonna learn?

Dignan: Man, you got another ball. Should I play your game?

Anthony: [outside] The list, Dignan. I know you remember the list cause you signed it. You signed the things Dignan's not supposed to touch.

Dignan: The thing is I can't be sorting through all that shit in the middle of a burglary.

Anthony: Hey, hey, I don't care, okay? I bought the earrings for my mother on her birthday. I went down, I picked em out myself.

Dignan: Hey, one thing is, every valuable item in the house was on that list.

Anthony: Hey, maybe, we should've robbed your house. Did you ever think of that? No, I bet that never crossed your mind.
