Quotes

Ed: Do you own a video camera?

Renee Madison: No. Fred hates them.

Fred Madison: I like to remember things my own way.

Ed: What do you mean by that?

Fred Madison: How I remembered them. Not necessarily the way they happened.

Mystery Man: We've met before, haven't we.

Fred Madison: I don't think so. Where was it you think we met?

Mystery Man: At your house. Don't you remember?

Fred Madison: No. No, I don't. Are you sure?

Mystery Man: Of course. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now.

Fred Madison: What do you mean? You're where right now?

Mystery Man: At your house.

Fred Madison: That's fucking crazy, man.

Mystery Man: Call me. Dial your number. Go ahead.

Mr. Eddy: [to a tailgater after running him off the road] Don't tailgate! Don't you fucking ever tailgate! Do you know how much space is needed to stop a car traveling at 35 miles per hour? Six car lengths! Six fuckin' car lengths! That's a hundred and six fuckin' feet, mister! If I had to stop suddenly, you woulda hit me! I want you to get a fuckin' driver's manual, and I want you to study that motherfucker! And I want you to obey the the goddamn rules of the road! Fifty-fuckin' thousand people were killed on the highways last year 'cause of fuckin' assholes like you! Tell me you're gonna get a manual!

Mr. Eddy: How you doin' Pete?

Pete Dayton: Okay.

Mr. Eddy: I'm sure you noticed that girl that was with me the other day, good lookin' blonde? She stayed in the car? Her name is Alice. I swear I love that girl to death. If I ever find out that somebody was making out with her, I'd take this...

[pulls out a .357 pistol]

Mr. Eddy: ...and shove it so far up his ass it would come out of his mouth. Then you know what I'd do?

Pete Dayton: What?

Mr. Eddy: I'd blow his fuckin' brains out.
