Quotes

[at the cemetery for a funeral]

John Kelso: Why didn't you come in?

Minerva: I never enter the office on Sunday. Ba-a-d juju.

John Kelso: I've only been here three days and it's just a shooting, but give it time, okay. This place is fantastic. It's like Gone With the Wind on Mescalin. I know you're my agent. Listen to me, they walk imaginary pets here, Garland. On a fucking leash. Alright? And they're all heavily armed and drunk. New York is boring!

The Lady Chablis: It's like my mom always said: "Two tears in a bucket, motherfuck it."

John Kelso: I'll have to remember that one.

John Kelso: You know I'm straight.

The Lady Chablis: So am I. Straight to my house. Let's go.

Jim Williams: Yes, I am "nouveau riche," but then, it's the "riche" that counts, now isn't it?

Jim Williams: Livin' here pisses off all the right people.

Jim Williams: Which conversation shall we join?

John Kelso: The one least likely to involve gunfire.

Minerva: To understand the living, you got to commune with the dead.

Jim Williams: Sport, truth, like art, is in the eye of the beholder. You believe what you choose and I'll believe what I know.

Mandy Nichols: If you're thirsty, a drink will cure it, if you're not, a drink will prevent it. Prevention is better than a cure.

Joe Odom: Joe's rule number two: If you have to leave a party, you always take a traveler.

The Lady Chablis: Yes, I am a bitch, and proud of it, honey.

John Kelso: Hey, Joe, what happened?

Joe Odom: Oh, that Jim Williams went and shot somebody. Canapé?

Jim Williams: Well, that's a very genteel way of asking if I come from old money.

John Kelso: Do you?

Jim Williams: No. I was born in Gordon, Georgia, a little town outside of Macon. My father was a barber, sometimes house builder. My mother was a secretary. What money I have is about eleven years old.

Jim Williams: This is the dagger that Prince Yussopov used to murder Rasputin. He sliced off his cock and balls with it. True story, and deliciously evil, don't you think?

Woman at party: And there was Lyman, bleedin', sprawled in his favourite chair. You know, everyone knew our marriage was a disaster. If I'd so much as touched that gun, they'd have charged me with murder!
