Quotes

[Discussing Vanessa's new senior citizen boyfriend]

Vanessa: He has a five year plan.

Sonny: What is it? "Don't die"?

[at McDonald's]

Sonny: Okay, what do you want?

Julian: Cheerios.

Sonny: Cheerios? They don't got Cheerios. What else?

Julian: Lasagna.

Sonny: Lasagna? What the hell is the matter with you? Um, we'll take hot cakes and sausage...

Employee: Sorry, sir, we stopped serving breakfast.

Sonny: What are you talking about? We're FOUR seconds late.

Employee: No, you're 30 minutes and four seconds late. We stopped serving breakfast at 10:30.

Sonny: Aw, HORSESHIT!

Julian: But after my nap I always watch the Kangaroo Song.

Sonny: It's overtime right now and there's a penalty shot about to take place. This happens about once every ten years so...

Julian: Kangaroo song, kangaroo song, kangaroo song, KANGAROO SONG!

Sonny: ALLLRRIIIGGGHTT! God you were normal yesterday!

Sonny: Say "Happy Halloween".

Reluctant Trick-or-Treat Giver: Happy Halloween.

Sonny: Yeah, next year be prepared!

Homeless Guy: Sonny was real nice to the kid. Wish my father was like him. My father was a military man. Guess I wasn't such a good soldier. Anyways, when I was 35, he tried to give me a crew cut while I was asleep. I woke up, broke his arm, haven't seen him since. I'd rather live in a dumpster then under his freaky ass rules! (Notices a McDonald's bag in Sonny's hand) Anyways, I think Sonny Koufax should be acquitted of all the charges. If O.J. can get away with murder, why can't Sonny have his kid? (points at a black man) This guy knows what I'm talking about! No more questions!

[Julian and the Delivery Guy are learning how to read]

Julian: Electricity! Constitution! Philadelphia!

Nazo: Fish! Pony! Hip, Hip Hop, Hip Hop anonymous? Damn you! You gave him the easy ones.

Julian: ...but I wipe my own ass, I wipe my own ass!

Tommy: How long have you delivered food to Mr. Koufax?

Nazo: I deliver food for six years. Plus, I'm stripper. But I've gained weight so that's a problem.

Tommy: I see. And, in your experience, was Sonny a good father to Julian?

Nazo: Oh, yes. They make terrific pair. They went together like lamb and tuna fish.

Tommy: Lamb and tuna fish?

Nazo: Maybe you like spaghetti and meatball? You more comfortable with that analogy?

Homeless Guy: Yes, considering we're in America. I mean, if you don't like spaghetti and meatballs, why don't you get the hell out?

Nazo: Listen, I'll come down there and give you a crew cut, Mister.

Homeless Guy: Let's see your clippers.

Nazo: Not my problem your father was sick.

Homeless Guy: That - well - -Stop yelling at me! AAAhhhhhhhh!

Layla: So two guys you were best friends with in law school fell in love with each other?

Sonny: Yeah.

Layla: Is that strange for you?

Sonny: Uh, nothing changed really. They watch a different kind of porno now.

[Music playing in the background]

Layla: This is Styx.

Sonny: Yeah.

Layla: They've been my favorite band since I was, like, twelve.

Sonny: You're kidding me?

Layla: No, no, I can't help it, I just love them. My friends make fun of me all the time.

Sonny: My friends make fun of me all the time, too. I've seen them, like, twenty-five times. Tommy Shaw, when I was, like, sixteen years old, I was at the concert, he actually reached out and grabbed my hand, pulled me up on stage, and I got to do the robot voice for Mr. Roboto!

Corinne: What's this I hear about you doing laundry with my sister?

Sonny: Did she say we were doing laundry? Because where I come from, it's called "doing the hibbidy-dibbidy."

Corinne: We wasted the good surprise on you!

Ted Castellucci: Objection, Your Honor! The court is interested in the truth, not the opinion of the defendant's father.

Lenny: You want my opinion? My son is a moron.

Ted Castellucci: I withdraw my objection. Please proceed!

[Julian is taking a leak]

Julian: How come you're not going?

Sonny: Because I don't have to go. Only you and my grandfather go every thirty seconds.

Julian: I wipe my own ass.

Nazo: Me too.

[afternoticing Julian had wet the bed]

Sonny: My God, that's a shit load of piss.

Sonny: What's in the bag Corrine? Chicken wings? Booby tassles?

Sonny: Have a good sleep there, Corrine. Pleasant Hooters!

Nazo: This is bullshit! Should have same rules for everyone, no matter what age!

Sonny: What, you want a father figure? Stop pulling your sister's hair!

Sonny: Hey! You just made the biggest mistake of your life, baby. I know you're gunna be missing me when you have that big, white, wrinkly body on you with his loose skin and old balls... gross! Ugh!

Mr. Herlihy: Goddamn Jets!

Waitress: Hey, cutie! What are you doing here?

Julian: Watching football.

Waitress: Oh yea, who do you want to win?

Julian: The Goddamn Jets.

Sonny: [steps on Julian's Scuba Steve Doll] Ow, Scuba Steve! Damn You!

Sonny: Where's Kevin?

Corinne: Oh, he already left. He forgot to say goodbye to you.

Sonny: Then why are you here?

Corinne: I'm cleaning because you're useless.

Sonny: Then are you going to go to your Hooters reunion? And talk about who's ass sticks out the most while wearing your shorts?

Corinne: At least I can fit my ass in to my shorts, fatty.

Sonny: [Taking out leftover food from fridge] Speaking of fatty, whose is this?

Corinne: I don't know.

Sonny: I'm eating it then.

[Sonny is on the stand at the custody hearing for Julian]

Tommy: [stands up] Objection!

Lenny: Shut up, Tommy!

Tommy: [sits down] Sorry, Mr. Koufax.

Julian: [pointing to Vanessa's older lover] Sonny, is that the man with the old balls?

Sonny: [Julian is bouncing up and down in front of the TV on a rubber ball] Hey.

Julian: Hey!

Sonny: You like hockey?

Julian: You like hockey?

Sonny: This is a big, important game.

Julian: This is a big, important game!

Sonny: Cut the crap.

Julian: Cut the crap!

Sonny: I'm being serious, don't do that.

Julian: I;m being serious, don't do that!

Sonny: [quickly] How much wood would a wood chuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

Julian: [stops bouncing]

Sonny: That's what I thought. Shut up.

[Julian resumes bouncing in front of the TV]

Sonny: That was your girlfriend. She's Hooterific again.

[about the Kangaroo song]

Sonny: [to Julian] I can't take this shit. Are you serious?

[Julian continues jumping to the Kangaroo song]

Sonny: [under his breath; about the character in the song] Douchebag kangaroo.

Corinne: [Starts to whine and cry] We wasted the good surprise on YOU!

[Runs to bathroom and sobs]

Sonny: [Mocking Corinne] "We wasted the good surprise on you!"

Sonny: Having a kid is great... as long as his eyes are closed and he's not moving or speaking.

Sonny: I'm going through a rough patch in my life right now. Syracuse is 0 and 3. I got those medical problems.

Vanessa: Medical problems? A cab runs over your foot 2 years ago, you spend one night in the hospital.

Sonny: First of all that cab was huge. And a jury decided that one night of pain was worth two hundred thousand dollars, so there ya go.

Sonny: Congratulations! You and "Big Boobs" McGee are gonna get along just fine.

Kevin: Don't call her "Big Boobs" McGee.

Sonny: You're going to explain to your kids that you met their mother while she was waitressing at Hooters?

Kevin: Sonny that was five years ago! She's a doctor now, and my fiance. So from now on, Dr. "Big Boobs" McGee.

[Sonny is dressed up as Scuba Sam]

Sonny: Hi, Julian! How ya doin'? I'm Scuba Sam, Scuba Steve's father. You see, my boy needs to take a bath, the only problem is he's afraid to bathe alone. So, I was wondering if you'd keep him company in the tub.Terrific, and after your bath, you need to try and study hard because if you want to be in the Scuba Squad, you have to be smart.

Julian: I can be in the Scuba Squad?

Sonny: Well sure! All you have to do is work hard and don't tell a soul about the Scuba Squad because then everybody's gonna wanna join! Oh, and one more thing! Be nice to the Delivery Guy, will ya? It's not his fault he can't read.

Sonny: I got some interesting news?

Lenny: Oh yeah, what?

Sonny: I kind of adopted a kid

Lenny: What the hell are you talking about?

Sonny: I'm talking about you being a grandfather! Congratulations!

Lenny: Who the hell would give you a kid?

Sonny: Social Services.

Lenny: You idiot! You better give that kid back!

Sonny: His mother's... hang on, hang on.

Sonny: [shouts at Julian, from afar] Go play with them pigeons, buddy!

Sonny: I tried to give him back. I just, I just, I just can't, Dad. I need your help. I'm in a bad way right now, Vanessa dumped me, I don't know what the hell I'm doing!

Lenny: You damn right you don't know what the hell you doing!

Sonny: The kid is always around, especially for the last few days. You think he'd give me a little privacy but he just never leaves me alone, I'm in deep shit.

Lenny: Just give that kid back right now, before you ruin BOTH YOUR LIVES!

Sonny: Oh, I appreciate that Dad.

Lenny: He'd be better off living in a dumpster then living with you!

Sonny: WELL I'LL BE A BETTER FATHER THEN YOU!

Lenny: That's impossible, all you ever care about is yourself.

Sonny: I care about you saving money on this phone call.

Sonny: You can be scared that I might get pickpocketed in a bad neighborhood or break my legs skiing. But don't be scared about me being a dad, because I will not fail. I love this kid too much. I love him as much as you love me, Dad. I'm gonna give him advice and I'm gonna guide him and I'll be there whenever he needs me. I'll fly to New York to be at his court case even if I disagree with why he's there
