Quotes

Lucy Impersonator: How about a pit-stop?

Owen Templeton: Sorry, this is a one way flight. There's a bathroom in the back.

Lucy: The latch is broken. Anyone could just walk right in.

Owen Templeton: So? Look, you ain't got nothin' these other Lucys haven't seen before.

Lucy: [man's voice] Not necessarily.

Enrico Pollini: Look at us go! We're zooming!

Zack Mallozzi: I told you! We're hauling ass!

Enrico Pollini: We're hauling ass! All righty!

Zack Mallozzi: Guess what I got back there.

Enrico Pollini: You just told me. Ass! We're hauling ass!

Bev Pear: Your daughter has to go to the bathroom!

Randy Pear: All right, all right, Jason, look in the back for an empty jar.

Bev Pear: A jar? Girls don't pee in jars.

Randy Pear: Oh, right. Sorry. Jason, we're gonna need a jar and a funnel.

[after losing the heart]

Enrico Pollini: I have lost my heart many times before.

[laughs]

Enrico Pollini: I make a joke to help you forget how screwed you are.

Kimberly Pear: [Kimberly needs to go to the bathroom] Dad, I'm prairie dogging it!

Randy Pear: What the hell does that mean?

Jason Pear: You know, like when a prairie dog sticks his head in and out of the ground.

Randy Pear: Oh.

[Five seconds later]

Bev Pear: Ugh!

Randy Pear: Ohh, god, I do not wanna picture that!

[Tracy gives Nick a can of paint while she's throwing debris on her cheating boyfriend's car]

Tracy Faucet: C'mon, open it!

Nick Schaffer: You know, Tracy, I really don't feel comfortable...

Tracy Faucet: [yelling] OPEN IT!

Nick Schaffer: [nervously] Okay.

[Donald Sinclair welcomes all the people who are invited to compete in the "race."]

Donald Sinclair: Excuse me. Thank you all for coming. I'm Donald Sinclair, I own this hotel. We don't have much time. There's a meteor the size of North Carolina heading straight for Earth. The impact is going to kill every thing and everyone on this planet. I built a bunker in the basement to this casino strong enough to withstand the blast. There's room enough for eight people. I have chosen the seven of you, plus me. When this is over, it'll be up to us to repopulate and re-civilize the planet.

[Everyone looks shocked for about 5 seconds, before Sinclair begins laughing hysterically]

Donald Sinclair: I couldn't resist! I'm sorry.

Kimberly Pear: [trying on sunglasses she found in Hitler's car] Look, I'm Mrs. Hitler!

Jason Pear: I can't believe it, Dad. You stole Adolf Hitler's Mercedes-Benz.

Randy Pear: Well, Hitler had it comin'. What goes around comes around.

Kimberly Pear: Dad, they're gonna be pissed.

Randy Pear: Eh, they're always pissed, Honey. They're Nazis. It's like it's their job.

Mechanic: [after making some repairs on Tracey's truck] There, it's done, but I still do't think she's gonna hold.

Nick Schaffer: About how much we owe you?

Mechanic: [shrugs] 500 bucks.

Tracy Faucet: What, for sand and 2 quarts and sealant? No, that's 20 bucks, tops. Here's 40, double that

[hands the mechanic 40 dollars and turns to leave]

Mechanic: [pulls a gun from, his belt] Hold it! Another little tool no mechanic should be without!

Nick Schaffer: Fine, here's your money

[gives him the money]

Nick Schaffer: . But you know what, Baraby Jones? What goes around comes around.

Tracy Faucet: This is so... un-Christian!

Mechanic: Un-Christian, HA! Well if the good Lord doesn't like the way I conduct business, let 'im say something! Let 'im gimme a sign.

[looks up and puts a hand to his ear]

Mechanic: Oh Lord, I'm here, and I'm listening! Helloooooo! A ha ha ha!

[Veera and her daughter drive past in the rocket car, and the mechanic's gas station collapses]

[a hotel employee hands Nick Schaffer his bill]

Nick Schaffer: What's this $110?

Hotel Clerk: Those are your in-room movies.

Nick Schaffer: No, I didn't watch any movies.

Hotel Clerk: Okay, let's see... Afro Whores.

Nick Schaffer: Afro Whores?

Hotel Clerk: You watched it... let's see... uh, 11 times.

Nick Schaffer: No, no, no...

Hotel Clerk: Afro Whores, 2:30. Afro Whores, 4 o'clock. Afro Whores, 5:30. It says in the morning you watched The Grinch for ten minutes and then switched back over to Afro Whores.

Nick Schaffer: I swear I didn't watch it. Okay? I was at a bachelor party. There were 35 people there. You can ask any of them. You have to take that off my record.

Hotel Clerk: This is not a record, sir.

Nick Schaffer: It... It's a delete.

Hotel Clerk: Okay, fine. How many times *did* you watch it?

Nick Schaffer: None! I didn't watch it!

Hotel Clerk: Are you sure? "Sizzling, three-way, backdoor action featuring two sexy soul sisters... "

Nick Schaffer: [screaming] I don't need to know what it's about! I did not watch it! I didn't.

[hotel clerk raises her eyebrows]

Vicki: So, what can I do for you, Harry?

Harold Grisham: Okay... here's what I want. First... we both get naked.

Vicki: So far so good.

Harold Grisham: Except... we're both wearing sailor hats. Then we get into a jacuzzi filled with Pepto-Bismol, I clip your toenails, and you shave my buttocks.

Vicki: What's that?

Harold Grisham: Naked... jacuzzi... Pepto-Bismol... toenails... shave my buttocks.

Vicki: Well, you have quite an imagination, Harry.

[after Sinclair has told them repeatedly to "go", to no avail]

Merrill: So, when you say "go", you mean, just go?

Donald Sinclair: Uh, begin, commence, start moving... theoretically you have been racing for about forty seconds now, and so far Mr. Schaffer is winning because he's nearest to the door.

Enrico Pollini: I am Enrico Pollini. Now, I know what you are thinking... Enrico is a girl's name.

Owen Templeton: No I wasn't.

Enrico Pollini: No pun intended.

Owen Templeton: What pun was that?

Tracy Faucet: So what's wrong with her?

Nick Schaffer: Who?

Tracy Faucet: Your sister. You said it was serious.

Nick Schaffer: Oh yeah... shark bite.

Tracy Faucet: Shark bite?

Nick Schaffer: Yeah.

Tracy Faucet: And they took her to Silver City?

Nick Schaffer: Yeah, they have a really good shark attack unit there.

Blaine Cody: Why don't 'oo

[you]

Blaine Cody: do it?

Duane Cody: Because, Einstein, one of us has to be the victim, one of us has to be the witness. What kind of a witness would you make? I'm your own brother, I don't know what the hell you're saying.

Vera Baker: We're not crazy, lady! We should've bought a squirrel, but we didn't buy a squirrel.

Merrill: Which is why we stole the rocket car.

The Squirrel Lady: They should have bought a squirrel.

Enrico Pollini: I am getting goose pimples.

[Bikers are hitting the car that Randy stole from the Barbie museum]

Randy Pear: Are you insane? This is Hitler's car.

[Tracy catches her boyfriend in a swimming pool with another woman]

Tracy Faucet: Did I come at a bad time, asshole?

Nick Schaffer: My grandfather used to say that good things take time, but great things happen all at once.

[an airplane flies past the Cody brothers as they check their map]

Duane Cody: Where the hell is the airport?

Enrico Pollini: Look! A drifter, let's kill him!

Merrill: I think this is some kind of scam!

Vera Baker: Oh good, a scam! We'll do it!

Gus the Cabbie: [listening to football on cab's radio] Confederate... confederate... THROW THE BALL! That's why you're not going to get drafted! You'll be lucky to play arena football in Barcelona!

Gus the Cabbie: [to Owen] You like football?

Owen Templeton: [nervously] Sure.

Gus the Cabbie: Did you happen to catch that, uh, Dallas game last week? You can't really call it a game, it was more of an obscenity, a crime against football. I lost twenty grand on that game! And they would have won! Now I gotta work TWO shifts because of that idiot! I mean, Stevie Wonder coulda done a better job callin' that game.

[Last Line]

Smash Mouth (Guitar: Let's hit the phones out there and crank it up, cause we are going to feed the whole world.

Harold Grisham: Vicki, you let go of this bag! Or I swear - I swear to God - I'll report you to the escort service!

Donald Sinclair: Uh, Mr. Grisham, what's going on?

Harold Grisham: The hooker! The hooker! The hooker is taking the money!

Donald Sinclair: What hooker?

Harold Grisham: Vicki! From the hotel!

High Roller: Pepto Bismol?

Harold Grisham: Vicki, I told you to wait in the car!

Donald Sinclair: What the hell is she doing there?

Harold Grisham: I brought her! I'm sorry, Mr. Sinclair. She said she liked me, but I'm beginning to think she was only interested in the money!

Donald Sinclair: Go!

Randy Pear: Jason, where did you get that?

Jason Pear: I found it under the seat.

Randy Pear: Give it to me. You can't play that.

Jason Pear: Why not?

Randy Pear: Because it's Hitler's harmonica. You can't play Hitler's harmonica.

Jason Pear: You're driving his car!

Randy Pear: Yes, but I'm not touching it with my mouth. I'm not sucking on the dashboard. I'm not getting his germs!
