Anger Management (2003) Poster

Quotes

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Temper's the one thing you can't get rid of, by losing it.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: In Europe, it's not considered unusual for three of four men to share a bed.

Dave Buznik: That's why I'm proud to be an American.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Nate, didn't we decide that you shouldn't listen to the ballgame?

Nate: Don't worry, Doctor B. It's just a regular season game. Not that important. See, Iverson just missed a layup at the buzzer, Sixers lose. Who gives a crap, huh? I mean it's just a silly game anyways.

[his face scrunches up]

Nate: Ooooohhhh the anger sharks are swimming in my head! YOU GOTTA DUNK THAT SHIT! YOU GOTTA DUNK THAT SHIT!

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Stay with me. Stay with me. Repeat after me. Goosefraba.

Nate: Gooooose... blah blah

Dr. Buddy Rydell: No, not blah blah, Nate. Goosefraba.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: [throws a plate of eggs across the room] I SAID OVEREASY!

[pause]

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Now, why did I do that?

Dave Buznik: Because I refused to spoon with you last night?

Dave Buznik: [singing] I feel pretty / oh, so pretty / oh, so pretty and witty and...

[pause]

Dave Buznik: gay...

Lou: So my boss, he was talking to me about how many sick days I've taken. And I was like, you know 'Don't go there,' you know. But he kept on about wanting to see some kind of a doctor's note or something. And I said 'Look, I'm seriously serious. You *don't* want to go there. He kept talking and talking and being such a nag, and I just *blacked out.* I blacked out. And I woke up, and I was standing over him and I was screaming "I told you not to go there! I told you not to go there!"

Lou: Eskimos seem nice.

Chuck: Here's my phone number.

[Dave reads it]

Dave Buznik: "You're gonna die, bitch"?

Chuck: Oh, sorry. That's a letter I'm writing to Geraldo Rivera.

Chuck: Yeah? And I'm sure I just heard him mutter some kind of anti-Semitic remark.

Dave Buznik: Are you Jewish?

Chuck: I could be, but no. Half Irish, half Italian, half Mexican.

Chuck: What, do you think you're better than me, 'cause you got both your nuts?

Chuck: You come down here before the black wolf swallows my brain! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

Stacy: Uh, we're in the adult film industry, and, we're lovers.

Gina: Yeah.

Stacy: So Gina was having sex with this guy Meelo which was totally cool cause it was in the script.

Gina: So we invited him back to the house because we like a little variety...

Stacy: I look up and see Gina kissing Meelo on the MOUTH which is not cool, because it violates our threesome code of ethics!

Gina: So Stacy bit my toe off.

Stacy: Then Meelo starts yelling, calling me a crazy skank...

Gina: And nobody talks to my bitch that way.

Stacy: That's right.

Gina: So I stapled his lip SHUT.

Dave Buznik: Well, we've all... been there.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Dave assaulted a female flight attendant in mid-air.

Stacy: Nice.

Gina: I bet you beat her good.

Dave Buznik: I didn't beat anybody. I touched a woman...

Chuck: Liar, bullshitter, you're a WOMAN BEATER! And you can't admit it, because you're a deluded piece of garbage!

Dave Buznik: I don't know about all that but... now I know why you're here.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Let me explain something to you, Dave. There are two kinds of angry people in this world: explosive and implosive. Explosive is the kind of individual you see screaming at the cashier for not taking their coupons. Implosive is the cashier who remains quiet day after day and finally shoots everyone in the store. You're the cashier.

Dave Buznik: No, no, no. I'm the guy hiding in the frozen food section dialling 911. I swear.

Chuck: After I got back, I went through a rough time. Drinkin' booze, shootin' holes in the ceilin', screamin' myself to sleep... Finally, my parents said I had to move out.

Dave Buznik: So I'm guessing that's when you decided to shack up with your aunt.

Chuck: Don't get cute, wise ass... But, yes.

Dave Buznik: [recording his voice with the tape recorder] I'm feeling very angry right now, because I have only one bed and no couch.

Chuck: I'm in a mood, Dave. A bad mood, a very bad mood! I was fired from my ice cream truck job today! No more Fudgicles!

Dave Buznik: Kendra, even though I'd love to see you take that bra off because it represents a team I've hated my entire life, you gotta keep it on.

Kendra: Why?

Dave Buznik: Because I've got a girlfriend.

Kendra: [she becomes angry] I'm not a child Dave. If you think I'm a porker, then just come right out and say it.

Dave Buznik: No no no, I don't think you're a porker.

Kendra: Well then why when the idea of sleeping with me comes up, you all of a sudden have "a girlfriend."

Dave Buznik: Because I do, I do. I do have a girlfriend.

Kendra: Said the liar to the beached whale!

Dave Buznik: You're not a beached whale! If anything, you could even afford to gain a few pounds.

Kendra: Oh, so now I'm too skinny for you?

Dave Buznik: No, no, no, no I didn't mean that.

Kendra: Is this what you want, Dave?

[stuffs her face with brownies]

Kendra: If I put on a few pounds, would you be able to stifle your vomit long enough to have sex with me?

Dave Buznik: Holy shit.

Older Arnie Shankman: Did you get it on with my sister?

Dave Buznik: Over and over again. And she moaned like a wildebeast.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Wildebeast!

Dr. Buddy Rydell: So, Dave. Tell us about yourself. Who are you?

Dave Buznik: Well, I'm an executive assistant for a major pet products company.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: [interupts him] Dave, I don't want you to tell us what you do. I want you to tell us who you are.

Dave Buznik: Oh, alright, um... I'm a pretty good guy. I like playing tennis on occasion.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Also, not your hobbies Dave. Just tell us who you are.

Dave Buznik: [stumped] Maybe you could give me an example of what a good answer would be? Um...

[to Lou]

Dave Buznik: What did you say?

[the group laughs]

Dr. Buddy Rydell: You want Lou to tell you who you are?

Dave Buznik: No, I just, uh... I'm a nice, easy going man, I might be a little indecisive at times...

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Dave, you're describing your personality. I just want to know... who you are.

Dave Buznik: [snaps] I don't know what the hell you want me to say!

[the room falls silent]

Linda: How 'bout a kiss?

Dr. Buddy Rydell: I'd love a kiss.

Dave Buznik: I think she's talkin' to me. And, uh, I think I can handle it.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Now then we need to go over some ground rules. You are to refrain from any any acts of violence including verbal assault and vulgar hand gestures. You may not use rage enhancing substances, such as caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, crack cocaine, slippy-flippy's, jelly stingers, trick sticks, bing bangs or flying willards.

Dave Buznik: How about fiddle-faddles?

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Under my supervision. Also, if you are unable to stop masturbating, please do so without the use of any pornographic images depicting quote, unquote 'angry sex.' That having been said, I'm a pretty good guy and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how much fun we can have together.

Dave Buznik: Geez, without slippy-flippies or angry masturbating I don't see how that's possible.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Sarcasm is anger's ugly cousin, Dave. From now on, unacceptable.

Lou: I have a question: Why is it that Chuck here thinks he could smoke?

Bobby Knight: Anger? Isn't this sexaholics anonymous?

Dr. Buddy Rydell: I want you to approach Miss Thing again...

Dave Buznik: No!

Dr. Buddy Rydell: ...with confidence! And if she says no this time, I will admit that I am a failure as a therapist and I will release you from my program.

Dave Buznik: You'll release me from your program

[Buddy nods]

Dave Buznik: Okay...

Dr. Buddy Rydell: [They stand up] Just go over there and repeat the following verbatim. "I'm sorry I was so rude before but it's difficult for me to express myself when I am on the verge of exploding in my pants."

Dave Buznik: Huh?

[They sit down]

Dave Buznik: Get outta here.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Trust me Dave. If you were calm as well as witty, she will respond.

Dave Buznik: I think witty went out the window with that whole pants-explosion thing.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: My offer stands.

Dave Buznik: So if I repeat that crazy shit you probably stole from a porno flick, you sick bastard, and get rejected, you'll release me from the program?

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Exactly.
