Quotes

Kirk Lazarus: I know who I am. I'm the dude playin' the dude, disguised as another dude!

Kirk Lazarus: Everybody knows you never go full retard.

Tugg Speedman: What do you mean?

Kirk Lazarus: Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed...

Kirk Lazarus: Man, I don't drop character 'till I done the DVD commentary.

Les Grossman: Now I want you to take a step back... and literally fuck your own face!

Kirk Lazarus: I don't read the script. The script reads me.

Tugg Speedman: There were times while I was playing Jack where I felt...

[pause]

Tugg Speedman: ...retarded. Like, really retarded.

Kirk Lazarus: Damn!

Tugg Speedman: In a weird way I had to sort of just free myself up to believe that is was ok to be stupid or dumb.

Kirk Lazarus: To be a moron.

Tugg Speedman: Yeah!

Kirk Lazarus: To be moronical.

Tugg Speedman: Exactly, to be a moron.

Kirk Lazarus: An imbecile.

Tugg Speedman: Yeah!

Kirk Lazarus: Like the dumbest mother fucker that ever lived.

Tugg Speedman: [pause] When I was playing the character.

Tugg Speedman: This is insane. Are you really going to abandon this movie? We're supposed to be a unit!

Kirk Lazarus: Suck my unit.

Kirk Lazarus: Same thing happened to me when I played Neil Armstrong in Moonshot. They found me in an alley in Burbank trying to re-enter the earth's atmosphere in an old refrigerator box.

Alpa Chino: No, I always wanted to. I guess I just never had the courage to ask. It's complicated.

Kirk Lazarus: Nah! It's simple as pie man, you plant your feet on the ground, you look her square in the eyes you say "Hey! baby, you and me's goin' on a date, that's in the story"... What's her name?

Alpa Chino: ...Lance

Kirk Lazarus: You say 'Listen here, Lance'... Lance? What the fuck did I just hear? Lance?

Kevin Sandusky: Did you just say Lance?

Alpa Chino: No! I said Nance. That's what I said

Kevin Sandusky: It sounded a lot like Lance.

Alpa Chino: Dammit, I'm Alpa Chino! 'I Love Tha Pussy', aight? Lay yo ass back down and look at the stars.

Kirk Lazarus: When you wrote 'I Love Tha Pussy', was you thinking about danglin your dice on Lance's forehead?

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Wow. 8 Oscars, 400 million dollars at the box office, and you saved Tugg Speedman's career.

Les Grossman: I couldn't have done it without you.

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Really?

Les Grossman: No, dickhead. Of course I could. A nutless monkey could do your job. Now, go get drunk and take credit at all the parties.

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: I wouldn't do that.

Les Grossman: Ah... joking.

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Ah, there he is! Funny. You're a funny guy.

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: We've been handed an incredible opportunity here, Peck.

Les Grossman: The universe... is talking to us right now. You just gotta listen.

Les Grossman: Big dick, baby!

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Yep.

Les Grossman: [turns off the music] Or... you can grow a conscience in the next five minutes and see where that takes you.

Rick Peck: Let me get this straight. You want me to let my client of 15 years, one of my best friends, die in the jungle alone, for some money and a G5?

Les Grossman: Yes.

Rick Peck: [pause] A G5 airplane?

Les Grossman: [whispering] Yes... and lots of money... playaaaa!

Les Grossman: First, take a big step back... and literally, FUCK YOUR OWN FACE! I don't know what kind of pan-pacific bullshit power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia Jack is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again! Otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down in a Godly fucking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the fucking United Nations and get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you. I'm talking about a scorched earth, motherfucker! I will massacre you! I WILL FUCK YOU UP!

You got Tom Hanks, Forrest Gump - slow yes, retarded maybe, but he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping pong competition, that ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, Being There - infatile yes, retarded no. You went full retard, man... Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, I Am Sam - went full retard, went home empty handed.

Kevin Sandusky: Now, if you recall that whole hullabaloo where Hollywood was split into schisms, some studios backing Blu-ray disc, others backing HD DVD. People thought it would come down to pixel rate or refresh rate, and they're pretty much the same. What it came down to was a combination between gamers and porn. Now, whichever format porno backs is usually the one that becomes the uh most successful. But, you know, Sony, every PlayStation 3 has a Blu-ray in it.

Kirk Lazarus: You talkin' to me this whole time?

Kevin Sandusky: I was talking to whoever was listening.

Cody: Dude, dude, what the hell is going on here? Where are we?

Four Leaf Tayback: I have no idea, I've never been outside the states.

Cody: Wait what? Are you fucking kidding me? Did you make this whole goddamn thing up? Dude you weren't even in the fucking service?

Four Leaf Tayback: Yes! Of course! Coast Guard!

Cody: Coast Guard.

Four Leaf Tayback: Sanitation Department.

Cody: Oh my god! You're a fucking garbage man! Dammit! F.L. Tayback lies to me and the whole U.S. of A.!

Four Leaf Tayback: I wrote the book as a tribute! I'm a patriot!

Cody: Yeah, you're the Milli Vanilli of patriots, okay? You lied about fighting in the Vietnam War. It's like - it's like punching the American Flag in the face goddammit! God, to think I believed you!

Four Leaf Tayback: Writers lie all the time!

Alpa Chino: And why am I in this movie? Maybe I just knew I had to represent, because they had one good part in it for a black man and they gave it to Crocodile Dundee.

Kirk Lazarus: Pump your brakes, kid. That man is a national treasure.

Alpa Chino: I just wanted to throw another shrimp on your Barbie.

Kirk Lazarus: That shit ain't funny.

Kevin Sandusky: Hey, fellas! It's hot! We're tired! It stinks!

Alpa Chino: I'm just fucking with you, Kangaroo Jack! I'm sorry a dingo ate your baby.

[opening line]

Four Leaf Tayback: In the Winter of 1969, an elite force of the US Army was sent on a top secret assignment in Southeast Vietnam. The objective: rescue Sgt. Four Leaf Tayback from a heavily guarded NVA Prison Camp. The mission was considered to be near-suicide. Of the ten men sent, four returned. Of those four, three wrote books about what happened. Of those three, two were published. And of those two, only one got a movie deal. This is the story of the men who attempted to make that movie.

Les Grossman: And we'll weep for him... in the press, set up a scholarship in his name, eventually - and I'm talkin' way, way down the road - we file an insurance claim.

Studio Executive Rob Slolom: Preferably before the end of the fiscal year. Actually, the claim alone would net us more than the movie would lose.
