Quotes

Holly: [At party] Dad, there are whores here n'stuff.

Holland March: Don't say n'stuff. Just say, Dad, there are whores here.

Holland March: Look on the bright side. Nobody got hurt.

Jackson Healy: People got hurt.

Holland March: I'm saying, I think they died quickly. So I don't think they got hurt.

Holland March: So you're telling me you made a porno where the plot is the point?

Holland March: I think I'm invincible. It's the only thing that makes sense. I don't think I can die.

Holland March: Munich.

Jackson Healy: What ?

Holland March: What are you doing?

Holly: I was giving you a rimjob.

Holland March: [horrified] Rimshot!... Rimshot.

Holland March: Got a cool ad though. I made your head small because I know you're sensitive about how big it is.

Jackson Healy: Yeah.

Holland March: Sad, isn't it ?

Holly: How much would you charge to beat up my friend Janet ?

Holland March: [impatient/annoyed] YES!

[the room is stunned as Mrs. Glenn clasps her mouth in horror]

Holland March: I mean, uh, yes I'm so sorry.

Holland March: . Answers to...

[Healy meets March in the bathroom after previously breaking his arm]

Jackson Healy: March. Jack Healy. Don't get upset. I'm not here to hurt you. I just wanna ask you a question.

[March opens the bathroom stall door and brandishes a gun]

Holland March: How stupid do you think I am? I got a license to carry, motherfucker. Ever since your little visit the other day, this little baby's gonna stay right here.

[as March gestures with his gun to his to shirt pocket, the stall door begins to close. March slams it open and drops the cigarette he had in his mouth into his pants]

Holland March: Shit! Fuck!

[March reaches down to grab the cigarette and the stall door closes again. He repeatedly slams it open with his foot. Healy is quietly amused]

Holland March: Don't move.

Jackson Healy: So, you know the old lady, right? Did you belive her?

Holland March: What about?

Jackson Healy: When she said she saw Misty alive that night, did you belive her?

Holland March: God, no. She's blind as a bat.

Jackson Healy: Uh-huh.

Holland March: She has actual coke bottles for glasses. You paint a mustache on a Volkswagen, she says, "Boy, that Omar Sharif sure runs fast."
