  • [after a harrowing cab ride] 

    Sheldon : Did we hit the little boy on Sixth Avenue?

    Vince Ricardo : No, we missed him by a good foot and a half.

  • Vince Ricardo : You know, I'm such a great driver, it's incomprehensible that they took my license away.

  • Vince Ricardo : Sometimes I'm so smart I scare myself.

  • Tommy : Dad and his mysterious phone calls.

    Vince Ricardo : What the hell do you mean by that?

    Tommy : Nothing. You're just always making these weird calls in back rooms and pay booths...

    Vince Ricardo : You little snot-nose! Those phone calls put you through college!

  • Vince Ricardo : I was in the jungle - the bush we called it - for approximately nine months...

    Sheldon : Nine months! That must have really been something!

  • [On working for the CIA]

  • Vince Ricardo : Just go with the flow, Shel, just go with the flow.

    Sheldon : What flow? There isn't any flow.

  • Vince Ricardo : What do you think will happen when they run off this dough... and there's trillions of extra dollars, francs, and marks floating around? You've got a collapse of confidence in the currency. People are gonna panic. There's gonna be gold riots, atonal music... political chaos, mass suicide. Right? It's Germany before Hitler. You can see that. Jesus, I don't know what people are gonna do... when a six-pack of Budweisers costs $1,200. That'll be awful.

  • Sheldon : Is he dead?

    Vince Ricardo : If he's alive, he's putting on a hell of an act, ain't he?

  • Vince Ricardo : Son, do you remember when we used to play ball on Nagle Avenue?

    Tommy : No dad, we talked about playing ball on Nagle Avenue, but we never did.

  • Vince Ricardo : It's cut and dried.

    Sheldon : It's not cut. and it's not dried.
