Nick Nolte: Lionel Dobie (segment "Life Lessons")



  • Paulette : [Seeing a patrol car with two policemen in it]  Kiss the driver on the mouth. Then we'll talk.

    Lionel Dobie : [Disbelieving the request and laughing nervously]  What?

    Paulette : Come on, and show me how much you love me.

    Lionel Dobie : [Shaken and laughing nervously. After a pause]  What if I do? Huh?

    Paulette : Then I'll know your love is true, and if you don't, your name is King Bullshit, and I pack.

  • Paulette : I don't have to sleep with you anymore?

    Lionel Dobie : I'm your ally against horse dung and fraud. That's as far as it goes from now on.

  • Lionel Dobie : You don't know how deep I go, or how down I get! I was married four times before you were born!

  • Lionel Dobie : [When Paulette sees Lionel appearing unexpectedly in Paulette's bedroom]  I just wanted to kiss your foot. Sorry, nothing personal.

  • Lionel Dobie : It's art. You give it up, you were never an artist in the first place.

  • Lionel Dobie : I have to pick up my assistant at the airport. I don't know why she can't take a cab like everybody else.
