Andrew edit

  • I didn't lie. I wasn't lying, Adrian. I was not lying. Do you want to know why I lied?
  • [about Maxwell] He's a wonderful guy and a terrific doctor. Never lost a patient! Got a couple of them pregnant, but never lost one.
  • Sex alleviates tension and love causes it.
  • We can't have intercourse in the kitchen! There's a man in the next room singing The Lord's Prayer!

Dialogue edit

Maxwell: Andrew, are you all right?
Andrew: Maxwell, I think I fractured my last remaining nose.
Maxwell: You shouldn't fly. You're a mammal.
Andrew: Thank you, Maxwell. A doctor with a license is no smarter.
Maxwell: He never tires of insulting me, but when he's sick...
Andrew: Yeah? Who overcharges me?
Maxwell: But you always get well, don't you, Andrew?
Andrew: I would get well anyhow, Maxwell, even without the leeches.

Leopold: I had the privilege of escorting Ariel through the Sistine Chapel for the first time in her life and explaining to her exactly why Michelangelo's ceiling was indeed great.
Ariel: When Raphael first laid eyes on it, he fainted.
Andrew: Had he eaten?

Ariel: [about Leopold] He taught me a lot...
Andrew: Like what?
Ariel: Like how to listen to Mozart.
Andrew: With your ears, right?

Ariel: How's your marriage?
Andrew: My marriage is fine.
Ariel: Yeah?
Andrew: It's not working, but it's fine.

Maxwell: I'm a doctor and I believe in the spirit world.
Andrew: Oh, you have to, Maxwell, that's where all your patients end up.

[Andrew asks Ariel to join him in his flying machine]
Ariel: Andrew, we'll get killed!
Andrew: No, no. Don't be silly. Trust me, it's me, Andrew... Trust me anyhow.

Leopold: So, you're an inventor, eh?
Andrew: Crackpot inventor.
Adrian: Andrew's invented a wedding present for you and Ariel. Tell 'em about that.
Andrew: It's a silly apparatus that takes the bones out of fish, and if you prefer, although there's no point to it, it puts bones in fish.
