  • I'm looking for a girl with big bones.


  • OK, maybe I might help you. It's only because I'm a sucker for big-boned dolls in trouble.


  • Mambino: Big confidence from an alien - who walks like a troll, dresses like a worm, and has the voice that gives everyone a headache.
  • General Rykov: Your panty-hose are on too tight, Crassus.
  • Lord Over: Come here, child. Come closer. So, you are the Wanda.


Stacy: Wanda, the creep broke up with you over your answering machine.
Wanda: I just want to know why he broke up.
Stacy: He doesn't like you.
Wanda: Thanks, Stacy.
Stacy: You should have gone blonder.

Wanda: I can change. I want to change. Just tell me what you don't like about me.
Robbie: You won't change, Wanda.
Wanda: Please, Robbie. Give me a chance. What don't you like about me and I'll change.
Robbie: Alright! Your glasses make you look stupid. Your hair's ugly. You dress like a nerd. You walk like a clod. And your voice gives me a headache. Is that enough?

Wanda: Will I ever see you again?
Charmin' : You never know, Wanda. Crazy. Another time, another place. Now go on. Get out of here. Another time, another place.
