Connie HopperEdit

  • [to Stevie Dee] I'm a cop, and you're... not.

Gloria HennerEdit

  • [romantically] Oh, Oscar... go fuck yourself!

Stevie DeeEdit

  • I could be whatever you need. I could do anything for the woman I love. I believe in saying what you feel. You are the blood in my veins, I would walk through fire for you. I will always be available, I belong to you.


  • I'm gonna give you a little advice about life. You follow this and you won't be sorry. "Don't screw with your brains, don't think with your dick." That's from the heart.

Oscar HennerEdit

  • You pushed me through the tent? Through the tent you pushed me?


Oscar Henner: How could you do that to your husband? I'm your family!
Gloria Henner: Oh, you're quite the family man. You were cheating on your wife. You're cheating on your brother-in-law. You're probably cheating on this poor secretary underpaid and overscrewed.
Oscar Henner: I don't wanna hear this. This is ridiculous. I don't have to sit around and listen to that kind of talk.
Gloria Henner: You're a rat, Oscar. You don't belong in a family, you belong in a pack!
