  • I've got an idea. Why don't you sit down at your desk and write down all your complaints, and when I come back, we can have one of those long arguments you like so much.
  • What is that, some sort of Latin concept, killing the one you love?

Victor Spansky

  • There's no such thing as honor among thieves. It's a myth.
  • Don't take it personally, Alex. I don't trust the jury system, the phone company, or the Israeli government.


  • [flirting in broken English] I never seen anybody to fish in the grass before.


  • The only fish I want to see is on a plate with a piece of lemon.

Gabby: No, it's okay. I like the water. Even when we were coming over, the sea was so beautiful. I never wanted to sleep, I was happy. I was ashamed to be so happy. People were dying.

Gabby: What are you doing here?
Jason: I came to see the cats.

Victor: This is not an ocean front suite, in Marbella. Did you notice that?

Victor: There are no flowers or champagne from the management. I don't, I don't see a Swiss chocolate on my pillow.
Victor: My masseuse is not at the door.
Victor: [wheezing]
[long pause]
Victor: And I am, fucking dying, Alex!
Alex: Take it easy, Vic.

Alex: Get her to go easy on the codeine, will ya? Makes her mean.
Jason: Well, maybe if you got home on time once in a while, she could skip the chemical help.
