Sherry: I'm like your mistress, except you're not even married.
Penny: So, what the fuck do you want, Donnie?


Rita: Daddy, you're not supposed to be smoking.
Winston: Oh, no, no. This is just some assorted herbs, some cheeba.
Don Johnston: Let me see that
[takes a drag of cigarette]
Don Johnston: Yep, it's just cannabis sativa.

Don Johnston: Wanna get a drink?
Carmen: No, I don't drink.

Sun Green: So, what's your name?
Don Johnston: Don Johnston.
Sun Green: Really? Don Johnson?
Don Johnston': No, not Johnson. Johnston, with "t".

Don Johnston: Did I give you that necklace?
Dora: No.
Don Johnston: I should have.

The Kid: So, as just a guy who gave another guy a sandwich, you have any philosophical tips or anything, for a guy on a-kind of- road trip?
Don Johnston: You asking me?
The Kid: Yeah.
Don Johnston: Well, the past is gone, I know that. The future isn't here yet, whatever it's going to be. So, all there is, is this. The present. That's it.

[after he gets punched]
Sun Green: Are you OK?
Don Johnston: It was just a minor misunderstanding.

The Kid: What happened to your eye?
Don Johnston: I, uh .., I ran into somebody. Somebody's fist.

Don Johnston: Hold on a second. Wait. I know you think that I'm your father, don't you?
The Kid: What?
Don Johnston: Just tell me. You can talk to me, chief.
The Kid: Man, you're fucked up!
Don Johnston: Wait a second. Wait a second. Wait!
