  • [on the telephone with Dr. Young.] You gotta help me. I'm in love with Linda. We want to get married... thank you. There's only one problem - she needs a nine inch cock. I'm only 3 inches away from true happiness, is there anything you can do? You can? Really? "[turning to Linda Lovelace]" No problem, honey. He can cut it off as short as you want!


  • [while receiving cunnilingus] Mind if I smoke, while you're eating?

Dr. YoungEdit

  • No wonder you can't hear any bells! You don't have a tinkler!
    • The doctor is explaining that the reason that Linda does not have orgasms is that she has no clitoris; it is later discovered to be in the back of her throat.

The Closing SignEdit

  • The End. And Deep Throat to you all.


Linda: How would you like it if you had balls in your ears?
Dr. Young: [pause] I guess I could hear myself cumming!


  • Virtually every time someone watches that movie, they're watching me being raped.
  • It is a crime that movie is still showing; there was a gun to my head the entire time.
    • Linda Lovelace, interviewed in the Toronto Sun, March 20, 1981.
  • It is all very well and good for Linda Lovelace, the star of the movie, to advocate sexual freedom; but the energy she brings to her role is less awesome than discouraging. If you have to work this hard at sexual freedom, maybe it isn't worth the effort.
