Rabbi: Let me just say... Oy.
Father Brian: Amen to your oy.

Anna: You don't understand. I have a relationship with my phone, we have a chemistry together, I can't explain it.

Jacob: God was showing off when he made you.

Indian Bartender: May those who love us, love us. And those who don't love us - may God turn their heads. And if he cannot turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles, so that we may know them by their limping.

Indian Bartender: Let me guess. Your old lady got fed up because you're out here chasing the skirt so she took these little ones and left you.
Father Brian: It's a little more complicated than that.
Indian Bartender: Sure it is. Everyone thinks his story is the one with a twist. Well let me tell you, I've heard just about everything there is to...
[Brian unzips his jacket... revealing his priest's collar]
Indian Bartender: Holy shit.
Father Brian: Exactly.

Father Brian: Sometimes we don't see certain things until we're ready to see them in a certain way.

Anna: So this is a rectory. That sounds like a dirty word. Rectory!

[Brian, a celibate priest, confesses his love for Anna, to Jake's astonishment]
Jacob: I mean, she's like your sister!
Father Brian: Thank you for adding new depth to my confusion.

Anna: I work harder than God! If he had hired me, he would have made the world by Thursday.

Rachel: Oh my God! The Iraqi defense minister just committed suicide!
Rabbi: Ooh!... Is that bad or good?

Don: [in a thick Philipino accent] How you guys doing? I'm Don. Don, rhytime with flon. You have any question?
Father Brian: Yes, Yes. Indeed, Don. We do. Is this a good machine?
Don: Yeah, it is good if you cheap bastard. No, jus... just doing comedy with you. That one is okay. But if you are serious about Kar'-oke.
Father Brian: Oh, we are!
Don: Okay, then... there is only one model for you. The AUDIO 2000. This baby got the 16-bit dual D/A converter, 3 beam checking, digital key controller, so you can change the pitch if your voice sucks. But I don't need that.
Father Brian: That's nice. How much?
Don: Price is not important.
Father Brian: No price is very important, actually.
Don: Okay, you got me; take me away. Okay, it's a little bit expensive. But let me tell you, it's worth it. When you sing to your girlfriend.
Father Brian: Uh huh.
Don: And her heart thweaaaatt-boom! Fall down on the floor, you say thank you, Don.
Father Brian: How much does it cost, exactly?
Don: [motions them over and begins to talk quietly in an American accent] Alright, here's the real deal. Um, I don't usually do this, but you guys look like cool guys, and uh, I got a little piece of ass last night, so I am feeling extra generous.
Rabbi: Oh!
Don: I'm going to let you guys have it for $1,300.
Father Brian: $1,300?
Don: Final offer.
Father Brian: Uh, excuse me, I just got a little warm.
[unzips jacket to reveal priest's collar]
Rabbi: My friend, he gets, he gets a little warm.
Don: [sees priest's collar] Oh, man! What is that? What is... get out of here with that. Is that real?
Father Brian: Oh, yeah!
