Linda Ash edit
- See, as the mainspring goes back and forth, the bishop keeps fucking her in the ass. It's a genuine antique and it keeps perfect time.
- And so there I am on the first day, on the set, and there's this guy fucking me from behind, right, and there's these two huge guys dressed like cops in my mouth at the same time and I remember thinking to myself, "I like acting. I wanna study."
- I feel like I owe you a great fuck.

- Jocasta: I hate to tell you what they call my son in Harlem.
- Chorus Leader: Don't go any further. I know what you're thinking, Lenny, and forget it!
- Lenny: I can't forget it; the thought's been put in my head.
- Chorus: Oh, cursed fate; certain thoughts are better left unthunk.
- Linda: My father's brother was supposed to be a genius. I never met him, but everybody said he was brilliant.
- Lenny: Really? What did he do?
- Linda: He was a serial rapist. He spent his whole life in jail, but if he had gone straight, he might have been very good in math.
- Cassandra: Now I see big trouble!
- Lenny: Oh for God's sakes, you're such a Cassandra!

- Lenny: Who's Rickey?
- Linda: He's, he's... he takes a percentage of my work.
- Lenny: He's a pimp right?
- Linda: No, he's like a business representative.

- Lenny: Why?
- Linda: 'Cause I'm always attracted to losers.
- Lenny: Losers. You think I'm a loser?
- Linda: Yeah, you've got no confidence, it's sweet, I like that in a man. I can't stand those johns who come in and throw down a couple of hundred and whip out a big dick and wave it all over the joint.
- Lenny: I wouldn't do that, even if I wanted to...
- Linda: You're married, aren't you?

- Chorus: Call us when you get in. We need help!
