Vince: What, you think I'm a dick?
Jon: Uh, no. But I do know that occasionally you have a tendency to act in a phallic fashion.

Jon: You don't like my work?
Vince: I like it like I like a shot of whiskey first thing in the morning: it's good for about 10 minutes and then I want my coffee.

Jon: She's probably scared.
Vince: Oh God, of what? I never threatened her!
Jon: ...You sometimes present a threatening appearance.
Vince: Dude... we have been going together for three years.
Jon: So what?
Vince: So... I mean, you'd think she would be used to it by now.

Vince: She thinks I have violent tendencies.
Jon: Oh, boy.
Vince: Jon, I never touched her.
Jon: I never said you did.
Vince: Well, she thinks I have, uh, "unresolved issues, which occasionally manifest themselves in potentially violent ways."
Jon: [... ] Women these days have no reason to hang around potentially violent guys. It's not an attractive quality anymore. Too many guys out there with "resolved" violent tendencies.
Vince: Oh, so I'm out of fashion?

Jon: Since when are you all high and mighty?
Vince: I'm not high and mighty. I'm too high to be high and mighty.

Jon: Thanks, Vince.
Vince: What?
Jon: Thanks.
Vince: For what?
Jon: For all your honesty.

Vince: Do you have any idea how much those drugs cost?
Amy: There'll be other drugs, Vincent.
Vince: I know... but, I really liked those ones.
