ChongEdit

  • Sometimes it's not even the drugs that'll kill you, man. What really kills you is looking for drugs.
  • [to Cheech] Hey, look... dude laid some peyote on me, man!
  • [on several cups of coffee, driving] It was Rock 'n Roll that killed Elvis, man!

DialogueEdit

[debating whether they are lost or not while climbing a hill]
Prince Habib: I say we are lost.
Mr. Slyman: We are not lost. We are Arabs. Lost is when you don't know where you are going.
Prince Habib: Well, that is the point, where are we going?
Mr. Slyman: We are going uphill.
Prince Habib: Well, at least when we get to the top, we will know exactly where we are.
[the two are now at the top, looking around them, but only see more hills]
Mr. Slyman: You are right. Now I know exactly where we are.
Prince Habib: You do?
Mr. Slyman: Yes. We are in the middle of fucking nowhere! Where is the road? Ah, those two guys!
Prince Habib: Yes, it was those two guys. They have stolen the road too!
Mr. Slyman: Now I am sure of it.
Prince Habib: You are sure of what?
Mr. Slyman: That our mother messed around with a goat herder.
Prince Habib: Nooo!

Mr. Slyman: They've stolen our money?
Prince Habib: And part of the car too.
