Fritz Fassbender edit

  • I've hated you from the first moment I married you!
  • You are a monster and a monster, in that order.
  • Silence when you're shouting at me!
  • You'll like this group analysis, it's a real freak show. If it gets dull, we sing songs.
  • My wife, the creature that ate Europe, is here.

Michael James edit

  • Marriage? That's for life! It's like cement!
  • Look, I know you'll think this is crazy, but, er, when the light hits me from a certain direction, I'm... handsome.
  • I'll be back tomorrow. If I'm not back tomorrow, send for the police. If they're not back tomorrow, send my clothes.

Victor Skapopulis edit

  • We played strip chess. She had me down to my shorts and I fainted from tension.
  • I just burnt my finger! I'm going to go in the bathroom and scream. I'll be out in a minute.

Dialogue edit

Fritz Fassbender: You're grotesque!
Anna Fassbender: Lascivious adulterer!
Fritz Fassbender: Don't you dare call me that again until I have looked it up! [looks in dictionary] "Lascivious adulterer... a man who is a lascivious adulterer"? What kind of book is this?

Anna Fassbender: Is she prettier than me?
Fritz Fassbender: Is she prettier than you? I'm prettier than you!

Michael: Did you get a job?
Victor: Yes, I got something at the strip-tease. I help the girls dress and undress.
Michael: Nice job.
Victor: Twenty francs a week.
Michael: Not very much.
Victor: It's all I could afford.

Liz Bien: You're right. I must face my problems. I can't go through life being a semi-virgin.
Michael James: What, in the name of all that is gracious, is a semi-virgin?
Liz Bien: Here, I'm a virgin. In America, I'm not.
Michael James: What do they do? Stamp it on your passport?

Fritz Fassbender: My father, the most beloved gynecologist in Vienna, before they took him away on a morals charge for indecent exposure at the State Opera House, said, and I quote: "Please do not take me away, I will not do it again."
Victor Skakapopulis: Brilliant quote.
Fritz Fassbender: He was a brilliant pervert.

Michael James: Could you tell me about your typical clientele?
Etienne: My typical clientele?
Michael James: Typical.
Etienne: All the people who are here now are typical clientele.
Michael James: Really?
Etienne: There is a man cheating on his wife in room Lola Montez. There is a woman cheating on her two husbands in Carlotta. Two lovers of indeterminate sex in Reine Margot. And two men cheating in Don Juan.
Michael James: Yes. Well, one might say the joint is jumping.

Fritz Fassbender: I, uh, decided to follow you here.
Michael James: If you followed me here, how did you contrive to be here before me?
Fritz Fassbender: I followed you... very fast.
