    • Dick: You know what we should do right now? Run out of here, grab a couple of horses, ride bareback through the woods all night and make love in a meadow at sunrise!
      Mary: I have class in five minutes. And that's just the first of my reservations.
      Dick: Forget class! Let's live! Let's taste danger! Let's go for the gusto, consequences be damned! Let's drive fast, and eat cheese!

    • Harry: Excuse me.
      Dr. Henlin: Can I help you?
      Harry: Well, someone said there was a giant flaming jack-ass over here.
      Dr. Henlin: They put it out.

    • Dr. Henlin: (To Dick) But I don't think anybody hates me more than your friend, Doctor, um-
      Mary: Albright.
      Dr. Henlin: Yes! Probably because I turned her down.
      Mary: I need something from the bar.
      Dr. Henlin: Yes, that should solve all your problems.

    • Sally: How would you like your eyes in the bottom of a martini glass, 'cause I can do it? Dr. Henlin: (sounding delighted) Oh, the Amazon is going to manhandle me!

    • Harry: Oh, Dick, we've got cable! Seventy-two channels! And unlike primitive free television this one you get to pay for.

    Allusions (1)

    • Harry: To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream. Oooh, there's the rub. (turns an apple around, which resembles a skull) For in that sleep of death what dreams may come. When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause. Dick: What's that from? Harry: I don't know, some Mel Gibson movie. Harry quotes lines from Shakespeare's Hamlet (Act III, Scene I), part of the "To be or not to be" monologue. Mel Gibson played in the 1990 screen adaptation of this play.
