  • Quotes (4)

    • Valerie Simpson (from TV set): Unconfirmed sources have told us that the suspects name is Raymond Alexander, age sixteen, from Compton. His hostages are two Brentwood teenagers, Douglas Howser and Vincent Delflorio. Vinnie (in frustration): Delflorio? Delflorio! I can't believe this. I even spelled it for them.

    • Valerie Simpson (from TV set): Again, the standoff here in a West Los Angeles convenience store heads into its third hour. At this time police are still withholding the names of both the gunman and his hostages. Vinnie and Raymond (exclaiming together): What? Vinnie (in disgust): Withholding our names? Raymond: Man, I don't believe this! They're messing with my air time.

    • Vinnie: So pretty nice setup, huh? You got your TV, your stereo system, your junk food and every dirty magazine a guy could wish for. Doogie: Wow... thats kinda like how we pictured heaven, huh Vin?

    • Doogie's Journal Entry: March 3, 1990... I never tought of myself as prejudiced against black people... but after last night, I think I might have to rethink what I thought.
