    • Jimmy: I once had a line of detergents with a great brand name, "Dandy Clean". Everybody trusted it, but that break dancing fad hit and my people made me change it. Y'know, to try to stay hip and everything like that, and the whole thing went bust in less than a year. Lisa: What'd you change the name to? Jimmy: Break Dancing Detergent.

    • Max: Grab my arm. Dave: What? Max: Trust me. (Dave grabs Max's arm) Take your hands off me sir! Groveling is one thing but this is too much! I said I was leaving and that's final! Goodbye!

    • Dave: Oh good, Max you're still here. Max: What do you want? Dave: Max, please don't... Jimmy: Swallow it, Dave, swallow it. Dave: Max please don't leave. Max: Am I to understand that you're begging me to stay? Dave: Yeah. Max: Are those tears in your eyes? Jimmy: Swallow, swallow. Dave: Yeah Max, it's getting a little misty here.

    • Dave: No way am I gonna do it. Jimmy: I thought you were the boss of them. Dave: I am the boss of them. Jimmy: Well, sometimes the boss of them has to swallow his pride for the good of them. Dave: Well, then why don't you go out there and beg Max to stay? Jimmy: Because I am the boss of you.

    • Max: Look, I took a shot and it failed. Now c'mon Dave help me get out of it. Dave: Get yourself out of it. Max: I can't. Dave: Just tell everyone you've changed your mind. Max: I can't. Then Beth would know I was faking it the whole time. Dave: Well, that's too bad. Max: I have my pride. Dave: No you don't. Max: Will you be a man for once and take responsibility for my actions?
