    • QUOTES (12)

      • Mary: Well, it's Jeff's book signing party.
        Dick: But you don't understand, I beat him in racquetball!
        Mary: I can't miss it, he dedicated his novel to me.
        Dick: Oh no, you can't miss that.
        Mary: Why don't you come?
        Dick: Come? Oh no, I've got things to do. I have to take my Black Forest ham, my wheel of Brie, my Cabernet Sauvignon, my Limoges trivets, throw them in the front yard, and set them ablaze in a big bonfire as a tribute to Jeff's book signing!

      • Sally: (Reading a magazine) Okay, here's a topic. You can discuss Biology.
        Dick: Why?
        Sally: According to a recent survey, seven out of ten women have multiple organisms.

      • Dick: (Translating the Turkish on Mary's thimble) 'May these always point me toward the spoils of war.' This isn't a thimble, it's Turkish nipple armor. It's very valuable.
        Mary: Especially if you have a pair.

      • Sally: Permission to speak freely sir?
        Dick: Yeah, sure.
        Sally: You and I have flown a lot of missions together. If you ask me to put out the sun with my bare hands, I would, no questions asked. But if you ever send me out in broad daylight to pick up a bunch of women's magazines again, I will kill you.

      • Sally: Why are you looking at me?
        Dick: Because you're the woman.

        Sally: Yeah for two whole months, but I haven't even figured out how to take off my bra yet.

      • Jeff: I have time to kill, I'd love to play.
        Dick: I have some time to play, I'd love to kill.

      • (Mary and Dick hug, after Dick pressured her to)
        Dick: There. That was all I was asking for... I want to have your baby!

      • (Jeff comes out for his book signing)
        Dick: The man of the hour!
        Mary: Oh God!
        Dick: (To Jeff) You think your pretty clever, dont you? I happen to know that every word in your book was published years ago! Perhaps you've read the dictionary!

      • (After Dick wins racket ball against Jeff)
        Jeff: Congratulations.
        Dick: It was so easy! You offered me no challenge at all!
        Jeff: Yeah. It was kind-of off my game.
        Dick: Off your game? You played like a little girl!

      • (Sally walks into a men's changing room)
        A man: Hey! It says 'Men' on the door!
        Sally: You made the cut?

      • Sally: Dick, I can't take this housework anymore. I was put on this mission because of my military skills. These hands are lethal weapons. But now they're all red and dry from harsh detergents.

      • Opening Narration: They say Earth started with just 2 humans. Now there are 5 billion. Someone needs to turn a hose on them.
