    • QUOTES (8)

      • Elliot: But you know how I feel. You are an overweighted, overpaid showboat. Just seeing you here and I start hyperventilating.

      • Walter Tyson: Among those who contend to know me, Mr. Banacek, I am considered stubborn, irascible, senile, ruthless. But I am nothing so complex. Yes, that's fine. What I am is what I precisely started out to be. Something I've labored toward all my life. Tyrant. And now I'm at the point where I'm starting to enjoy it. And one of the most enjoyable things is that I can have my own way about anything.
        Banacek: I know the feeling.

      • Jill: Why is it so important that you know?
        Banacek: Well, you're a lovely woman. Now, what man wants a lovely woman to hate him?
        Jill: Good day.
        Banacek: Not so far.

      • Banacek: I know this might sound like anti-intellectualism, but could we skip the last 400 years and get to the last owner, Walter Tyson.

      • Jay: Listen, if you think that's funny, just--just listen to this. Did you hear the one about the Polish Olympic star who won a gold medal? He was so proud, he had it bronzed.

      • Jay: Well, it just sounds funny when you say the guy was a Polish Olympic star.
        Banacek: That's strange. I get most of my laughs telling Sicilian jokes.
        Jay: What Sicilian jokes?

      • Walter Tyson: I'm here today against the better judgment of my doctors. However, I'm also alive today against the better judgment of my doctors.

      • Banacek: There is an old Polish proverb that says... "just because a dress is red satin doesn't mean it comes off easily."
