  • Quotes

    • Diane: I would like to see you in your office. I have something I want to give you.
      Sam: How about a spanking? I think I deserve it.

    • Sam: What's the good word, Norm?
      Norm: Plop, plop, fizz, fizz.
      Sam: Not the Hungry Heifer again.

    • Cliff: Come on Diane. She's your ma. She carried you for nine months.
      Diane: Eight, I was premature.
      Carla: Couldn't wait to get out and start yappin'.

    • [Diane wants money to buy a book]
      Carla: Why don't you ask that rich old lady of yours? She's got more money than me and God put together.
      Diane: No, I can't ask mummy. I'd rather die.
      Carla: I like that even better.

    • (Diane shows Sam what she bought with the money he lent her)
      Diane: It's a book... and a very valuable book. It's a first edition Hemingway.
      Sam: "The Sun Also Rises". Boy, that's real profound.
      Diane: I purchased it for $500, but I'm sure it's worth a great deal more. It's signed by Ernest Hemingway himself.
      Sam: For 500 bucks you'd think Margaux Hemingway'd come over to your house and act it out for you.

    • (the gang failed in their attempt to break the bathroom stuffing record)
      Woody: Oh, gee, I see how I miscounted. I had myself down here twice. See: "Woody" and "me".
      Norm: Well, here's to noble failure, huh?
      Cliff: Aah, Norm, I can't drink to that. There's nothin' noble about failure.
      Carla: If there was, you'd be a duke.
