Johnny "Drama" Chase
For the scuba lesson Vince and E are instructed by Dale Dye, a decorated US Marine Corps veteran who has had many roles in TV and movies. Dye is wearing the Seal tee-shirt and Ari tells E on the phone that he will get lessons from a Navy Seal. He is credited as "Himself"...but... he plays a Navy Seal (he's not actually a trained Seal).
Dale Dye was a technical consultant on the movie Navy Seals!
Continuity goof: In the opening scene Ari is meeting Vince and E at a poolside bar. In the background, two girls in white and dark bikini's walk past, twice in the same direction about 10 seconds apart.
Whilst installing the home entertainment center, Rufus mentions that Don Johnson tried to pay him with signed Nash Bridges DVD's. Licensed Nash Bridges DVD's have not yet been released and are not scheduled for release in the foreseeable future, thus Don Johnson would be offering autographed bootleg DVD's as forms of payment.
Goof: When going to meet Mandy for dinner Vince pushes the door open when the sign on the door says pull.
Mandy mentions that she was twenty years old when Vince proposed to her five years ago. In real life, Mandy would have been around sixteen at the time.
Vince: (getting ready to get out of the car for his date) Any big news stories today, E?
Eric: What do you mean?
Vince: Mandy's really smart. She was always testing me on what was going on in the world. (silence in the car)
Turtle: I heard Pamela Anderson dropped another tit size.
Rufus: I don't love the shirt, personally.
Vince: Rufus, you don't like the shirt?
Drama: Vince, that shirt dulls the sparkle in your eyes. If I was you, I'd go with the blue Faconnable. It says, "Hello, I'm here, and I'm doing fine without you."
Dale: Now, E, you ought not to sweat this small stuff. I have revived people on seven continents and never lost--(pauses) actually, I did lose one, but that was in Antarctica and I blame it on the cold. Now get your gear and let's go.
Ari: (answering the phone) You got Gold.
Dana: Do you really answer the phone that way or did you see it was me?
Ari: Dana Gordon, the second love of my life, what can I do for you?
Dana: Look, I have a little-heads up, okay, but it's for your ears only. Swear you won't tell anyone.
Ari: Did I tell anyone that your first girl-girl sex was with someone from must-see TV in '95?
Dana: Okay, Ari, please.
Ari: Spill it. I'll swallow a cyanide tablet if they capture me.
Drama: (to Eric) Mandy Moore is Aquaman's kryptonite, bro.
Drama: If you don't want Vince's head all fucked up, make sure Mandy Moore doesn't get this movie.
Turtle: Seriously, that will drown Aquaman.
Eric: Why? What'd he do to her?
Turtle: To her? It's what she did to him.
Drama: She crushed him, bro. Crushed him.
Eric: Come on, I've never seen Vince hurt over a girl.
Drama: It got ugly, E. He was doing drive-bys to her house, late night hang-ups...
Turtle: (picks up right after Drama) ...He made a mix tape.
Eric: (talking about potential actresses for Aquagirl) Kirsten Dunst?
Drama: Nah, she already fucked a superhero.
Eric: What do you guys think of Cameron Diaz for Aquagirl?
Drama: Love her.
Turtle: Fuck that. She's got a boyfriend. Upside is you bang her, he gets pissed off. Downside is she's loyal. Who wants to make a movie with someone you have no shot at?
Vince: He's got a point.
Eric: What's behind door number two, Ari?
Ari: Door number two is a list?
Eric: What list?
Ari: James Cameron's list for Aquagirl--five of the hottest actresses on the planet, one of which, you will be stuck in a water tank with for nine months. Even if you look like our skim milk-colored friend E here, you still have a good shot of swimming in-betwen her legs.
Turtle: Yo, Rufus. Thanks for doing this so quick.
Rufus: It was nothing. I just repo'd all this s*** out of Don Johnson's house anyway. The motherf***er tried to pay me with signed "Nash Bridges" DVDs.
Vince: Sorry, Drama. Got a scuba lesson. Take Turtle.
Turtle: Come on, Vince! I want to learn to scuba. You know how buoyant I am.
Vince: Any big news stories today, E?
Eric: What do you mean?
Vince: Well, Mandy's really smart. She used to always test me on what was going on in the world.
Turtle: I heard Pamela Anderson dropped another t-t size.
Ari: Ah, SCUBA. A sport normally reserved for the rich but you get lessons from a Navy Seal because you happen to have been born next to Vince.
Eric: You make it like we're in the Far East, Drama.
Drama: Trust me, I know Malibu. One second there's no Fruit Loops, the next the mudslide is slinging a four hundred pound boulder through your dining room.
Dale: Eric, tell me now if you don't think you can handle this.
Eric: I don't think I can handle this.
Vince: When did you become such a pussy?
Eric: 4-H camp, 1985. I almost drowned.
Drama: Movie of the Week. Joe Mantegna.
Turtle: Joe Montana's acting now?
Drama: Joe Mantegna, dickhead.
Eric: Where's Vince?
Drama: I left him in aisle 9 with that MILF.
Turtle: He's probably banging her in the produce section by now.
Ari: Don't worry about it, E. When they do a Top 40 Under 4 Feet, BOOM, top of the list!
Ari: Hey, did Drama get his salad tossed or what?
Eric: Stop fantasizing, Ari.
Drama: This is kind of embarrassing but sometimes I wake up in the morning fully tented. Any advice?
Dr. Joyce Brothers: Well at your age, consider yourself lucky.
Eric: Where is Vince, anyway?
Drama: I left him on aisle 9 with that MILF.
Drama: Malibu? I booked a massage.
Vince: So cancel it. I'll have Turtle give you a rubdown.
