    • QUOTES (4)

      • R.R. Benson: I don't like to see the faces of people I've cheated. It's bad for the digestion. (to Mark) Here. It's a bulletproof vest for you.

        Mark: There's a hole in it!

        R.R. Benson: You wouldn't want to wear one that hasn't been tested first, would you?

      • Mark: You're meeting a Congressman in an underground parking lot?

        R.R. Benson: I never make bribes in public. That's tacky.

        (at the meeting)

        Congressman: How did I ever let you put your hooks in me to begin with?

        R.R. Benson: That's beside the issue. The issue is that the hooks are in; I can use you or I can destroy you.

        Congressman: Maybe I should let you destroy me. Might be worth it not to feel like scum.

      • Jonathan: (on Benson Apartments) NOBODY wants to live like this. Look at these people--they can't use the toilets here because the plumbing doesn't work. They can't drink the water because there's rust in the pipes!

        Benson: (repeated line) It's NOT MY PROBLEM.

        Mark: It never is, is it? Not until the kids who live in places like this grow up, learn how to fight and then mug you. After that, you run screaming to the police that it IS your problem, and the cops have to clean up the seeds YOU planted 20 years ago!

      • R.R Benson: "God gave you lips use em."
