    • QUOTES (5)

      • Kelly: I didn't ask you anything yet.
        Secretary: Kelly Robinson, the only good thing about playing tennis with you is that a girl gets to wear her sneakers so she can run.

      • Kelly: Let me have your jacket.
        Scott: What?
        Kelly: Your jacket, can I have your jacket to put it on the wire?
        Scott: No, man. What for?
        Kelly: Well, I can't use mine. I have to be beautiful for the girl.
        Scott: Well, you borrowed my jacket in Hong Kong to put on the barbed wire. You owe me one.
        Kelly: Are you kidding? I had that rewoven for you. You can't even see the little holes in the thing.

      • Waiter: Ah, those are wandering mariachis. Bring good luck.
        Kelly: How far do they usually wander? Because right now they're killing the art of conversation.

      • Maude: You are as alien and unfathomable to me as somebody from another planet.
        Saunders: Mrs. Murdock, I've never really believed you're a simple Oklahoman housewife. Now I'm sure you're not.
        Maude: Allow me to tell you just who I am. I am a woman who labels you as a traitor. I can't call you my countryman 'cause you have no cause, you have no convictions, no principles.
        Saunders: Merely money.
        Maude: And you don't need money. What you do, you do because you despise everything. You're one of those superior beings for whom there are no laws, no rules, no commandments.
        Saunders: I've never been a joiner.
        Maude: In Oklahoma, when we have a diseased animals, we cut him out of the herd before he can do anymore damage.
        Saunders: Mrs. Murdock, I'm afraid you've got to leave that little chore to someone else.

      • Kelly: Hello there, Maude. Listen, I have a question for you, Maude.
        Maude: What's that?
        Kelly: Why in the world would you... why in the world would you go out with us carrying a gun?
        Maude: Why, in case I had to shoot you. I hope you don't think I trusted either one of you.
        Kelly: Yes.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Kelly: (hanging off of an electrified fence and over a guard dog) Well, here's another fine mess you've gotten me into Stanley, you fool!
        Scott: Hey, Tarz, here's an easier way.
        Kelly's reference is to the Laurel and Hardy comedy bit that Oliver Hardy almost always said near the end of their movies--usually after much mayhem has occurred. Scott is being smart-alecky by calling Kelly--hanging from a fence, sort of upside-down--Lord Greystoke's more commonly used name. Tarzan, of course, is the famous creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
