  • QUOTES (14)

    • Arthur: Mr. Lynch, don't you see, it's the jetlag. In three hours you're gonna realize that this city sucks. Look, New York and L.A. are like antidotes for eachother. When you're sick of L.A. you go to New York for four or five years and you feel wonderful. When you're sick of New York you come to L.A. for like, a day and a half.

    • Mr Lynch: If we'd met two years ago I would've left my wife for you.
      Shrug: Hey, you're in L.A., leave her now.
      Mr Lynch: I can't, she left me a year ago.
      Jennifer: Well, if you get married again, give me a call.

    • Robbie: Problem?
      Danna: Ernie asked me to marry him.
      Robbie: Congratulations.
      Danna: Thanks. You wanna get back together?

    • Shrug: What? What are you doing?
      Elliott Gould: I'm leaving. I can't work with you.
      Shrug: You can't leave now. I haven't even reached maturity yet.
      Elliott Gould: That's sad, Shrug.

    • Arthur: So you think I should just sell out?
      Jennifer: Of course you should sell out. Why else would you come to L.A.?

    • Elliott Gould: (going to the toilet) Does anybody else have to urinate?

    • Arthur: (reading his book) The Natives. Chapter two. For as many americans have trouble commiting to a relationship, a Los Angeles native can't even commit to lunch.

    • Danna: I like Ernie.
      Robbie: So tip him 20 dollars, don't jam your tongue down his throat.

    • Mr Lynch: God, I hate Los Angeles!
      Shrug: Yeah, but you're gonna love L.A.

    • Jennifer: Did somebody call a cab?
      Arthur: Oh my God! That's my publisher. Ummm, OK, I need you two to take him out while I work on the book.
      Shrug: You want us to kill him?
      Arthur: No, just keep him occupied.
      Jennifer: For how long?
      Arthur: I don't know, 4-5 hours.
      Jennifer: Let's just kill him.

    • Robbie: You know what? I'm not upset by this.
      Arthur: Why not?
      Robbie: Look, it's not like Danna moved unward and upward to someone better than me.
      Arthur: No, she's moved offward and downward to somebody worse than anybody.

    • Robbie: Hot and heavy?
      Arthur: Hot and heavy.
      Robbie: Ernie?
      Arthur: Ernie.
      Robbie: Danna?
      Arthur: Danna.
      Robbie: Ernie and Danna?
      Arthur: Ernie and Danna.
      Robbie: Are you sure it wasn't a hostage situation?

    • Arthur: (to Danna & Arthur) What's the meaning of this?
      Ernie: We're an item.
      Arthur: No, really, Danna, is this a hostage situation?
