    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Tom: (voice over) So I offered Ray a publishing deal, and now, he writes for other people. And this way, he can spend more time producing the best pizza in the city. If that doesn't work out? Well, he's always got the rockstar thing to fall back on.

      • Drunk Woman: I woke up on a couch, with a blanket over me.
        Tom: Yeah, well I did do that. But you know, I couldn't really leave you in the hallway, could I?
        Drunk Woman: This is New York. A lot of people would've done less. Or more.
        Tom: (doffs his cap) I guess I'm a full-service delivery guy.
        Drunk Woman: I should order pizza more often.
        Tom: Well, we're in the book.
        Drunk Woman: (hands Tom her number) I'm not.

      • Shooter: I can handle an intruder. It's just the stockpile of firearms you got lying around here like remote controls that actually kinda worried me.
        Detective Perez: Well don't worry, they're childproof.
        Shooter: Very funny.

      • Jeff: (about choosing between Joshua Bell and Ray) It's like Sophie's Choice here, sort of. I mean, except without the kids, and the Nazis, and the life-or-death decisions... Okay, it's a really bad comparison.

      • Mike: See, this classic male defensiveness. This is why women speak ill of us.
        Tom: This isn't why women speak... They speak ill of us because we're selfish.
        Shooter: Emotionally detached.
        Jake: And all-around insensitive.
        Tom: Let's ball.
        (all resume their game)

      • Julia: What's sexier than a male violinist?
        Tom: A male pianist.

      • Tom: You know how you get to Carnegie Hall?
        Jeff: Practice.
        Tom: No, you just walk. It's right around the block.

      • Detective Perez: They're okay. Lucky, actually. Could've been worse.
        Shooter: Yeah, the guy could've punched me. And I don't have all that, uh... padding like you, Mikey.
        Mike: Oh wow, that's great, that's great. What's next, height jokes?

      • Detective Perez: You must be Mrs. Freed?
        Karen: Dr. Freed, officer.
        Detective Perez: Detective.

      • Mike: Annette's a lovely name.
        Annette: What do you know about it, granddad?

      • Tom: You know what? Ray's got too much talent to be stuck there kneading dough.
        Shooter: What, money?
        Tom: No, pizza dough.

      • [Tom and Julia both want to sign different artists]
        Jeff: We can only sign one. Now you guys, play nice.
        Tom: Of course Jeff.
        Julia: Don't worry about it, Jeff.
        [Jeff leaves room]
        Julia: Bring it.
        Tom: Oh, it's on.
