  • Quotes

    • (Mrs. Grubman starts crying)
      Christian: Mrs. Grubman? What´s wrong?
      Mrs. Grubman: Nothing. It´s just...
      Christian: Tell me.
      Mrs. Grubman: I haven´t been touched by a man like that in 12 years. Not since my Marvin died. I know I´m pathetic, bribing you for affection. Believe me, I know that. The nights are the worst, you know. That´s when I miss him the most. We used to have a little ritual, my husband and I. I´d take my makeup off in the bathroom and I´d get in bed all clean and bare. He´d lean over and look at me, and he´d say: "You´re so beautiful." Oh, God. Oh, how sad you must think I am.
      Christian: You´re beautiful, Mrs. Grubman. Unfortunately, we live in a world where only one kind of beauty is recognized anymore. But I´m telling you, tonight, the way you worked that room, the way you flirted with those rich guys, batted your eyes and walked away with a $100.000 check for a cause that needs you that was beautiful to me.
      Mrs. Grubman: Thank you.

    • Christian: Kiss my tan waxed ass, Sean!

    • Nanette Babcock: (to Grace) You with your perfect face and your tight ass and your tits that don't sag down to an elastic waistband you don't have to wear. I hate girls like you.

    • Mrs. Grubman: (to Security guard) Loosen your braids and take a look, sweetheart. Do I look like a terrorist?

    • Sean: Did she indicate that if you slept with her she'd drop the lawsuit?
      Christian: Are you actually telling me to stick my dick in the crypt keeper to make your mistake go away?

    • Liz: (to Christian) You really want to get inside a woman? Stop thinking like a dick.

    • Sean: Before we leave, you need to shave your genital region.
      Julia: Carefully.
      Matt: And the humiliations just keep on coming, don't they?

      Sean: I've got a son who tried to cut off his penis, a wife who flushed a gerbil. It's like I've moved back into Hell House.

      (Before having sex)
      Mrs. Grubman: Do you want the lights on or--
      Christian: Off.
