  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Raines: I came out here thinking I was gonna be the next Raymond Chandler. I figured, you live here, you write like him. "Dead men are heavier than broken hearts."
      Jimmy: The Big Sleep. Great book.
      Raines: You ever read it?
      Jimmy: Probably not.

    • Raines: Did Jimmy have any problems with anybody?
      Stoner lady: Last week he...
      Raines: (Waits for her to continue her statement. When she doesn't, he prompts her) Last week...?
      Stoner lady: I'm not a mind reader. What about last week?
      Jimmy: (Leans forward, munching a cookie, interrupting) Is it old age or the weed?
      Raines: Uh, old age put her on the bicycle, but weed is doing the pedalling.
      Stoner lady: I don't peddle drugs! I'm a consumer. Now let's get back to the argument with Sergei!

    • Stanley Rastow: (discussing Wally's status as a comic book grader) Graders are like freakin' priests. There's no way they'd certify a fake.
      Raines: Those comics came in these. (Pulls out the comic cases, tagged from Wally's shop)
      Rastow: Wally's selling knockoffs? That's impossible. The guy's like a Jedi level nerd. He'd never go to the dark side.
      Raines: Unless somebody forced him to.

    • Lewis: How'd it go with Samantha today?
      Raines: We had a breakthough as a matter of fact. My problem is you.
      Lewis: I ask because I care. And I want a heads up when you snap so I have time to find a place to take a clean shot from.
      Carolyn: You'll spare me right? You'll need someone to explain the insane logic behind the rampage.
      Raines: I'm writing a note.

    • Lewis: (Indicating Raines' brown sack) What'd you get for lunch?
      Raines: Shoes!
      Lewis: That smart ass attitude is exactly why you'll never get to have a Captain's ulcer.
      Raines: No, uh a very sweet doper old lady gave these to me. They belonged to her dead husband. She thought they'd fit me. You're an 11 aren't you?
      Lewis: I'm good for shoes. What I could really use though are some old dead guy pants.

    • Raines: How are you doing?
      Charlie's widow: I'm cursing God less.
      Raines: Well, don't stop comepletely. I'm sure it's a welcome change from all those people, uh, sucking up and asking for stuff.

    • Raines: (looking over the ice cream menu, reading to Jack) What are you going to get? My eye has fallen upon 'Eskimo Munch', that sounds vaguely inappropriate.

    • Raines: Is that cat breathing?
      Stoner lady: Oh, I hope not. She died years ago. I had her stuffed.
      Raines: Like Roy Rogers with Trigger. Norman Bates did that. Taxidermy. That's the highest form of flattery.

    • Raines: What is this? A locked cabinet. What's in here?
      Jimmy: Bro, if it's one of those rubber suits with a zipper for a mouth let's keep it on the down low.

    • Raines: (Finding Jimmy's bong) Sure, now the tortoise makes sense. It's the only pet that you can catch when you're stoned.

    • Geek Farm employee: Wally. This guy saw the 'Raven's Claw Death Saber' on the website. He wants to know if he comes in can he get it cheaper?
      Wally: Tell him if he comes into the store I have to charge him more because then I have to look at his big fat face.

    • Wino: (Seeing Raines sitting in his car talking to himself, approaches the car with bottle) Hey, pal. (Offers Raines a drink)
      Raines: Oh, no. No, no. Thank you. Not a, not a drunk. Just, uh, crazy. Thank you.

    • Lance: (Hands Raines the victim's wallet) There's also a photograph. I was thinking, maybe his girlfriend?
      Raines: We better find her and give her the bad news. Unless he was her stalker, in which case it's good news.

    • Raines: I came here cuz I thought I was going to be the next Raymond Chandler. I thought that you live here you write like him. Dead men are heavier than broken hearts.
      Jimmy Davis: The Big Sleep. A great book.
      The Big Sleep is a 1939 novel by Raymond Chandler. It is the first novel to feature the detective Philip Marlowe.

    • Raines: He didn't go gentle into that good night.
      Allusion to a poem by Dylan Thomas called Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. The first verse reads:
      "Do not go gentle into that good night,
      Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
      Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
