      • Ricky: You know, I've always tried to imagine what you look like. Whenever I asked Mom, she'd just show me a picture of a horse's rear end.
        Edward: Now, see the temptation here would be to insult your mother back. But I like to think that I'm, bigger than that. See, I take into account the fact that she's over 30 now. And that's 210 in dog years.

      • Kate: You want to make a donation to Toys For Tots?
        Edward: Yes. It's a very worthy charity.
        Kate: Well, yes, the note says that you want to donate a Ferrari?
        Edward: Well, it's a small car.

      • Leonard: You've got to realize what this situation means to you. It means no more yacht races in Florida.
        Edward: Oh.
        Leonard: No more weekends in Paris.
        Edward: Oh.
        Leonard: And no more servants in this house.
        Edward: Now wait just a minute. I draw the line at servants.
        Louis: Edward, servants get paid. They will not work for free.
        Edward: Mine will. They've been with me ever since I was a child. They love me. They'd never leave me.

        Edward: Gone?
        Louis: Gone.
        Edward: (laughs) That's impossible. I'm rich. I was born rich. I'm gonna die rich.
        Louis: Well, then you should've died yesterday.

        Leonard: Not unless you were born in Philadelphia.
        Ricky: Oh, Well, I took a shot. Mom's a liberal.
        Leonard: Who do you wanna see?
        Ricky: Edward Stratton III.
        Leonard: Ah, the man of the house? He's over there behind the train of the house.

      • Ricky: Can I show you something?
        Edward: Okie dokie!
        Ricky: Take a look at this, this is your bank account.
        Edward: Wow, there's nothing but zeroes. What does that mean?
        Ricky and Leonard: You're broke.
        Ricky: Now this is you're business manager's bank account.
        Edward: Hey, Lou's doing alright for himself.
        Ricky: Yeah, lately. Now we've seen your bank account and Lou's bank account. What does that tell you?
        Edward: Well, it's obvious, Lou's got a lot more money than I do.
