Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Doreau: Hammer, I cannot believe what you're saying. Incarcerate potential criminals at birth? What are you going to do, throw them in a baby prison?
      Hammer: If they resist arrest.

    • Hammer: I'll tell you what, I'll prove my point here. I'll show you that the Sledge Hammer "scum begets scum" theory is scientific fact.
      Doreau: Hammer, that's absolutely unnecessary.
      Hammer: So is saying that.

    • Doreau: Hammer, you're not going to believe this. A man was just booked for breaking into the Wentworth mansion.
      Hammer: So what?
      Doreau: Well, I thought this would be of particular interest to you.
      Hammer: Why, did someone get killed?
      Doreau: No.
      Hammer: Well, then don't tease me, Doreau.

    • Hammer: Well, if you're supposed to be my brother, how come my parents never talk about you?
      Trunk: Probably in fear of his safety, Hammer.

    • Myles: Mother and Father gave me up at birth. They had what is known as... a shotgun wedding.
      Hammer: Ooh, a shotgun wedding. Boy, that sounds romantic.

    • Hammer: I've never lived with another human being in my entire life.
      Doreau: You were married.
      Hammer: That's what I mean.

    • Myles: We must have something in common. Do you like chess?
      Hammer: No. I prefer games of true mental agility and stamina. Like sculling.
      Myles: Okay, you like canoeing. Great.
      Hammer: No. Bashing skulls.

    • Doreau: You know, it's so odd. Two brothers, same genes. One of them goes so wrong.
      Myles: Well, I guess I'm just a victim of circumstances.
      Doreau: I was referring to Sledge.

    • Doreau: Captain, Myles really isn't Hammer's brother. It was all a ruse. He's really an unemployed thespian.
      Hammer: Yeah, and he's an actor too.

    • Trunk: I wonder where he got all this ammunition.
      Hammer: He must have picked the lock on my hope chest.

    • Hammer: By the way, where are the Wentworths?
      Mayjoy: Only the maid was home. The Wentworths are at a Republican caucus meeting.
      Hammer: Where?
      Mayjoy: At the Liar's Club.

    • Hammer: You know what burns me up the worst, brother dearest?
      Myles: That I borrowed your suit?
      Hammer: Well, that too. But worse than that, you tried to play on my emotions. What few I have.
