  • Quotes

    • Cockroach: Why do I need math? When I get older, I'm gonna inherit my dad's scrap-iron business.
      Cliff: You need math because you're gonna have to be able to count the pieces of metal as they come off the line.
      Cockroach: We have a foreman who does that.
      Cliff: Okay, you need math so you can count the money.
      Cockroach: We have an accountant who does that.
      Cliff: Then you're gonna be broke!
      Cockroach: No way!
      Cliff: If the foreman can count and the accountant can count and you can't, you're gonna be broke!
