    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Sam and Russ arguing in the woods)
        Sam: Let me pay it off. It's only 628 dollars a week per 18 years. Totally doable.
        Russ: Nonsense, man your age shouldn't be settled with debt. It's not right!
        Sam: But it is right to shoot me in the face?
        Russ: I didn't write the constitution, I just live by it.

      • Russ: Now, I want to hear you make a sound like a fox.
        Sam: I don't... don't... how does a fox sound?
        Russ: Well it's just like an ocelot, only deeper... fox sounding.

      • (Sam reacting to Russ' plan of getting shot by The Dutch)
        Sam: I don't really want to get shot in the face.
        Russ: Yeah, where do you want to be shot?
        Sam: Nowhere.
        Russ: No, hey... then you're fired! You better get use to a life of Raman, flip-flops and entertaining sailors down in tug-town (pointing at Sam's crotch).

      • Children's Club of America Singers: Sam Sullivan's inside of me... and deep inside of you!

      • Meryl: Sam! Wow what a donation! This is one little squirrel who has been saving his nuts. Who knew they were so big?

      • (Talking about how to shorten plane turn-around time)
        Sam: Cleaning the bathrooms takes fifteen minutes alone.
        Russ: Fifteen minutes! A baby octopus with a sponge could do it in five seconds.
        Sam: I'll make a note.

      • Meryl: Hey Johnny Tightpants. Heard you had lunch with the big boys.
        Sam: I did! I was right there, right behind the curtain. It was so awesome.
        Meryl: Ah, I wouldn't know about that. I'm not invited to attend those lunches.
        Sam: Oh, because you're a woman?
        Meryl: No, because I'm black.

      • Sully: It was the "barst" of times, it was the "wooorst" of times... Look at that! (He throws the book down in frustration)

        The book Sully is ineptly trying to read from is the opening sentence of A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens.
