  • Quotes

    • Murray: I really appreciate what you're doing, Felix.
      Oscar: What's he doing that you appreciate, Murray?
      Murray: He's helping me pick out my vacation.
      Oscar: You want my appreciation? Take him with you.

    • Oscar: For eight years, we never made it through one vacation. We fought in front of the grizzlies in Yellowstone Park. We fought in front of Goofy at Disneyland. We had such a fight in the Grand Canyon, if you go there today, you can still hear the echoes!

    • Felix: We've got to get them on this vacation, because if they could be around us for a while, they would be inspired by our marriage. Their marriage of straw would turn into a marriage of gold. We could be Mr. & Mrs. Rumplestiltskin.

    • Felix: Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I believe in your marriage. Call me silly, call me nutsy...
      Oscar: You're silly.
      Blanche: You're nutsy.

    • Oscar: Well, add to the list. We fought over an ocean, two new countries and an unknown lagoon.
      Blanche: Those skies sure weren't friendly tonight.

    • Felix: Who can fish with a naked woman onboard?
      Oscar: A naked woman?
      Gloria: (showing bikini) Blanche, is this naked?
      Blanche: Of course not, darling.
      Felix: Oh, don't encourage her! All I can tell you is she made a 90 year-old Portuguese fisherman bait his pinky.

    • Oscar: He's driving me crazy.
      Blanche: I know, I know. I've had better days myself.
      Oscar: I had a better time on Guadalcanal!

    • Felix: Tell me the truth, Oscar. What kind of guy do you think I am?
      Oscar: You want the truth?
      Felix: Give it to me straight. I can take it.
      Oscar: Well, I think you're a nut and a lunatic and you drive everybody crazy.
      Felix: How could you say a thing like that???

    • Felix: Ramon, why don't you sit down?
      Ramon: Me?
      Felix: 'Course! I don't believe in any caste system. This is a democracy, isn't it?
      Ramon: No, it isn't. It's a military dictatorship.
