  • Quotes

    • Valentina: Like last night, I just wanted [Ralphie] to fuck me, just so I could get back at you, but all he wanted me to do was drip candle wax on his balls and then he went into the bathroom and jerked himself off. Now, I don't call that having sex with someone.

    • Ralphie: I like my drinks with extra olives. You should know how your regular customers like their drinks.
      Adriana: My regular customers are the ones who pay.

    • Ralphie: Fucko, where's the hose?!

    • Tony: A guy like that… he could technically not have penisary contact with her valvo?

    • Miss Giaculo: (on Green Grove) Sometimes I think this place is like high school with wheelchairs.

    • Valentina: Did you think it was funny?
      Tony: Yeah, but what I think is funny is what an eight year old thinks is funny.

    • Tony: I received regular beatings when I was a kid, but I'm not running around looking for someone to hook jumper cables up to my privates.

    • Tony: I just don't wanna be where Ralph Cifaretto has been.

    • Nucci Gualtieri: Oh! I gotta use the W.C.!
