During the movie screening we see that Paulie Walnuts' ring tone is the Simon and Garfunkel song, "Cecilia."
Warren: (detailing his murder of his wife) I killed her aunt, too. I didn't know she was there—and the mailman. At that point, I had to fully commit.
Ginny Sack: You know, it's that kind of attitude that probably brought this on in the first place.
Johnny Sack: You gonna start with that again? What about all these six-year-olds with leukemia? What's that from? All their negative thinking?
Warren: Why are you in here?
Johnny Sack: I've been accused of being part of a certain Italian-American sub-culture.
Christopher: Fuck Ben Kingsley. Daniel Baldwin took him to fucking acting school!
Tony: How was Florida?
Phil: Hot and sticky, like my balls.
Christopher: Isaac Newtown invented gravity because some asshole hit him with an apple.
Phil: Who knows who is Leonardo Da Vinci? Matty.
Matty: Yeah, he wrote The Da Vinci Code.
Patty: Another man wrote that, but it's a hideous, sacrilegious book!
Tony: That's the last time I'm goin' down for the paper! You tell that fuckin' Polack to get here early and bring the paper with her, or she can go clean somebody else's fuckin' toilets!
