  • Quotes

    • Hunter: To Brock Samson. Long live that blonde-haired butter-cream frosted murder cake.

    • Mr. Cardholder: La Tueur. Big game hunter. Presumed dead.
      Mr. Doe: He doesn't answer his cell phone.
      Mr. Cardholder: If you knew the guy, you'd understand.

    • Dr. Venture: What is this, the bad cop/retarded cop routine?

    • Detective Heat: Well maybe this'll refresh your memories. The stiff in your room split straight up the garanimals.
      Sgt. Collar: Yeah, good luck making that spare.
      Detective Heat: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
      Sgt. Collar: You know, because he cut him in half. A seven-ten split, like in bowling. But with a guy.
      Detective Heat: That is... downright esoteric.
      Brock: I got it right away.
      Detective Heat: (slaps Brock) You shut your mouth!

    • The Monarch: Venture! Come out come out wherever you are!
      Dr. Mrs. the Girlfriend: Oh, really?
      The Monarch: Ah, clichéd, I know. Trust me, it sounds extra creepy over the PA.

    • Dr. Venture: Hank, sit down and pretend to be sane!

    • Dr. Venture: Dean, what are you doing?
      Dean: I can't feel my left arm. How old do you have to be to have a heart attack?
      Hank: In regular years or pansy years?
      Dean: Whatever.

    • Sgt. Hatred: (about Hank) That boy is not even close to a chip off the old block. He's got guts.
      Dr. Venture: Excuse me? You don't know me. Why in my prime I saw some things that would make your head spin.
      Sgt. Hatred: Yeah, I saw a guy's head spin. Like right off his neck. Why? Because I punched him. Top that!
      Dr. Venture: Okay, okay. My father made me kill a man--kill a man--with a house key. I was ten.
      Sgt. Hatred: Ha! That's nothing. I ate a whole Labrador Retriever once. I'm serious!
