  • Quotes

    • Vinnie: I feel like this is just the beginning. Today, Buchanan, tomorrow, who knows? Governor Barbarino, Senator Barbarino, Emperor Barbarino! (Sweathogs cheer) You know, Julius Caesar was an Italian.

    • (speaking of Judy and Scott)
      Gabe: I just did guarantee them a little, what you call, uh, diplomatic immunity.
      Juan: What does that mean?
      Gabe: It means their dental patterns are gonna remain unchanged.

    • Gabe: Vinnie's not the first Sweathog who ever ran.
      Woodman: No, that's right. Back in 1962, Jerry Slater was disqualified for stuffing the ballot box... with his opponent.

    • Woodman: Well, this is the moment we've all been waiting for.
      Gabe: Gee, I'm sorry to hear you're leaving, Mr. Woodman.

    • Juan: You think it's easy being a Puerto Rican Jew, huh? You think it's easy growing up in a house with nine other Puerto Rican Jews? Half my brothers were stealin' pants, the other half were alterin' them!
