  • Quotes

    • Mavis: Are you alright, sir?
      Potter: No, I'm not alright. And you better get a good lawywer, 'cuz I'm suing your butt.
      Mavis: OK, then you can get your own ass out of the bed.

    • Jadwiga: Everything is supersized. It is not normal to have sodas in size of bathtubs.
      Nasim: Yeah but you know, it's only 39 cents extra.
      Mavis: And with the money we save we can pay for our diets. Oh yeah, we've got Atkins, we've got the Zone, and of course, there's always Dr Phil, 'cuz everyone wants to look like Phil.

    • Jadwiga: What an ass! (reffering to Potter) No seriously, look at the size of that thing.
      Nasim: It's like 5 of me, and 2 of you, Mavis.

    • Potter: Come on, is this gonna take a long time? Let's, let's go... (he snaps his fingers)
      Mavis: Nah, nah. We do not snap at the hotel. I will cut your fingers off.

    • Potter: Potter, I've got a reservation.
      Nasim: For how many? (reffering to Potter's overweightness)

    • Nasim: There are more executions in Texas than in the Middle East. I tell you, it's like, it's like the Taliban would barbecue.

    • Jadwiga: We don't have overweight people in my country, but in America, my God, you're out of control!
      Mavis: You don't have food in your country!

    • Jadwiga: I would be a good lawyer. I used to watch The Practice until they fired the cute man McDermott.

      This is an obvious allusion to the ABC drama show The Pratice and a character named Bobby Donnell, played by Dylan McDermott.
