Beverly: Carol.
Carol: I'm Sorry.

Carol: So what are you doing with a dog?
Melvin: Suckered in. Set up. Pushed around.
Carol: You're not worried someone might take it?

Melvin: [answering the door] Is he dead yet?
Nora: No! I was wondering, would there be any way that you would be willing to walk his dog for him.
Melvin: Absolutely.

Melvin: I'm trying to keep emotion out of this. Even though this is an important issue to me, and I have very strong feelings on the subject.
Carol: What subject?! That I wasn't there to take crap from you and bring you eggs? Do you have any control over how creepy you allow yourself to get?
Melvin: Yes I do, as a matter of fact. And to prove it, I have not gotten personal and you have. Why aren't you at work? You sick? You don't look sick, just tired and bitter.

Simon: I love you.
Melvin: I tell ya, buddy, I'd be the luckiest man alive if that did it for me.

Zoe: How do you write women so well?
Melvin: I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.

[To Melvin] Come on in, and try not to ruin everything by being you.

As long as you keep your work zipped up around me, I don't give a rat-crap when or where you shove your show. Are we done being neighbors for now?

Carol the waitress, meet Simon the fag.

Do you miss the tough guy? [imitating Melvin] Well here I am, sweetheart! C'mere ya little piss-ant mop!

Have you ever let a romantic moment make you do something that you knew was stupid?

How can you diagnose someone as having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and then act as if I had some kind of choice about barging in here?

I like Simon! And I like him enough to batter you unrecognizable if you verbally abuse him, or so much as touch that dog again. In the meantime, I'm gonna try to think of some way you can make it up to him. I hate doin' this! I'm an art dealer! Have a nice day.
