The "Penguin": You two are such a disappointing pair. I prayed so hard for you. It saddens and hurts me to think that the two boys I raised to believe in The Ten Commandments have returned to me as thieves, with filthy mouths and bad attitudes!

The Mystery Woman: [to Jake] You contemptible pig! I remained celibate for you. I stood at the back of a cathedral, waiting, in celibacy, for you, with three hundred friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterers in the state. To obtain the seven limousines for the wedding party, my father used up his last favor with Mad Pete Trullo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle, and for the common good, I must now kill you, and your brother.

Jake: First you trade the Cadilac for a microphone, then you lie to me about the band, and now you're gonna put me right back in the joint!
Elwood: They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from God!

Jake: God-damn it!
Elwood: Man, I haven't been pulled over in six months. I'll bet those police cops have got SCMODS.

Elwood: State County Municipal Offender Data System.

Jake: How you gonna get the band back together, Mr Hot-Rodder? Mr Motor Head? The cops got your name, your address!
