I know I'm better than what I've been doing the last ten years, walking around in a tank top and ****-me pumps, waiting till it's time to scream.

I mean I could see myself in movies Robert De Niro had been in. Or I could maybe do an Al Pacino movie, play a hard-on. But I couldn't see myself in ones, like say the one where the three guys get stuck with a baby. They don't know how to take care of it and you see these big grown-up assholes acting cute...

I produce feature motion pictures, no TV. You mentioned Grotesque? That happened to be Grotesque Part Two that Karen Flores was in. She starred in all three of my "Slime Creatures" releases you might have seen.

And why do we remember things in movies? Because we can see them. So... keep this ****in' camera down here on the ground and shoot this scene, so we can see what the **** is goin' on, before I get someone over sixteen to ****in' shoot it for you!

When I came upstairs, you stayed to finish your drink. I told you to turn off the TV when you were through. Come to think of it, I also told you you could sleep in the maid's room.

Yeah, well Martin is known for his flipping. He flips over a script, and when the time comes to make a deal, he flips out.

You know, Welles didn't even wanna do that one. Some studio made him do it. He owed 'em one and all his own movies lost money. But, hey, sometimes that's when you do your best work, you got a gun to your head...
