A blockbuster. But quality. No mutants or maniacs. This one's gonna be my "Driving Miss Daisy".


Chili: You read Harry's new one? He says it's the best thing he's ever read.
Karen: He must mean after "Slime Creature 3".

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.

Chili: What kinda food they serve at this Ivy place anyway?
Karen: Continental, but it doesn't matter. Martin won't order from the menu.
Chili: Why not?
Karen: Because a movie star can never order straight from the menu. They have to think of something they have to have that isn't on the menu.

That's half a movie, with holes in it. Maybe forty minutes of screen time. You don't even have a girl, a female lead, and on top of that, there's no one to sympathize with, you don't have a good guy.

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.

Chili: You have a piece of a movie, that's all. You don't have a piece of Harry. He told you we're doing another movie first. And that's the way it's gonna be.
Ronnie: Excuse me. But who the **** are you?
Chili: I'm the one telling you how it is. That's not too hard to figure out, is it?

Escobar: Now why would you do that? Put the money in a locker?
Bo Catlett: Because there were a zillion DEA guys hanging around the terminal.
Escobar: A zillion, huh? That's a lot.

I spent all day crawling out of a grave. The costumer kept bitching 'cause I was ripping my nylons...

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.

Doris: What a spectacular view.
Harry: Yeah, lovely. Last night I watched two guys carjack a Camero down on the corner of Argyle there.

Chili: You don't need that. You want to sit down and talk, it's fine with me. Get this straightened out. How'd you get in here?
Ray "Bones": I told them I was you. I acted stupid and they believed me.

Chili: So you're thinking what if I was to put you next to my dry cleaner. Ask him if he wants to invest his money in a movie.
Harry: That, or I'm thinking what if some tragic accident were to befall the widow Saffrin...
Chili: I'm not gonna pop her, Harry.
Harry: Just a thought.

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.
