Marcee Tidwell: My whole life is this family, Jerry. It doesn't work without him.


Okay, you want to talk about practical? Let's talk about my wonderful life. Do you know what most other women my age are doing right now? They are partying in clubs, trying to act stupid, trying to get a man, trying to keep a man... not me. I'm trying to RAISE a man. I've got a 24 hour a day reminder of Roger, for the rest of my life. I have had three lovers in four years, all boring, all achingly self-sufficient, all friends of yours I might add, and all of them running a distant second to a book and a warm bath. Look at me, Laurel, look at me. I'm the oldest 26 year old in the world!

Sugar: I came here to let you go.
Jerry: Pardon me?
Sugar: Came here to fire you, Jerry. It's real, Jerry. You... you should say something.
Jerry: Aw shit...the crowded restaurant... so there's no scene...
Sugar: I know. It sucks. I suck.
Jerry: You...
Sugar: You did this to yourself. You said "fewer clients." You put it all on paper. Scully was very upset. Heart attacks make some people sweeter, but not him. You did this to yourself -- although I do gotta hand it to you. For about five minutes you had everyone applauding smaller revenues.
Jerry: You... ungrateful... unctuous...
Sugar: ... dick?
Jerry: Dick.
Sugar: Give me a little credit for doing this face-to-face! What I went through knowing I was going to do this to my mentor! Can you get past yourself for a second?
Jerry: You'll lose.
Sugar: You wanted smaller.
Jerry: I'm over it. Now I want all my clients and yours too.
Sugar: Jerry --
Jerry: -- and I'll get 'em.
Sugar: You'll always be my hero, Jerry. Always always always. We're bringing other elements in, we're focusing on endorsements -- it's not about handholding anymore. We're no longer babysitters.

Ray: D'you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds?
Jerry: Did you know that Troy Aikman, in only six years, has passed for 16,303 yards?
Ray: D'you know that bees and dogs can smell fear?
Jerry: Did you know that the career record for hits is 4,256 by Pete Rose who is NOT in the Hall of Fame?
Ray: D'you know that my next door neighbor has three rabbits?
Jerry: I... I can't compete with that!

See, man, that's the difference. between us. You think we're fighting, I think we're finally talking!

Avery Bishop: Jerry, there is a "sensitivity" thing that some people have. I don't have it. I don't cry at movies. I don't gush over babies. I don't start celebrating Christmas five months early, and I don't tell a man who just screwed up both of our lives -- 'oh, poor baby.' That's me. For better or worse. But I do love you.

Avery: Don't...ever...stop...****ing...me!
Jerry: Sooner... or later... I'll have to stop.
Avery: Oh Gawd, oh yes, it's never been better. Never BETTER!! Never BETTER!!
[The two finish having sex]
Avery: Open your eyes. If you ever want me to be with another woman for you, I would do it. I'm not interested in it. There was a time, yes, it felt normal for me, but it was a phase, a college thing, like torn Levi's or law school for you... people change, but if you ever feel like being adventurous in that way, I would do it for you... You want anything from the kitchen I'm going to get some fruit --
Jerry: You know I don't think we need to do the thing where we tell each other everything!
Avery: Jerry, this is what intimacy is!

Avery Bishop (very loudly): YOU ARE JERRY MA-****ING-GUIRE!!!

Dorothy: I loved your memo, by the way.
Jerry: Thanks... actually, it was just a "Mission Statement."
Dorothy: I think in this age, optimism like that... it's a revolutionary act.
Jerry: You think so?
Dorothy: Oh yes.
Jerry: I appreciate that, because some of that stuff... you know, it was two in the morning and...
Dorothy: -- the part about "we should embrace what it is still virginal about our enthusiasm" -- "and we should all force open the tightly-clenched fist of commerce, and give a little back for the greater good.". I mean, I was inspired, and I'm an accountant.

I've listened to you all tell a thousand sob stories, and I have been very judgmental. Frankly, I think you've all been way too comfortable with your pain. I've not been fair to you. Women need to stick together, and not depend on the affections of a man to "fix" their lives. Maybe you're all correct. Men are the enemy... But I still love the enemy.

Bob Sugar: It's not show "friends". It's show business.

"Shut up. Just shut up... You had me at hello. You had me at hello." Note: ranked #52 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.

Dorothy: Look, just in case this weekend becomes next month and next month becomes... whatever... Don't make a joke of your life. Go back and read what you wrote. You're better than the rest of them, better than the Bob Sugars, and don't forget it.
Jerry: Wait a second. I know a way to s... to save on Medical and rent and... look... what if we stayed together? What if we uh... got married. If I said that, would you stay?
Dorothy: No no. Don't do that. Don't say that unless you want to say it.
Jerry: Will you marry me?

You should be dreaming about me baby! I should be on your mind constantly and that's how we will truely materialize the kwan!.

Well, don't worry! I'm not going to do what you think I'm going to do, which is FLIP OUT! But let me just say, as I ease out of the office I helped build -- sorry, but it's a fact -- that there is such a thing as manners. A way of treating people... These fish have manners! They have manners. In fact. They're coming with me! I'm starting a new company, and the fish will come with me and... you can call me sentimental. But if anybody else wants to come with me, this moment will be the ground floor of something real and fun and inspiring and true in this godforsaken business and we will do it together! Who's coming with me besides..."Flipper" here?
