Max: Do you know who I am?
Leo: You are Max Bialystock, King of BROADWAY!

Max: I was a protege of the great Boris Tomashevsky. He taught me everything I know. I'll never forget, he turned to me on his death bed and said: "Maxella, alle menschen muss zu machen, jeden tug a gentzen kachen!"
Nun: What does that mean?
Max: Who knows, I don't speak Yiddish. Strangely enough, neither did he. But in my heart, I knew what he was saying. He was saying when you're down and out and everybody thinks you're finished, that's the time to stand up on your two feet and shout: "Who do you have to **** to get a break in this stinking town?"

Max: Listen Roger, did you get a chance yet to read "Springtime for Hitler?"

Max: Yeah, how 'bout that? Then you'll do it?
Roger De Bris: Do it? Of course not.
