View Quote Alonzo Hawk: Who're these clowns?
Secretary: They're your new layers, Mr. Hawk. You fired the others yesterday.
Alonzo Hawk: Okay, fellas, now I want to tear down the Steinmetz firehouse. Okay?
Lawyer: Just a moment. Mr. Hawk. Do you have the necessary permit?
Alonzo Hawk: Of course I don't have a permit! I don't even own the land yet!
Secretary: Sorry, Mr. Hawk. Such an action would only jeopardize your entire legal standing of your new building. We can't permit...
Alonzo Hawk: Will you get outta here? I didn't hire you to tell me what I can't do, I hired you to tell me how I could do it! GOOOOOO!

<She kisses her hand.>

View Quote Loostgarten: Loostgarten speaking.
Willoughby Whitford: [imitating Hawk's voice over the telephone] This is Alonzo Hawk.
Loostgarten: Right, Mr. Hawk.
Willoughby Whitford: Loostgarten, there's been a slight change in plan. I don't want you to knock down the firehouse tonight. Instead I want you to knock down 343 Oleander Heights. You got that, 343 Oleander Heights?
Loostgarten: Right.
Willoughby Whitford: WRITE IT DOWN! [Loostgarten starts scribbling the address down on a notepad.] I don't want you to be blackballed in the wrecking ball business. If you know what I mean.
[He laughs and hangs up.]
Grandma Steinmetz: Oh, you're wonderful!
View Quote Mrs. Steinmetz: Don't you get fresh with me, young man!
Guard 2: Watch it, Smitty. She's the ringleader.
Smitty (Guard 1): Come on, Grandma! Move it! Put your hands up!
Mrs. Steinmetz: I most certainly will not! If you say "please," I might consider it.
Smitty: All right. Please!
[Mrs. Steinmetz puts her hands up.]
Mrs. Steinmetz: There, now; you see, that wasn't so difficult after all. If you would mind your manners, young man, life would be easier for all of us. And now would you be good enough to tell me just exactly what you are doing with my furniture?
[Smitty reaches for a pair of handcuffs after putting his gun away.]
Smitty: How do we know, lady? All I can tell you is that nothing goes out without Mr. Hawk's okay.

View Quote Nicole Harris: If I do marry Willoughby, I'd like the satisfaction of nailing him myself!

Willoughby: May I say something?
Nicole: No! I'm still mad at you for not taking care of Grandma!
Grandma Steinmetz: If we can't figure out where he lives, my idea won't work.
Nicole: Well, we'll just have to think of something else.
Willoughy: I am going to say something! I've sent Uncle Alonzo a Christmas card every year since I was 7 years old. [He pulls out a card with the correct address on it.] And here's his address!
Nicole: Willoughby! Oh, you're wonderful! [She gives him a hug and kiss.]
View Quote Nicole: Are you all right, Grandma?
Grandma Steinmetz: Of course. I just met the most interesting man!
View Quote Nicole: Remember, Alonzo Hawk sent him!
View Quote Nicole: You stupid bucket of bolts! You always have to do everything your way!
