Fielding Mellish: Blood! That should be on the inside!
Fielding Mellish: I object, your honor! This trial is a travesty. It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
Fielding Mellish: We fell in love. Well, I fell in love - she just stood there.
Fielding Mellish: Doing a sociological study on perversion. I'm up to Advanced Child Molesting.
Sharon Craig: Differences of views should be tolerated, but not when they are too different. Then he becomes a subversive mother.
Fielding Mellish: That's very wise, you know...? That's, I think, pithy. Nancy: It was pithy. It had... great pith. Fielding Mellish: Yeth. Pith.
Fielding Mellish: I had a good relationship with my parents. They rarely every h-... I think they hit me only once, actually, in my whole childhood. They, they, uh, started beating me on the 23rd of December in 1942, and stopped beating me in the late Spring of '44.
Howard Cosell: The door opens. It's El Presidente waving at the crowd. A shot rings out! He turns and runs back to the building. The crowd has gone wild. He is caught in a crossfire of bullets. And down! It's over! It's all over for El Presidente!
Nancy: Can... can you, like, define the meaning of love? Fielding Mellish: What do you... define... it's love! I love you! I... I want you in a way of cherishing your... your... your totality and your otherness, and... and in the sense of a presence, and a being, and a whole coming and a going in a room with grapefruit, and... and love of a thing of nature in a sense of not wanting or being jealous of the thing that a person possesses. Nancy: Do you have any gum?

Nancy: You're immature, Fielding. Fielding Mellish: [whining] How am I immature? Nancy: Well, emotionally, sexually, and intellectually. Fielding Mellish: Yeah, but what other ways?
Fielding Mellish: When is the revolution? Esposito: Six months. Fielding Mellish: Six months? I have a rented car!
Esposito: You have a chance to die for freedom. Fielding Mellish: Yes, well, freedom is wonderful. On the other hand, if you're dead, it's a tremendous drawback to your sex life.
Nancy: Would you like to volunteer for the Volunteers for San Marcos?
Nancy: May I ask... what do you do? Fielding Mellish: I'm a product tester for a large corporation. I make sure products are safe and practical. Today I tested an exercise machine, and an electrically warm toilet seat for cold days.
Fielding Mellish: I love Eastern philosophy. It's... it's metaphysical, and redundant. Abortively pedantic. Nancy: I know just what you mean!
Fielding Mellish: You don't have hostility to the male sex, do you? Nancy: Oh, Women's Lib do not automatically mean castration.

Nancy: I want to work with pygmies in Africa! I want to work with lepers in a leper colony! I don't think that you... Fielding Mellish: I'm willing to...! No, it's perfectly okay with me! I like leprosy! If that's what you're asking me... I'm perfectly willing to... I like leprosy, I like cholera! I like all the major skin diseases!
Fielding Mellish: Jesus, life is so cruel! [Fielding slams the locker door on his friend's fingers, who doubles over in pain] Fielding Mellish: See what I mean?
Fielding Mellish: I move for a mistrial! This is discrimination! Do you realize there's not a single homosexual on the jury? Judge: Yes there is. Fielding Mellish: Really, which one? Is it the big guy on the end?

[after Fielding Mellish is punched in the back of the neck by a stranger] FBI Security: We missed him. We get most of them.
Fielding Mellish: I'm not suited to this job. Where do I come off testing products? Machines hate me. I should be working at a job I have some aptitude for, like donating sperm to an artificial insemination lab.
Fielding Mellish: [nervously speaking at a fundraiser dinner, while posing as the San Marcos president] Although the United States is a very rich country, and San Marcos is a very poor one, there are a great many things we have to offer your country in return for aid. For instance, there... there are locusts. We have more locusts. There are locusts of all races and creeds. These, these locusts, incidentally, are available at popular prices. And so, by the way, are most of the women of San Marcos. Now then, despite the tiny size of our nation, few people realize that we lead the world in hernias. They also fail to realize that before Columbus discovered your country, he... he stopped in San Marcos and contracted a disease which today can be cured with one shot of penicillin.
