Jack Lucas: Did you lose your mind all at once, or was it a slow, gradual process?

Jack Lucas: It's important to think. It's what separates us from lentils.
Anne Napolitano: I don't believe that God made man in his image. 'Cause most of the shit that happens comes from man. Now I think man was made in the Devil's image. And women were created out of God. 'Cause after all, women can have babies, which is kind of like creating. And which also counts for the fact that women are so attracted to men... 'cause let's face it... the Devil is a hell of a lot more interesting! So the whole point in life is for men and women to get married... so that God and the Devil can get together and work it out.
Anne Napolitano: Didn't you say that what you liked about our relationship is that we didn't have to think? We could just be there for each other. Jack Lucas: Suicidal paranoiacs'll say anything to get laid.
Jack Lucas: I'm hearing horses! Parry will be so pleased!
Parry: Come back, we'll rummage.
Parry: No... but I *do* believe in fairies.

[man throws coins on the ground near his feet, which Disabled Veteran cannot reach] Jack Lucas: Asshole. He didn't even look at you. Disabled Veteran: He's payin' so he don't have to look. See... guy goes to work every day, eight hours a day, seven days a week. Gets his nuts so tight in a vice that he starts questioning the very fabric of his existence. Then one day, 'bout quitting time, Boss calls him into the office and says, "Hey Bob, whyncha come on in here and kiss my ass for me, will you?" Well, he says, "Hell with it. I don't care what happens, I just want to see the expression on his face as I jab this pair of scissors into his arm." [sighs] Disabled Veteran: Then he thinks of me. He says, "Waitaminit. I got both my arms, I got both my legs. At least I ain't begging for a living. Sure enough, Bob's gonna put those scissors down and pucker right up. See, I'm what you call kind of a "moral traffic light", really. I'm like sayin', "Red! Go no further! Boooo-ee boooo-ee boooo-ee..."
