Frederick: I'm not interested in what your interior decorator thinks, okay?
Dusty: I can't commit to anything without consulting her first. That's what I have her for, okay?
Frederick: This is degrading. You don't buy paintings to blend in with the sofa.
Dusty: It's not a sofa - it's an ottoman!
Mickey: The heart is a resilient little muscle.
Elliot: For all my education, accomplishments and so-called wisdom, I can't fathom my own heart.
Gail: Listen, kid, I think you snapped your cap. Maybe you need a few weeks in Bermuda or something. Or go to a whorehouse!
Mickey: I had a great evening; it was like the Nuremberg Trials.
Norma: It's a good thing that we had a talented daughter!
Evan: I can only hope that she was mine! With you as her mother, her father could be anybody in Actor's Equity!
Mickey's Father: How the hell do I know why there were Nazis? I don't know how the can opener works!
Frederick: You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions. The reason they can never answer the question "How could it possibly happen?" is that it's the wrong question. Given what people are, the question is "Why doesn't it happen more often?"
Evan: Then at lunch she got drunker and drunker and finally she became Joan Collins!
Mickey's Father: And you're gonna believe in Jesus Christ?
Mickey: I know - sounds funny. But, I'm gonna give it a try.
