Weekend at Bernie's
Movie Quote Quiz

Mugger: Give me your money! Your wallets!
Larry Wilson: Oh, get your ass out of here! It's too hot!

[Richard's in the water behind the boat and Larry is returning.]
Richard Parker: Stop the boat, you idiot! Stop the boat!
Larry Wilson: Where...where are the brakes?
Richard Parker: Boats don't have brakes, captain!

Larry Wilson: What kind of a host invites you to his house for the weekend and dies on you?

Security Officer: Hot enough for ya, Larry?
Larry Wilson: No, Harris! Why don't you turn up the heat?
Security Officer: OK, I'll tell the engineer.

Larry Wilson: "A little brown-nosing, a little ass-kissing, work our way up that corporate ladder?" WHY can't you be a lazy shit like I am?

Tawny: Bernie? Hi. Is Bernie around?
Larry Wilson: Hello. No, haven't seen him. But, we just got here. We're gonna be here all weekend. We're house guests.
Tawny: Well, tell him Tawny borrowed his boat to go skiing.
Larry Wilson: Hi, Tawny. I'm horny.

Gwen: You wanna sit down?
Richard Parker: No, better not! No! The way things are going, I'm gonna break my ass!

Larry Wilson: We could call the cops, Richard, but you know where we'd be spending our weekend. In some... goddamned hot police station answering questions we don't know the answers to.

Larry Wilson: Why don't we just pretend he didn't die? Just for a bit.

Larry Wilson: How do you like that? The guy gets laid more times dead than I do alive.

Richard Parker: Well, you're a half hour late.
Larry Wilson: Only half hour? I'm usually forty-five minutes late. I'm early today.

Continuity mistake: Right before Richard discovers that Bernie is dead and Larry is talking about drugs becoming a career, "I watch the news. I read." There is a side/back view of Larry talking and neither his gestures or his mouth line up with what he is saying.

Question: Wouldn't it be against regulation for a house, especially of that size, to be built on a section of the beach that the tide would eventually come up to? A sturdy foundation is absolutely of the question with there being nothing but sand to build it on. When the tide came up to pull Bernie into the water, it definitely would've made contact with the house.

Answer: Yes it would, but Bernie was a greedy and selfish man, he would have bribed contractors and inspectors to get it built. He wanted to live the life of a big shot. Like "The Wolf of Wall Street."
