Movie Quote Quiz

Moocher: Mike, the time comes when we just all have to go our own ways, you know.
Mike: Oh, you're a real adult, aren't ya. B-town boy grows up.

Mike: You want to tell me who did it?
Cyril: It was dark... All I can tell your for sure is that they all wore Brut after-shave and reeked of Lavoris.

Mom: What's the matter?
Dad: He's shavin'.
Mom: Well... so what?
Dad: ...his legs.

Dave: Pop, can I have this Saturday off?
Dad: Hell no.
Dave: Eh, just this once, Pop. The Italians are coming Saturday.
Dad: I don't care if the second coming's coming.

Cyril: Don't forget your toothbrush! You're still in your cavity-prone years.

Cyril: I sure miss playing basketball. I got depressed as hell when my athlete's foot and jock itch went away.

Dave: Buon giorno, papa.
Dad: I'm not "papa." I'm your god-damned father.

Dave: Have a nice trip.
Katherine: You too.
Dave: But I'm not going anywhere.
Katherine: I don't know about that.

Dad: No, I don't feel lucky to be alive! I feel lucky I'm not dead. There's a difference.

Continuity mistake: There is an error in the scene where Dave is drafting behind the Cinzano truck. In the second close up shot of his legs (cranks) pedaling the bike he is in a lower (easier) gear than the previous shot even though he is supposed to be riding significantly faster.
