Ruthless People
Movie Quote Quiz

Sandy: No matter what I do, there's nothing I can say... she just tears into me! She hates me.
Ken Kessler: Sandy, you're her kidnapper. She's supposed to hate you.

Ken Kessler: I mean, what the hell's the point of being a decent person when no-one is? Let's be assholes and get rich.

Sandy: I don't think he loves her.
Ken Kessler: Well, let's face it, she's not Mother Teresa. Gandhi would have strangled her.

Ken Kessler: Sandy, it's over. Sam isn't going to pay the ransom, he couldn't care less. I'm no criminal. I can't even sell retail, and that's legal.

Carol: You get that tape of Sam Stone finishing off his wife, and that man will give us anything we want for the rest of his life.
Earl Mott: Yeah! Then we're off to Haiti.
Carol: Not Haiti, Tahiti.
Earl Mott: Oh... I knew that.

Factual error: Barbara befriends her kidnappers in her joy over losing 20 pounds while she was with them. Leaving aside that she's been with them no more than two weeks, and it's near impossible to lose 20 pounds in that short amount of time even if you literally starved yourself; she also most definitely would have noticed a weight loss that big. On a frame as small as hers, she would have noticed big differences in her body's shape and feel, and none of her clothes would have fit. (01:00:00)

Question: If Barbara had a dog named Muffy then how come she didn't speak about it the whole film? Didn't she even think about wanting her dog back if she decides to stay with the kidnappers?
