William Miller: I kept thinking I was gonna go home the next day.
Dick Roswell: Yeah. So did I... fifteen years ago.
Sapphire: William? I forgot to tell you. Your mom called. She says you gotta call home immediately. And she says to tell you, "I know what's going on."
Lester Bangs: The Doors? Jim Morrison? He's a drunken buffoon posing as a poet.
Alice Wisdom: I like The Doors.
Lester Bangs: Give me The Guess Who. They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic.
Lester Bangs: Don't let those swill merchants rewrite you.
Russell Hammond: It doesn't sound like music anymore, you know, it sounds like... lifestyle maintenance, or something.
Russell Hammond: You, Aaron, are what it's all about. You're real. Your room is real. Your friends are real. Real, man, real. You know? Real. You're more important than all the silly machinery. Silly machinery. And you know it! In eleven years its going to be 1984, man. Think about that.
Aaron: Wanna see me feed a mouse to my snake?
Russell Hammond: Yes.
Trivia: Penny Lane picks up William to go see Stillwater at the Riot Club in L.A. In the very beginning of the scene in her car, a reflection passes up the windshield over William's face as they are driving. The Reflection is the prism and spectrum from Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album. There are no other reflections in this scene.
