How to Beat the High Co$t of Living
Movie Quote Quiz

Louise: I don't know, there's just gotta be some way we can make money.
Elaine: We can make porno flicks and all wear masks.
Jane: No, Robert and I got bombed out one night, and we put "I love you" on my ankle.
Elaine: OK, we'll wear masks, you'll wear socks.


Elaine: Why don't we just become hookers and rent a motel room?
Jane: We'd starve to death, there's 12,000 college girls in this town giving it away.
Elaine: You're right.


Jerry: I'll give you 10 bucks for this racket, Elaine.
Elaine: It's a deal, Jerry.
Jerry: Say, did Millard have any balls?
[Long pause, the friends look at each other grinning sarcastically].
Elaine: Nah I can't. It's too easy.


Albert: Louise, I swear to you there is no money. If you only knew what was going on in that hospital. It's not only the IRS, I'm in deep financial trouble, and I need you to hold me, to hug me, to kiss me, to reassure me that everything isn't as hopeless as it looks.
Louise: The only thing that is hopeless, Albert is that you're horny 24 hours a day.

Factual error: It is established early in the movie (Natalie's call) that the money ball event celebration is part of the -first - anniversary of the Valley River Center, the shopping mall where most of the movie is set, with the town of Eugene, Oregon, mentioned explicitly. However, the center opened in 1969, and the movie is set in 1980. The original script was written in 1971, so that line needed an update and slipped by.
