Helicopter Pilot: Fuel status says we turn back now.
Jack Ryan: Wait a minute. Fuel status? You have a reserve, don't you?
Helicopter Pilot: Yes, sir. I've got a ten minute reserve. But I'm not allowed to invoke that except in time of war.
Jack Ryan: Listen, mister, if you don't get me on board that goddamn submarine, that just might be what you'll have! You got me? Now, you have ten more minutes' worth of fuel, we stay here ten more minutes.
Teacher: All you need to say is two words... two specific words, though. What they are? 'Not. Guilty.'.
Mickey Bartlett: So you're telling me you weren't happy on your wedding day either?
Brenda Bartlett: Telling me you felt trapped minutes before the ceremony didn't exactly bring a fucking smile to my face.
Mickey Bartlett: I was talking about the tux.
Brenda Bartlett: Oh, so this is all just some big misunderstanding then?
Guest at Party: Nick, I can't believe you look so good for someone so old. How do you do that?
Nick Kudrow: Drugs, my dear. Massive doses of drugs.
Nick Kudrow: You know, my wife says my people skills are like my cooking skills: quick and tasteless.
Susie Waggoner: ...And you save your money... and buy a nice little house, with a white picket fence, and live happily ever after.
Frederick J. Frenger Jr.: Tell you what. Let's go straight to the "happily ever after" part, OK?
Susie Waggoner: So... are you gonna tell me about it?
Frederick J. Frenger Jr.: Yeah, I'm gonna tell you about it. This straight life we've been living gave me a false sense of security. For a second I thought I was some kind of solid citizen or something.
Susie Waggoner: All I wanna know is what happened to you.
Frederick J. Frenger Jr.: Some guy in a blue Toyota pickup ran me over.
Susie Waggoner: I thought it must've been something like that.
