  • Barney: I'm 50 yrs old, got nothing to show for it. Live in this shitey flat/ not had a ride since Shakin Stephens had a number one, a mother who sticks her claws in like an old buzzard. A man by rights should live to reach his full potential and have a kick at the ball.

  • Barney: His Freezer was too wee!

  • Angela: You look just like your son when you get mad.

  • Barney: Why did you wrap yourself in toilet paper?

    Zachary Hutton: Because I was cold.

  • Zach: You see, I truly love women.

    Barney: Oh, I see.

    Zach: I love everything about them, Barney. I love the way they feel, the way they smell, most of the time. I have to admit, I don't like women with long, round toenails. But that is the only abrogation so far. And so far has been quite a while and quite a few.

    Barney: Oh, that's true.

    Zach: I long for a meaningful, monogamous, healthy relationship. And I was sure I had it with Alex, but the truth is, Barney, in the deep dark silence of my considered conscience, where there's just me and me, the unmitigated truth is, I want it all.

    Barney: Hey, wanting is okay.

    Zach: I want a loving, faithful, caring, caretaking wife, and I wanna make love to everything else in long skirts, with bare feet and ripe, juicy mouths. Little boy-girls with small firm breasts and tight asses. Rubensque round women with big Mother Earth breasts and green eyes. God! I could go on and on.

    Barney: Don't. I'm getting a hard-on.

    Zach: Me too.

  • Zach: I figured it out, Barney. You can't cure a problem until you know what's causing the problem. But before you can see what's causing the problem, you first have to remove the problem.

    Barney: You've gotta give up the vices to get to the virtues. I could've told you that.

    Zach: Yeah? Why didn't you?

    Barney: You want it to take, you got to figure it out for yourself.

    Zach: Okay, wise guy, what's my problem?

    Barney: You're scared like the rest of us. You drink too much, you chase girls much too much, and you don't use your God-given talent anymore.

    Zach: You've known that all along?

    Zack Hutton: It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it.

  • Mother: [takes his order from restaurant counterman Barney] So where's the mayo?

    Barney: On the side.

    Mother: Why don't you put it on the burger?

    Barney: I lied four times in my life; I stole apples when I was a kid; I cheated on my wife once; I even prayed for the death of my in-laws. But putting mayonnaise on a bacon cheeseburger with peanut butter and onions is a sin you alone will have to be responsible for!

  • Henrietta Phelps: Why don't we go around the room and introduce ourselve, and tell everyone why you came to the Phelps School?

    Eddie Lipschultz: Hi! My name is Eddie, Eddie Lipschultz. I'm here because my mom's new boyfriend says I can't sleep in her bedroom anymore. I figured if I came to charm school, I might be able to... , there might be chance that I'd... , I could possibly...

    Barney: [interrupting] Get laid?

    Barney: [Eddie nods] I thought so.

  • Humping: I'm Humping, the butler.

    Barney: Oh, yeah? So who's fucking the maid?

  • Barney: I wanted to thank you for only giving me the clap. These days it's refreshing to meet a girl with curable diseases.

  • Roy Raja: My name is Roy Rahmataj.

    Barney: Hey, mind if we call you Roy Raja? Haha!

    Roy Raja: You may call me "Lion of Kashmir".

    Barney: And you may call me "The Boner of East L.A."

  • Barney: Who's this? Your son?

    Barney: Ohhh, your nephew. He looks Iranian to me. You know my sister, Maria, she married an Iranian guy. And they are hairy son of a bitches. You know they got hair on their chest, their backs, their butts. We're talking Winnie the Pooh. We're talking Chewbacca, you know the guy in Star Wars who goes AHHHH! AHHHH!

    Woman with Dogs: Yes, this is a Shar-Pei; it's a Chinese dog.

    Barney: [Barney pulls on the dog's wrinkled skin] Damn, you need to iron this dog, lady. Look at this!

    Woman with Dogs: No, stop, that's just how the dog is!

    Barney: Shit, you could fit two dogs in here!

    [he continues to pull on the dog's loose skin]

    Woman with Dogs: [Slapping Barney's hand away] No! Please, stop abusing my dog, you horrible man!

    Barney: You have any Vietnamese neighbors?

    Woman with Dogs: No, I don't think so.

    Barney: Well, if any ever move in, and you go on vacation, believe me, you're going to want to take Fluffy with you! You'll come back and your dog will be missing it's hind leg, saying 'where were you?'

    Woman with Dogs: Oh! That's horrible! You terrible, horrible man!

    Barney: You go next door and talk to your neighbor, and he'll be standing there, picking his teeth, 'No! We no see Fluffy! What your dog look like? Your dog have big, juicy hind leg?'

    Woman with Dogs: Oh, you awful man! Please, go away!

    Barney: Fine! I guess this means we can't be pals no more?

  • Barney: [enters the bathroom] How has shit in the bidé?

  • Barney: [the class at the Phelps School is introducing themselves] Hi, my name is Barney Benar. I'm here with my friend Jake because there's this girl he's trying to nail...

    Jake Bateman: [shakes his head and clears his throat] Mmm-mm!

    Barney: What? Oh. Sure he loves her, sure he wants to fuck her...

    Barney: [Jake makes the same sound, louder] Oh, whatever. I'm just with him, man.

  • Barney: Do you ever think he might come after you? You ever think about him at all?

    Clarice Starling: Well, at least thirty seconds of everyday. I can't help it. He's always with me, like a bad habit.

  • Barney: [Repeated Line] That's what I thought.

  • Barney: Anyone up for a game of Rummy?

    Carol: Where the hell have you two been?

    Barney: ...Or maybe Solitaire.

  • Annie Lamm: Grandpa, can I drive?

    Barney: You want to get us killed, kid?

    Annie Lamm: Oh, come on.

    Barney: What if a cop sees us? Or worse, your mother?

    Annie Lamm: There are only three cops on this Island, and they play paper football all day! I can do it.

    Barney: Driving a car is a little harder than a boat, Missy. And we all know how that turned out.

    Grandpa Donald: I don't know, Annie...

    Annie Lamm: OK... I guess when I'm your age I won't be able to tell my grandkids that my Grandpa taught me how to drive. It'll just be some random boyfriend instead.

    Barney: Captain, are you crazy?

    Grandpa Donald: Oh, don't get your panties all in a bunch. Live a little.

    Barney: I'd like to live a lot, that's the problem.

    Annie Lamm: Don't worry, Barney. I'm a good driver.

    Barney: I hope they spell my name right in the obituaries.

    Barney: Right, right. I've heard that one in my sleep.

  • Barney: [On learning some of his fellow med-students are going to make out] You're going to have sex?... Don't!... Every time someone has sex in a horror story they get murdered!"
