  • Vitruvius: My fellow Master Builders. Including but not limited to Robin Hood, Mermaid Lady, Gandalf, Swamp Creature, 1980s Something Space Guy...

    Benny: Hello.

    Vitruvius: ...The 2002 NBA All Stars and Wonder Woman. You have traveled far to be here for a moment of great import. We have learned that Lord Business plans to unleash a fully-weaponized Kragle on Taco Tuesday to end the world as we know it.

    [the crowd gets restless]

  • Benny: Hi! I'm Ben, but you can call me Benny, and I can build a Spaceship! Watch!

  • Benny: Hey, Quaid! I'm gonna squash you!

    Douglas Quaid: Benny! Here!

    Benny: [shouts] Where the fuck are you?

    Douglas Quaid: [killing him with a large drill] SCREW YOU!

  • Benny: [to Mary, the three-breasted hooker] Baby, you make me wish I had three hands.

  • Vilos Cohaagen: [after Cohaagen's team kills Kuato] So this is the great man. Hmph. No wonder he kept out of sight. Well, my friend...

    [puts his hands on Quaid's shoulders]

    Vilos Cohaagen:'re a hero.

    Douglas Quaid: Fuck you!

    Vilos Cohaagen: Don't be modest. Kuato is dead. The resistance has been completely wiped out and you were the key to the whole thing.

    Douglas Quaid: [to Melina] He's lying.

    Melina: [to Quaid] You two-faced bastard!

    Vilos Cohaagen: You can't blame him, princess.

    [His finger grazes Melina's face]

    Vilos Cohaagen: He's innocent. You see, Quaid, none of my people could get close to Kuato. Fuckin' mutants could always sniff us out. So Hauser and I sat down and invented you: the perfect mole.

    Douglas Quaid: You know you're lying. Hauser turned against you.

    Vilos Cohaagen: Uh-uh. That's what we wanted you to think. Fact is, Hauser volunteered to become "Doug Quaid." It was the only way to fool the psychics.

    Douglas Quaid: Get your story straight.

    [Points to Richter]

    Douglas Quaid: This idiot has been trying to kill me ever since I went to Rekall. You don't kill someone you're trying to plant.

    Vilos Cohaagen: He wasn't in on it. You set him off by going to Rekall.

    Douglas Quaid: So, why I am still alive?

    Vilos Cohaagen: We gave you lots of help.

    [points to Benny]

    Vilos Cohaagen: Benny here...

    Benny: [to Quaid] My pleasure, man.

    Vilos Cohaagen: The guy with the suitcase, the mask, the money, the message from Hauser. All of that was set up by us.

    Douglas Quaid: Sorry. Too perfect.

    Vilos Cohaagen: Perfect, my ass! You pop your memory cap before we can activate you. Richter goes hog-wild screwing up everything that I spent a year planning. Frankly... I'm amazed it worked!

    Douglas Quaid: Well, Cohaagen. I've got to hand it to you. It's the best mind-fuck yet.

  • Benny: Hey, man, I got five kids to feed!

    [Quaid hands him a wad of cash]

    Douglas Quaid: Take them to the dentist.

  • [the traitorous Benny shoots George/Kuato]

    Benny: Congratulations, Quaid. You led us right to him.

    Douglas Quaid: Benny? Why?

    Melina: How can you do this? You're a mutant.

    Benny: [shrugs] I got four kids to feed.

    Douglas Quaid: So what happened to number five?

    Benny: [beat] Aw, shit, man! You got me. I'm not even married. Now, shut up and put your fucking hands in the air!

  • Benny: I'm gonna drill you, sucker! I'm gonna grind you up!

  • Benny: You ever fuck a mutant?

  • [Kuato is dying]

    Kuato: Quaid... Quaid...

    Benny: Forget it, man, his fortune-telling days are over.

    Kuato: Start the reactor. Free Mars...

    [Richter appears and shoots Kuato through the head]

  • Benny: Hey, man, you need a cab?

    Douglas Quaid: Well, what's wrong with this one?

    [points to other cabbie]

    Benny: [laughs] He ain't got five kids to feed.

    Douglas Quaid: Where's yours?

    Benny: Right over there man.

    [takes Quaid with him]

    Punk Cabbie: Hey. Hey, man, that's my fare. Hey, asshole, that's my fare.

    Benny: Eat this!

    [gives him the finger]

  • [while being chased and shot by Richter in another Johnnycab]

    Benny: [yells at Quaid] What are you trying to do to me, man?

    Melina: Shut up and drive!

    Benny: Hey, I got five kids to feed.

  • Douglas Quaid: Tell me something. Are all psychics...

    Benny: Freaks? Afraid so, man. It goes with the territory.

    Douglas Quaid: What happened to them?

    Benny: Cheap domes and no air to clean out the rays.

    [they are outside The Last Resort]

    Benny: So, this is it. The Last Resort! You sure you wanna go in there, man?

    Douglas Quaid: Why not?

    Benny: 'Cause I know this *much* better place down the street! The girls are cleaner, the liquor ain't watered down...

    Douglas Quaid: Sure, and you get kickbacks.

    Benny: Ha ha ha ha! Hey man, I got five kids to feed!

    Douglas Quaid: [gives him a wad of cash] Take them to the dentist.

    Benny: Hey! Thanks, mister! Listen, I'll be waiting right here for you! Benny's the name. Benny!

  • Benny: Alright beauty, this is gonna sound insane, but I need a 2 lane grasshopper in order to get these guys off your back.

    Tobey Marshall: Roger.

    Julia Maddon: What's a grasshopper?

    Tobey Marshall: You may wanna close your eyes for this.

    Julia Maddon: Is it worse than bus, bus, bus?

  • Benny: Let me in, Pike. I'm *hungry*!

    Pike: Go home, Ben.

    Benny: [whining] C'mon I'm hungry.

    Pike: You're floating! C'mon, man, get away from here!

  • Benny: Her yabos scoff at gravity.

  • Benny: [upon firing his shotgun] Oh shit, he wasn't a zombie?

    Barry: No he fucking wasn't!

    Benny: Is he alright? Is he ok?

    Barry: His head is fucked!

  • Barry: We need to find a zombie fast.

    Brooke: A zombie? What do we need a zombie for?

    Benny: This truck runs on zombies. No zombies? No truck.

  • Jerry Jarvis: Silver Streak is a runaway. What do we do?

    Benny: Jeez, it'll be here in four minutes!

  • Benny: Don't ever fuck with Benny the cop.

  • Lasse: Radio Cars?

    Benny: That is what they are called

    Lasse: I will not drive around saying "radio cars"

    Benny: Then some errors will occur. There's a lot of vehicles in the police force. Emergency vehicles, Black Marias...

    Jacob: Benny, we just have two cars. Number one and number two. That can't be too difficult to understand.

  • Benny: I've had a collision down at Östervegen. The trashcan on the left side is completely wasted. Hell, it looks as if a fucking psychopath has been there...

  • Benny: Where the Hell are we going to have lunch now?

  • Benny: Shit, they got some really cool waistcoats.

  • Jacob: What has happened to you hair?

    Benny: Nothing.

    Jacob: Nothing? You're god damn...


    Benny: Stop it.

    Jacob: Do you wear a wig?

    Benny: Jacob, god damn, don't tell anyone.

    Jacob: No.

    Benny: Don't tell anyone. Nobody's going to like me.

    Jacob: Yes.

    Benny: No... I can't do a thing. I don't want to be a cop anymore. I can't even... I'm so fucking bad. I can't even drive a car properly. I'm just a bald egghead.

  • Benny's neighbour: What are you, a woman?

    Benny: No, I'm a cop!

  • Benny: Can you help me with the computer?

    HÃ¥kan: Yes, I'm coming.

    Benny: Come on!

    HÃ¥kan: Just hit the button.

    Benny: Well there is a hell of a lot of buttons, - "Pause", "Delete", "Home".

    Benny: Shit come on.

    Benny: HÃ¥kan!

    HÃ¥kan: Take it easy!

  • Benny: [Benny drives like a lunatic, even though the SWAT-Team is way behind them] Don't fuck with Beny the Cop! You won't catch me! I'm going to turn left.

    [turn right]

    Jacob: What are you talking about, there's nobody chasing us!

  • Jessica: [When Jessica's investigating in the incidents, Benny's explanation to her what he "thinks" what happened to the sausage stall is hilarious. We see a cut scene to Benny's imagine spot how a group of ten masked men standing on a black pickup truck drive by the sausage stall firing a grenade launcher at it]

    [Jessica interrupted]

    Jessica: But why would someone blow Janne's kiosk with a grenade launcher?

    Benny: Deception maneuver. Well, they blow up the kiosk while they plan to do another thing somewhere else. Like in Die Hard 3.

    Jessica: [Having a hard time, believing it] ... Ah, okay.

  • Benny: Well, that settles it, then. My mother definitely drank pool water when she was pregnant with me.

  • Benny: [after being confronted by a pack of wildebeest] Don't panic, I'm in charge here.

    Bridget: That's why we're panicking!

  • [Benny walks up to Hamir]

    Hamir: Oh Benny, I am needing until Friday before I pay you back.

    Benny: No, no, it's Ryan. He's in one of those green boxes, and they took it away. We got to find him.

    Hamir: That is not good, not good at all.

    [Pidgeons are dancing behind him trying to tell him something]

    Hamir: Ah! I know, I know! I am telling him you crazy pigeons!


  • Paulie: Hit the brakes, ugly.

    Benny: Oh, that's cute. You train the bird to insult your customers?

    Paulie: No, I could tell you're ugly all by myself.

  • Benny: I love going Commando!

  • [the Sandlot Kids and their arch-rivals come face-to-face]

    Phillips: It's easy when you play with rejects and a fat kid, Rodriguez.

    Benny: Shut your mouth, Phillips!

    Ham Porter: What'd you say, crap face?

    Phillips: You shouldn't be allowed to touch a baseball. Except for Rodriguez, you're all an insult to the game.

    Ham Porter: Come on! We'll take you on, right here! Right now! Come on!

    Sandlot Kids: Yeah!

    Phillips: We play on a real diamond, Porter. You ain't good enough to lick the dirt off our cleats.

    Ham Porter: Watch it, jerk!

    Phillips: Shut up, idiot!

    Ham Porter: Moron!

    Phillips: Scab eater!

    Ham Porter: Butt sniffer!

    Phillips: Pus licker!

    Ham Porter: Fart smeller!

    Bertram: [sniffs] Ahh.

    Phillips: You eat dog crap for breakfast, geek!

    Ham Porter: You mix your Wheaties with your mama's toe jam!

    Sandlot Kids: Yeah!

    Phillips: You bob for apples in the toilet! And you like it!

    Ham Porter: You play ball like a giiirrrrrrrrl!

    [entire group stands in shocked silence]

    Phillips: What did you say?

    Ham Porter: You heard me.

    Phillips: Tomorrow. Noon, at our field. Be there, buffalo-butt breath.

    Ham Porter: Count on it, pee-drinking crap-face!

  • Sam: How sick is she?

    Benny: She's plenty sick. Now listen to me, I've been doin' some thinkin'...

    Sam: Because, you know, it seems to me that, I mean, except for being a little mentally ill, she's pretty normal.

  • Benny: Hey. Where's Sam?

    Joon: I didn't mean to kick him out. I mean, I didn't kick him out, he just - he just left.

    Benny: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What - What happened? Did something happen?

    Joon: He just - he just left. He was - he was in the air and-and-and - with a thing and - that was really loud. It was really loud. And all- I-I just kept seeing... He didn't mean to do it.

    Benny: Do it? What? What- Did he- What did he do?

    Joon: He cleaned the house.

  • Joon: She was given to fits of semi-precious metaphors.

    Benny: The woman is a housekeeper, Joon, not an English professor.

  • Joon: Should we let him in?

    Benny: Yeah, before someone slaps a stamp on him and sends him to Guam.

  • Joon: He can really cook, can't he?

    Benny: Uh, yeah. Although for grilled cheese, I mighta used a wool setting.

    Joon: That's what I told him.

    Benny: Really? What-what did he use?

    Joon: Rayon.

    Benny: Mm.

    Joon: Silk would have been too soggy. Cotton would have...

    Benny: Would have burned it.

    Benny: What's in the pot?

    Joon: A cousin.

  • Sam: I'm Sam.

    Benny: So I hear. I'm Benny.

    Joon: One. You're out of your tree.

    Sam: It's not my tree.

  • Benny: You can't bet a human being!

  • Benny: So why'd you leave?

    Ruthie: L.A.? I wasn't that good of an actress.

    Benny: Well, that's not how Sam tells it. He's raving about you.

    Ruthie: Yeah, well, he's sweeter than he is judgmental. How long have you known him?

    Benny: Sam? Uh, 72 hours.

    Ruthie: Be serious.

    Benny: I am... serious.

    Ruthie: Really?

    Benny: I'm always serious. I'm too serious.

  • Benny: I hope you're happy... I hope you're happy with what you have done to her.

    [throws Sam against wall]

    Benny: You just stay the hell away from my sister.

    Sam: [shakes his head] No... no.

    Benny: You wanna know why everyone laughs at you, Sam? Because you're an idiot. You're a first-class *moron*.

    [lets go of Sam. Pauses]

    Sam: [nodding head while stumbling slowly away] You're scared, Benny.

    Benny: I'm *what*?

    Sam: You're scared. I can see it... And I know why. I used to look up to you. But... uh... now I can't look at you at all.

    [walks out of hospital]

  • Joon: Why do you hate me so much?

    Benny: I don't hate you.

    Joon: You need me to be sick.

  • [first lines]

    Randy Burch: So we're planning our next vacation, right? I want Australia, she wants Italy. I like snorkeling, she likes garlic. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, she says to me: Do I need her? Jesus, Benny. What kind of a question is that? I mean, "need?" What does it really mean to need someone?

    Eric: Benny, fuel line!

    [and the phone begins ringing]

    Benny: Hey Waldo, could you answer that phone?

    Waldo: Hello?

    UPS Man: [walks in] I need a check, Benny. COD.

    Benny: In a minute. Meet me in the office.

    UPS Man: All right...

    Benny: [about Randy's cigarette] Whoa! Put that out! I got a fuel line broke.

    Waldo: Hey, Benny. Joon's on the phone again.

    Benny: Well, tell her I'll call her back. Find out what she wants.

    Waldo: It's an emergency. She says you're runnin' low on Peanut Butter Super Chunks.

    Benny: [under his breath] An emergency...

  • [last lines]

    Ruthie: Haven't we tried this before?

    Benny: [presenting flowers] Yeah, but my life's a lot less complicated now.

    Ella: An FWI?

    Benny: Flying while intoxicated.

  • Slannen the Elf: [rustling] Oh no... The rustling always comes before the screaming and the running. I *knew* this was gonna happen! They're just gonna find pieces of us scattered across the forest.

    Benny: [a rabbit hops out of the bushes] Oh, a bunny. You know, the last known case of a bunny attack was, well, *never*.

  • Ella: Why don't you like music?

    Slannen the Elf: Oh that's right, because elves are supposed to be so happy and joyful all the time. Singin' and dancin' for the *man*. I don't want to be an entertainer. I want to be...

    Ella: What?

    Slannen the Elf: Nothin...

    Ella: No, what were you going to say.

    Slannen the Elf: Forget it. It's silly.

    Ella: Please tell me.

    Slannen the Elf: I want to be a lawyer.

    Benny: I guess that would be in small claims court.

  • Ella: [hearing a noise in the forest] What was that?

    Benny: Probably something that wants to eat us.

  • Mandy: [Talking about Bennie] He knows everything.

    Benny: No, I won't!

    Walter: Yes, you will!

    Benny: So what?

    Walter: Benny, if you don't loan me that money. I'll...

    Benny: You'll what? Huh? You'll what?

    Walter: I'll... not like you any more!

    Benny: ...All right.

    Tommy: I'd go for that. Yeah.

    Denny: Yeah, what if we each get a fourth and she gets, like, a third?

    Benny: What are you? Nuts? Then she'd be getting more than us!

    Denny: How do you figure?

    Benny: Where are you gonna get four fourths and a third? Can't you add?

    Denny: I don't do fractions, all right?

  • Ray: What the hell are you gonna do with a flower shop?

    Benny: 700-800! That's a lot!

    Egon: Yes, that's because it's fully automated.

Thirty-five summers.
