Les' DMV Examiner: Driving instructor: Now Anderson, I want you to take a good look at my cup of coffee. Now, I LOVE my coffee. It's probably the only thing I cherish on this god forsaken mud ball called Earth! What I'm trying to say, Anderson, is that most examiners rely on this clipboard...
[throws the clipboard out the window]
Les' DMV Examiner: I don't believe in that shit. What I do believe is in my cup of coffee. Now this coffee is hot. If it falls on me it'll probably burn me, right? Speak up, son!

Tow Truck Driver: [driver stops and Les goes flying off the hood] Just how much you talking.
Les: Hey dad, did you take a look at that brochure I gave you?

Les' DMV Examiner: You're in luck son... the cup... was empty...!

Club Doorman: Boy, you wouldn't be with her if she was your Siamese twin. Now get lost.
Les: Not too bad for a kid without his license, huh?

Les: You know what I'd like to know is what my girlfriend's daughter and my son and some weird Hare Krishna dude are all doing together.
Jude: We're just friends, okay?
Les: No, I'm not judging. I mean, I met your mother at an orgy.
Les: [Talking to Diane and Eliza] Okay, listen, you two are peas in a pod, all right? You know why she doesn't tell you anything, Diane? Because you try to control every situation you get your hands on. And you know why she does that? Cause you are totally out of control.
Les: Why don't you just try playing it all a little bit by ear, you know?
Eliza: Is that what you do, Les? You just play it all by ear?
Les: Yeah, I find it's the best organ to play by. I mean, I have been accused of playing by another, but...
Beano: [Playing a game to name bands with parts of the body as part of their name] Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show!
Clare: Objection, your honor!
Hughie: Objection sustained.
Beano: Well, some people 'ave hooks instead of hands.
Les: Yeah, but it's not part of the body; it's not... anotomical.
Beano: It is if you haven't got a fuckin' hand!
Les: [pointing to at the girls T-Shirt] Where did you get that T-Shirt
Beano: Looks like '77's been through the wash a few times
Dutch Lady: 'Tis my father's, he say best band he ever saw.

Ray Simms: It's another sign, Brian sent them.

Les: Do you know what he was wearing
Ray Simms: I, I don't recall
Les: Why do they always assume the singer is the voice of the band?
[as journalists swarm Ray Simms and ignore the other members]
Les: Like the t-shirt. What's that mean?
Ray Simms: It's a Zen quotation.
Les: Is it?
Beano: I thought it was Japanese for Calvin Klein.
Hughie: Hope this isn't another Sunderland!
[speaking of Ray's mood swings]
Luke Shand: What happened at Sunderland?

Les: Yeah, he'd never find the blade.
Les: Hey, it's supposed to be rock and roll, man, not The Phantom of The Fuckin' Opera!
[reacting to Ray's prima donna ego]
Beano: What do you think then, Luke?
Luke Shand: I thought we were shit, guys.
Les: Kill that racket, Hughie.
Beano: Come again?
Luke Shand: We were totally crap, I mean, especially on 'Heartbreaker'. I think we should dump that altogether.
Tony Costello: It's a classic!
Luke Shand: Well, maybe we should agree on what key it's in.
Ray Simms: C.
Tony Costello: G.
Ron: You're not gonna tell Nicki, are you?
Les: No, but you should.
Ron: I'm not going to.
Les: Damn I surprised! You always seem like a coward to me.
Les: And these... these... these really work?
Dr. Dobson: Our results have been remarkably promising.
Les: [voice-over] I once read about a monster called the Extracator, that lived off people's souls. Only, the thing was, the Extracator ate a person's soul in their sleep over a 16 year period. Like it would nibble off a crumb every night, until there wasn't anything left. So a person had no way to realize what was going on. They just had this vague sense that something was slowly disappearing.
Les: [voice-over] I'm not looking forward to returning to my old life; but, the truth is, with so many billions and billions of people on the planet, most of us can't be unique or important in any meaningful way. We go to sleep, we wake up, we go to work, we eat, we spend time with friends, we watch TV, maybe we even fall in love, but we don't have any magical powers and we don't have any great battles to fight, no evil forces to defeat, and no mysterious men in suits chasing after us. We just have reality - and believing anything else is just... well, believing anything else is just crazy, isn't it?
Les: [voice-over] I used to dream about flying. It went the same way every night. I realized that I could fly. No that's not quite right, I realized that there was no reason I *couldn't* fly, and after that I'd float off the ground and soar above the city. But I haven't had that dream in a while now. Lately, I dream about more ordinary things, like doing my laundry, or shopping for groceries, or riding on elevators. I wonder why that is?
Les: [quoting the department mantra] I'm important, and I keep the city running.
Steve: Good. Now, repeat.
Les: I'm important, I'm important, I'm important.
Les: [has just run full-speed into a wall] I'm, uh, I'm not like most people.
Cop #1: Yeah, I can see that.
Les: Your force field is good; my teleporting is better.
Les: [voice-over] Most people never stop to think about the problems associated with being a superhero. Instead they tend to focus on the more glamorous aspects of our lives. They focus on the powers we have, the things we can do that no one else can. But the unfortunate truth is that, while being different from everyone else can be exciting at first, ultimately it can get a little lonely.
Les: [repeatedly] You can't make me stop.
Les: [as Future Les] These are the men that convince the police that you did something wrong.
Les: Of course.
Jonas Exiler: Les. Earth to Les.
Les: [as Future Les] They designed the drug to build an army of unstoppable assassins. If you won't work for them, they'll try to strip you of your powers, or worse.
Les: They must've... they must've already got to you.
Joey: Who got to us, Les?
Les: The suits. The suits. They know that you're my friends, so they must have put you in some sort of mind shield so that you can't see my powers. Mmm, it's genius.
Les: I know exactly what kind of man you are. I've been dealing with guys like you my whole life. You think you're so much more important than everyone else, that you can do whatever you want to whoever you want. Who do you think would care if YOU disappeared? Who would care about that, huh? Who would care about that, huh? Do you think that anyone would actually care if YOU disappeared?
Jonas Exiler: [beating Les with a 2x4] You're a worthless piece of shit - SAY IT!
Les: [whack] Ow!
Jonas Exiler: YOU'RE A NOBODY!
Les: I'm a worthless...
Jonas Exiler: [whack] YOU'RE A NOBODY!
Les: [whack] Oh! I'm a nobody.
Jonas Exiler: YOU'RE NOTHING!
Les: [whack] AW!
Les: [whack] Oh!
Jonas Exiler: [whack] YOU'RE NOTHING!
Les: I'm nothing. I'm nothing.
Jonas Exiler: You're a worthless piece of SHIT!
Les: [whack] Yeow! I'm a worthless piece of shit.
Les: [whack] Ow! I'm a worthless piece of shit. Ow.
Les: [whack] Oww! Stop it. Ow.
Jonas Exiler: [as Les sobs from the pain] I swear, if I ever see you again, if I ever hear from you again, you're a dead man, a fucking dead man.
Les: [voice-over] It turns out that being a superhero is like many other things in life: when you want to avoid it, crime seems like it's everywhere, but when you're lookin' for it, crime is nowhere to be found. That's why you have to learn to always trust your instincts.
Diana St. Clair: As soon as I domesticate you - get you housebroken - you'll be the best husband a girl ever had.
Mike McCoy: Husband?
Les: [clangs her cymbals to interrupt the conversation] Over my dead body!
Larry: [as Mike test drives Foxhugh's Fox 5 car on the racetrack] Sure knows how to handle that car!
Les: Well, best driver on any track!
Howard Foxhugh: Yeah, it looks like your plan worked.
Howard Foxhugh: You seem pretty anxious to have Mike drive for me.
Les: Oh, yeah, well the prize money is good.
Larry: You see, Mr. Foxhugh, if we keep him busy driving, he won't have any time for your kid.
[Les kicks Larry in the leg]
Larry: Ow! Hey what did you kick me for?
Howard Foxhugh: Cynthia?
Curly: Yeah, if we don't break this up they're liable to do something terrible like get married.
[Les kicks Curly in the leg]
Curly: Ow! What did you kick me for?
Les: It's nothing to worry about. Cynthia isn't even Mike's type.
Larry: Oh, well sure! Who'd want to marry a gorgeous millionairess?
Les: Not me.
[Larry and Curly both at once kick Les in the leg. She screams in pain]
Les: Ow! Oh! Ow! Oh!
Les: [as Lt. Richards enters her kitchen through the back door] What? Is this a raid?
Lt. Tracy Richards: Yeah, reach for the ceiling! Now turn around.
[When she complies, he slaps her derriere]
Lt. Tracy Richards: I just wanted to see if you packed a gun.
Curly: Wow! That was some book!
Les: I saw the movie, and it was dirty!
Joe Head: Who's Disco Bean? He's one of the greatest disco dancers around. I can introduce you to him, he's a friend of mine.
Les: Isn't disco suppose to be dead?
Joe Head: He died? Nobody told me nothin'.
[Nick pulls his truck up to Beulah's Star Ice Castle Lanes, or, depending on how you read the marquee sign, Beulah's Ice Castle Star Lanes]
Nick Peterson: Hey, Charlie.
Charlie: Hi, Nick.
Nick Peterson: How ya doin'?
Charlie: Beats the hell out of me. Hey, what are *you* doin' home?
Nick Peterson: Beats the hell out of me.
Charlie: Hey, Beulah, rack 'em up! Come on!
Nick Peterson: Howdy, Les.
Les: Hey! Nick, what the hell are *you* doin' here?
Nick Peterson: Beats the hell out of me.
[Nick peers around a corner to watch Lexie being trained in ice-skating by Beulah, who is shouting out instructions about Lexie keeping her head up and so forth, and telling her she isn't doing well enough. Lexie spots Nick and runs over on her skates]
Alexis Winston: Nick! Wow!
Nick Peterson: [grabbing her into a hug and allowing her to spin him around] Ohhh.
Beulah Smith: Hey, that was the fastest pre-med course in history!
[Nick hugs Beulah while still hugging Lexie]
Beulah Smith: What are you doing home?
Nick Peterson: I couldn't stay away from my girls.
Les: Wait a minute. Hold it. Hold it. Cool it, fellas. Adam, you know... you know I'm sick of you bustin' your own roof. You know something? You came late. You're stoned. I can smell it all over the bandstand. You're evil with all the cats. Look, why don't you go out there and play real pretty for the people, huh? Well, that's it. You got it. I'm gonna split.
Adam Johnson: Hey, wait a minute, man. Let me tell you something. You don't leave. I leave. You know what that sign says out there? It says 'Adam Johnson' not 'Blindy.' 'Cause I have had you with me for 10 years. You understand that? 10 long years I've had you with me. You should go on a corner some place and have a tin cup and sell pencils. That's what you should be doing.
[Les and Frank, the Internet pornographers, have approached and solicited Tanya in the cafe]
Les: Yeah? Gorgeous cheekbones... yeah, gorgeous cheekbones, they're fantastic. So, anyhow, what I was going to do, I don't want to take up too much of your time. But, there's my card.
Les: Ok? And, uhh, you know, if you're interested, give me call. But, if there's anything else I can do, let me... I am Mr. Stonehaven. Everybody knows me around here, so, if you need me, call me. There's my card. All right? Hope to see you soon. Bye.
Les: See ya, mate. Let's go, Frank.
[Les and Frank leave]
Artyom: Ty khot' ponyala, chto oni sutenery i chego oni khotyat? (You do realize they're pimps, and what they want?)
[Needing money, Tanya has gone to see Les and Frank, the Internet pornographers]
Les: Ok, Tanya. Just give me a little twirl, just turn around. Yeah, and just un... unzip, and give me a flash. Mmmm... See, I see her as like a school girl, or... or maybe a nurse. She's sort of got that caring quality about her.
Frank: Bit skinny up top, Les.
Les: Or a nun.
Frank: A nun? Yeah, a nun would be good.
Tanya: But, what do I do?
