Taking Daddy's money, buying your dollies and your knick-knacks... and eatin' his fuckin' chicken, fattening up like a prize fuckin' heifer?

And I told Daisy to her face - what everybody knew and wouldn't say, and she killed herself. And I played the fucking villain, just like you wanted.

    Susanna: Why would I want that?

    Lisa: [takes a deep breath and looks away] Yeah.

  • Daisy: Which do you like better? Taking a dump alone or with Valerie watching?

    Susanna: Alone.

    Lisa: That is fucked up, Daisy.

  • Lisa: We are very rare and we are mostly men.

    Janet: Lisa thinks she's hot shit cause she's a sociopath.

    Lisa: No... But she's been playing that SHIT ALL MORNING!

  • Susanna: What happened to Polly?

    Lisa: What needs to happen? No one's ever gonna' kiss her, man. You know, they're building a new Disneyland in Florida. If I could have any job in the world, I'd be a professional Cinderella. You could be Snow White. And Polly could be Minnie Mouse. Everyone would hug her and kiss her and love her and no one would ever know what was in that big ol' head of hers, you know?

  • Lisa: Hey Torch.

    Polly: Hey Lisa.

    Lisa: Did you miss me?

    Polly: Not much.

    [Susanna has just showed Daisy some Colace tablets]

    Daisy: Put them on the bed and get out.

    Lisa: [from the door] Put your on the bed.

    Daisy: Oh, Jesus! Get out! GET OUT!

    Lisa: [she enters and shuts the door behind her] C'mon Daze, don't take advantage of her just 'cause she's new.

    Daisy: Get the fuck out or I'm calling Valerie! VALERIE!

    Lisa: Yeah, why don't you call Valerie, shall we? Let's call Valerie and ask her for some Colace just like Suzie Q's got in her fuckin' hand. Why does it STINK in here?

    Lisa: Oh, that's nothing. What else?

    Susanna: He didn't say. Thought it would affect my recovery.

  • Lisa: If talking did shit, we'd be out of here by now.

    Lisa: Yeah, she coughed up a big one.

    Susanna: But how could - I mean she's... *insane*.

    Lisa: Yeah, well that's what ther-rape-me's all about. That's why fuckin' Freud's picture's on every shrink's wall. He created a fuckin' industry. You lie down, you confess your secrets and you're saved. Ca-ching! The more you confess, the more they think about settin' you free.

    Susanna: But what if you don't have a secret?

    Lisa: Then you're a lifer, like me.

  • Lisa: So, have you had your first Melvin yet?

    Susanna: Who's that?

    Lisa: Bald guy with a little pecker and a fat wife. You're ther-rapist, sweet pea. Unless, ah... unless they're givin' you shocks. Or, God forbid lettin' you out. Then you get to see the great wonderful Dr. Dyke.

    Margie: She means Dr. Wick.

    Susanna: Oh, I've been in his office but I haven't met him yet.

    M.G.: He's a she. Dr. Wick's a girl.

    Lisa: That's right, M.G. Wick's a chick.

    M.G.: Wick's a chick.

    Lisa: Hence the nickname.

  • Lisa: [to Daisy] You're playing Betty Crocker and cut up like a goddamn Virginia ham.

    Marty: What?

    Lisa: Why do you let Bobby treat you like he does, hit you and stuff, and make fun of you? He disses you right to your face in front of everyone. Derek thinks you guys are queer for each other.

    Marty: Yeah well, Derek's an asshole.

    Lisa: You know what? I love you.

    Marty: Shut up.

    Lisa: I do. I love you and I care about you and I don't want to see you suffer. I don't want to see Bobby picking on you ever again.

    Marty: Bobby...

    [he chokes up and cries; saliva comes from his mouth]

    Lisa: What?

    Marty: It's been like this since we were little fucking kids, Lisa. He's always been like this. Bobby always beats the fuck out of me whenever he wants and there's not a goddamn thing I can do about it. I've begged my fucking parents to move...

    Lisa: You could move away yourself!

    Marty: I'm not even a fucking high school graduate.

    Lisa: Yeah, I know, tell me about it. So there's nothing we can do to stop him ever?

    Marty: We could kill him, but that's about it.

    Lisa: [smiles] That's what I was thinking.

    Marty: What? What are you talking about?

    Lisa: Bobby.

    Marty: What about Bobby?

    Lisa: [laughs] He's even too weird for Ali and she's into everything! He's the source of everybody's troubles, Marty. And even still, he's going to finish high school and go to college and probably get rich.

    Marty: Yeah, and I'm going to be delivering pizzas to him in Weston. How would we get a gun?

    Lisa: My ma has one.

    Marty: Shit! That motherfucker! He's fucking dissed me... he's fucking treated me like shit my whole goddamn life!

    Lisa: Let's kill him.

    Vinny Gambini: No. Because if you'd turned it off, it wouldn't drip!

    Lisa: Maybe it's broken.

    Vinny Gambini: Is that what you're saying? It's broken?

    Lisa: Yeah. That's it, it's broken.

    Vinny Gambini: You sure?

    Lisa: I'm positive.

    Vinny Gambini: Maybe you didn't twist it hard enough.

    Lisa: I twisted it just right.

    Vinny Gambini: How could you be so sure?

    Lisa: [sighs] If you will look in the manual, you will see that this particular model faucet requires a range of 10 to 16 foot-pounds of torque. I routinely twist the maximum allowable torquage.

    Vinny Gambini: Well, how could you be sure you used 16 foot-pounds of torque?

    Lisa: Because I used a Craftsman model 1019 Laboratory Edition Signature Series torque wrench. The kind used by Caltech high energy physicists. And NASA engineers.

    Vinny Gambini: Well, in that case, how can you be sure THAT's accurate?

    Lisa: Because a split second before the torque wrench was applied to the faucet handle, it had been calibrated by top members of the state AND federal Department of Weights and Measures... to be dead on balls accurate!

    [She rips a page out of a magazine and hands it to him]

    Lisa: Here's the certificate of validation.

    Vinny Gambini: Dead on balls accurate?

    Lisa: It's an industry term.

    Vinny Gambini: [tosses paper away] I guess the fucking thing is broken.

  • D.A. Jim Trotter: Ms. Vito, what is your current profession?

    Lisa: I'm an out-of-work hairdresser.

    D.A. Jim Trotter: An out-of-work hairdresser. In what way does that qualify you as an expert in automobiles?

    Lisa: It doesn't.

  • Lisa: [angry tone] What the fuck is going on here, Vinny? You fucking up this case or what?

    Vinny Gambini: I explained it to you already, didn't I? It's a procedure. I'm learning all this as I go along. I'm bound to fuck up a little.

    Lisa: A little? You've been thrown in jail twice!

  • Vinny Gambini: I got thirty fucking minutes to take a shower, get a new suit, get dressed and get to the fucking courthouse!

    Lisa: You fucking shower, I'll get your fucking suit!

    Vinny Gambini: You think? Uh, good choice. Two.

  • Lisa: Support? Is that what you want? I'm sorry, you were wonderful in there! The way you handled that judge... ooh you are a smooth talker. You are... you are!

  • Lisa: [talking to townsman] Famous for your mud? How's your Chinese food?

    Vinny Gambini: You just keep asking about Chinese food. You gotta let everybody know you're a tourist?

    Lisa: Yeah, well, what are you, a fucking world traveler?

  • Lisa: I want a wedding in church with bridesmaids and flowers.

    Vinny Gambini: Whoa. How many times did you say that spontaneous is romantic?

    Lisa: Hey, a burp is spontaneous. A burp is not romantic.

  • Lisa: Don't worry, I'll find a way to bail you out.

    Vinny Gambini: No don't. I'm gonna stay in prison tonight. Maybe I'll finally get some sleep. I'm doing good, huh?

  • Emma: Ring ring! It's the pumpkin patch. They want their pumpkins back!

  • Lisa: You know, there's going to be sex, drugs, rock-n-roll... chips, dips, chains, whips... You know, your basic high school orgy type of thing. I mean, uh, I'm not talking candlewax on the nipples, or witchcraft or anything like that, no, no, no. Just a couple of hundred kids running around in their underwear, acting like complete animals.

  • Lisa: Have you ever wondered how sad it is, that your son's only sexual outlet is tossing off to magazines in the bathroom?

    Lucy Wallace: Oh Garry! Oh my God!

    Gary Wallace: Ma, I never tossed off to anything!

    Lucy Wallace: You told me you were combing your hair!

    Lisa: [smiles] Oh yeah? Old girlfriend?

    Wyatt: She kicked him in the nuts.

    Gary Wallace: [annoyed] Will you shut the hell up?

    Wyatt: [sympathetically] Look Gary, it wasn't your fault. All you said was hello to her.

    Gary Wallace: [annoyed] Look Wyatt, shut up!

    [Wyatt puts up his hands defensively, indicating that he will shut up. He looks slightly hurt by Gary's treatment of him as he was only trying to help]

  • Lisa: You had to be big shots didn't you. You had to show off. When are you gonna learn that people will like you for who you are, not for what you can give them. Well, in your race for power and glory, you forgot one small detail.

    Wyatt: We forgot to hook up the doll.

    Lisa: You forgot to hook up the doll.

  • Lisa: You guys created me, I didn't come from anywhere. Before you started messing around with your computer, I didn't even exist. By the way, you did an excellent job. Thank you.

    Chet: [closes door and turns to everyone else] I'm not a moron, you know. I...

    Chet: [suddenly realizes] Was that my grandparents?

    Chet: [Lisa nods, Chet opens the door again] Are they dead?

    Lisa: Oh, no, they're just resting.

    Chet: What are they doing in here?

    Lisa: I put them in there. I didn't want to Garry and Wyatt to get into trouble. Quite frankly, they weren't having a very good time at the party.

    Chet: Not having a good time? Do you think they're having a good time being catatonic in a closet?

  • [Wyatt and Lisa are going downstairs. He looks very nervous and tense]

    Lisa: Wyatt, you're going to have a heart attack by the time you're forty if you don't learn to relax. Have you tried inversion boots?

  • Lisa: What are you so nervous about? Everything's cool.

    Gary Wallace: EVERYTHING'S COOL! Yeah yeah. My dad's gonna castrate me. And my mother almost had like cardiac arrest. My parents are not gonna let me in the house again and if they do I'm gonna be grounded till I'm about 45. But other than that everything's great. Everything's cool. In fact things can't get any better.

    Lisa: Why do you have to be such a wanker?

    Chet: Because I get off on it!

  • Joe Young: They want me to do a sequel.

    Lisa: A sequel, to "Death of a Salesman"? Doesn't he die at the end of the first?

    Joe Young: Yes, but he has a twin brother, and he wants revenge.

    Lisa: Revenge? But, doesn't he kill himself?

    Joe Young: No, no, that's what you were led to believe. He was killed by the C.I.A for selling smack... to Nazis...

    Lisa: Wow!

  • Lisa: I hope you're happy in the life you've chosen.

    Joe Young: Don't quote Dickens in my apartment!

  • Lisa: [to Maxxx] You pig, you're responsible for degrading all of those women.

    Clark: Equally degradable in pornographic films.

    Lisa: Men are always in a position of power.

    Rodgers: They're the ones who want the product so bad, they're the victims.

    Lisa: Well, it exploits men by exploiting women.

    Clark: Hence, it exploits people.

    Maxxx Orbison: [pissed off] SHUT UP!

    Clark: Yeah.

    Maxxx Orbison: I do what i do and i make a lot of money and i don't care what i do to people because they're all idiots.

    Clark: Yeah.

    Maxxx Orbison: Especially you Clark, you pig fucking hunk of shit!.

    Clark: Yeah.

  • Lisa: Excuse me, could you tell me what movie this is?

    Video Store Clerk: Oh. Sorry.

  • Lisa: How could you have sex with all of those women?

    Joe Young: I didn't it was a stunt cock

    Lisa: A stunt cock? So you aren't touching all of those women's breasts?

    Joe Young: Oh no they're all just special effects

    Lisa: really?

    Joe Young:

    Lisa: OWWWW!

    Joe Young: Oh, Lisa, I'm sorry! What were you trying to say?

    Lisa: Don't pull the tape off my mouth.

  • Lisa: Never drink to feel better; only drink to feel even better.

  • Lisa: So I was just wondering if there was one general thing that you've found over the years to be generally true in a general way that would help anyone in any situation?

    Psychiatrist: That's a great question, yes, I would say figure out what you want and learn how to ask for it.

    Lisa: OK. Those are both really hard.

  • Lisa: I don't know if I have what it takes for everybody's regular plan.

  • Lisa: Matty, what am I doing? I caught myself. Don't judge anybody else until you check yourself out that way you are lucky if it's your fault because then you can correct the situation. I'm nervous over something that is going on with me, and I ended up with an attractive guy who you would have to be an idiot to mistake for anything more than just a fun friendship, and... and, yes amazing sex, and then I give that guy a hard time for just being who he is. Totally my fault, I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

    Matty: Are you apologizing?

    Lisa: Yeah.

    Matty: If you are really apologizing, you may be my dream girl. I heard those footsteps and I'm like, right somebody nuts is coming back to be more nuts and now an apology, you might be my dream girl.

  • Lisa: When you're in something you got to give it everything you have or else what are you doing?

  • Lisa: OK, then this is what I need, if in the middle of the night I start crying, shaking or getting enormously upset I don't want you to ask me what's wrong, I just want you to ignore it. Is that OK with you?

    Matty: Actually that's my preference!

  • Matty: I screw up, that's why I wrote something out that I wanna... I wanna say to you. OK this will be good. Is it bad that I wrote it out?

    Lisa: Its unusual, it's not bad. Stop asking me things like that it's weird.

    Matty: Oh yeah sorry, I went nuts when you left, I broke a lamp!

    Lisa: OK, read me the thing.

    Matty: That was the thing!

  • Lisa: Did you ever wish you could delete everything you said as soon as you'd said it? Lately all I do is hear myself being so weak and whiny and needy that I wish I could delete every...

    George: I think the answer to that is to stop talking. Deny a voice to what's falling apart. No lip service. That's my advice to you.

  • Lisa: George, this is my boyfriend Matty.

    George: Nice to meet you.

    Matty: Who is he?

    Lisa: You didn't even say hello!

    Matty: Yeah, I think you ought to check with me before you invite some guy over, so I'm a little bit too pissed off to say hello!

  • Lisa: What sort of trouble are you in George?

    George: Ah, well ah... simply put... ah, I'm currently unemployed, my girlfriend recently broke up with me, er, I will soon run out of money and, er, I'm the target of a federal investigation.

    Lisa: Wow, you are a real chick magnet, aren't you.

  • George: [after they kiss] I just had a thought.

    Lisa: Hm?

    George: Did you come down here to tell me not to bother waiting?

    Lisa: No.

  • Lisa: George, I thought you were this silly guy. Now, it's like everything but you seems silly. Who knows what I'm saying here?

    George: I think I know what you're saying.

    Lisa: What?

    George: It's just a thought- I might not at all be...

    Lisa: What?

    George: You love me too.

    Mike: But, But--

    Lisa: I'm not gon' cry! I'm not! I spent too much time on this damn make-up!

    Mike: Lisa, calm down...

    Lisa: I am calm!

    Mike: So then why are you yellin'?

  • Lisa: He hits me.

    Victoria: When?

    Lisa: Often.

    Victoria: Well, you must stop doing what you're doing to make him angry.

    Lisa: What?

    Victoria: Women sometimes have to deal with things to be comfortable.

  • Lisa: I am not getting married today, I have been beaten every day since I got engaged, and I have made excuses for him over, and over, and over again. But it's time for me to live for Lisa.

    Tara: That's why you're travelling 5000 miles to see him.

    Lisa: It's not to see him. I'm here just like the rest of you, you know. See Ireland. Do shrooms.

    Tara: Tara, I've known you all my life and I've never even see you take an aspirin.

  • Lisa: [Lisa has just handed Alex a subpoena while he is in the men's room]

    Lisa: It really is good to see you, Mr. Jurel.

  • Alex Jurel: There's nothing worse than a female lawyer with a cause.

    Lisa: Except a male teacher without one.

  • Lisa: You took Tara into a SEWER?

    Winston: Yeah, only for a couple of seconds.

  • Nick: [trying to get Lisa out of her depressed mood] You've made some friends at your dorm, right?

    Lisa: Not really. Most of the people here have a peculiar idea of a good time.

    Nick: What do you mean?

    Lisa: They get drunk and piss off the balconies.

    Nick: What about the girls?

    Lisa: I'm talking about the girls.

    Nick: You're kidding me.

    Lisa: You think I'm kidding you? You think it's a joke to have to walk home on a clear night with an umbrella?

    Nina: [surprised]

    Lisa: I wouldn't have thought she was your type!

    Nina: Wha-, she WASN'T my type! I was nine! I had a crush on the world and his wife, when I was nine!

    Bobbi: [comes in] Me too!

    Nina: I gotta go. I can't do this just now, Lisa.

    Lisa: I thought you'd done a runner on me.

    Nina: Not yet. But I'm thinking about it.

    Lisa: Of course you are. That''s what you always do.

  • Nina: Let me get this straight: Dad used the restaurant as collateral for a bet?

    Kary: Not exactly.

    Lisa: He used half of it.

    Nina: Oh, that's alright then. Had me worried for a minute.

  • Nina: [about Sanjay] I just didn't love him.

    Lisa: No such thing.

    Nina: As love?

  • Lisa: So, who are we up against?

    Nina: Okay. 'The Bengal Tiger'.

    Lisa: Pussycat?

    Lisa: Oh yeah, it's in the bag.

  • Sanjay: It'll never happen, you know. The two of you. Not in that way.

    Lisa: What way, Sanjay?

    Sanjay: Come on, her mother will never allow it.

    Lisa: She won't run away again. You know why? Because this time she has someone to stay for.

    Sanjay: I won't be too sure about that. I mean, she'd not gonna risk it. She'd lose everything. You really think she wants to lose her family again, even for love? Chances for that are piss poor.

  • Lisa: [about the little temple] It's beautiful, isn't it? Beautiful monument to eternal love.

    Nina: You don't believe in love.

    Lisa: Your dad said some king spent 22 years building it for his queen.

    Nina: Dead queen. Hah. It's a monument of grief.

    Lisa: Same thing. If he was from Nashville, he'd have written a song about it.

  • Nina: [trying to chose between two bunches of herbs]

    Lisa: Green and green. Any differences?

    Nina: .

  • Nina: Go on. I need you to know the difference for when you taste mine.

    Lisa: [tastest the dish] Mh, it's delicious.

    Nina: It's terrible! They didn't marinate the meat long enough. The longer you marinate it, the more tender it becomes.

    Bobbi: [looks like he knows EXACTLY what is going on between the two girls]

    Nina: Taste... that.

    [feeds Lisa]

    Nina: Well?

    Lisa: That's better.

    Nina: What's better about it?

    Lisa: [constantly grinning] I don't know.

    Lisa: [chuckling] You sound like my doctor.

    Kary: [comes in] I thought that was meant to be me? What happened?

    Lisa: Oh, erm, got some Plutonium in the eye.

    Nina: [points at the table] Chilli.

    Kary: [very self-confident] Cold water. You need to wash it out.

    Nina: Is there an echo in here?

  • Kary: Oh, what the hell. There's something I need to tell you, mum. I'm married. Her name's Janice and I pure love her.

    [when Matt indicated to the bottle of pills she just took]

    Lisa: I haven't taken any of those pills. Did you see me take any of those pills? You've been sitting right in front of me. Are you sitting in front of me not even looking at me? Don't even pay any fucking attention to me.

Its topography and dynamics is the simplest on earth. An exercise of reductionism. The iceberg is the microcosm of the Antarctica. Its fragment torn loose from the continents both substance and symbol within it's ICE the burg contains record of all ICE terrains. As it moves away from the massive ICE it gradually disintegrates. Most burgs last less than two month in an open sea.

    Matthew: The blacks and reds. Okay. Well, I'll just go in the back and get them for you. That's where we keep them, in the back, so... I'll be right back.

    Luke: Uh, Matty. Maybe you'd like to ask the lady what size shoe she wears.

    Matthew: Right.

    Lisa: 8 1/2.

    Matthew: Like Fellini.

    Lisa: Right.

    Matthew: I mean his movie, not his shoe size. I don't know his shoe size, obviously.

    Matthew: 8 1/2.

    Matthew: [Matthew rushes into the back of the shoe store] Shit.

    Luke: What was that?

    Matthew: Fellini! What the hell was I thinking.

    Luke: I have no idea. But you were right about one thing. God, she is beautiful. And you, my man, are an idiot. All right, look. Here's the thing, all right? You've obviously blown it, she obviously hates you. So you stay right here and let the man take a shot.

    Matthew: Shut up. Give me the shoes.

    Luke: All right. Go. Just remember... you're not funny.

    Matthew: [Matthew gathers himself in deep breaths and walks back to Lisa] Here we go. Black and red.

    Matthew: What do you think?

    Lisa: They're too big.

  • [Lisa confronts Matthew about spying on her in the shoe store]

    Lisa: Do you normally spy on people?

    Matthew: What?

    Lisa: Are you really gonna tell me that you're a huge fan of modern dance?

    Matthew: Look, I've never done anything like that before. Honestly, could you let me take you out for a cup of coffee and explain.

    Lisa: [chuckles] I don't think so.

    Matthew: I'll stay on my side of the table. I promise.

    Lisa: Just call me when the shoes come in, okay?

    Matthew: Listen, I'm not what you think I am, okay?

    [Lisa smiles at Matthew on her way out the front door]

    Matthew: Shit.

  • [Matthew and Lisa talk while strolling the snowy sidewalk of their first date]

    Matthew: I wish I was in California right now.

    Lisa: So, why did you want to become a photographer.

    Matthew: Fish.

    Lisa: Fish.

    Matthew: Tropical fish, actually. When I was a kid, I use to go to the library and pick out all the books with tropical fish, you know. Beautiful colors and shapes. When I was 8 years old, I realized someone had to take pictures of the fish, I wanted that to be me. But I grew up and then I realized that things don't have to be extraordinary to be beautiful. The ordinary could be just as beautiful.

    Lisa: Like what?

    Matthew: Well... Like, you see the couple there? Look at the way the girl is holding on to him so tight. But he can still drink his coffee, you know. It looks like she feels safe wrapping around him. And if you believe that, I'll tell you another one.


    Lisa: Take my picture. I feel beautiful tonight.

    [laughs, the two hold hands and continue to stroll]

    Lisa: [We see Matthew drive Lisa back to her apartment building to drop her off, the two kiss]

    Lisa: Bye.

    [Matthew is too nervous to say it back]

    Matthew: [Lisa waves at him in his car from the steps] Bye.

    [Matthew drives forward, slams his breaks, and drives in reverse slamming on his breaks]

    Lisa: [Lisa holds up a book] Here.

    Alex: Shakespeare.

    Lisa: [Lisa continues to hold the book up to Alex and the camera] This is your big break.

    Alex: That's Shakespeare. I can't do that. That's too hard.

    Lisa: [Lisa begins to quote Shakespeare at the camera] Haply, when I shall wed. That lord whose hand must take my plight shall carry half my love with him, half my care and duty. Surely I shall never marry like my sisters to love my father all.

    [Alex begins to grows jealous of Lisa's natural acting ability]

    Lisa: So true, my lord. In life... Ah! I blew it. I'm sorry. That was bad.

    Alex: No, that was amazing.

    Lisa: [Lisa tells Alex through the camera] You know, the thing with acting is, Alex, you just have to commit. Otherwise, you're just a phony.

  • [Lisa calls Luke's phone number that Matthew left with the bartender for her]

    Luke: Hello?

    Lisa: Hi, ummm... may I speak to Matthew, please?

    Luke: Who is this?

    Lisa: Um, this is Lisa? I'm a friend of his. I'm calling about my compact. I think he might have found it.

    Luke: Uh, which Lisa is this?

    Lisa: Pardon me?

    Luke: [Luke grabs his head at how dumb of a question that sounded] Uh, I'll tell you what. He's actually supposed to be here in a couple of minutes.

    Matthew: [At the same time, the camera goes to Alex calling Matthew so that he doesn't leave to go to Luke's home] Hello?

    Alex: Hello!

    Matthew: Hi.

    Alex: Hi. I'm sorry I didn't come back. My, um... Double shift turned into a triple, and I just couldn't get away.

    Matthew: It's okay. Don't worry about it.

    Alex: Are you mad?

    Matthew: No. Not at all. I had a great time. Where are you?

    Alex: Well, I'm still at work but, um, I'm just leaving now, so why don't you wait?

    Matthew: Yeah, I'll wait.

    Alex: Okay, great. I'll see you soon.

    [Matthew hangs up knowing something is strangely wrong]

    Luke: [the camera goes back to Luke and Lisa on the phone] Let me, uh... Let me grab your phone number, and I will have him call you when he gets in.

    Lisa: Um, you know, actually, could you just tell him to meet me at 3:00? He'd know where. Um, I'll be waiting for him.

    Luke: 3:00. Okay.

    [someone knocks at Luke's front door]

    Luke: You know what, it can't be him already, but I'm expecting him. And someone's at my front door, so maybe it is him. So hold on one second.

    [Lisa has a flashback of the last time she saw Matthew and when he asked her to move in with him]

    Luke: Yeah, I'm sorry. It wasn't him, it was someone else. But I promise I will give him your message. Okay?

    Lisa: Oh. Okay. Thank you.

    [Lisa hangs up praying with tears in her eyes that she hasn't lost Matthew entirely]

  • [Alex finally tells Matthew the truth]

    Matthew: You knew she was here the whole time?

    Alex: [Alex reaches into her bag and grabs the envelop she was suppose to give to Matthew two years earlier] This belongs to you. It's from her.

    Lisa: [Lisa's words in the letter] Matt, please don't think that I'm running away from you. I was so overwhelmed when you asked me to move in, I couldn't speak. My answer, of course, is yes. I love you, and can't wait to come home.

    Alex: [Alex in tears] I'm not going to apologize for what I've done. This is for me to live with now. Now you see me for who I am.

    Matthew: Yes, I do.

    Harry Cox: What's a dirty weekend? What is that, a Brit expression?

    Nino Barlini: Leaving? For how long?

    Nino Barlini: In the first place, diving is a great bore.

    Lisa: How do you know? Have you ever done it?

    Nino Barlini: Some things one can tell without doing them that they will be a great bore and the underwater is for fish not for people.

    Nino Barlini: In the second place, they are not relics at all.

    Nino Barlini: I have on authority from a close friend that things are manufactured and then dumped into the water to be found by foolish American boy tourists and the girl who are foolish enough to go with them.

    Lisa: This is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

    Nino Barlini: I have on authority from a close friend

    Lisa: Do you want me to stay?

    Nino Barlini: You are old enough to make your own decisions.

    Lisa: Then I'm going, all right?

  • Lisa: [Curt smells Lisa's sweater that she left behind not noticing that she came back] How's it smell?

    Curt Martin: Like You?

    Lisa: [Lisa takes the sweater and smells it too] I wouldn't know, can't smell myself. Thank you!

  • Lisa: Hi.

    Curt Martin: Hi.

    Lisa: What's your name?

    Curt Martin: Curt.

    Lisa: Hi Curt, I'm Lisa.

    Curt Martin: Hi.

    Lisa: Hi. Listen Curt, I think it's the best policy to be totally honest with people, you know. I think that's the best way to go, don't you?

    Curt Martin: That sounds good.

    Lisa: yeah, well Curt, your fly's open. Thought maybe you'd wanna know.

    Curt Martin: Why were you looking there?

    Lisa: That's a good question. sorry.


    Curt Martin: Would you like to go out a get a cup of coffee with me?

  • Ronnie Heflin: I want to make a toast. To my little queen... No matter what happens. Cheer?

    Bobby: Cheers.

    [as they all toast]

    Lisa: [turns to look at Crissy and then back] If that bitch wins... I'll hurl!

    Donna: Ok, I'm sorry. Would you just explain to me, why do you care? What do you get? A bouquet of roses and a tacky tiara you can only wear to proms?

    Lisa: It's not about what you get. It's like, it's about the honor, you know. It's about the respect of my peers.

    Bobby: [laughing with everyone] Are you serious?

    Donna: That's the geekiest thing you've ever said.

    Lisa: [beat] Ok, 'guess it was a little geeky. But seriously. I just want Crissy to know that she can't buy everything and think about the reunions to come. I win, it'll eat away at her until the day she dies.

  • Ms. Waters: Lisa! Wow! That is so...

    Crissy Lynn: [off screen] Inappropriate.

    Lisa: Crissy! Wow, your dress is so simple. It's so you.

    Donna: [walking up the steps] Crissy, come one. This is prom, Let's just all be nice and forget the past.

    Crissy Lynn: [walks down a few steps, to Lisa] As fellow prom queen nominee, I want to wish you luck tonight. You're gonna need all you can get.

    Lisa: [intimidated] You think you got it all wrapped up, do you?

    Crissy Lynn: [snearing] Well, they're certainly not propped up and on parade like yours are. That's for sure.

  • Businessman #1: [in the elevator] So, which one of you lovely ladies is my date tonight?

    Businessman #2: [as the girls are laughing] So, we're gonna take this party upstairs ladies. Room 604.

    Lisa: Yeah. We'll be right up.

    Donna: [still laughing] Lisa!

  • Lisa: What color is your dress?

    Donna: It's a champagne color. Then it's a little sexy.

  • Lisa: It doesn't surprise me that there's another woman. Of course, the fact that she's dead gives one pause.

  • Lisa: So, she's six weeks pregnant. That means the baby's due in... April, May... June. Gemini. That's cool. Einstein was a Gemini. So's that Scottish gal from Garbage.

    Tom Witzky: Will you go help Jake with his pajamas?

    Lisa: If she's late...

    Tom Witzky: Lisa, I swear to God, start with the Dionne Warwick stuff and I'll throw you out of the fuckin' window, so please help him with the pajamas.

    Lisa: Love you, too, Tom.

  • Lisa: Animal.

    Tom Witzky: What'd I do this time?

    Lisa: Should I tell him?

    Maggie Witzky: If you wanna die!

    Lisa: Well, your beer-addled sperm still works.

    Maggie Witzky: LISA?

    Lisa: You impregnated my sister again.

    Maggie Witzky: BITCH!

    Lisa: I thought you wanted me to tell him.

    Maggie Witzky: Why, because I said don't?

  • Lisa: There's only eight percent of the population that's, like, highly hypnotizable. I mean, almost anybody can go under a little, but not way under. Not freaky under. Like he did.

  • Lisa: They should make heroin look like something else. Candy bars maybe.

  • [first lines]

    Lisa: Come on Louis, come on!

  • The Old Man: Be careful, Lisa.

    Lisa: You too, Louis.

  • Carol: Lisa, you haven't even touched your meatloaf.

    Lisa: Meat is murder.

  • Lisa: It's like mom's pancakes. Every morning she makes them for breakfast. And you're always trying to fix the car, which for some mysterious reason has always stopped running. Then Mac & Cheese for lunch. Then we have meatloaf for dinner. Every night. At 8:00 we watch Murder She Wrote. We go to bed, wake up tomorrow, and do exact same thing.

    Bruce: Well you have school tomorrow, and I have work, so...

    Lisa: There is no school. There is no work.

    Carol: Then what about your birthday, that's not tomorrow either?

    Lisa: No. It never comes. It's always the day before I turn 16. It's pretty frustrating.

  • [last lines]

    Lisa: What's out there?

    Bruce: Whatever you want there to be.

  • Jenny: It almost got Lisa.

    Lisa: No, it wanted Deputy Wargle first; it wants men like him most of all.

    Jenny: What do you mean, it wants men like him?

    Lisa: Well, it's the devil, don't you think? Come up from hell tonight? I think he wants to dance with us.

  • Lisa: See? L.A. is good for something.

  • Lisa: Help! I just woke up in a tub of ice, and-!

    911 Operator: Don't tell me; Your kidney's gone...

    Lisa: Yes!

    911 Operator: Listen, honey! I've got Princess Di on line 4. I gotta go!

  • [Travis watches Lisa down her second cocktail]

    Lisa: Come on. Drink up.

    Travis: Don't you have a plane to catch?

    Lisa: Wasted is the only way to fly.

  • Max: I have been saddled with Rose since Mom and Dad died. Not you, me. She is not your problem!

    Lisa: What is wrong with you?

    Max: Not a goddamn thing, that's what. I'm young, healthy. I got all the time in the world since I was just fired. Yeah, what, are you surprised? Surprised that I couldn't manage a full-time job while raising a chronically sick 8-year-old?

    Lisa: You should have said something.

    Max: Gee, I wish I had. Oh, wait, I did, but you were too busy fucking Andy all over the goddamn building to listen to me.

    Lisa: Max, please, can we just all go? I mean, if we don't have to be here.

    Max: We're not going anywhere, sis. But you, maybe it's time you go.

  • Sullivan: Are there any other boys living in this building?

    Lisa: No, Jake was it... Why?

  • Rose: [holding up a Mr. Potato Head toy] Do boys like Mr. Potato Head?

    Lisa: [laughing] I guess.

  • Ricky: [looking under the hood of Tom and Lisa's car] Hey, Alex I found it. The alternator wire's loose.

    Alex: [sarcastic] Wonderful, Ricky. Wonderful!

    Ricky: I'll have it fixed in a minute.

    Alex: Take your time. Take your time.

    Ricky: Why?

    Alex: [serious tone] Why not? It's too late to go boogying anyway.

    Ricky: Too late? No, come on. What are we going to do? The night's still young.

    Alex: Well... I hear there's a party. You up for a party?

    Lisa: I told you, it's not a party.

    Alex: Well, when we get there, we'll make it one.

    Lisa: You want me to dance with you at the party?

    Alex: Oh... you'll dance all right.

  • Lisa: I've never been to confession, and for curious people, who have a knife in their hand, I feel only pitty!

  • Lisa: I've never been through this part of the city.

    Tom: A shortcut. We just have to cross the GW Bridge and it's about three minutes to Exit 9.

    Lisa: Will Gloria, Howard and Glenda be there already?

    Tom: So I assume. Howard said that they were leaving early so I gave him the key.

    Lisa: So they can spend more time being bored.

    Tom: I can see it now. Glenda will start sighing, so Gloria and Howard will run upstairs and start screwing!

    Lisa: Exactly!

  • [last lines]

    Lisa: At one point there I though we'd never make it.

    Tom: Yeah, me too. The gun was harder to get at then I thought. It's like he had eyes in the back of his head.

    Lisa: What matters is that it's all over.

    Tom: But at what price? But then again... you found it exiting and real high, didn't you?

    [Lisa leans towards Tom and gives him a firm but ambiguous look; Tom picks up a phone and dials a number]

    Tom: [into the phone] Hello? Police?

  • Lisa: Monica, I need to pee.

    Monica: Just hold it in.

    Lisa: I have been waiting for over an hour.

  • Lisa: I hear you bought yourself a haunted house.

    John Baxter: I just bought the house, not the ghost.

  • Lisa: Ron DeFeo. Murdered his mother... and his father... and his four brothers and sisters in this house. God. The master bedroom. This is where he began. And then right here. He fired two more shots. The sound muffled by the crash of thunder outside. And then he went upstairs, to the children's room...

  • [Susan and Lisa are terrified by the sound of footsteps from above]

    John Baxter: [appears from above] Hi.

    Susan Baxter: Oh. Oh daddy, you scared us.

    Lisa: [obviously relieved] Not me.

  • Jeff: [with makeshift Ouija] I got a good question! Can it tell us what color panties Lisa's wearing?

    Roger: Come on, Jeff... everybody knows that!

    Lisa: [sarcastic laugh] Up yours, darling.

    Jeff: Alright! Wait, wait. I got it. I got a great question. It's great! Alright, is... anyone in this room... going to be dead before next year...

    Susan Baxter: No! No. Don't ask questions like that.

  • Lisa: You guys! You guys, Susan is right. No more stupid questions, okay. You're ruining everything. Now you just ask the spirit who it is and what it wants!

    Lisa: [after everyone returns their fingers to the glass] Is there anyone in this room who is really in danger.

    Susan Baxter: That's not what you said.

  • Lisa: [after the glass slides away by itself and smashes] Susan, what are you doing throwing the glass against the wall like that...

  • Lisa: [On the letters framed on Colt's wall] God, you blast them all: blacks, Jews, Mexicans...

  • Lisa: Mom, Dad, the drugs are more important than you!

  • Lisa: Shut up and take off your pants.

  • Lisa: [possessed] Don't break my balls, priest!

  • Lisa: [possessed] Take your shitty hands off me!

  • Father Michael: Where did you come from?

    Lisa: [possessed] From a cunt.

  • Kelly: Are you coming to the party?

    Paul: Of course we're coming to the party.

    Kelly: Then just head back that way, it's a left, and a right...

    Lisa: Follow us, if you think you can keep up.

  • Monique: Once I started doing it, it's like I couldn't get enough. I had to do it all the time.

    Lisa: You fucked around, didn't you?

  • Lauf: My name is Lauf, criminal investigation department. That man, is he an acquaintance of yours?

    Lisa: A lover.

    Lauf: A good one?

    Lisa: Sometimes.

  • Lisa: What is it that you want Jade?

    Jade Li: To win the Academy Award.

    Lisa: And I get invited to the ceremony?

    Jade Li: Of course. You know, I'd get nominated for a really dramatic part. Something really hard and real. I don't know, something that I had to, like, gain weight for. Something.

  • Lisa: Bring your ray gun?

  • [last lines]

    Skif: Will you be with me?

    Lisa: Such simple words. Couldn't you have said them before?

    Skif: Will you be with me?

    Lisa: Can you see anyone else around?

  • Lisa: [taking a wine glass from Camille's silver platter and glancing individually from Rick to Annabel to Will and finally Camille as she seats herself] Let me see if I got this straight. The drug-dealing erotic with the double life. The self-conscious follower. The abusive, womanizing, sociopath. And finally, the gold digging social climber

    [presents a fake smile to the group seated apart from Will taken aback at her comments]

  • Will LaSalle: [In response to Lisa's analysis of the group] Very Cute.

    Lisa: Well I've been around you know. I have seen all the skeletons in your closets. Probably even the ones you hide from each other.

    Camille: [sternly as she looks up] Okay that's enough.

  • Jeff: Why would a man leave his apartment three times on a rainy night with a suitcase and come back three times?

    Lisa: He likes the way his wife welcomes him home.

  • Lisa: I wish I were creative.

    Jeff: You are. You're great at creating difficult situations.

  • Lisa: What's he doing? Cleaning house?

    Jeff: He's washing and scrubbing down the bathroom walls.

    Stella: Must've splattered a lot.

    [both Jeff and Lisa look at Stella with disgust]

    Stella: Come on, that's what were all thinkin'. He killed her in there, now he has to clean up those stains before he leaves.

    Lisa: Stella... your choice of words!

    Stella: Nobody ever invented a polite word for a killin' yet.

  • Jeff: When am I going to see you again?

    Lisa: [angry] Not for a long time...


    Lisa: at least not until tomorrow night.

  • Lisa: The last thing Mrs. Thorwald would leave behind would be her wedding ring. Stella, do you ever leave yours at home?

    Stella: The only way somebody would get that would be to chop off my - finger. Let's go down to the garden and find out what's buried there.

    Lisa: Why not? I always wanted to meet Mrs. Thorwald.

  • Lisa: Today's a very special day.

    Jeff: It's just another run-of-the-mill Wednesday. The calendar's full of 'em.

  • Lisa: What's a logical explanation for a woman taking a trip with no luggage?

    Jeff: That she didn't know she was going on a trip and where she was going she wouldn't need any luggage.

    Lisa: Exactly.

  • Lt. Doyle: How do you do?

    Lisa: We think Thorwald's guilty.

  • Lisa: I'm not much on rear window ethics.

  • Lisa: How's your leg?

    Jeff: Hurts a little.

    Lisa: Your stomach?

    Jeff: Empty as a football.

    Lisa: And your love life?

    Jeff: Not too active.

    Lisa: Anything else bothering you?

    Jeff: Uh-huh, who are you?

  • Lisa: Tell me exactly what you saw and what you think it means.

  • Jeff: She's like a queen bee with her pick of the drones.

    Lisa: I'd say she's doing a woman's hardest job: juggling wolves.

  • Jeff: Those two yellow zinnias at the end, they're shorter now. Now since when do flowers grow shorter over the course of two weeks? Something's buried there.

    Lisa: Mrs. Thorwald!

    Stella: You haven't spent much time around cemeteries, have you? Mr. Thorwald could hardly bury his wife's body in plot of ground about one foot square. Unless he put her in standing on end, in which case he wouldn't need the knives and saw.

  • Lisa: Where does a man get inspiration to write a song like that?

    Jeff: He gets it from the landlady once a month.

  • Lisa: You can't ignore the wife dissapearing, and the trunk, and the jewelery.

    Lt. Doyle: I checked the railroad station. Yesterday at 6:20 am, he bought a ticket. Ten minutes later, he put his wife on a train. Destination: Meritsville. I asure you, the witnesses are that deep.

    Lisa: That might have been a woman, but it couldn't have been Mrs. Thorwald. That jewelery...

    Lt. Doyle: Look, Miss Fremont, that feminine intuition stuff sells magazines, but in real life it's still a fairy tale. I don't know how many times I chased down leads based on women's intuition.

  • Lisa: Jeff, you know if someone came in here, they wouldn't believe what they'd see? You and me with long faces plunged into despair because we find out a man didn't kill his wife. We're two of the most frightening ghouls I've ever known.

  • [describing a dress]

    Lisa: A steal at $1,100.

    Jeff: Eleven hundred? They ought to list that dress on the stock exchange.

  • Lisa: A woman never goes anywhere but the hospital without packing makeup, clothes, and jewelry.

  • Lisa: Why would Thorwald want to kill a little dog? Because it knew too much?

  • Lisa: Well, if there's one thing I know, it's how to wear the proper clothes.

  • Lisa: Did Lt. Doyle think I stole this purse?

    Jeff: No, Lisa, I don't think he did.

  • Jeff: I've seen bickering and family quarrels and mysterious trips at night, and knives and saws and ropes, and now since last evening, not a sign of the wife. How do you explain that?

    Lisa: Maybe she died.

    Jeff: Where's the doctor? Where's the undertaker?

  • Lisa: A murderer would never parade his crime in front of an open window.

  • Lisa: Oh I love funny exiting lines.

  • Lisa: According to you, people should be born, live, and die in the same place.

  • Lt. Doyle: What do you say we all sit down and have a nice friendly drink too, hmm? Forget all about this. We can tell lies about the good old days during the war.

    Lisa: So that's it? You're through with the case?

    Lt. Doyle: There is no case to be solved. There never was.

  • Jeff: All right, Doyle. I take it that you didn't find the trunk. And all of this is just some speech you made up one night at a policeman's ball!

    Lt. Doyle: I found the trunk, a half-an-hour after I left here this morning. It was at Grand Central Station.

    Lisa: I suppose it's necessary for a man to tie up a trunk with heavy rope?

    Lt. Doyle: If the lock is broken, yes.

    Jeff: And what did you find inside the trunk? Surely no tomato paste to me?

    Lt. Doyle: Mrs. Thorwald's clothes. Clean, well-packed, not stylish, but presentable.

    Lisa: Didn't you take them to the police crime lab to have them examined?

    Lt. Doyle: I re-packed them and sent them on their merry and legal way.

    Jeff: Why would a woman who is going away for a short trip does she take everything that she owns?

    Lt. Doyle: [glares at Lisa] Let's let the female psychologist answer that.

    Lisa: It's looks to me like she is never comming back.

    Lt. Doyle: Now, that is known as a private family quarell.

    Jeff: All right, but if she was never comming back, why didn't he tell his landlord that? I'll tell you why Thorwald never told his landlord that his wife was never comming back. It's because he was hiding something in the apartment... or he still is.

    Lt. Doyle: [stares at Lisa's overnight bag nearby] Do you tell your landlord everything?

    Jeff: [embarassed] Uh... I told you to be careful, Tom.

  • Lt. Doyle: Lars Thorwald... is no more a murderer than I am.

    Jeff: [stunned] You mean that you can explain everything strange that has been going on over there, and is still going on?

    Lt. Doyle: No, and neither can you. That's a secret private world your looking into out there. People do a lot of things in private they couldn't possibly explain in public.

    Lisa: Like killing their wives?

    Lt. Doyle: Get that idea out of your head. It will only lead you in the wrong direction.

  • Lt. Doyle: Oh, Jeff, if you need any more help, consult the yellow pages in your telephone directory.

    Lisa: Oh, I love funny exit lines.
