Record Producer Quotes:

  • [Dewey is singing a very bad version of "That's Amore"]

    Record Producer: Alright! Oh please, stop that! Stop your singing! Stop your singing this instant, young man! I will not have this in my studio! That's just a terrible, terrible, terrible... terrible "That's Amore."

    Dewey Cox: Um, maybe it was the wrong song choice. If you'd just let me play one of my songs that I wrote, I think you'd like it a whole lot better.

    Record Producer: You have failed conclusively! It's over! And there is nothing that you can do, here in this room... that can turn that around. Nothing you can do that can make up for what you just did to "That's Amore."

    Dewey Cox: [quietly] Well, my mother liked it a whole lot.

    Record Producer: Your mother was wrong!

  • Record Producer: [to L'Chaim] What the hell is this?

    L'Chaim: Pizza pie. What's in a pizza pie?

  • Record producer: Nice voice, toots. The thing is we already have someone just like you.

  • Record producer: I don't want to burst your bubble, but not only do we have someone like you. We are trying to get rid of the someone like you.

  • Dirk: Look, man, all we need is the tapes, all right?

    Record Producer: No, you don't get the tapes until you've paid.

    Dirk: In our situation, that doesn't make any fucking sense.

    Reed Rothchild: Look, we can not pay for the tapes, unless we take the tapes to the record company, and get paid.

    Dirk: Hello? Exactly.

    Record Producer: That's not an MP, that's a YP, your problem. Come up with the money, or forget it.

    Reed Rothchild: Okay, now you're talking above my head. I don't know all of this industry jargon, YP, MP. All I know is that I can't get a record contract, we cannot get a record contract unless we take those tapes to the record company. And granted, the tapes themselves are a uh um oh, you own them, all right, but the magic that is on those tapes. That fucking heart and soul that we put onto those tapes, that is ours and you don't own that. Now I need to take that magic and get it over the record company. And they're waiting for us, we were supposed to be there a half hour ago. We look like assholes, man.

    Dirk: Let me explain to him in simple arithmetic. One, two three! Because you don't fuckin' get it, Burt! You give us the tapes. We get the record contract. We come back and give you your fuckin' money. Have you heard the tapes? Have you even heard them? We're guaranteed a record deal. Our stuff is that good!

    Record Producer: Now I get it. Now I understand. You want it to happen... but it's not going to happen. Because it's a Catch-22.

    Dirk: What the fuck does that mean? What is a Catch-22, Burt?

    Record Producer: Catch-22, gentleman. Think about it.


    Dirk: You know what I'm thinking about, man? I'm thinking about kicking some fuckin' ass!

  • Record Producer: [In studio during take, interrupts] This wasn't so bad fellas, But if you could make it sound more modern, It'll be nice.

    Willy: Fucking hell! We do authentic! That's our style!
