Al Roberts: How far you goin'?
Vera: How far YOU goin'?
Al Roberts: [as narrator] That took me by surprise, and I turned around to look at her. She was facing straight ahead, so I couldn't see her eyes. She was young - not more than 24. Man, she looked like she had been thrown off the crummiest freight train in the world! Yet in spite of that, I got the impression of beauty, not the beauty of a movie actress, mind you, or the beauty you dream about with your wife, but a natural beauty, a beauty that's almost homely, because it's so real. And suddenly she turned to face me...
Vera: How far did ya say you were goin'?
Vera: Life's like a ball game. You gotta take a swing at whatever comes along before you find it's the ninth inning.

Vera: Well, now that you insist, how can I refuse? 100% will do!
Al Roberts: Fine! I'm relieved! I thought for a moment you were gonna take it all!
Vera: I don't wanna be a hog!
Vera: We're outta liquor, Roberts!

[Ford is trying to convince Vera to sleep with the Count for money]
Ford: I'm a mentor. I'm not a hustler. I'm a conduit, I'm a circuit. Listen... Listen to me very carefully. My whole mission on this planet right now in relation to you is to introduce you to yourself. You know that. You're a deeply sexual human being. You have major erotic power. The easiest thing, and the most selfish, would be to convince you to lend yourself to one person, even if that one person was myself. That would be suffocating to you, and ignoble of me. That's what a hustler would do, and I refuse to hustle. I'm looking to lead you down the path of Ovid and Sappho, D.H. Lawrence, Edna Saint Vincent Millay, to say nothing of the whole hip-hop revolution. It's the path of the Bible: "Seek and you shall find. Know thyself". You're so ready right now to open yourself to discover your capacity for multiple men; multiple in the sense of at least a few. Maybe not at the same time, but sequentially. And - I know I'm getting ahead of myself here and you might not want to hear this because you're at least a year away from being there - but at some point you gonna be ready to explore women. And enjoy them. They already desire you all the time; you're just oblivious to it. But that's down the road, let's stick to the present for now: all that I'm asking is that you meet the Count...
Vera: [interrupting him] Set it up.
Ford: [not believing his ears] Really?
Vera: [on her phone] Hi, mom? Um... not good, actually. Yeah, is... is dad there? Okay, I, um... I'm gonna come over and talk to you guys, okay? No... No, I'm gonna, um... I'm gonna take a shower and get myself together. I'd rather tell you when I get there, all right? Okay. I love you, too.
Vera: [sees Jason now wearing a goalie mask] Who are you?
[Jason points a speargun at her]
Vera: What are you doing?
[Jason is still pointing the speargun at her]
Vera: Hey, cut that out. That's not funny!
[Jason shoots Vera in her left eye with the speargun. She falls dead into the water. Jason casually drops the spent speargun to the ground and walks off]
Shelly: [accidentally knocks over the gang's motorcycles in Rick's car] Oh, shit.
Vera: "Oh, shit" is right! Let's get outta here!
Vera: Look, I'm gonna go outside for a few minutes and then when I get back in, we'll talk.
Shelly: Yeah, sure. We'll talk...
[under his breath]

Zé: He makes a fire!
Vera: Yeah, he makes a fire!
Phillip Winter: Mmm hmm...
[makes sound of frying eggs]
Zé: What's that?
Sofia: He makes something to eat. Yes, a steak!
Zé: A steak!
Phillip Winter: [pauses] Nnnehh... This cowboy is... vegetarian. Listen again.
Vera: I have an astronomical discovery for you. The man in the moon is a bitch.
Vera: He's defiled you already, hasn't he? That's why you're rushing this ridiculous marriage. You're carrying his child.
Vera: Mom, are you taking a bath?
Matty: No, a big black guy is giving me a massage...
Vera: [the Finns have just invated Petrozavodsk] Why did you came? Why didn't you let us live in peace?
