And the rest of us are going to be hauled under with the raft. So I'm not going to pretend that I give a shit about you and your stupid friend and your pathetic small time nothing life! But I've got everything I care about in this world in this boat, and I've got my baby girl waiting at the other end, and I know I cannot do this. I cannot row this big water man, that's the truth. I cannot do it!
Wade: You're an amazing woman.
Mr. Dial: Nobody steals a whale.
Wade: But I'm telling you the whale is gone, the trailer is out of there, the forklift has been moved. That big mouth trainer and Indian must've done it.

Wade: I'm offering leadership. What are you offering, besides throwing hot pots of coffee at people, or writing a stupid book no one wants to read about some guy who wants to fuck a boat?

Wade: He wants to fuck the boat, and you know it.

Clint: Well, shit...
Wade: With their little baby teeth, their big teeth haven't even come in yet.
Clint: You know what, you carry on with your symphony of death. I'll sneak around the school where there aren't any kids.
Wade: Oh, you sneak around, huh? Sneak around like a little hobbit. No way, I'm taking the fight to them like a fucking orc. And that is the difference between you and me. I don't wanna scurry. I don't wanna scurry around the hallway like a common squirrel.
Wade: What's the matter with you? Ain't you gonna talk to me? Did it go all right?
Sueleen Gay: Oh, Wade.
Sueleen Gay: I had to do me a striptease tonight in front of all those men... in order to get to sing at the Parthenon with Barbara Jean.
Wade: Oh, shit, Sueleen, I... That's dreadful! That's terrible, girl! I mean... I don't know how to tell you this, but I been meanin' to... you can't sing. You may as well face the fact you cannot sing. You ain't never gon' be no star. I wish you'd give it up. They gon' kill ya. They gon' tear your heart out if you keep on. They gon' walk on your soul, girl.
Sueleen Gay: What are you talkin' about?

Wade: I am leavin' for Detroit Wednesday.

Wade: We're gonna make a lot of fucking money.
Richie: Yeah, okay? So, listen to me: relax.

Amanda: For the record, you will never drink my piss.
Wade: That's what you think.
Richie: [after hearing about Jason, to Wade] I get it, though, dude. You do what you gotta do to survive, you know? If we were all out here starving to death and you were... and you were dead, I'd eat your leg.
Amanda: That's really sweet.
Richie: Thank you.
Wade: Why would you eat my leg, man? I can teach you how to fish; just go fishing.

Carly Jones: This Vincent guy is quite the artist.
Wade: Yeah. I think this Vincent guy needs therapy.
Wade: [to a dog he thinks is made of wax] What up, dog?

Nick Jones: [holds up hand] Yeah, it's a real tragedy, ain't it?
Wade: Yeah... it is.
[seeing all the fan belts]
Wade: He has everything but a 15 inch fan belt. Where is he anyway? He said he'd be 30 minutes, its been almost 45.

Carly Jones: NICK!
Carly Jones: Oh, my...
Dalton Chapman: [yelling at the man in the truck] WHAT?
[Wade starts up his car. It rumbles badly for a second and then cuts out]
Wade: [looking under hood] What the hell?
[sees broken fan belt]
Wade: I just bought this fan belt. It's brand new.
[throwing it on the ground]
Wade: Someone has got to be fucking with me!
Carly Jones: [approaching the door to the wax museum] Doesn't 'closed' mean 'I don't want you in here?'
Wade: Relax. No one'll care
Carly Jones: What if's someone's here?
Wade: [calling out] Hello? Anyone in here?
Wade: See? Fine. Look how cool this is. Everything in here is wax, the floors, the walls, look at this!
[gestures to a large ornament]
Wade: This is wax
Carly Jones: [sarcastic] Yeah, cool, awesome.
Wade: Who are these people supposed to be? Aren't there supposed to be famous people in a wax museum? I don't recognize this guy.

Brady: Yeah, well, money talks and bullshit walks. You know what I mean?
Ricky: Between me and you, I've always wondered what all the fuss is about. What makes him so crazy about you?
Wade: Well, between me and you, I've always wondered what the fuss was about you. How come nobody ever turns you down? Not even Arturo.
Noah: So we release them, and then?
Brandon: They fly away?
Wade: This time of year, wouldn't they just freeze to death?
Ricky: The perfect metaphor for the joys of marriage.
Brandon: But what about the whole top-bottom thing? Isn't that kind of limiting? Kind of like a parody of heterosexual relationships?
Wade: What do you mean?
Brandon: Because, like I'm versatile, right? So, do you ever want Mr. Nicholson to fuck you?
Wade: Who says he doesn't already?
Brandon: Are you sure you're going to be okay, Mr. Robinson?
Wade: Yeah, I'm okay. Sorry guys, I didn't think I had that much to drink.
Eddie: It's not a real bachelor party unless someone blows chunks.
Noah: I'm sorry.
Wade: I'm sorry too. You know nothing happened, just a drunken kiss.
Noah: Same with Baby Gat... minus the kiss.
Wade: When I first saw you, it wasn't love at first sight. You were intriguing, fascinating, remarkable, but you were a man. When I first started to feel things for you, I didn't know what those things were, because you were a man. When I first told you I loved you, trembling inside, so full of fear that I could hardly breathe, I could see the hesitation in your eyes. I could feel your fear. And when... words are just words,
[crumples up notes]
Wade: and talk is cheap. I asked you to marry me, because marriage is a deed. I asked you to marry me here in my family's home, to prove to you that I have no shame. To place our names together, in front of the whole world, so that the whole world can bend for us and for our love. And in front of your friends, who I will learn to love, because you love them, and because they love you. All this I did for you, and all this I'll do for us. I'll be courageous, forbearing. I'll be loving, I'll be kind, I will take all that trembles inside you, and place it safely in the palm of my hand. Forever.
