    [Wally laughs and drags the corpse off-screen]

    Andre: No, It would be like asking your friend to drop his role.

  • Wally: I've lived in this city all my life. I grew up on the Upper East Side. And when I was ten years old, I was rich, I was an aristocrat. Riding around in taxis, surrounded by comfort, and all I thought about was art and music. Now, I'm 36, and all I think about is money.

  • [Upon entering the restaurant]

    Wally: I was beginning to realize that the only way to make this evening bearable, would be to ask Andre a few questions. Asking questions always relaxes me.

Even if they are in absolute agony, I always find it very interesting.

  • Andre: What does it do to us, Wally, living in an environment where something as massive as the seasons or winter or cold, don't in any way affect us? I mean, were animals after all. I mean... what does that mean? I think that means that instead of living under the sun and the moon and the sky and the stars, we're living in a fantasy world of our own making.

    Wally: Yeah, but I mean, I would never give up my electric blanket, Andre. I mean, because New York is cold in the winter. I mean, our apartment is cold! It's a difficult environment. I mean, our life is tough enough as it is. I'm not looking for ways to get rid of a few things that provide relief and comfort. I mean, on the contrary, I'm looking for more comfort because the world is very abrasive. I mean, I'm trying to protect myself because, really, there's these abrasive beatings to be avoided everywhere you look!

    Andre: But, Wally, don't you see that comfort can be dangerous? I mean, you like to be comfortable and I like to be comfortable too, but comfort can lull you into a dangerous tranquility.

  • [last lines]

    Wally: [going home in a taxicab] I treated myself to a taxi. I rode home through the city streets. There wasn't a street, there wasn't a building, that wasn't connected to some memory in my mind. There, I was buying a suit with my father. There, I was having an ice cream soda after school. And when I finally came in, Debbie was home from work, and I told her everything about my dinner with Andre.

  • Andre: Our minds are just focused on these goals and plans, which in themselves are not reality.

  • [first lines]

    Wally: The life of a playwright is tough. It's not easy as some people seem to think. You work hard writing plays and nobody puts them on. You take up other lines of work to try to make a living.

    Bill Pardy: Oh, that reminds me. There's something I wanted to tell you.

    Wally: What's that?

    Bill Pardy: Fuck you, fatass.

  • Wally: Like finding a needle in a fuck-stack.

  • Bill Pardy: [Looking at the disemboweled dog] I reckon Grant ain't got one of them puppy calendars on his desk. Just don't strike me as a real dog lover is all.

    Trevor: Hey!

    [holds up the decapitated head of a dog]

    Trevor: Look. Knocked this one's head clear on over here.

    Wally: Put that down, numbnuts!

  • Wally: [Upon checkin at the cabin, the Ripleys are greeted by a snarling, barking dog whose face is filled with porcupine quills] Don't mind Wormer folks, she hates people.

    Buck Ripley: What happened to that dog's, uh, dog's face?

    Wally: Porcupine quills. Hates people, loves porcupines. She's in heat too. Too bad you're not a dog. What can I do ya for?

    Capt. Braddock: [to Dave, talking slowly] Was there... a wom-an... pres-ent?

    Dave: [to Capt. Braddock, talking slowly] Yes. There was... a wom-an... pres-ent.

    Capt. Braddock: Why is he talking like that?

  • Dave: Don't we get a last request?

    Eve: What would you like?

    Eve: Thank you. Mr Karew, what would you you like?

    Wally: I suppose a fuck is out of the question.

    Eve: I'm afraid so.

    Dave: Of course. You've earned my trust, Wally. You've been a very good friend to me these past couple days. You're always there for me. You never get me into trouble. Sometimes it seems a bit boring but that's a small price to pay for such a wonderful friendship.

    Wally: That's beautiful, Dave. Do you mean everything you just said?

    Dave: I'll tell you how I really feel in about a minute or two. Right now I'm a little overwhelmed by the STINK of the seven tons of garbage that you drove us into!

    Bilko: Would you tell me that later tonight so I don't have to take a sleeping pill?

    Fender: [whispering] He sure does.

    Morales: [whispering] It's not good.

    Bilko: But what are the last two letters in the name Bilko? K-O! Of course the first few letters are B-I-L, which is meaningless. But still, am I giving up? No! Never! Well kind of, but not really, because there is *no way* I'm going to Greenland. Well, you are probably wondering if I have a plan. Well, of course I have a plan! A P-L-A-N - plan!

    [as Fender tries to grab him, Wally uses martial arts skills to twist his arm and flip him over onto the floor]

    Wally: They are.

    Bilko: No kidding?

  • [Bilko is playing golf in the middle of the base]

    Wally: Sarge, they let you do this?

  • Wally: Permission to speak freely, Sarge.

    Bilko: Permission? What, are we in Russia? Say anything you want.

  • [after being brought home by the police]

    Wally: There's a perfectly reasonable explanation for this.

    Wally's wife: Please don't.

  • Mildred: Cut it out, Wally. You make me feel like Little Red Riding Hood.

    Wally: And I'm the Big Bad Wolf, huh? Now, Milly, you've got me all wrong. I'm a romantic guy, but I'm no wolf.

    Wally: [Smirk] You will.
