Riva: Look, if you bought Stones tickets and Jagger didn't play Satisfaction, how would you feel? Would you be happy?
Carl Casper: No.
Riva: No! You'd burn the place to the fucking ground.

Tom Reagan

Detective Dolly: Nobody reported any gunshots.

Bagheera: Now, while you create a disturbance, I'll rescue Mowgli. Got that?
Baloo: [dancing away] I'm gone, man. Solid gone.

Frank: Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.
Mayor: That was a Shakesphere In The Park Production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed five actors! Good ones!

Now I swear the next one of you primates even touches me...

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome.

Steve Zissou

Now listen to me, all of you. You are all condemned men. We keep you alive to serve this ship. So row well, and live.

Quintus Arrius

Now really, it's rude enough being alive when no one wants you, but showing up uninvited to a wedding?
