Is it just me, or does every woman in Queens have some kind of an emotional problem?

Prince Akeem

Let's hear for my band, Sexual Chocolate.

Randy Watson

So you see, my son, there is a very fine line between love and nausea.

King Jaffe Joffer

Listen, I know what I like, and I know you know what I like, because you were trained to know what I like, but I would like to know, what do you like?

Prince Akeem

Maurice: Mr. McDowell?
Cleo McDowell: Yes?
Maurice: There's some people here to see you.
Cleo McDowell: They're not from McDonalds are they?
Cleo McDowell: I don't think so.

And when I say the boy has his own money, I mean THE BOY HAS HIS OWN MONEY.

Cleo

Cab Driver: This shitty enough for ya?
Prince Akeem: Yes, this will be fine.

Prince Akeem: But when I marry, I want the woman to love me for who I am, not because of what I am.
King Jaffe Joffer: And who are you?
Prince Akeem: I am a man who has never tied his own shoes.
King Jaffe Joffer: Wrong. You are a PRINCE who has never tied his own shoes. I tied my own shoes once. It is an overrated experience.

Fascinating. Semmi, look at this. America is great indeed. Imagine a country so free, you can throw out broken glass on the streets.

Prince Akeem

Look... me and the McDonald's people got this little misunderstanding. See, they're McDonald's... I'm McDowell's. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds.

Cleo McDowell

Prince Akeem: I am Akeem.
Lisa McDowell: It's nice to meet you, Akeem.
Prince Akeem: I have recently been placed in charge of garbage. Do you have any that requires disposal?
Lisa McDowell: No. It's totally empty.
Prince Akeem: When it fills up, call me. I will take it out most urgently.
Lisa McDowell: That's good to know.
Prince Akeem: When you think of garbage, think of Akeem.

It is of no consequence to me.
