Rusty: The man who's robbing you!

Did someone call for a doctor?


Rusty: [to Linus] You look down, they know you're lying. Up, they know you don't know the truth. Don't use seven words when four will do. Don't shift your weight, look always at your mark but don't stare, be specific but not memorable, be funny but don't make him laugh.

Livingston: Rus?
Rusty: Yeah?
Livingston: Come look at this?
Rusty: Sure. [leaves]

Danny: Now, they tell me I paid my debt to society.
Tess: Funny, I never got a check.

Rusty: Longest hour of my life.
Bartender: [not hearing him] What?
Rusty: I'm running away with your wife.
Bartender: Great!

Reverend Williams

Maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue. And maybe we can actually never have it no matter what.

Christopher Gardner
