MEMORABLE REMARKS

  • There's something to be said for craggy charm. Without it, half the men on the planet would sleep alone. [Pratt]
  • A man without his pants leaves little room for misunderstanding. [Ramos]
  • You can't hang a man for losing his pants. [Pratt]
  • I want a real lawyer. I want a lawyer with three names. [Pratt]
  • I didn't write that! It has a split infinitive! It's obviously a forgery! [Pratt]
  • Mr. Legend's metabolism is under stress. He needs a greater caloric intake. [Bartok]
    You know, if you immigrants are going to live in this country, I don't know why you can't learn to speak the language. [Motes]
  • Well, let's just hope he didn't change horses in mid-stream. [Pratt]
    Oh, no, this doesn't work in a stream. [Bartok]
  • Oh, no no! You are making a grievous mistake! Oh, look how you are upsetting my poor, mute, stupid, idiot brother. [Bartok]
  • I know those eyes. Those beady little eyes are on all the books. [Sam]
    Beady, are they? Well, aren't we the master of the fresh adjective? [Pratt]
  • No! You're riding in the wrong direction! He's going right towards them! [Bartok]
    That's my Nicodemus! [Bonnie Blue]
  • It would be a real honor if you'd deliver our baby. [Harold]
    What?! All right. Why don't I go fetch some boiling water. I'll get a midwife for you and a shot of bourbon for me. [Pratt]
  • After all, if you do hang me and find out later it was a mistake, there's not much you can do to rectify the situation, after all, we'll be dealing with a problem because I'll be dead, neck broken, I kicked the bucket, ceased to be, shuffled off my mortal coil, I'd be pushing up daisies on Boot Hill, I'd be an ex-Pratt! [Pratt]
  • For my final words, I'd like to recite one of my favorite passages from one of my favorite works. It's the soliloquy from "The Mad Comanchero." Should only take an hour or so. [Pratt]
  • She's young, and impressionable, and I intend to impress her, if you know what I mean. [Pratt]
