The guy is a goddamn used car salesman! This just keeps getting better and better! [Harry gives him a dirty look] I'm sorry, Harry, l I know this is hard for you. But you gotta admit if this was me you'd be laughing your ass off!

[to Dana, who's wearing a helmet] Yeah, I remember the first time I got shot out of a cannon.

It's called ice and it gets a little slick.

I'm beginning to like this guy. [Harry gives him a mean look] Oh, we've still gotta kill him. That's a given.

30 seconds and counting. Ditch the bitch.

What did you expect, Harry? Helen's a flesh and blood woman and you're never there. It was only a matter of time.
