Quotes

  • Bobby  

    I'd like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.

  • Waitress  

    A #2, chicken salad sand. Hold the butter, the lettuce, the mayonnaise, and a cup of coffee. Anything else?

  • Bobby  

    Yeah, now all you have to do is hold the chicken, bring me the toast, give me a check for the chicken salad sandwich, and you haven't broken any rules.

  • Waitress  

    You want me to hold the chicken, huh?

  • Bobby  

    I want you to hold it between your knees.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    Fantastic that you could figure that all out and lie that down on her so you could come up with a way to get your toast. Fantastic!

  • Bobby  

    Yeah, well, I didn't get it, did I?

  • Palm Apodaca  

    No, but it was very clever. I would have just punched her out.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    Hey, follow that truck. They know the best places to stop.

  • Rayette  

    That's an old maid's tale.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    Bullshit! Truck drivers are the only ones that know the best places to stop on the road.

  • Rayette  

    Salesmen and cops are the ones. If you'd ever waitressed, honey, you'd know that.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    Don't call me honey, mac.

  • Rayette  

    Don't call me mac, honey.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    You know, I read where they, uh, invented this car that runs on, ummm... that runs on, ummm... when you boil water?

  • Terry  

    Steam.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    Right, steam. A car that you could ride around in and not cause a stink. But do you know they will not even let us have it? Can you believe it? Why? Man! He likes to create a stink! I mean, I've seen filth that you wouldn't believe. Ugh! What a stink! I don't even want to talk about it.

  • Palm Apodaca  

    People. Animals are not like that. They're always cleaning themselves. Did you ever see, umm... pigeons? Well, he's always picking on himself and his friends. They're always picking bugs out of their hair all the time. Monkeys too. Except they do something out in the open that I don't go for.
