Wendy: Uh, what’s his name?

Pee Wee Morris: His name’s Michael Hunt… uh Mike, Mike. Yes, Mike.

Wendy: Is Mike Hunt here?

[Pee Wee laughs]

Wendy: Is Mike Hunt here?

Inigo Montoya: Offer me money.

Count Rugen: Yes!

Inigo Montoya: Power, too, promise me that.

[He slashes his other cheek]

Count Rugen: All that I have and more. Please…

Inigo Montoya: Offer me anything I ask for.

Count Rugen: Anything you want…

[Rugen knocks Inigo’s sword aside and lunges. But Inigo traps his arm and aims his sword at Rugen’s stomach]

Quote of the Day: Diner

Shrevie: Ok, now ask me what’s on the flip side.

Beth: Why?

Shrevie: Just, just ask me what’s on the flip side, OK?

Beth: What is on the flip side?

Shrevie: Hey, Hey, Hey, 1958. Specialty Records.

[Beth nods blankly]

Shrevie: See? You don’t ask me things like that, do you? No! You never ask me what’s on the flip side.

Beth: No! Because I don’t give a shit. Shrevie, who cares about what’s on the flip side about the record?

Shrevie: I do! Every one of my records means something! The label, the producer, the year it was made. Who was copying whose style… who’s expanding on that, don’t you understand? When I listen to my records they take me back to certain points in my life, OK? Just don’t touch my records, ever! You! The first time I met you? Modell’s sister’s high school graduation party, right? 1955. And Ain’t That A Shame was playing when I walked into the door!
