Del: You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you… but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I’m not changing. I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.

Neal: Del… Why did you kiss my ear? Del: Why are you holding my hand? Neal: [frowns] Where’s your other hand? Del: Between two pillows… Neal: Those aren’t pillows!
[they both leap out of bed, screaming and shaking their hands in disgust]
Buck: Well, well, well, they certainly are scraping the bottom of the barrel for cheerleaders these days. Tia: What are you doing here? Buck: We were just driving by to get some ice cream. Thought you might like to join us. Tia: I said I would be home at 10. It’s not even 9! Buck: Who said anything about that? I thought you might like to join us for some ice cream. Maybe your Bug here can join us. We can talk about burying the hatchet. You know what a hatchet is, don’t you, Bug? Bug: It’s an ax? Buck: Sort of, yeah, yeah. I got one in my car if you’d like to see it. Bug: [getting scared] I’ll pass. Buck: Fair enough. I like to carry it, you never know when you’re going to need it. A situation may come up say for example, someone has been drinking, and about to drive a loved one home… then I’d like to know I have it. Not to kill, no. Just to maim. Take a little off the shoulder. Swish! The elbow. Slash! Shave a little meat off the old kneecap. Fowap! Ooooo! You got both kneecaps? I like to keep mine razor sharp. Sharp enough you can shave with it. Why I’ve been known to circumcise a gnat. You’re not a gnat are you, Bug? Wait a minute, bug, gnat. Is there a little similarity? Whoa, I think there is! Ha ha ha. You understand what I’m talking about? I don’t think you do. I’ll be right back. Heh heh heh heh.
[walks away] Tia: I’m sorry. Bug: Look, I think you’d better split. I don’t exactly want him to go berserk with an ax on me. Tia: He’s all talk.
[Buck pulls out a small hatchet from his car] Buck: Here it is! Come over, come on, I want to show it to you. Maybe later. Okay.
I’m so sad that Halloween season is over. I really enjoyed doing the horror movie quotes. Speaking of Halloween, the late, great John Candy would have turned 65 this past Halloween. So, in honor of this comedy legend, I declare that this is John Candy week. Enjoy!
Lasky: Rusty, may I call you Rusty? I had a bad experience on this ride once.
