List of Gone Fishin' quotes.

(Joe and Gus come flying through the beach where Phil Beasley is giving a speech)
Phil Beasly: That's my boat!
(the boat finally comes to a rest, it breaks in half as two other boats fall down)
Gus Green, Joe Waters: Hey, Phil!
Gus Green: Hey, Phil, we decided to bring the boat back before the 30 days was up. Right, Joe?
Joe Waters: (shows him the radio wires) Yeah. Look, Phil, this stuff all broke. You better get it all fixed. Thanks, anyway.
Gus Green: Yeah, thanks, man. You know, you need better material.
Joe Waters: Yeah. Sorry.

Joe Waters: I'll do it if you do it.
Gus Green: I'll do it if you do it.

Dekker Massey: So you just sit there and think about me going off to a life of wealth and luxury while you've only got your dreary little poverty-stricken lives to go back to. But I'm sure you'll enjoy spending Thanksgiving here together.
(Joe and Gus register horrified looks)
Dekker Massey: (cruel) Oh, what? Have I ruined your plans for the holidays? Oh, I am so sorry.
