Arthur Willis: There only two important things in living - finding out what you do well and finding out what makes you happy. And if God is smiling on you, they're both the same thing.

Jeffrey Willis: Listen, Pal, I'll have you know that I know Jujitsu, Karate, Judo, and some other big words, so don't mess with me alright?

Alfred Schultz: So where's my blind date?
Hawk Ganz: She'll be here! They're coming all the way in from the Bronx.
Alfred Schultz: So what? Are you fixing me up with a bimbo?
Hawk Ganz: Oh no, they're young girls... Bimbettes.
