Skin Deep (1989 film) Quotes

John Ritter as Zack Hutton

  • (John Ritter) "I figured it out, Barney. You can't cure a problem until you know what's causing the problem. But before you can see what's causing the problem, you first have to remove the problem."
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "You've gotta give up the vices to get to the virtues. I could've told you that."
  • (John Ritter) "Yeah? Why didn't you?"
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "You want it to take, you got to figure it out for yourself."
  • (John Ritter) "Okay, wise guy, what's my problem?"
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "You're scared like the rest of us. You drink too much, you chase girls much too much, and you don't use your God-given talent anymore."
  • (John Ritter) "You've known that all along?"
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "I'm a good bartender."
  • (John Ritter) "There is a God. And he's a gag-writer."
  • (John Ritter) "What have you got against my typewriter?"
  • (Alyson Reed) "You used to write on it. Books and plays and movies. Once, once you wrote me a poem on our 2nd anniversary and gave it to me. And you were happy. You exorcised your demons with credible thoughts and good words on that typewriter, and your talent turned me on. I really thought we had a chance "until death do us part," and then one day you stopped. You gave up."
  • (John Ritter) "I dried up. It happens to writers."
  • (Alyson Reed) "Oh, so you bury yourself with the first available young female that comes along, in the hopes that she's going to magically restore your lost talent?"
  • (John Ritter) "Alex --"
  • (Alyson Reed) "No, don't say it. This is a lecture. Not a debate. And since I don't intend to speak to you for the rest of this lifetime, you either get out now, or shut up and let me finish."
  • (Alyson Reed) "I'm not saying that your condition is unique. In fact, quite a few older men do the same thing."
  • (John Ritter) "How about a few older women?"
  • (Alyson Reed) "If your trying to redeem yourself by implying that I might have been unfaithful to you, you're barking up the wrong older woman. I could have, but regrettably didn't. I threw out that typewriter because it represents everything that could have been loving and lasting and wonderful, and everything that wasn't."
  • (John Ritter) "Can I say something please?"
  • (Alyson Reed) "No. No. No. You have 20 minutes to get your things and get out of this house forever, or I will get a restraining order and have you removed."
  • (John Ritter) "You are such a prick."
  • (Peter Donat) "Most of my friends are pricks."
  • (John Ritter) "Most of your pricks are friends."
  • (John Ritter) "I don't know what to say --"
  • (Denise Crosby) "How about "The Lord is my shepherd"?"
  • (John Ritter) "You see, I truly love women."
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "Oh, I see."
  • (John Ritter) "I love everything about them, Barney. I love the way they feel, the way they smell, most of the time. I have to admit, I don't like women with long, round toenails. But that is the only abrogation so far. And so far has been quite a while and quite a few."
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "Oh, that's true."
  • (John Ritter) "I long for a meaningful, monogamous, healthy relationship. And I was sure I had it with Alex, but the truth is, Barney, in the deep dark silence of my considered conscience, where there's just me and me, the unmitigated truth is, I want it all."
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "Hey, wanting is okay."
  • (John Ritter) "I want a loving, faithful, caring, caretaking wife, and I wanna make love to everything else in long skirts, with bare feet and ripe, juicy mouths. Little boy-girls with small firm breasts and tight asses. Rubensque round women with big Mother Earth breasts and green eyes. God. I could go on and on."
  • (Vincent Gardenia) "Don't. I'm getting a hard-on."
  • (John Ritter) "Me too."
  • (John Ritter) "If you think I'm such a failure, why do you keep on representing me?"
  • (Peter Donat) "That's like asking a heroin addict why he keeps shooting up. It's because he keeps hoping for that first-time rush, that cherry high, even though he knows he'll never get it again. He's hooked and he keeps hoping."
  • (John Ritter) "Watch out, I may surprise you."
  • (Peter Donat) "You watch out, I'm beyond surprises."
  • (John Ritter) "Not being able to write is like not being able to screw."
  • (John Ritter) "My name is Zachary Hutton and my wish is to f*** you."
  • (John Ritter) "I'm a desperate man, Doctor. I need help. I gotta change my way of living, and if that ain't enough, I'm gonna change the way I strut my stuff."
  • (John Ritter) "'Cause nobody loves you when your old and gray. There'll be some changes made today. Yes, sir, there'll be some changes made. Duh-duh-da."
  • (John Ritter) "I couldn't resist it. You think I'm crazy?"
  • (Michael Kidd) "No."
  • (John Ritter) "Then what the hell is wrong with me?"
  • (Michael Kidd) "Well, for one thing, you can't sing worth s***."
  • (Traffic Judge) "The arresting officer states that you were clocked at 134 miles an hour. Anything to say about that, Mr. Hutton?"
  • (John Ritter) "I was in a hurry, Your Honor."
  • (Traffic Judge) "Me too. Five hundred dollars or 30 days."
  • (John Ritter) "Get me the f*** out of here."

Vincent Gardenia as Barney

  • (Vincent Gardenia) "Why did you wrap yourself in toilet paper?"
  • (John Ritter) "Because I was cold."

Alyson Reed as Alex

  • (Alyson Reed) "Are you completely off your nut?"
  • (John Ritter) "Don't beg, Alex. It doesn't suit you."
  • (Alyson Reed) "Oh, Zach."
  • (John Ritter) "Oh, what?"
  • (Alyson Reed) "There are a lot of things about you that I would highly recommend. But you're never gonna last with anyone. You may settle down for a while, but then something will happen. You'll get scared and start to look for some -- thing, some -- place. Some young girl to save you. You're on a merry-go-round, Zach, and the brass ring is just a brass ring. It solves nothing."
  • (John Ritter) "I'm doomed?"
  • (Alyson Reed) "You're Zach, and you like merry-go-rounds."

Jean Marie McKee as Rebecca

  • (Jean Marie McKee) "Do me a favor, Zack?"
  • (John Ritter) "Name it, Becky."
  • (Jean Marie McKee) "Don't call me Becky. I f***ing hate it."
  • (John Ritter) "I'm truly sorry, Rebecca. It f***ing won't happen again."

Julianne Phillips as Molly

  • (Julianne Phillips) "I'm not going to argue with you anymore, Zach. You're dishonest, and you're too good with words."
  • (John Ritter) "Hey. When have I ever been dishonest with you?"
  • (Julianne Phillips) "Oh, come on. You were dishonest with me from the time you decided you wanted to f*** me."
  • (John Ritter) "We were introduced. I said, "How do you do? I want to f*** you." What's dishonest about that?"
  • (Julianne Phillips) "Zach, in the six months of living together, we had 100 arguments."
  • (John Ritter) "I only counted 99."
  • (Julianne Phillips) "Okay. Out of those 99 arguments, was there ever a time that you thought I was right?"
  • (John Ritter) "Honestly? No."
  • (Julianne Phillips) "What does that tell you?"
  • (John Ritter) "That you were wrong 99 times out of 100."

Raye Hollitt as Lonnie Jones

  • (Raye Hollitt) "Look at it this way, Zach. I've worked 5 years, 52 weeks a year, five days a week, 3 hours a day, to build this body."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "And for one night, this night, it's all yours."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "How do you feel about that?"
  • (John Ritter) "Like Mrs. Arnold Schwarzenegger."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "I love your sense of humor."
  • (John Ritter) "And it loves you."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "Do you always try to joke your way out of a tight spot?"
  • (John Ritter) "Not always. Occasionally, I'm too frightened to make my lips move."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "I hope you're not frightened now, Zach."
  • (John Ritter) "I'm not, but fortunately my cock is scared stiff."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "You know what your problem is, Zach?"

  • (Raye Hollitt) "You drink too much."
  • (John Ritter) "Yep."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "You're probably an alcoholic."

  • (Raye Hollitt) "Drugs?"
  • (John Ritter) "Nope. Merry-go-rounds."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "You wanna go home with me, Zach?"
  • (John Ritter) "Yep."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "Let's go."
  • (John Ritter) "Can't."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "Why not?"
  • (John Ritter) "I'm just a kid."
  • (Raye Hollitt) "You're sweet."
