Viveca Lindfors as Professor Taub

  • (Viveca Lindfors) "'It could be tonight,' he though as he stood in the corner, pretending to have a good time. He would meet her tonight. All his young life, he had dreamed of a girl like this. 5'6, silky hair, trim, nubile body. Nubile, by the way, is spelled with a "u"."
  • (Viveca Lindfors) "Trim, nubile body that really knew how to move. And soft, deeply tanned skin. Now as for personality traits, she needed only one. She had to love sex and all the time. To arrive at this moment, he had traveled vast distances enduring many hardships. Abject poverty, starvation, show tunes, you name it. From across the room, he saw her. She was perfect. He knew almost nothing about her and she didn't know much more about him. It was exactly how it was supposed to be. He brought her to his room. The lights were soft, the moment was right. Then she leaned over and whispered in his ear, 'Do you love me?' Thoughts raced through his mind. Did she really want him? What had he done to deserve this bounty? Does God exist? Who invented liquid soap and why? 'Do you love me?' Staring into her eyes he knew that she really needed to hear it but for the first time in his life, he knew these were no longer just words and if he said it, it would be a lie. 'Do you love me?' she whispered. 'Do you love me?' It would not be tonight. The answer was no."

John Cusack as Gib

  • (John Cusack) "What the hell's wrong with being stupid once in awhile? Does everything you do always have to be sensible? Haven't you ever thrown waterballoons off a roof? When you were a little kid didn't you ever sprinkle Ivory flakes on the living room floor 'cause you wanted to make it snow in July? Didn't you ever get really s***faced and maybe make a complete fool of yourself and still have an excellent time?"
  • (John Cusack) "You told her I was a virgin?"

  • (John Cusack) "She thought I was gay."
  • (Anthony Edwards) "It's a bigger challenge."
  • (John Cusack) "Consider outer space. You know, from the time of the first NASA mission, it was clear that outer space has a clear effect on the human psyche. Why, during the first Gemini mission, thought was actually given to sending up a man and a woman -- together."
  • (Julie) "Really?"
  • (John Cusack) "A cosmic 'Adam and Eve,' if you will. Bound together by fate, situated on the most powerful rocket yet known to man. It's giant thrusters blasting them into the dark void, as they hurtle towards their final destination: the gushing wellspring of life itself."
  • (John Cusack) "How would you like to have a sexual encounter so intense it could conceivably change your political views?"
  • (John Cusack) "You know, junk food doesn't deserve the bad rap that it gets. Take these pork rinds for example. This particular brand contains two percent of the R.D.A.; that's Recommended Daily Allowance; of riboflavin."
  • (John Cusack) "You know, I've never met anyone like you before. Usually when I meet someone new I feel awkward and shy. But with you it's different. I can talk to you. You know what I'm thinking without my having to explain to you in fancy terms. We speak each other's unspoken language -- fluently. I love you."
  • (Fat Guy in Bar) "What's wrong with me? I'm a good-looking guy."
  • (John Cusack) "You are. You are a good-looking guy. And I'm a good-looking guy."
  • (Fat Guy in Bar) "You are."
  • (John Cusack) "I am."
  • (Cowboy Guy) "We're all three good-looking guys."

  • (John Cusack) "Barkeep. Get this man a trough of Spritzer. And you, Cowboy Guy, what do you wanna drink?"
  • (Cowboy Guy) "I'll have a beer."
  • (John Cusack) "Get Cowboy Guy a beer."
  • (John Cusack) "It's locked. Good. This is very good. It's important that this place should have an air-tight security system -- in the middle of nowhere."
  • (Daphne Zuniga) "I might have a nail file -- I have a credit card. I have a credit card."
  • (John Cusack) "Credit cards work on a completely different kind of lock."
  • (John Cusack) "No, you don't seem to understand. I have a credit card."
  • (John Cusack) "You have a credit card?"
  • (Daphne Zuniga) "I have a credit card."
  • (John Cusack) "You have a credit card."
  • (Daphne Zuniga) "Oh. My dad told me specifically I can only use it in case of an emergency."
  • (John Cusack) "Well, maybe one will come up."
  • (Unnamed) "Forget her, I hear she only likes intellectuals"
  • (John Cusack) "So? I'm intellectual and stuff."

  • (John Cusack) "So, what else did Lance say about me?"
  • (Nicollette Sheridan) "He said you're a virgin."

  • (Nicollette Sheridan) "He thinks you might be gay."
  • (John Cusack) "Don't say that."

  • (Anthony Edwards) "It's your own fault, you know. You should be coming out to California with me."
  • (John Cusack) "Yeah, right. Get a totally bitchin' education out there, dude. California. You could be coming to New England with me, you know."
  • (Anthony Edwards) "Are you crazy? The Ivy leagues stink. All they got there are those ugly intellectual girls with Band-Aids on their knees from playing the cello. No thank you."
  • (John Cusack) "Sorry I'm late. There was this big problem -- and I'm late because of it."
  • (John Cusack) "Thanks for the ride. I've been out here all day. I'm not interrupting anything am I?"
  • (Pick-Up Driver) "Me and the wife just having a little squabble, OK."
  • (John Cusack) "Oh. It's not easy getting rides. Do you know what I mean? I mean most people are real afraid to pick up hitchhikers. I mean you never know who you might pick up. I mean I could be some crazed slime ball. I mean a real deranged, violent psycho. You know what I mean? I mean a guy who would rip out your heart and eat it"
  • (John Cusack) "just for pleasure."
  • (John Cusack) "I'm talking about a total maniac. You know what I mean?"

  • (John Cusack) "Don't you want to give me a ride?"
  • (Pick-Up Driver) "I'm only goin' about another mile."
  • (John Cusack) "Then what the hell did you pick me up for? You think I got nothing better to do with my life then to sit here and pass the time with you,"
  • (John Cusack) "s*** BRAAAIN."
  • (John Cusack) "I don't think I want this ride after all."
  • (John Cusack) "And I think I think I'll take your wife, if you don't mind."
