Dr. Ben Sobel[edit]

  • I am grieving. It's a process.
  • [straining] I'm very attached to my balls.
  • Ginko biloba. Helps my memory, and I forget what else.


Paul Vitti: [while working as an auto dealer] Look at the size of this trunk. You can put three bodies in there.


Dr. Ben Sobel: Lou the Wrench? Why the Wrench?
Paul Vitti: He twisted some guy's head off.
Dr. Ben Sobel: OFF?

Agent Miller: Dr. Sobel, have you been receiving calls from mobster Paul Vitti?
Dr. Ben Sobel: Why would you say I received a call from Paul Vitti?
Agent Miller: Because we record all his calls from Sing Sing.
Dr. Ben Sobel: Then yes I did.

Dr. Ben Sobel: Paul, you know what you said about not flipping out?
Paul Vitti: Yeah.
Dr. Ben Sobel: Sorry.
[freaks out]

Dr. Ben Sobel: I thought you might appreciate a nice home-cooked meal after being in prison for so long.
Paul Vitti: Yeah, that's what I've been jerkin' off for the last 850 nights in a row, a fuckin' home-cooked meal. "Oh, tuna casserole!"

Dr. Ben Sobel: I know what you're doing, Paul. You're just upset that I have custody of you, so you passive-aggressively arranged for me to look like a fool.
Paul Vitti: Oh, come on. You were great! You were great!
Dr. Ben Sobel: Second take, I thought, was a little better than the first. Jelly wasn't giving me much, honestly. So I j... Screw you, Paul.

Dr. Ben Sobel: I was at a funeral.
Paul Vitti: What's that got to do with someone trying to kill me in jail? You're my Doctor!
Dr. Ben Sobel: My father died.
Paul Vitti: So. With you, it is always me, me, me, me, me, me. He's dead. So get over it.

Mobster: No hard feelings.
Dr. Ben Sobel: No... and probably never again.

[after Paul opens the bedroom door]
Dr. Ben Sobel: I have a 17-year-old son.
Paul Vitti: I'll ask her.

Dr. Ben Sobel: The girl has got to go.
Paul Vitti: You know, Doc, I think you might be jealous.
Dr. Ben Sobel: Oh, and what exactly might I be jealous of?
Paul Vitti: I don't know, I didn't hear nothin' comin' out of your room.
Dr. Ben Sobel: We just don't think it's necessary to wake the neighbors every time we have sex!
Paul Vitti: If you're quiet enough, you can do it without waking your wife.

Eddie DeVol: [Paul and Jelly go to Patti LoPresti's house, Eddie DeVol opens door] Yeah, what?
Paul Vitti: "Yeah, what?" Is that how you answer the door? "Yeah, what?"
Eddie DeVol: You got a problem with that?
Paul Vitti: [punches Eddie, enters house] Yeah, what?
Jelly: [points gun at Eddie who is lying on floor] Don't bother getting up on our account.

[Ben has been called to give a eulogy at his father's funeral.]
Dr. Ben Sobel: It's not easy for me to talk about my father, because, in a sense, I am talking about two people. One is the public Isaac Sobel, the eminent psychotherapist and popular author known to millions of readers across the world. The second is the private man. My father. [Ben and his family audience smile.] Dad. And for those of you who knew him well, and know our family, well, I don't have to tell you; [Ben's face hardens.] He was a psychotic prick. An arrogant, ego-inflated son-of-a-bitch! [As the audience gasps in horror, Sobel looks down onto his father's casket.] I wish you were alive so I can kill you! ROT IN HELL!
[The film cuts to a detached-looking Ben at his seat as the preacher calls him to the podium; the speech was only a figment of his imagination.]
