[on his first day as Target janitor (night cleanup boy), Jim Dodge meets the Custodian, who points a rifle at him]
Custodian: Are you a slacker?
Jim Dodge: No... Presbyterian actually.
Custodian: What did you say? What did you say? Now I'm asking you a simple question: Are you lazy?

Jim Dodge: I'm getting a feeling that you want me out of your life.
Bud Dodge: I don't want you out of my life, I want you out of my house.

Gil Kinney: You know, if my foot could talk...
Nestor Pyle: Easy...
Gil Kinney: would say, "May I please go up this geek's ass?!"

Officer Don: Mr. McClellan, do you ever have any family problems, you and your daughter?
Roger Roy McClellan: What the hell do you think he is?
Officer Don: You got a point.

Josie McClellan: And you're happy, you know. You're happy.
Jim Dodge: I'm not happy. I'm working nights, everybody thinks I'm a liar, my whole family's laughing at me... Reverand Harwell gave me the finger last week!
