Dr. Benjamin Stone[edit]

  • Beverly Hills. The most beautiful women in the world. Plastic surgery. What do those three things have in common? Me, in less than a week.
  • [about being stuck in Grady] I'm trapped in this HeeHaw Hell.


  • [to Benjamin, after skinny-dipping in the lake] You can blink now.
  • Can't poop in this town without everybody knowin' what color it is.


  • Nurse Packer: [reading from a note left by Doc Hogue] "When to call me, you've been stabbed, shot, poisoned, separated from an appendage, knocked or beaten unconscious, run over by a tractor mower, or generally about to bleed to death. Otherwise, leave me alone."
  • Dr. Aurelius Hogue: [while being examined] Check Hollywood for knives. I don't want him operating in case I sneeze or something.


Dr. Stone: You want to trade, the pig for the part?
Melvin: If you can part with the pig.
Dr. Stone: Good.

Vialula: I suspect your version of romance is whatever will separate me from my panties.
Dr. Stone: No, I am just talking about dinner. Wear make-up, put on a dress. Panties are optional.

Hank: [about Los Angeles] I heard the women out there have their chests enlarged, their thighs vacuumed, and barf on purpose.
Lillian: [hits Hank in the back of the head] Not while people are eating.

Woman with Glasses: There's a blurred spot in my vision... there... no, there, no, no...
[Dr. Stone takes her glasses and cleans them]
Woman with Glasses: I'm cured.

Dr. Stone: [while dancing] The music's stopped.
Vialula: What music?

Dr. Stone: How's Hogue?
Nancy Lee: Well, he's the same.
Dr. Stone: Melvin?
Nancy Lee: Same.
Dr. Stone: How's your dad?
Nancy Lee: Why don't ask me about Vialula?
Dr. Stone: Oh, ha ha. No, I mean what's there to ask really? I mean, so I guess she and Hank are...
Hank: You're in my chair.
[Ben looks up at Hank]
Hank: Slide a bit, Nancy Lee. [sits down] There is a man in the toilet sellin' after shave. Now, what's that all about?

Nancy Lee: Is that a star?
Hank: No, that's Ted Danson.

Vialula: I'm going for breakfast, you want anything?
Nurse Packer: Mmm-hmmm, how about Bob Barker?
Vialula: [snorts] I'll see what I can do.

Vialula: You steal that pig?
Dr. Stone: Well, I heard she was wasting away in this one-pig town.
Vialula: And you thought you'd come back and rescue her.
Dr. Stone: Yeah, something like that.
Vialula: And what makes you think she'll take you back?
Dr. Stone: Because I love her.
Vialula: [pause] Go back to Los Angeles. [walks past him]
Dr. Stone: [pulls her back] I don't want Lose Angeles. I want you. [kisses her]
Vialula: You got great tonsils.
Dr. Stone: That ain't all. [smiles]

Dr. Stone: You know, I just thought of something. I guess I'm gonna have time to collect that ten dollars from Nick.
Vialula: You lost that bet.
Dr. Stone: I did not lose it.
Vialula: Says me.
Dr. Stone: Says you? You have no say in this bet - you are the bet.
Vialula: I don't care. The bet was for one week. You lost.
Dr. Stone: Ah, it's your word against mine.
Vialula: You mean you would sully my reputation for ten measly dollars?
Dr. Stone: [laughs] Absolutely! I don't even know what sully means.
