  • Eat lead you man-stealing slut!


  • Shit! I was just about to pop my cookies!
  • [last words before his death] Oh, shit!


  • Guppy: Is something the matter, Mr. Bletch?
  • Abi: Please do not interrupt me, I am traveling on the astral plane.

[first lines of the film]
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen. Your attention please. Welcome to the newest, the greatest, the most spectacular in entertainment history. Put your hands together for the fabulous Feebles variety hour.

Robert: I'm Robert.
Trevor: You may be Robert to your friends but you're fly shit to me! Piss off!

Robert: I thought you were nice.
Lucille: I am nice.
Robert: No your not, you're loose! And you drink!
Lucille: No...
Robert: You're nothing but a loose lush Lucille and I never want to see you again!

Trevor: Didn't you notice you were sitting on his face!
Madame Udder: Well, it was a bit uncomfortable but I thought it was my hemorrhoids.

Bletch: Have you thought of a name for it, yet?
Trevor: I was thinking along the lines of... "Dennis does Daisy".
Bletch: No. That's lousy.
Trevor: How about... "Anal Antics"?
Bletch: "Anal Antics"... yes. It will appeal to the intellectuals. Do you think it will do as well as our last release and win the Hooker Prize?

Sebastian: Heidi! You've been overeating again haven't you!
Heidi: Uh, no I haven't.
Sebastian: Then explain to me why there is black forest cherry cake in your cleavage!

Bletch: Do you really think people are interested in nasal sex?
Trevor: Sure, boss. It's the next big fad.

Bletch: [heading to the golf course] Hey Barry, how's your handicap?
Barry the Bulldog: She's at home boss. Baking a cake.
[Bletch and his henchman laugh]

Cedric: This is a lovely golf course, I'm tempted to join the club meself.
Bletch: No chance of that I'm afraid, Cedric.
Cedric: You mean they discriminate against Scots?
Bletch: No, they just don't want assholes in the clubhouse.

Trevor: All right, you fat slag! Move your ass!
Heidi: How dare you speak to me like that! You horrible, spiteful little rat!
Trevor: I've heard better singing from a mongoose with throat cancer!
Heidi: That's it, I've had enough! I am going straight to Bletch!

Sebastian: ♪ Don't worry if you feel ashamed ♪
♪ It's been around for years ♪
♪ And thousands more that can't be named ♪
♪ Are interested in rears ♪
♪ Don't worry about hell ♪
♪ No harm will come to your soul ♪
♪ We're not a Pentecostal ♪
♪ And everybody's got an asshole ♪
Bletch: Trevor...?
Trevor: Yeah, boss?
Bletch: I want that fudge packer eliminated!

[last lines of the film]
Arthur: Miss Heidi. I know you're a real star and all that. But I'm afraid I'm gonna have to dub you in.
Heidi: Could you do one last thing, Arthur?
Arthur: Anything, Heidi.
Heidi: Play "The Garden of Love".
