[to Donna] The reason why I'm here is because I'm interested in you, not your father.
[to Col. Lawrence] You know what I'd like? I'd like you to resist arrest. Just a little. God, I'd really like that. [cuffs one hand] You have the right to remain silent, you have the right to an attorn - [Col. Lawrence elbows him in the face with free arm]

[to Alan] I've known buildings that were easier to talk to than you.
You open your mouth one more time, and I'll shove your head so far up your ass, you'll be talking out of your armpit.
Dialogue [ edit ]
Alan: Now, are you sure you want to have a fight? Because I'm only gonna use my thumb.
Bully in Bar: Thumb?
Alan: My right thumb. Left one's much too powerful for you.
Donna: Say something.
Donna: That's a start.
Alan: You're not going out dressed like that. Are you?
Donna: Like what?
Alan: Well, you can see right through that dress. You might just as well go out without one.
Donna: There's a thought.
Alan: [ to Julius] Now why don't you ask him how he won the Medal of Honor?
Ross: How old are you, Julius?
Ross: You want to live to be nine?
Alan: Obviously, he didn't win it for charm.
Alan: [to bully at bar] You see these little oak leaves? They're silver. That means I'm a lieutenant-colonel. If they were gold, THEN I'd be a major! Understand? [hits the bully's head on the bar]
Bully: [grunts & nods] Yes sir!
Alan: Now, next time you see an officer of the Army, you'll know how to recognize his rank!
Thug: Who the hell do you think you are?
Ross: I'm the Infantry, sonny.
