- Mademoiselle, the boys at the Emergency Suicide ward have voted to give you this gold watch for unusual devotion.
- I've hated you from the first moment I married you!
- You are a monster and a monster, in that order.
- Marriage? That's for life! It's like cement!
- Look, I know you'll think this is crazy, but, er, when the light hits me from a certain direction, I'm... handsome.
- We played strip chess. She had me down to my shorts and I fainted from tension.
- Fritz Fassbender: You're grotesque!
- Anna Fassbender: Lascivious adulterer!
- Fritz Fassbender: Don't you dare call me that again until I have looked it up! [looks in dictionary] "Lascivious adulterer... a man who is a lascivious adulterer"? What kind of book is this?
- Anna Fassbender: Is she prettier than me?
- Fritz Fassbender: Is she prettier than you? I'm prettier than you!
- Michael: Did you get a job?
- Victor: Yes, I got something at the strip-tease. I help the girls dress and undress.
- Michael: Nice job.
- Victor: Twenty francs a week.
- Michael: Not very much.
- Victor: It's all I could afford.
- Liz Bien: You're right. I must face my problems. I can't go through life being a semi-virgin.
- Michael James: What, in the name of all that is gracious, is a semi-virgin?
- Liz Bien: Here, I'm a virgin. In America, I'm not.
- Michael James: What do they do? Stamp it on your passport?
- Fritz Fassbender: My father, the most beloved gynecologist in Vienna, before they took him away on a morals charge for indecent exposure at the State Opera House, said, and I quote: "Please do not take me away, I will not do it again."
- Victor Skakapopulis: Brilliant quote.
- Fritz Fassbender: He was a brilliant pervert.
- Michael James: Could you tell me about your typical clientele?
- Etienne: My typical clientele?
- Michael James: Typical.
- Etienne: All the people who are here now are typical clientele.
- Michael James: Really?
- Etienne: There is a man cheating on his wife in room Lola Montez. There is a woman cheating on her two husbands in Carlotta. Two lovers of indeterminate sex in Reine Margot. And two men cheating in Don Juan.
- Michael James: Yes. Well, one might say the joint is jumping.
- Fritz Fassbender: I, uh, decided to follow you here.
- Michael James: If you followed me here, how did you contrive to be here before me?
- Fritz Fassbender: I followed you... very fast.
