Parnell Emmett McCarthy: "You know, I used to think the world looked better through a glass o' whiskey... It doesn't. I think I'll keep it this way. Looks nice."
Parnell Emmett McCarthy: "...Twelve people, go off into a room. Twelve different minds, twelve different hearts, from twelve different walks of life... Twelve sets of eyes, ears, shapes, and sizes. And these twelve people are asked to judge another human being as different from them as they are from each other. And in their judgment, they must become of one mind - unanimous. It's one of the miracles of Man's disorganized soul that they can do it, and in most instances, do it right well. God bless juries."
Maida Rutledge: "...Tell me we're gonna win... I'm counting on getting that promissory now from the lieutenant. I hope we can borrow some money on it. I need a new typewriter. Half the time, the 'p' and the 'f' don't strike on mine... "Party of the first part" sometimes comes out: "arty o(f) the irst art." Doesn't make sense - it's embarrassing." Paul Biegler: "Arty of the irst art? I kinda like that... has a ring to it." (plays piano)
Paul Biegler: "Mr. Paquette, what would you call a man with an insatiable penchant for women?" Alphonse Paquette: "A what?" Paul Biegler: "A penchant... a desire... taste... passion?" Alphonse Paquette: "Well, a, uh, ladies' man, I guess. Or maybe just a damn fool!" Judge Weaver: "Just answer the questions, Mr. Paquette. The attorneys will provide the wisecracks."
Judge Weaver: "Now, Mr. Dancer, get off the panties. You've done enough damage."
Parnell Emmett McCarthy: "The lieutenant goes to Quill's place and plugs Mr. Quill about five times, which causes Mr. Quill to promptly die of lead poisoning."
Parnell Emmett McCarthy (eyeing an empty liquor bottle): "You fought this soldier by yourself. You've been drinking alone, Paulie. I don't like that." Paul Biegler: "Drop the stone, Counselor. You live in a glass house." Parnell Emmett McCarthy: "My windows have been busted a long time ago, so I can say what I please."
