Deceiver

    Wayland: Do you consider yourself intelligent?
    Braxton: What?
    Wayland: Are you smart? Do you think of yourself as a smart man?
    Braxton: Well...Smart as the next guy, I guess.
    Wayland: Why? What makes you think this? I mean, what gives you the right to decide whether or not I'm a truthful person? You don't seem particularly insightful to me. I'll bet you didn't even make it out of community college.
    Braxton: Look at it this way Wayland, you ain't got a choice. Trust me, son, I'm qualified.
    Wayland: Qualified. Hmm. Well, that's comforting.

    Braxton: Sure it is.
    Wayland: No, I'm serious, that's not my card. Mine was the ace of spades.
    Braxton: You picked the ace?
    Wayland: It's so crazy, I thought it just might work.

Four Rooms

  • 4rooms1.wav (432K)
    Ted: Your dad says he hates babysitters...doesn't trust 'em. Well, can't say I blame him, really. You know what my babysitter did to me when I was a kid? I used to hate going to sleep. You know, it's late, you wanna get up, run around, go crazy? Well, what my babysitter used to do to me to make sure I stayed in bed and wasn't tempted to get up, was, she'd take some of this Vaporub...
    Kid: (cough cough)
    Ted: ...and she'd dab a little on each eye, just to make sure I'd stay put. There. Now, you have some, too. Don't open your eyes, or it'll burn, burn, burn.
    Kid: What about in the morning?
    Ted: Well, if you keep your eyes shut tight, all night, it'll wear off by morning...but don't open them before then!
    Kid: Did you ever open your eyes?
    Ted: Yes I did. And look at me now.
    Kids: We can't.

  • 4rooms4.wav (303K)
    Ted: Well most recently, there's Room 309. There's this scary Mexican gangster dude poking his finger in my chest. There's his hooligan kids snapping their fingers at me. There's a putrid, rotting corpse of a dead whore stuffed in the springs of the bed. There's rooms blazing afire. There's a big, fat needle from God knows where stuck in my leg infecting me with God knows what. And finally there's me, walking out the door, right fucking now. Buenos Noches.
  • 4rooms5.wav (9.89K)
    Ted: I've got to get out of here!
  • 4rooms6.wav (549K)
    Ted: The name's Ted. Yes, my mother did me the service of naming me Theodore, and I haven't a clue as to how you know that because everbody who knows that is thousands of fucking miles away! Have you any idea -- the faintest idea -- what it's like to arrive at school and find yourself surrounded by the maladjusted? And there you stand: Little Lord Fauntelroy. Ever worn a bonnet? Give it a try sometime. So, shoot me now, because no one is ever going to call me Theodore again! Let alone, Theo the Thumper.

  • rosguil1.wav (86.4K)
    Guildenstern: The law of averages, if I've got this right, means that if six monkeys were thrown up in the air long enough, they would land on their tails about as often as they would land on their--
    Rosencrantz: Heads.
  • rosguil2.wav (186K)
    Rosencrantz: Do you think death could possibly be a boat?
    Guildenstern: No, no, no. Death is not. Death isn't. Take my meaning? Death is the ultimate negative. Not being. You can't not be on a boat.
    Rosencrantz: I've frequently not been on boats.
    Guildenstern: No, no. What you've been is not on boats.
  • rosguil3.wav (91K)
