AMDB Memorable Quotes:
Sailor: The storm might capsize us. We have to pull into port.
Rett: Fuck this (starts singing "Girl Treble".)
Rett: I promise to take very good care of your daughter.
Dr. Goodling: I don't trust you to keep your hands to yourself.
Rett: These hands? They don't get into anything worse than massaging the neck of my guitar.
Dr. Goodling: I'll massage your neck with a noose!
Rett: Sorry, pops, no time to hang around.
Dr. Goodling: That boy is no good. Just a cowboy with no talent for anything but some stupid songs.Rett: I like your grass skirt, what's your name?
Connie Goodling: I disagree because it would run counter to my thin archetype to agree.
Annie Arrow: Me name Annie Arrow.
Rett: Hey, you look hungry. You want one of my hamburgers?
Annie Arrow: I'll tuna eat.
Rett: Heyyy, Altuna? Me too. I'm from Altuna. Small world.
Annie Arrow: You no dance with Rett!
Vanessa: You'll be dancing with a knuckle sandwich if you don't knock it off.
Rett: Girls, girls, girls, there's enough of me to go around.
Vanessa: Shut up and play, Rett. We'll settle this the traditional way.
Annie Arrow: Dance!
Rett:Alright! I know just the song for this one!
Big Kahuna: Me give blessing. You marry daughter.
Rett: I can't, chief. I'm going to marry Vanessa.
Big Kahuna: Ah, good. I always knew you make a great roast.
