Randal: What did you like better, Jedi or The Empire Strikes Back?
Dante: Empire had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader’s his father. Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that’s what life is, a series of down endings. All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets.
Angry man: Now lose the skates, Dorothy Hamill, and open the fuckin’ store!
Hockey player: Dante, where are ya?
Angry man: He’s busy!
Dante: In a second!
Angry man: Fuck “in a second”! This–oh look at you, you can’t even pass!
Dante: Hey, I can pass!
Angry man: How ’bout covering the point? Man, you suck.
Dante: Who are you to make assessments?
Angry man: Hey, I’ll assess all I want, pal.
Hockey player: Hey, Dante, you in or out?
Angry man: Don’t pass to this guy. He sucks! You suck!
Dante: Oh, like you’re any better?
Angry man: Hey, I’ll whoop your ass any day, pal!
Dante: Oh, it’s easy to for you to say from over here!
Angry man: Gimme your stick, pretty boy. I’ll knock your fuckin’ teeth out and pass all over your ass!
Customer: Hey, you open?
William Black: Yeah, you open?
Dante and Angry man: No!
Customer: Cute cat. What’s its name?
Randal: Annoying customer.
Customer: Fuckin’ dickhead.
Dante: I’m stuck in this pit, working for less than slave wages, working on my day off. The goddamn steel shutters are closed. I deal with every backward-assed fuck on the planet. I smell like shoe polish. My ex-girlfriend is catatonic after fucking a dead guy, and my present girlfriend has sucked 36 dicks.
Randal: Chick only made you nuts, man. She cheated on you how many times?
Dante: Eight and a half.
Randal: Eight and a half?
Dante: Party at John Kay’s, senior year; I get blitzed, pass out in his bedroom. Caitlin comes in and jumps all over me.
Randal: So, that’s cheating?
Dante: No. In the middle of it she called me Brad.
Randal: She called you Brad?
Dante: Called me Brad.
Randal: That’s not cheating. People say crazy shit during sex. One time I called this girl ‘Mom’.
