Bill: Whew! Look at this. Four people killed last night in New York, no reason at all, police have no leads. Tragic.
Violet: Dad, what are you doing?
Bill: I guess 4 out of 7 million aint so bad. Headline should read 'Millions Survive Night in New York'.

Bill: Violet, I saw how hard it was on your Mom when she didn't make it, but if she was here she'd tell me to shut up, wish you luck and give you a big hug. I'm not going to give you a big hug and I'm not going to wish you luck, but I am going to shut up, sit here with my coffee and pretend to be mad. Is that okay?

Violet: Hi, I'm Violet Sanford, I just recently moved to New York and I was wondering if you would give my tape to one of your artists.
Receptionist: Violet, that is so cute. Now let me tell you about me. My name is Wendy, and I first moved to new York when I was 21 to be a dancer, but I broke my big toe. and then I got knocked up by this actor who dumped me to join the peace corp, so for the last 16 years I've been raising my daughter all by myself and then two weeks ago she tells me that she is a bisexual and she hates me more than any person on this planet. Now, tell me how I can help you please, cos I'm dying to make your dreams come true.

Violet: I'm not lost. Somebody just moved my street.

Violet: Okay, I've never had anyone stare at my ass for half an hour, so I'm going to say goodnight and I'm hoping you're going to say it back.
Kevin:Okay, I can take a hint. I really do know a lot of people in the music business.
Violet: You just don't give up, do ya?
Kevin: it was the sweet and innocent thing, it did me in.
Violet: Goodnight Kevin.
Kevin: Just for the record, I was only staring at your arse for the first fifteen minutes.

Violet: Are they hookers?
Man: No.. Coyotes.

Lil: Let me take a look at ya. Let me guess; Piedmont, North Dakota.
Violet: South Amboy, New Jersey.
Lil: Same thing.

Violet: Look, are you really the owner, cos I've had a rough couple of days and so the last thing I need is some waitress on a power trip wasting my time.
Lil: You start Friday night.

Violet: I don't mean to be rude but, would you mind telling me why you're hiring me?
Lil: Because, the average male is walking around with a toddler inside his pants, a two year old right there inside his dockers.
Violet: Men have two year old children in their pants - that's why your hiring me?
Lil: You look like a kindegarten teacher, the kids will love it
Violet: Sorry I asked

Zoe: Is this a church meeting or is this a bar? Make some noise!

Lil: That's Rachel, you can learn a lot from her.
Violet: She just cut some guy's ponytail off.
Lil: Yeah, the court ordered her to take anger-management classes after she pummeled a customer for grabbing her ass. He pressed charges, I gave her a raise. Cheers!

Lil: Okay, everybody, shut up! I'd like you to meet my new girl, whose name is... Jersey! Jersey, is an ex kindergarten teacher, and a former nun, who just escaped from the convent, and is tired of being the only virgin in New York City! Would anyone like to buy her a drink?

Customer: What do you have then?
Lil: Jim, Jack, Johnny Red, Johnny Black, and Jose; all my favorite men. You can have it any way you like it, as long as it comes in a shot glass.

Cammie: I'm Cammie, the Russian tease.
Violet: Violet, the Jersey nun.
Cammie: We all play our little parts. That one's Rachel, the New York bitch. Only Rachel really is a bitch, and I really am a tease.
Lil: Cammie, you can only be a tease if you stop sleepin' around, babe.
Cammie: Yeah, I keep forgetting that part!

Rachel: Hey Lil... do we serve water with our whiskey?
Lil: Only water I serve has got barley and hops in it. Hey everybody, do we serve water in this bar?
Everybody: Hell, no H2O!

Violet: Cammie, I think I just fell in love with you.
Cammie: Oh Violet, I'm not a lesbian. I played in the minors but never went pro.
Violet: That's not, what I meant.

Girl: Can I ask you something?
Lil: What?
Girl: What does Coyote Ugly mean?
Lil: Did you ever wake up sober after a one night stand, and the person you're next to is lying on your arm, and they're so ugly, you'd rather chew off your arm then risk waking 'em? That's coyote ugly.
Girl: My God. Well, why would you name your bar after something like that?
Lil: Oh, 'cause Cheers was taken.

Violet: So... what do you want?
Kevin: It's 3 in the morning, I want what every guy wants. Breakfast!

Violet: You collect comic books? That's so cute.
Kevin: It's not cute... it's very rugged and manly.

Kevin: Do you always ask this many questions?
Violet: Do you always dodge this many questions?

Violet: Oh, right, we don't talk about you right? Okay, Kevin, let's play a game. I'm gonna guess why you left Australia. You were in jail? No that's not it. You have a wife and four kids in Sydney, am I getting warm? Come on, Kevin, why'd you run away from home?
Kevin: I didn't have a home! Is that what you wanted to hear? I don't have a family, i mean, that's the big secret! Are you happy? Are you going to feel sorry for me now? Are you gonna hold me close while I tell you I had to change homes every 2 years? I had a bad childhood, big deal. I don't need your sympathy!

Lil: Okay if I sit here at the bar?
Violet: Do you have a reservation?
Lil: Uh, yeah. It's under cast-iron heartless bitch.
Violet: Could it be under stubborn and pigheaded?

Lil: I figured that, you were never a lifer. I'm married to that bar. Hell, I'd sleep there if I had the guts to walk around barefoot. But that's me, you know, I'm the original Coyote. Just a small town gal trying to make it in the big bad city.
Violet: Small town gal?
Lil: Piedmont, North Dakota. You ever tell anyone that, I'll kill ya.

Bill: I only got three rolls of film, I hope that's enough.
Violet: Dad, I'm only singing one song.
Bill: Right. I better go get another one.
