Harry: What's her last name? I'll look it up.

Harry: Maybe it's on the briefcase.
Lloyd: Oh, yeah! It's right here.
[He reads the manufacturer's name, which is Samsonite.]
Lloyd: Samsonite! I was way off! I knew it started with an S, though.

Lloyd: I'm only human, Harry! Anybody can make a mistake. Come on! Stop bein' a baby! So we backtracked a tad!

Lloyd: Excuse me, little old lady. Do you have change for a dollar?
Elderly woman: Change? No I'm sorry, I don't.
Lloyd: Well, can you do me a favor and watch my stuff here while I go break a dollar?
Elderly woman: Of course.
Lloyd: Thanks. Hey, I guess they're right. Senior citizens, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose. I'll be right back. Don't you go dying on me!

Lloyd: ...What?
[Harry grabs Lloyd and starts strangling him]:

Lloyd: I'm talkin' about a place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talkin' about a little place called Aspen.
Harry: Oh, I dunno, Lloyd, the French are assholes.

Lloyd: The least you could do is level with me. What are my chances?
Mary: Not good.
Lloyd: You mean like one out of a hundred?
Mary: More like one out of a million.
Lloyd: So you're tellin' me there's a chance.

Harry: I can't believe we drove around all day, and there's not a single job in this town. There is nothing, nada, zip!
Lloyd: Yeah! Unless you wanna work forty hours a week!

Lloyd: Funny. I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.
Harry: I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver's full of shit, man.

Harry: Yeah, I lost my job too.
Lloyd: Man, You are one pathetic loser. No offense.
Harry: No, none taken.

[after accidentally killing Mental with rat poison]

Lloyd: I mean, if one beautiful girl can rip us apart like this, then our friendship isn't worth a damn. Maybe we should call it quits right now.
Harry: You just tell me where to sign, bud.
Lloyd: Right on my ass right after ya kiss it!
Harry: Kiss it?! You kiss mine! Both cheeks, both lips! Right here! Mwah, Mwah, Mwah!!

Nicholas: Which one of you wants to get it first?

Lloyd: (faking) Okay. Kill him!

Lloyd: What's going on, Harry? Your name is "Harry", isn't it?
Harry: Yeah, she grabbed down at the lobby, explained what was up, then they slapped this bullet proof vest on me and gave me a gun.
Harry: But what if he shot you in the face?
Harry: [to detective] What if he shot me in the face?
Beth: That's a risk we were willing to take.
