Linda:
[at Joel's first party] I feel a little out of place here.



Lenny:
You are. You're the best-looking woman here.



Linda:
...People here are a little strange.



Lenny:
Talented people usually ARE a little strange... They were ALL on something; MONEY'S the real drug around here, okay?

Ned:
[over lunch] Lenny, you're a lucky man.



Lenny:
I know that. I keep reminding myself. You got a wife or anything? No? You'd have to take second best anyhow. If you saw Linda and me at a restaurant like this, you'd say, "There's a mismatch." I've seen it in people's eyes: "How did a guy like HIM get a girl like HER? He must be rich."... Not that I'm not trying.

Linda:
[at dinner with Ned] I'm a little too old to be a PROFESSIONAL ballerina.



Lenny:
Now, I bet you never heard a beautiful girl admit to THAT.

Max:
[Max has discovered that Lenny put a check in Max's safety-deposit box, after "borrowing" $20,000 from the Century West Maintenance account, so that Lenny could treat Linda to a night in Las Vegas] A worthless goddamn CHECK?



Lenny:
What are you getting hysterical about? It was just a LOAN.



Max:
In all my life, I never treated ANYONE like I treated you! You were POOR; I made you RICH. You were DROWNING; I gave you a YACHT! And then you STOLE from me. After I treated you like a son. TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!



Lenny:
You want another check? I'll write you another check right now.



Max:
A check is no damn good. You want to be a liar as well as a thief?



Lenny:
Then tell me what to do. Just tell me, Max.



Max:
[hugs Lenny, then speaks softly] You gotta go. I can't have you around here anymore.

Lenny:
[at the board meeting where he first meets Max] Gentlemen, I won't bore you with the reading of my resume, some of which is actually true... We're born again with each new project. And all your past successes don't cut much ice when it comes to the Big Question: Will It Sell?... Sure, it'll sell. Over the life of the partnership, everyone will enjoy some small tax benefits... realize a nice, safe-though-modest return on their investment. You don't need me for that. But will it SOAR? That's another question... People struggle against smallness all their lives. Let them identify with something BIG!
