Quote from Debra

Ray: Just try to put yourself in my place. It's just 'cause you were having so much fun.
Debra: Look, Ray, I told you, let's just drop it. I don't want to discuss this with you anymore.
Ray: How about me, senorita? Will you talk to me?
Debra: No, I don't want to talk to Senor Navel either.
Ray: Oh, that wasn't Senor Navel.
Debra: Well, for the next few days you're gonna be talking to that guy by yourself.

Quote from Debra

Debra: Robert, I totally understand. I totally understand. It's hard for a woman too. You know, waiting to be asked? And then finally some guy starts approaching you and then he asks the tall blonde standing next to you.
Ray: Yeah, tall blondes. Thank God I gave those up.
Debra: Yeah, big shot. And anyway, when's the last time you took me someplace where we weren't suppose to color the menus, huh?

Quote from Marie

Marie: No, no. Bullets won't stop him. Flame his head.
Debra: Marie!
Marie: Oh, Debra, I need to borrow some vanilla.
Debra: I think I have some in this spice drawer.
Marie: Would you get it for me? They're about to waste these mutants.

Quote from Debra

Debra: Damn, he canceled.
Ray: Really? Why did he wait until the last minute like that?
Debra: Some emergency. You know, a rescue thing. Some kid got stuck in a well.
Ray: Stuck in a well.
Debra: Yeah. Who gets stuck in wells anymore? I mean, are there wells in Queens?
Ray: Yeah, see that's the thing. People don't think they're there and then they fall in them.
Debra: He said the kid's gonna be okay but they need a tall guy.
Ray: Yeah. Well, you know, going out with a cop, I mean, that's the life. He's already got a dance partner: danger.
Debra: What kinds of parents are those? You know, they probably had a safety latch on their sock drawer, but that big hole in their backyard, "Oh, gee, we had no idea." I mean, come on, here's an idea for you, childproof your damn well, you stupid morons.

Quote from Ray

Ray: Hey, is this a good movie? [squeezes his belly button] No! No, senor, no. This is a girly flick. Too much talking. Not enough shooting. Are you hungry, Senor Navel? Si! All right. Here you go, buddy. [puts popcorn in his navel]
Debra: Ray, I'm this close to cracking you across the chops.

Quote from Robert

Robert: I don't want to interrupt.
Debra: That's okay. Ray's just talking to his belly button.
Robert: Senor Navel?
Debra: You know him?
Robert: I named him.

Quote from Robert

Ray: You're looking pretty spiffy there. Got a hot date?
Robert: Nah, I was over at the Holiday Inn. They have swing dancing on Thursdays.
Debra: That sounds fun!
Robert: Well, it could have been. But before you dance you gotta get up the nerve to approach a strange woman. Before you do that, you gotta stop throwing up in the men's room.

Quote from Ray

Ray: What are you so nervous about? You've been dating.
Robert: Yeah, but that's dating. This is dancing.
Ray: So?
Debra: Oh, yeah, I know what he means. Dancing is different. You're very vulnerable.
Robert: Yeah. It's a big risk asking someone if you can hold on to them for 10 minutes.
Ray: All I want is five and I get, "Get off of me, I'm sleeping!"
Debra: Idiot.

Quote from Gianni

Marie: Raymond, I need to borrow vanilla.
Gianni: Hey, Mrs. B.
Marie: Hello, Gianni, dear.
Gianni: Are you making your world-famous cannoli?
Marie: Why yes I am.
Gianni: When are you gonna dump that old man and come bake for me?
Marie: Just say the word, Gianni.
Ray: Please, one horror movie at a time, huh?

Quote from Ray

Marie: Where's Debra?
Ray: She's dancing at the Holiday Inn.
Marie: Dancing?
Ray: Yeah, she's picking up a little pocket money. She's swing dancing with Robert.
Marie: Aah, that's nice. Robert's a wonderful dancer.
Ray: Yeah, it works out for everybody. She gets to dance, I get to eat salami in the living room.

Quote from Ray

Ray: So, you and Robert, huh?
Debra: Yeah, I never knew your brother was so much fun.
Ray: Fun, yeah. Ask him to give you a pink belly or a purple nurple some time.
Debra: A what?
Ray: Purple nurple.
Debra: Ah! Get out of here.
Ray: Yeah, see? Not so much fun. I had so many of those, I had to have my right one sewn back on.

Quote from Ray

Debra: But we had a great time.
Ray: Of course you did. I'm sure you complained about me all night, right? "Oh, Ray never takes me dancing." "Ray doesn't hang up his clothes." "Ray can't say the word 'cinnimum'."
Debra: No, we didn't talk about you.
Ray: Yeah? Good. So my name didn't come up at all?
Debra: No, I told you, we had a good time.

Quote from Ray

Robert: Hey, Ray.
Ray: Hey, sorry.
Robert: Yeah, CPR doll. Just practicing.
Ray: Is that a man?
Robert: They are gender-indeterminate.
Ray: So what are you doing? Practicing some of those fancy moves you're gonna do with Debra?
Robert: Yeah, more or less. But it's different with her, because she's-
Ray: Got legs?
Robert: Yeah, but you know, she's so good it's like she doesn't have legs.

Quote from Ray

Debra: Okay, what do you think, huh?
Ray: Kind of skimpy.
Debra: Oh, skimpy.
Ray: What, are you going to a stripper's funeral?
Debra: I think this is great, huh? I mean, I get to go jumpin' jivin' and you get to... What are you doing?
Ray: I don't know. Probably end up watching "The Brave Little Toaster." Unless my mother comes over, in which case we'll watch "When Animals Attack."

Quote from Ray

Debra: Isn't this great, Ray? It's like stepping back into the 1940s, huh?
Ray: Yeah. Can't wait to meet Hitler.
Debra: Come on, let's dance. We'll do the Jitterbug.
Ray: No, how about we do the Maypole? I stand here, you dance around me.
Debra: Oh, come on, I'll lead and you follow, okay? Ray, come on, you promised you'd try to dance.
Ray: That was at our wedding.
