George (after the cops said they just wanted to question Benny but arrested her on sight): Hey, you lied to me! That's why nobody likes cops. You never see a fireman saying "Jump" and then he takes away the trampoline thing!

George (to Ernie): Why didn't you tell me they were moving the factory?
Ernie: I left you a message.
George: Dude, I don't listen to your messages anymore.
Ernie: Why?
George: Dude, you call me every time you see a hot girl on the freeway. Then, you take up 5 minutes of my voicemail saying, "George, George, George!"

George (to Benny): You told me my dad was dead. You didn't tell me I had a sister. You made me dress up like a girl so we could get in free for mother-daughter day at the track!
Benny: What's your point?
George: I still sit when I pee!

Prosecutor (about Benny): We have a videotape from the parking lot security camera. We have blown up the tape and you can see the defendant laughing and stuffing money into her bra. Also, she is wearing the same shirt she is wearing now!
[Benny looks down at her shirt & then incredulously at the photo]
Judge: Trial is set for three weeks from today.

Jonathon K. Martin: (concerning the charges against his client Benny) All right...If we're gonnna get this thing thrown out, you have to make a good impression on the judge, so when you talk about yourself, accentuate the qualitites that make you look sympathetic.
George: She (referring to Benny) don't have any of those! Stick to the facts , Mom!!
Benny: The facts are gonna get me sent to jail!!
Jonothan: Facts are subjective. Last night I had a romantic liasion with my secretary in the office; My wife called, I told her I couldn't come home because...I had "something on my desk" that "needed my attention". Now, did I lie?
George: (to Jonathan) Cochino, Yeah, You lied!
George: (to Benny) Look, Mom, don't do this, Okay?? If you get caught lying, You're gonna make this worse.
Benny: (to George) Yeah, You're right, George. lying never works. (She then lies to George, just as the preliminary hearing is about to begin and the judge, Judge Alvarez, gets ready to come out of her chambers) You're the smartest guy I know!
