Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Penny: Do you want me around or not? Do you even like me?

Chuck Barris: Ofcourse I like you! Penny...

Penny: How much?

Chuck Barris: What?

Penny: I need to know how much you like me.

Chuck Barris: know what that means! How much? How could I read a person in that way?

Penny: You could if you felt it. If you felt it, it would be easy. You would

[sighs dreamingly]

Penny: just spread your arms as wide as they would go and say: "This much, Penny."

Chuck Barris: Everything... everything is complicated. Nothing is black and white like that.

Penny: [cries] Do you want me around or not? 'Cause if you don't it's okay, just tell me.

Chuck Barris: Hey, hey...

[kisses her]

Chuck Barris: I love you, Penny. In my way. Maybe not that crazy head-over-heels-thing, but what is that anyway? Romantic love, isn't that just an illusion?

Penny: [stops crying] You just said you love me, right?

Penny: What are you?

Chuck Barris: Jew.

Penny: Oh, I had one of those once. But he was separatist. He was Ashka Nazi.

Chuck Barris: Ashkenazi.

Penny: Right, Ashka Nazi. I haven't had one of those yet.

Chuck Barris: You're a romantic.

Jim Byrd: He's a bad guy. He's one of the bad guys.

Chuck Barris: Bad for the US, right, Jim? Not bad in the absolute sense. Just bad for the US.

Jim Byrd: Don't fuckin' dance with me. Renda's bad for the Tea & Biscuit Company. He's bad for me personally. You work for me. Renda's bad for me... You're now officially a patriotic citizen of the United States of Jim Byrd. There's no backing out now. We let you in on everything. You don't play. You don't leave. You understand that? You don't play... You don't leave.

Jim Byrd: Think of it as a hobby. Something you do to relax. You're an "assassination enthusiast."

Jim Byrd: You're 32 years old, and you've achieved nothing. Jesus Christ was dead and alive again by 33. You better get crackin'.

Jim Byrd: You're an assassination enthusiast. A murder buff.

Jim Byrd: You're gonna have to grow up. There's a war on.

Patricia: Insane asylums are filled with people who think they're Jesus or Satan. Very few have delusions of being a guy down the block who works for an insurance company.

Patricia: Very good Chuck. I am pleasantly surprised, you're not like the other murderers.

Patricia: You're kind of cute... in a homely sort of way.
