Quotes From The Goodbye Girl:
Paula McFadden: I thought you said you were decent.
Elliot Garfield: I am decent. I also happen to be naked.
Paula McFadden: What happened to your eye?
Elliot Garfield: I used it to stop a fist from going through
Elliott Garfield: I happen to have a lease in my pocket.
Are you gonna honor it or what?
Paula McFadden: I have a daughter in my bedroom. That tops
the lease in your pocket.
Elliot Garfield: ...I'd just like to say that last night
was terrific, ok? It was the Grey Cup of romance. I give
it a fat nine on a ten scale. You loose one point for burping
your wine, but all-in-all it was a respectable score.
Paula McFadden: Possession is nine-tenths of the law.
Lucy McFadden: What's the last tenth?
Paula McFadden: Shut up.
Elliot Garfield: You know I liked you from the first time
I met you when you answered the door. I said to myself,
"This is the best half-a-face I ever saw!"
Elliot Garfield: You know I love listening to you talk. I hate
living with you but your conversation is first rate.
Elliot Garfield: I play the guitar whenever I cannot sleep,
and I meditate every morning, complete with chanting and
burning incense, so if you have to walk around I'd appreciate
a little tiptoeing. Also: I sleep in the nude. "Au
buffo." Winter and summer, rain or snow, with the windows
open. And because I may have to go to the potty or to the
fridge in the middle of the night, and because I do not
want to put on jammies which I do not own in the first place,
unless you're looking for a quick thrill or your daughter
an advanced education I'd keep my door closed.
