Quotes 

  • Kirk Lazarus : I don't read the script. The script reads me.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Man, I don't drop character 'till I done the DVD commentary.

  • Kirk Lazarus : I know who I am. I'm the dude playin' the dude, disguised as another dude!

  • Kirk Lazarus : Everybody knows you never go full retard.

    Tugg Speedman : What do you mean?

    Kirk Lazarus : Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and he won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. He was a goddamn war hero. You know any retarded war heroes? You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty-handed.

  • Kirk Lazarus : [to Tugg Speedman]  What do you mean, "you people?"

    Alpa Chino : [stares at Lazarus, and then gets angry]  What do *you* mean, "you people?"

    Kirk Lazarus : Huh?

  • Tugg Speedman : This is insane. Are you really going to abandon this movie? We're supposed to be a unit!

    Kirk Lazarus : Suck my unit.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Same thing happened to me when I played Neil Armstrong in Moonshot. They found me in an alley in Burbank trying to re-enter the earth's atmosphere in an old refrigerator box.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Yo asshole! This muthafucka's dead. Ain't no Chris Angel Mindfreak, David Blane trapdoor horse shit jumpin' off here!

  • Alpa Chino : No, I always wanted to. I guess I just never had the courage to ask. It's complicated.

    Kirk Lazarus : Nah! It's simple as pie man: you plant your feet on the ground, you look her square in the eyes you say "Hey! baby, you and me's goin' on a date, that's the end of the story". What's her name?

    Alpa Chino : ...Lance

    Kirk Lazarus : You say 'Listen here, Lance'... Lance? What the fuck did I just hear? Lance?

    Kevin Sandusky : Did you just say Lance?

    Alpa Chino : No! I said Nance. That's what I said, Nance.

    Kevin Sandusky : It sounded like Lance.

    Alpa Chino : Dammit, I'm Alpa Chino! 'I Love Tha Pussy', aight? Lay yo ass back down and look at the stars.

    Kirk Lazarus : When you wrote 'I Love Tha Pussy', was you thinking about danglin your dice on Lance's forehead?

  • Tran - Flaming Dragon Compound : Where is your farm...

    [points a gun at Lazarus] 

    Tran - Flaming Dragon Compound : ...AMERICAN?

    Kirk Lazarus : My farm? Here's my mothafuckin' farm!

    [pulls out guns and starts firing and whooping] 

    Kirk Lazarus : Kwan lo! I'm a lead farmer!

  • Tugg Speedman : The dudes are emerging...

    Kirk Lazarus : [in black voice]  He's right, you know? I'm NOT Sergeant Lincoln Osiris...

    [rips off fake hair to reveal blonde hair] 

    Kirk Lazarus : [in Irish accent while taking fake sideburns off]  ... nor am I Father O'Mallie...

    Kirk Lazarus : [in low growl voice, while removing fake beard]  ... or Neil Armstrong...

    [Removes contact lenses to reveal blue eyes underneath] 

    Kirk Lazarus : [in natural Australian accent]  I... I think I might be nobody.

    Kevin Sandusky : Wow! The insecurity level with you guys is ridiculous!

  • Tugg Speedman : There were times while I was playing Jack where I felt...

    [pause] 

    Tugg Speedman : ...retarded. Like, really retarded.

    Kirk Lazarus : Damn!

    Tugg Speedman : In a weird way I had to sort of just free myself up to believe that is was ok to be stupid or dumb.

    Kirk Lazarus : To be a moron.

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah!

    Kirk Lazarus : To be moronical.

    Tugg Speedman : Exactly, to be a moron.

    Kirk Lazarus : An imbecile.

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah!

    Kirk Lazarus : Like the dumbest mother fucker that ever lived.

    Tugg Speedman : [pause]  When I was playing the character.

  • Alpa Chino : And why am I in this movie? Maybe it's because I just knew I had to represent, because they had one good part in here for a black man and they gave it to Crocodile Dundee!

    Kirk Lazarus : Pump your brakes, kid. That man's a national treasure.

    Alpa Chino : I just wanted to thrown another shrimp on your barbie!

    Kirk Lazarus : That shit ain't funny.

    Kevin Sandusky : Hey, fellas... it's hot! We're tired! It stinks!

    Alpa Chino : I ain't fuckin' with you, Kangaroo Jack. I'm sorry the dingo ate your baby!

    Kirk Lazarus : You know that's a true story? Lady lost a kid. You're about to cross some fuckin' lines.

    Kevin Sandusky : Guys, relax!

    Alpa Chino : You know what? Fuck that, man! I'm sick of this koala-huntin' nigga tellin' me-

    [is cut off as Lazarus slaps him; goes to punch back] 

    Kirk Lazarus : [blocking the punch and pulling Alpa into an embrace]  For four hundred years, that word has kept us down.

    Alpa Chino : What the fuck?

    Kirk Lazarus : Took a whole lotta tryin' just to get up that hill. Now we're up in the big leagues, gettin' our turn at bat. As long as we live, it's you and me, baby...

    Alpa Chino : [pulling away]  That's the theme song to The Jeffersons. Man, you really need help.

    Kirk Lazarus : Just because it's a theme song don't mean it's not true.

  • Tugg Speedman : I have a son now. Little Half Squat.

    Kirk Lazarus : Who in crikey fuck is Half Squat?

  • Kirk Lazarus : Cover me, limp dick fuck-ups!

  • Kevin Sandusky : There's no way we make it over that ridge before sundown.

    Kirk Lazarus : All right fellas, we're gonna make camp, rest up. Y'all might be in for a treat. You know back before the war broke out I was a saucier in San Antone. I bet I could collar up some of them greens, yeah, some crawfish out the paddy, yo'! Ha! I'm makin' some crabapples for dessert now, yo! Hell yeah, ha!

    Alpa Chino : [mocking Kirk]  Hell yeah! Ha! That's how we all talk? We all talk like dis, "suh"? Yes suh, ha! Yeah mmm-hmm get some crawfish, and some ribs, ha! Ye-aah. You're Australian! Be Australian! Excuse me, Kangaroo Jack!

    [hops away like a kangaroo] 

    Kirk Lazarus : [confused]  I get excited about my foods, man.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Stop tailgatin' me, ya pasty teabag! I'm goin' potty. Wanna hold my dick?

  • Kirk Lazarus : I'm just like a little boy, playin' with his dick when he's nervous.

  • Alpa Chino : [watching Tugg reenact Simple Jack]  Damn. And I thought the movie was bad.

    Kirk Lazarus : Well to the man's credit, he has eased up on the retard throttle.

  • Alpa Chino : Yeah... but those dudes was trained soldiers.

    Kirk Lazarus : [cocks unloaded pistol]  Yeah! And we trained actors, mothafucka! Time to man up. And I ain't gonna sugarcoat. Some of us might not even make it back.

    Jeff Portnoy : What do you mean? Like, not on the same flight?

  • Alpa Chino : That's the theme song for the Jeffersons!

    Kirk Lazarus : Man, just cause it's a theme song don't make it not true.

  • Kevin Sandusky : You guys all read the script, right?

    Kirk Lazarus : I don't read the script, script reads me.

    [pause] 

    Kevin Sandusky : What the hell does that even mean?

    Kirk Lazarus : [shouting]  What you getting at with the book, scripts, spit that shit out, man!

    [He smiles then frowns] 

  • Kirk Lazarus : You gonna focus up now, motherfucker and say it! "It's me, Tugg!"

    Tugg Speedman : It's Me Tugg.

    Kirk Lazarus : That's right! Now, Tugg who?

    Tugg Speedman : Tugg who? I don't know. Who are you?

    Kirk Lazarus : Me? I know who I am. I'm a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.

    Kevin Sandusky : What?

    Kirk Lazarus : You a dude that don't know what dude he is!

    Tugg Speedman : Or are you a dude who has no idea what dude he is and claims to know what dude he is...

    Jeff Portnoy : What the fuck are you guys talking about?

    Tugg Speedman : ...by playing other dudes.

    Kirk Lazarus : I know what dude I am!

    Tugg Speedman : You're scared.

    Kirk Lazarus : I ain't scared. Scared of what?

    Tugg Speedman : Or scared of who?

    Kirk Lazarus : Scared of who!

    Kevin Sandusky : Come on guys. We really need to go!

    Tugg Speedman : Scared of you!

  • Alpa Chino : [why he's in the movie]  I had to represent. Cause they had one good role for a black man, and they gave it to Crocodile Dundee!

    Kirk Lazarus : Pump your brakes, kid, that man's a national treasure.

  • Jeff Portnoy : So, what's the plan, man? You gonna talk Vietnamese to those dudes?

    Kirk Lazarus : No, no. Mandarin Chinese. What I can tell, it's what they're speaking down there.

    Jeff Portnoy : How the hell do you know Chinese?

    Kirk Lazarus : Land of Silk and Money with Gong Li. Second Globe, third Oscar. I prepped for that one by working in a Beijing textile factory for eight months.

  • Kevin Sandusky : Now, if you recall that whole hullabaloo where Hollywood was split into schisms, some studios backing Blu-ray disc, others backing HD DVD. People thought it would come down to pixel rate or refresh rate, and they're pretty much the same. What it came down to was a combination between gamers and porn. Now, whichever format porno backs is usually the one that becomes the uh most successful. But, you know, Sony, every PlayStation 3 has a Blu-ray in it.

    Kirk Lazarus : You talkin' to me this whole time?

    Kevin Sandusky : I was talking to whoever was listening.

    Kirk Lazarus : Jesus Christ, man!

  • Kirk Lazarus : [in an interview on Access Hollywood]  Being an actor's no different than being a rugby player or construction worker, save for the fact that my tools are the mechanisms which trigger human emotion.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Yo asshole, this muthafucka's dead ain't no Chris Angel Mind Freak, David Blaine trap door, horseshit jumpin' off here.

    Tugg Speedman : Hey, you wanna get on the train here or you wanna ruin another take, huh?

    Kirk Lazarus : Ain't no goddamn takes, ain't no goddamn motion picture!

    Tugg Speedman : Are you sure?

    Kirk Lazarus : Oh yea.

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah?

    Kirk Lazarus : For certain man.

    Tugg Speedman : Then why are you still in character? Hm?

    Kirk Lazarus : [pause]  I know but I don't have to tell you...

    Tugg Speedman : You don't know.

    Kirk Lazarus : Man, I don't drop character 'till I done the DVD commentary.

  • Kirk Lazarus : You more shredded than a Julienne salad, man.

  • Alpa Chino : Drink Booty Sweat, baby! Drink Booty Sweat!

    Kirk Lazarus : [mockingly]  Yeah, get him chuggin' on some of Alpa's ass-water. That'll bring him around, it's a cure-all...

  • Tugg Speedman : My son gave this to me.

    Kirk Lazarus : That's your stick buddy?

    Tugg Speedman : His name is Twiggman.

    Kirk Lazarus : Does he want to come with us?

  • Kirk Lazarus : Action Jackson can't cry, that's what's going down.

    Tugg Speedman : You know what Kirk, I'm ready to do the scene!

    Kirk Lazarus : What scene? The scene is about emotionality. Where is it? Now it's time to flip the script! We'll get to Chinese New Year waitin' for my man to cry.

  • Kirk Lazarus : Hey, man, you know how in Rambo I, he was big but a little puffy, and then Rambo II, he got all shredded up?

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah.

    Kirk Lazarus : That's kind of how you look right now.

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah?

    Kirk Lazarus : Not Rambo I but II.

    Tugg Speedman : Really?

    Kirk Lazarus : Yeah, when he was cut up.

    Tugg Speedman : I'm not that... I mean, that's what I'm going for, but you know...

    Kirk Lazarus : Come on, dude. You more shredded than a julienne salad, man.

    Tugg Speedman : Thanks.

    Kirk Lazarus : What's the secret, dude?

    Tugg Speedman : It's a diet. I'm just dieting.

    Kirk Lazarus : Really? Cause I'm trying to come up a little, but it's just... It's tough.

    Tugg Speedman : You look good.

    Kirk Lazarus : Any tips?

    Tugg Speedman : What?

    Kirk Lazarus : Any tips, you got?

    Tugg Speedman : There's, like, the pineapple...

    Kirk Lazarus : - Give me that goddamn map!

    [Snatches map from Tugg Speedman]

    Kirk Lazarus : Yeah, but he gave it to you for us.

    Tugg Speedman : Uh-Huh. Yeah.

    Kirk Lazarus : Okay.

    Tugg Speedman : I got it.

    Kirk Lazarus : You got it upside down.

    Tugg Speedman : Thank you.

    Kirk Lazarus : Letters go one way and the numbers another. I'm just. Dude, I'm tryin'. I got your back man.

    Tugg Speedman : Well I-I'm cool, alright?

    Kirk Lazarus : You are cool?

    Tugg Speedman : Yeah, but...

    Kirk Lazarus : Is your character dyslectic?

    Tugg Speedman : No, the character is not dyslec...

    Kirk Lazarus : So you a cartographer!

  • Kirk Lazarus : Here's my motherfuckin' farm!

  • Alpa Chino : [slaps Lazarus]  Told you I'd tag you back.

    Kirk Lazarus : Can I tell you I'm sorry for any offense I might've caused, man? I just got caught up in bein'...
