This is the War Room.” (3) “What we’ve got here is fail­ure to com­mu­ni­cate” (4) “You throw money around like it was just money.” (5) “You don’t want much. You just want the moon.with pars­ley.” (6) “I’m ask­ing you to marry me, you lit­tle fool.” (7) “No, if any­one or­ders Mer­lot, I’m leav­ing” (8) “This is Doyle. I’m sit­tin’ on Frog One.” (9) “I am a dead man and bug­gered to boot” (10) “Wanna dance, or would you rather just suck face?”
