  • Jake: ...I had to smash a pint on a guy's head; it's a long story.
    Mal: See, ever since you started this 'love moratorium', you've been totally out of whack.
    Jake: 'Love moratorium'? What is wrong with you? I'm taking a break from women for a while, that's all. And stop talking about my sex life, you're going to make me puke.
    Mal: Fine, we'll wait in silence.
  • Jake: I don't want you to die; sue me.
    Mal: You should write greeting cards, you've got a real flair for sentiment.
  • Mal: It's clear why Leslie wants nothing to do with you; you never listen to a word she says.
    Jake: I listen... I just have a problem with the obeying parts.
