  • Jake: It wasn't a stag, it was an engagement party.
    Walter: Some strippers would have been nice, is all I'm saying.
    Jake: For an engagement party?
    Mal: (to Walter) You should have planned my stag!
    Jake: Okay, for the last time, it wasn't a stag, it was an engagement party.
    Rose: It was a lame stag. You should have had strippers.
  • Leslie: Malachy, stay back, we're taking your son to the station.
    Mal: On what charge?
    Jake: Assault on an officer. (he head-butts Sgt. Hood)
  • Rose: You know, I did it for your own good, Malachy. Now that she knows about you, she's going to think you're another mark.
    Mal: So am I? A mark?
    Rose: Well, if I was running a game, I'd shoot higher than you. (Mal gasps) Oh, yeah, there is one other thing: she might have, sort of, stolen my engagement ring. Welcome to my family.
  • Wolf: The boys are calling you "One-Smack Doyle." It's better than "Dick-Smack Doyle," I suppose.
    Jake: Well, that is true, thanks.
