  • Motel Owner: She seemed like a nice girl.
    Jake: Yeah, that's what they usually say about serial killers.
  • Mal: If she was leaving town, you'd think she'd have packed her panties.
    Jake: Oh my... I hate it when you say that word.
    Mal: What, panties? Doctors say it, it's clinical.
    Jake: It's not clinical. When you say it, it's disgusting, all right?
    Mal: Panties.
  • Leslie: You're a pain in the arse, you know that?
    Jake: Ah, if you'd only give me the chance, I could be.
  • Rose: (to Des) Listen up, kid. If I were you, I'd have that car clean before Jake gets back. And stay away from the young Tinny. Otherwise, it won't be Jake you should be worried about.
  • Leslie: I'm going to want to talk to you later.
    Jake: Oh, that's great! You can call me any time; you've got my number.
    Leslie: Do I ever!
