Episode Quotes
Felix: This is all happened in--what do you call it?--California. There is a whole country in-between.
Banacek: Which one?

Henry DeWitt: Banacek. as a favor to me.
Banacek: You're kidding.
Henry DeWitt: Plus 10% of $5 million.
Banacek: That is a start.

John Hargroves: All that talk and he winds up working for me after all.
Henry DeWitt: I'm afraid you're wrong, Mr. Hargroves. He's working for me.
Banacek: You're both wrong. I'm working for me.

Banacek: There is an old Polish proverb that says, "The chicken that clucks the loudest is the one most likely to go to the steamfitter's picnic."

Katherine Wells: How much do you get?
Banacek: Ten percent of the insured value, if I succeed.
Katherine Wells: What do you get if you don't succeed?
Banacek: A little older.

Katherine Wells: Come on, Mr. Banacek.
Banacek: Invitation or order?
Katherine Wells: Whichever you prefer.
Banacek: Well, that's up to you. I don't take orders.
Katherine Wells: Then it's an invitation.
Banacek: Then I accept.

Banacek: You don't think very much of men, do you?
Katherine Wells: In my circle, men seem to be in short supply.
Banacek: Maybe you should make bigger circles.
Katherine Wells: Is that an invitation or a prescription?

Owen Summers: Well, there goes one tough little package.
Banacek: Maybe all she needs is someone to unwrap her. I'm sorry, but you set me up.
Owen Summers: I guess I did.

Banacek: You know what worries me about your thinking, Jay. Sometimes I can really follow it.

Katherine Wells: As long as I have known you, you have never been able to face an unpleasant fact.
Sally James: Oh, I don't know. He's faced you every day.

Banacek: There is an old Polish proverb that says, "Only someone with nothing to be sorry about smiles back at the rear of an elephant."
Sally James: I bet you make those up to fit every occasion, don't you?
Banacek: Me, tamper with the wisdom of the people?
