Episode Quotes
Trunk: But what I wanted to say--what I wanted to say!--is that the military is asking for our assistance.
Hammer: The military? No problem. My tank is gassed up and ready to roll.
Trunk: The military doesn't need your tank. It needs your eyes.
Hammer: They're ready to roll, too. See?

Hammer's Gun: Trust me. You know what you're doing.
Hammer: You talking to me?
Hammer's Gun: That's right, amigo. I'm talking to you.
Hammer: You talking to me?
Hammer's Gun: Read my lips. Yeah, I'm talking to you.
Hammer: Well, I'm listening.
Trunk: Hammer, who are you talking to?
Hammer: I'm not talking. He is. See his little muzzle move?

Wanda Lubeck: You know what? I hope there's no men in Heaven.
Prostitute #2: No chance. There all in Hell.
Wanda Lubeck: Thank God.
Prostitute #2: Just one problem. I don't think we're going to Heaven.
