Lucho: “This is going to sound terrible, and I am a terrible, terrible person, but I was waiting - waiting for the moment when his wife and baby get killed.”
Clint: “Why am I not surprised? I’m not surprised Guch.”
Devo: “They call him best of the best, top shelf - OI!”
Lucho: “I felt that with the success of Star Wars, and the orchestral magnificence that it had, they tried the same thing with this movie and obviously it did not work.”
Clint: “Why is 70s hot not the same as hot now?”
Devo: “Perfect example, and I know Guch is gonna back me up, but look at Sigourney in Alien, look at Sigourney in Ghostbusters and look at Sigourney everywhere else.”
Lucho: “That’s absolutely right, that’s a good point ya.”
Devo: “You look at her in Alien, you look at her in Aliens you look at her in Ghostbusters, she was top of the list!”
Clint: “By the way, what the hell kind of name is Sprog?”
Devo: “A strong Australian name!”
Lucho: “Shut your sweet mouth.”
Devo: “She’s got the flu, cut off her arms and legs.”
