Quotes and Lines
Karl: A word to the wise from an old man before you go. Remember only this: the measure of a man is what’s left when fame falls away… oh, and another thing: get as much sex as you can!
Rick: NO! Not really! In fact, I’ll tell you why you boys will never be signed to this label. You look like a pair of mental fortune tellers from a gypsy fair. And Hammond liked you, therefore, I hate you! I wouldn’t sign you to this label if you paid me a hundred grand and let me John Paul Pope your mother.
Ivan McCormick: You made the worst decision of my life!
